I’m a little anxious as I write this today. My 15 year old son, Andrew, is having surgery tomorrow to repair a broken bone in his foot. It’s not a huge surgery and he’s expected to make a full recovery, but he’s my “baby” and I’m concerned for him. Would you remember us in your prayers?
The bone he is having fixed is notorious for not healing well without help. The doctor told us that because there is a limited blood flow to the portion of the bone he broke, there only about a 50% chance it will heal without surgical intervention. So, the doctor is going to place a screw inside the bone which will force the fracture closed and allow the bone to knit itself back together.
Life doesn’t always work the way it’s supposed to, does it? Hurts sometimes, often times, run too deeply to be healed without help. Are you in that place today where your heart or spirit is broken beyond what you can handle? If so, I’m praying that you will allow our Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father and our Prince of Peace to penetrate into the depth of your pain and heal the places that are broken.
