Stinking To High Heaven
My lung collapsed before I had the time to brush my teeth, shower, or get dressed.
I hadn’t even finished my morning smoke and coffee.
I had to call 911 now…and I did and they came and received my smelly, disheveled self unto the hospital.
I am a man of no small vanity and I was consigned to stinking up a room at Rogue Valley Medical Center for a week without proper hygiene or grooming .
I wasn’t ready and I was paying for it.
God was prepared, however.
He had Trey’s mom at the ready and she got me through the first few hours with that nurses degree He helped her achieve and three decades of of our hard fought friendship.
Another nurse saw me texting and asked what I was doing…”live blogging my demise”, I answered.
“Not if I can help it”, she replied.
From that point, till I came home.. He had every detail of every moment covered, had scheduled every prayer and divine encounter necessary , and He never left my side…either by his Spirit or the presence of His people.
He did not care for me according to my good works and piety but according to the price I had been bought with.
It wasn’t about me, it was about Him and because of Him, I was covered.
I am now facing huge challenges on every side.
I’m not ready.
That’s good news, friends…and it’s not just my news.
