When you say "anything"
"Lord, I'll do as you say, go where you send me"
as long as it fits our schedule
as long as we can understand His request
And there are times we pray dangerous
when we declare
"Lord, let Your will, not mine be done
glorify Yourself in my life
whatever it is you want from me
I'll do anything"
and in that moment of surrender
we think we can imagine what anything might mean
anything means anything
For now, the anything He has chosen
is for me to walk through a medical condition
I would not have expected
that creates the need for skull base and neuro surgery
this will entail much travel between home
and Saskatoon where my medical/surgical team will be based
Perhaps as a dear friend prayed for me on Sunday
this is more than a medical journey
but a mission as well
I will certainly be meeting many new people along the way
in the days, weeks and months to come
if He asks it of me
you may find me writing
about my journey through the trials of an acoustic neuroma
about consults, surgery and the recovery process
I ask for your patience
and for your prayers
that He indeed will be glorified
in the way I walk this out.
