Not Good News, But GREAT News!

These were the exact words of my Cardiologist today, "I don't have good news about your heart today. I have GREAT news!"

Thank you all for your prayers! ♥

I had my follow-up appointment with my Cardiologist today to discuss the results of my stress echo and echo I had undergone within the past few weeks.

All glory and praise be to God my Father who gives us all good things according to His will! Whether the news was good or seemingly "bad" (meaning, it wasn't what I wanted to hear); I trust what the LORD my God has said - He alone is good, therefore everything He does is good, regardless of how I may feel about it, or how others may view it. The truth is the truth. And God is Truth.

"O LORD, what is man that You regard him,
or the son of man that you think of him?"
~ Psalm 144:3

"As for me, I am poor and needy, but the Lord takes thought for me.
You are my Help and my Deliverer; do not delay O my God!"
~ Psalm 40:17

In the past few days, the Lord has so kindly reminded me of how ungrateful I can be and how often I grumble rather than give Him praise and thanksgiving. Instead of keeping in the forethought of my mind all that I know I deserve (God's full wrath), yet receive all that I do not deserve (God's abounding grace and mercy in Christ), I too often get greedy, and self-righteous and allow my sinful flesh to deceive me into believing that I ought not be grateful for any good, but ask for more and more.

But today, I am resigned to have my heart (my strong and healthy heart) to be near my Lord, and my lips full of praise and thanksgiving to Him. For my God is good! My God is sovereign! And my God loves me! Therefore everything in my life is good, no matter my circumstances.

So even though everything else in my body may be falling apart, I have a very healthy and strong heart and excellent eye sight! A heart for God and eyes only for Jesus! What more can a girl want?

All to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain -
He washed it white as snow."
