Have thine own way, Lord!

Have thine own way, Lord! Have thine own way! 
Thou art the potter, I am the clay. 
Mold me and make me after thy will, 
while I am waiting, yielded and still. 

Have thine own way, Lord! Have thine own way! 
Search me and try me, Savior today! 
Wash me just now, Lord, wash me just now, 
as in thy presence humbly I bow. 

Have thine own way, Lord! Have thine own way! 
Wounded and weary, help me I pray! 
Power, all power, surely is thine! 
Touch me and heal me, Savior divine! 

Have thine own way, Lord! Have thine own way! 
Hold o'er my being absolute sway. 
Fill with thy Spirit till all shall see 
Christ only, always, living in me!

Relieved and Praising God!

Update - My first appointment with the surgeon is April 23.

Kathy and I walked out of the neurologist office this morning totally relieved.  You see, we prayed that we would have answers to why I was experiencing seizures and this morning we got an answer.  I have a 4 centimeter (about 1 1/2 inches) arachnoid cyst in my brain.

The next step will be to get a referral to see a brain surgeon.  I'm not at all worried or stressed out about this.  I'm not full of fear.  I have complete peace in the Lord.  I am so thankful God answered our prayer by revealing the cyst to the doctors because I didn't want to go month after month, test after test trying to figure out what was going on with me.  Praise the Lord!

To God Be The Glory as I go through this season in my life!

Love God, Trust God, Live for God

Dear friends of mine from Georgia sent me the book Off Script ~ What to do when God rewrites your life by Cary Schmidt.  I haven't read much of it yet but great book so far.  Tomorrow I go see the Neurologist to get my results from my blood work, MRI and EEG and this book has already been a blessing to me.

I can't put it better than he said it so here it is:
There are a million unanswered questions.  There are a thousand circumstances we cannot control.  The road ahead is foggy and unclear.  We could respond with panic, fear, anxiety, murmuring, and despair; nut what good would that do-really?  We could freak out.  We could mope.  We could miss all of the delight and blessings of taking this journey with out loving Father.
And so, with all the unknowns that lie ahead for you, I invite you to make this decision.  Commit to it.  Determine your course of action.
"God, I will love you, trust you, and live for you, no matter what, for the rest of my life!"
Say it out loud.  Mean it.  Engrave it into your heart and your thoughts, never to be reconsidered:
"God, I am Yours, You are mine - we make this journey together, and I choose Your script.  I surrender mine.  You are God.  I know You are good.  You will be with me.  Let's do this…"
