Peace of God in a Crazy Day

Yesterday was a whirlwind of activity with doctor stuff. The day started off with an MRI my rheumatologist wanted me to have with check in time for it at 7am. To put that in perspective, I usually wake up at 7:30 🙂 MRI machines are loud even with the earplugs in, but it was no big deal.

Then I stopped at the school where my morning class is to do a few things. Mondays I do not teach. It is the day that we have a speaker come to share with the moms through a translator. I was there for a few hours.

Then the big one my appointment with a cardio electro physiologist about an ablation. It looks to be a simple procedure. I will have the ablation next Monday with a check in time of 5am.

After a refreshing nap, it was time for conversation practice with a Brazilian friend.. She lived in my city for one year several years ago. She is back in Brazil, so we meet in Zoom. Yesterday I met her boyfriend while we were talking. We do entrecambio-exchange- speaking in English and also some Portugues.

The day capped off with teaching my online class for the college.

What was the common theme that wove all of that together? Jesus.

Philippians 4:7 says:

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Throughout the day there was a calm in my spirit because of Jesus. Starting a day with an MRI could be an unsettling experience, but the peace of God was with me. Seeing a cardio doctor could be unsettling, but the peace of God was with me. The peace of God was with me because of Jesus.

Thank you for reading. God Bless.

  1. I’m so glad the peace of God transcends every experience and situation we have, when we choose. What would we do without it? I understand your situation and will praying for your procedure and all you do for others too, brother! God bless you and keep you!

      1. You’re so welcome, brother! I’ve been so far gone from WP. It’s like another world. I moved last week, between ice storms, and have appts coming this week. I pray to get my office set up soon and begin writing regularly again. Please keep taking care and we can be prayer warriors! 🙏🏻

  2. When Jesus goes with you, there is shalom–wholeness, with nothing broken is yours. My sister had an ablation last week and her heart issue was solved. In the name of Jesus, may all your heart issues be resolved with this procedure next Monday. May the peace that passes all understanding, guard your heart and mind through Christ Jesus.
