Just a little update regarding my kidney transplant . Sophia(my kidneys name) is getting better adjusted to me and I to her. I just want to offer a word of encouragement to others that might be in the midst of trials and test. Trust God.! Believe God! Obey God! Trust God!!
Remember when God was speaking to the devil regarding Job.
3 Then the Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered My servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, one who fears God and shuns evil? And still he holds fast to his integrity, although you incited Me against him, to destroy him without cause.”
4 So Satan answered the Lord and said, “Skin for skin! Yes, all that a man has he will give for his life. 5 But stretch out Your hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh, and he will surely curse You to Your face!”
God was confident that the devil could not shake or break Job’s faith and trust in God. God had confidence in Job and Job had confidence in God. I believe that Job’s mindset was ,If God believe in me then I will pass this test.
That is the attitude I had to adopt. If God believe that I could go thru all these 12 years of Kidney issues/issues with my blood not being purified,then I can and will do. When I was in school I wanted to get the best grade possible. I wanted to pass this test with flying color. Now as I look at all that I have learned and accomplished through the help and grace of God I am floored. The bible says:
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me” 2Cor 12:9 NIV
So I boast in my weakness so that you might see and understand the true strength of My God. Grateful does not even begin to explain how I feel.
Dont give up on God because He wont give up on You. We hear people say that God is able. But more important than God being able He is willing . Many times we know people who could help us but they just do not want to. God is not like that. He is willing and able to meet you at the point of your needs. Reach out to Him. Be vulnerable before him. Be transparent.
