Sunday, January 3, 2010: Twas the Night Before . . .

Twas the night before the appointment and all through the house,
the anxiety was increasing - not because of a mouse.
The appointment tomorrow will give us some news
we're praying that it won't have us singing the blues.

What will he say, what will we find out?
This doctor is known to have lots of doubt.
They talk about statistics but we trust in God.
He can do anything with simply a nod.

The purpose of everything is to glorify Him
even if the results are disappointing and grim.
We try so hard to figure things out
but He has the plan - of this there's no doubt.

We can worry and stress about what we may hear
but God simply tells us - be still and draw near.
We trust in God's plan, whatever it may be
but we're praying to hear "she is now cancer free!"

I'll admit it - I'm scared - of what we may hear
He'll give us the details and confirm our worst fears.
There is no point in stressing about what tomorrow may bring
because all of that worrying won't change a thing.

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Romans 12:12
