Thankful Thursday


I am very thankful this week for God leading me to a new Doctor. She is caring and very compassionate. Everything you would want a Doctor to be. She is checking me out from head to toe, trying to see what all is going on with me. So far, the news has not been good. I am not well at all, there are several problems going on at once. I do not know what my future holds in store for me, but I do know Who is holding my future. I praise Him for being my true physician, my healer, my strength, my Father, my dear Saviour. As for my health, what will be, will be. My life does not belong to me, it belongs to my precious Creator. Only He knows the exact number of days I have been appointed on this earth. His timing is always accurate, I only want His will to be done. I am so thankful for the life He has blessed me with. Being here, married to my lovebug, and being held securely in the hands of my Father. What else could I possibly ask for?? Have thine own way Lord, have thine own way.

Peggy said...

Blessings sweet friend Denise...and of course, I'll miss you but I'll sneak in a visit each week to see how you're doing...especially with this grim discovery of everything out of whack. You proclaimed Him for who He is...and now receive that within you
for HE IS ABLE...I'm thankful that you found a doctor that is compassionate and seemingly very thorough...but now that you have the report...BELIEVE that HE has not brought you & Lovebug this far
to leave you with nothing but the BEST! Hold on and do all you are able to do in the power of His Spirit & good medical advice & wisdom! Love you & big hugs! Peggy

I am so thankful that God leads us to the right doctor who is a perfect fix for us. There is so much more to being a good doctor than just knowing the medical side...the bedside manner is huge. I know...I've worked for doctors for 25+ years.

I am lifting you up in prayer for your health and His healing power to flow through you...from the top of your head to the soles of your feet...In Jesus Name!

Be blessed in His name tonight.

Denise,

Have I told you that my week would not be complete without stopping here for TT praises. Thank you for your faithful thanksgiving every week.

On another note, I am so thankful you have found a new doctor. I am praying too for wisdom and God's healing hand upon you.

Oh Lord Jesus, I ask for your wise hand to rest upon Denise's physician. Guide her to a proper diagnosis and treatment plan. Lord, heal Denise in your will and may her divine healing bring honor to your name. In Jesus name, Amen

Daphine said...

Praise God for a doctor who actually cares and is thoroughly checking you out.

I promise to pray for your health and for complete healing... whatever it is. Keep us posted!

Blessings to you Denise!

Michele Williams said...

I'm so glad you like your new doctor. None of us know how many days we have left. We all should live each day as though it would be our last... think of how different the world would be.... LOVE... yes, I believe LOVE would be the theme of the world if we all lived that way....

I love you my friend.

Cheryl said...

Denise,

I think at times we forget that our lives or the lives of people we care about are not ours. He is in control. I'm praying and standing firm the Lord led you to this new doctor, so she can get to the bottom of this and you will be very healthy.

Love,
Cheryl

You are truly a living testimony as you look to the only One who holds your future in His hands. I'm sorry you are dealing with many health related issues. But I admire how you are trusting the Lord. I'm also glad that you found a physician that you can talk to and relate to, which is so important and unfortunately ... all too often rare these days.
