chariots and horses

Psalm 20:7  Some trust in chariots and some trust in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God!

In life, we trust in so many things to get us through our days.  Back in "the day", soldiers trusted in their super strong chariots and horses to get them through a battle.  What or who do you trust to get you through your battles?

Well, in our house, we trust in Jesus = the Lord our God! 

My quiet time this morning took me back to this bible verse that I've been studying - by back I mean that in the past few days dealing with Hannah's illness, I'd not been having my morning quiet time.

It was so good to sit down this morning and commune with my God.  It made me instantly want to write about it - share about it!


I am really blessed with more than I deserve!  Yet, like a good father, He gives it - blessings - anyway.  Sometimes it's not all the blessings I want or I think I need, but everyday, He blesses!

Hannah is doing so much better, and I'm trusting that she will continue to do better - and if not, I'll continue to trust in my God who will get her through.

I've said it before on this blog, and I'll say it again.  My rainbow has special plans from God for her life! I know it!!

Hannah's UTI seems to be gone.  Her antibiotics seem to have done the trick.  I go back to the doctor in two weeks for her four month check up and for the doctor to take another urine sample (via a bag and not a catheter) just to be sure the infection is really all gone.

She also has to go  for a sonogram of her kidneys to see if any damage was done by the UTI - and again I say, I'm trusting in God that there isn't damage and that if there is, He has a plan for it - preferably healing ;-)

You just have to trust in God - or, as a mom, you'll go crazy!

Sometimes - with a UTI - random bacteria travels up the urethra and - BAM - you have a UTI that might never happen again.  Other times, it is something called kidney reflux.  However, the doctor has said that they don't do testing for that anymore until she's had at least two UTIs. 

I'm trusting that there won't be anymore UTIs - I'm trusting in God, not in chariots and/or horses, so I think I'm good ;-)

I'm trusting that this week is going to go well!  Problems at work will come... and they will go... as they always do, and I will continue on doing what I always do - working for the Lord.

I'm trusting that God will give me the strength to be all that I need to be at home - Michael's out of town again this week - and at my church and for my church family.

Trust - it's so freeing.

Who or what are you trusting in?
