March 31, 2015 – 3 years ago – the beginning of the Cholangio journey. From my daily Journal…
God-Sized Humor? March 31, 2015
“As I boldly approach the throne….”
Devotional reading this morning – for March 31th from Sarah Young’s book “Jesus Calling”.
Today’s verse Psalm 34:8 “TASTE and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.”
“Taste and see that the Lord is good….” Of course – 🙂 Really, God?! Yes.
Today is my first EVER colon prep day. Hooray! Tomorrow is my first colonoscopy and endoscopy. A normal rite of passage for a 50 (ok, 51)-year-old, but add to that a nagging fear of finding MORE cancer…
Full day of black coffee, chicken broth and green jello. AND 2 bottles of nasty tasting colon prep juice. And yet, this being Holy Week, I’m ‘slammed in the face’ with this being NOTHING like the “cup” Jesus offered at Passover, and especially the “cup” he asked God the Father to take away from him. My “cup” is a light-hearted champagne toast in comparison.
I do not believe in coincidences. I have to believe that TODAY, in MY circumstance, I’m chosen to feel closer to Jesus than ever! So, today I will Taste. I will take Refuge.
I also have the JOY of knowing that tomorrow, for all those people who over the years have said that I was Full of S#!T – for tomorrow, at least, I will prove them wrong!
