Bright and early tomorrow morning, I am having another heart cath with an angioplasty or stent placement to follow. I have been through all of this before. A bunch. Someone asked me if I get frustrated having to do this a couple of times a year and I’ll admit that it can get frustrating. I’ve prayed and lots of other people have prayed that God would heal my heart, but so far, God in His sovereignty has chosen not to. You know what? That’s just fine with me, because God is God and I’m not. He knows what’s best for me and He’s given me the grace and health to keep on keeping on. There is a verse in Scripture that I try to live by and that is Matthew 6:33 “But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you.” As I get older, this verse means more to me because as I look back over my life, I realize God has never failed me. When I have found myself in a mess, it wasn’t God who put me there, it was me seeking me first instead of me allowing God to stay on the throne of my life. Maybe you are going through some challenging times yourself. Can I encourage you to keep on seeking God and keep on doing your best to live in the center of His will. Put God first and leave the consequences to Him.
Be blessed and be a blessing . . . Bro. Andy
