More Lessons from Sam

Over the past 24 hours we've wrung our hands, helplessly watching our precious Sam struggle with the after-effects of surgery:
  • Pain
  • Possible infection
  • Confusion
  • Fear.
His doctors and family hover, taking all the necessary precautions to assure his well-being both physically and emotionally. But he still suffers.

And that's today's lesson! The take-home for me and you is this:

When God deems it necessary to perform surgery on our hearts, He provides all the covering we need physically, emotionally, and spiritually. He does what He does for our good . . . but there will still be pain involved. Pain is part of the healing process. But take heart--He will never allow us to be tested beyond what we can endure without giving us a means of escape.
