6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6&7 NLT
Peace. It’s an interesting thing. You notice when its not there, and when it is there, you marvel at its mysterious power.
This time tomorrow, I will be waking up from my posterior fossa decompression surgery for Chiari 1 Malformation and Syringomyelia.
I’ve been inundated with text messages, emails, posts, and phone calls from people I love and trust, who are encouraging and praying for me. A common question I’m asked is “How are you feeling”? The truth is, there are a few nerves as I’ve never had surgery before, however, what I feel the most is the greatest sense of the aforementioned peace. Mysterious, necessary, life-giving, God-breathed peace. And for that reason, I am grateful.
Thank you for all of those who are continuing to pray. Also, please pray for my loved ones who will be waiting at the hospital while I’m in surgery. I would love for them to be able to experience the same rich peace that I have while I’m under.
Here is a timeline of what the day will look like tomorrow:
4:30AM – Wake up.
5:45AM – Check in @ Hoag.
6:30AM – Surgery prep, paperwork, etc.
7:30AM – Actual surgery time.
11:00AM – Celebrating the beginning of a life without the debilitating symptoms and dangerous realities of Chiari 1 and Syringomyelia!
Please check back here tomorrow for updates. My good friend Alex Jones will be posting on my behalf.
God is good.
