Absorbing God’s Word
“The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your bones.” Isaiah 58:11
Applying God’s Word
What a prophetic scripture for someone with a debilitating injury to any of the human joints; knee, hip, shoulder, neck, etc. The first knee replacement happened around 1968, with implants lasting about ten years. The current procedure is less intrusive and the implants last twenty to thirty years.
On March 19, my wife will undergo full replacement of her right knee, which is presently bone on bone. The surgery will take about two hours, an hour in recovery and a one or two night stay in the hospital. She will have three weeks of no driving and a few months of physical therapy. Total recovery time is between three and six months.
We solicit your prayers for Louise, the surgeon and all the medical staff prior to, during and after surgery, please. We are praying for no interference from the evil one, no pain, no complications, no clotting and a speedy recovery.
This scripture rings true for Louise and so many others who, once again, have an opportunity to live their lives pain-free.
Accounting of God’s Word
Am I thankful to the Lord for always being my guide, satisfying my prayer requests and for strengthening my bones?
