October 13–But God! Revisited.

Oh! The truth of God…and the timing of God…and the sense of humor (?) of God!

When I posted the Devotional for yesterday, October 12, (in the late afternoon of October 11) I had no idea that I would be dealing with the reality of “My flesh and heart may fail…” quite so soon! 

Long story…very short: I woke up in horrendous pain a little after 2am, and ended up in the ER. I’ll spare you the rest of the details, except to say that I’m fine. And, by God’s good grace, I will recover fully (and quickly!) from one ugly urinary tract-kidney infection. (Think Paul Edgecomb’s excruciating uti in “The Green Mile”)

But God!!!???

My flesh and my heart may fail,

but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

Psalm 73:26

 But God! And, YES, this is still my truth and my experience: God is the strength of my heart…and of my mind…and of my body…and God is my portion…the One and Only who gives me all that I truly need for my life. No matter what my circumstances may be…or how unexpectedly…or suddenly they may change!

Oh! The truth of God…and the timing of God…and the sense of humor (?) of God!  And, Oh! The amazing and perfect love and grace of God…which is present with us, and available to us, always! No buts about it!!

In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane

  1. Dearest Sylane,

    I am SOOO glad to hear that it wasn’t anything worse (although uti are nothing to chuckle over).

    Interestingly enough, I had my own “But God!” moment last Tuesday, where I wound up in the ER, too. Afraid of it being a heart attack, but turned out to be a severe panic attack instead. God had much to say to me that day as I sat alone in one of the cold little ER patient rooms for about 3 hours, hooked up to the machines. Reminding me again that He was and IS the strength of my heart and will be my portion forever!

  2. I am so thankful that you are ok after your emergency room experience! I love you so much and am thankful for you in so many ways!
