"We do not know what we should pray for...but the Spirit ....makes intercession for us." Romans 8:26 NKJV
This verse describes exactly how I feel. Not knowing how or what to pray for. Nothing coming from my lips. Just tears. And the great thing about God is...He understands my tears. He hears them. He can. He will. He makes sense of my wordless prayers. Only He can do that. I take great comfort in knowing my God is real and He knows my heart even when the words don't come.
I'm thankful for family, friends and all of you web friends. You listen to me when I'm hurting. You take the time to be there. Even if I am a blubbering mess. You know. You console. You pray. You offer a shoulder. You cheer me up.
For all that, I'm thankful.
Mom still hasn't heard from her doctor on exactly why the surgery didn't work. She spoke with Trina (transplant coordinator), yesterday a couple of times. Trina wants to speak to the doctor in person to know exactly what went wrong. He was in surgery all day again yesterday. Can you imagine what these doctors go through? I know they make the big bucks, but imagine the stress. Anyway, Trina hopes to find out something today. If not, surely by Monday. Trina expressed her concern to Mom about it not working. She also consoled Mom by saying if it was something bad, the doctor would be pressing the issue by now. So, we are resigned to the fact....we will not worry! God knows and as Deb commented, "this may have took us by surprise, but not God." She is right. God already knows the outcome to Mom's heart. After all, He placed that heart in her. He knows if it is time for her to receive another one. Whatever the outcome may be....it is for His glory.
I'm thanking God today for His interpreter, the Holy Spirit, that connects me to Him. We can have a good quiet, crying time together and He understands!
I will try and keep you all posted as we find out more about Mom.
Thank you for you love and support....especially for all the prayers!
