He will have no fear of bad news;
His heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD.
His heart is secure, he will have no fear;
In the end he will look in triumph on his foes.
I haven't shared with everyone about my daughter Olivia and her back. Yes, it seems she has inherited some of my problems. But we're not completely sure why.
She started to complain about back pain in December. I had already scheduled an appointment with my spine doctor for both Olivia and Michael for them to be screened for scoliosis, since I have it and it has caused tremendous other problems with my back and my sister actually had corrective surgery on her spine when she was 15. Michael's spine is completely normal. Olivia's has a slight curve, but nothing to be concerned about. However...
My doctor ordered an MRI because of the pain she was experiencing and the results show that she has two herniated discs...which is strange considering she was not injured in an accident or doesn't play sports, unless you consider lying on the couch a sport!
Anyway he was quite concerned that she has these disc herniations so young and without any trauma involved, so we have an appointment on April 7th to meet with a rheumatologist. She's already completed a round of physical therapy and her pain is not as bad as it has been.
When I saw these verses on Angela's blog, it just spoke to me! I will have no fear of bad news! My heart is trusting in the Lord to work all things for His Glory. Right now we're not sure what our "foes" are. But we will one day look triumphantly at them and know without a doubt that our God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we ask of Him.
So if you could mark April 7th down on your calendars and remember my sweet Olivia in your prayers, that would be wonderful.
