My mom will be in surgery in a few moments to have a thyroid-ectomy.  After months of being so sick, the doctors are going to remove the culprit.  She sent a text to say she loves us all just before she was wheeled into surgery–complete with her signature gesture–the symbol for “I love you” in sign language.  

As I prayed for her peace, steady hands for the doctors, and peace for my dad, I realized I wasn’t anxious, fretting, or worried in any way.  I knew God had this situation securely in the palm of His hand. 

All of a sudden, I started to hear a song from many years ago when I was a new believer that framed it all so well.

He is able, more than able, to handle anything that comes my way

He is able, more than able, to accomplish what concerns me today

And so He is. And that is where I am resting today.
