Last week I was scheduled for another CT scan. They have ordered those every three or four months just to be sure that everything is OK. The results have always served as a source of encouragement. Actually, I am always a little tickled when the doctors tell me that the mass has shrunk, or that it has diminished, or that there is nothing there to be concerned about. They are trying to figure it out and I am praising Him. Go figure!
Last week was a little different.
Since I have been going to the VA for these past 25 months I have met a lot of people. Many of them are involved in my care and they have kept up with my progress.
So, when I arrive they almost always make a comment about how good I look or how well I am doing. This time I noticed that everyone who spoke to me about my health seemed to add this little tag line, “so far”.
The receptionist, “Doing really good, so far”
The lab tech, “So far so good”.
The doctor, “Well, I don’t see any reason to be concerned, so far”.
So Far? Does that mean they expect something to happen? Does that mean they are not operating in the same kind of faith that you and I are?
It made me think:
So far, God has never stopped acting in mercy
So far, God has not withdrawn His healing hand.
So far, God has never left us or forsaken us.
So far, He has always kept His Word.
So far, He has continued to be the Comforter.
So far, His promises are still Yes and Amen.
So far, my trust has been in Him.
And, I am good with that!
