In God We Trust

Philippians 2:10-11 That at the Name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

For the past six weeks, both my husband and sweet neighbor, Mrs. Jan, have been taking me every day to the infusion center at the hospital to get IV antibiotics, via a PICC line.  

It would be nice to say that I’ve maintained a positive attitude the entire time, but that would not be true.

Last week, I was just starting to get some spunk back, as I could see the light at the end of the tunnel (and it wasn’t a train). 

One of the nurses who had been taking care of me throughout this process , asked me when my last infusion was scheduled.  I excitedly told her it was this Thursday.  Additionally, I included how excited I would be to get the PICC line removed!

Upon hearing my delight, she said that many times the doctor will order the PICC line to remain, even after the treatment, in case other medication is required.  

My spirit lowered and my disposition changed drastically.

The entire weekend I was bummed, I just wanted to crawl into a hole and not associate with anyone.

Monday came, Jonathan went with me to my appointment where they told me that indeed they would order the PICC line removal for March 23rd. 

Finally, the voice of reason! When I went to my infusion today, orders were not in yet, so the same negative nursie, informed me that she knew the people over at my doctor’s office, and would make a call if the release fax didn’t come in soon.

I didn’t want THAT nurse speaking to anyone on my behalf!  I would end up with the PICC line indefinitely if she got involved!

At last!  This afternoon I got a voicemail saying that the doctor sent in removal orders, and everything is on schedule as it should be!  Praise God!

Our Lord wants me to accept whatever His Will is, even if it meant the line had to remain!

What does any of this have to do with the above verse?  Well, we serve God Whose POWER and AUTHORITY commands every knee and every tongue confess Jesus, to the glory of God the Father.

His Will and Ways are perfect.  

So, regardless of a situation’s outcome,  He is the Lord.  Worthy of all praise! There is NONE like Him.

Almighty God

Thank You for this day

Please forgive my sins against You, others and myself

Please cause me to walk in obedience

In the ways You have planned for me

Without grumbling or complaining, but with a cheerful heart

Let my words and actions glorify You

In the Name of Jesus



About voicevessel bwc

First, and most importantly, I love Jesus Christ and I trust in Him as my Lord and Savior. I was raised in a Christian home by a godly dad and mom (who planned and had me in July before turning 42 in August), and 5 older siblings. My father passed away when I was 7 and my mother (who went to be with the Lord in 2005 at 81) never remarried. As a child, I was bullied at school, so I did not have many friends. I didn't want to tell my mom this because I knew she had enough worry being a widow at 50. I know what it is like to be lonely. As an adult, God showed me the value of His Friendship and has blessed me, too, with rich relationships with dear friends who also love the Lord. My husband and I (married 31 years as of 2020), have three wonderful, adult children and son-in-law as well as three darling grandchildren. Along with many others, my husband lost his job, but we refuse to be fearful or angry. The Lord has provided for us and we are so thankful for the opportunity to express gratitude through personal contact and occasional memories I share through writing. I believe the Lord has given me a venue to engage with others and a means to share His Word. Thank you for checking out my page. I hope you enjoy what you read. If there is anything positive or insightful in the devotionals (NOT CALLING MY WRITING "INSPIRED" by any means!), I give all credit and glory to Jesus Christ! On the other side of that, when something makes no sense, that's all me
