So it seems one of the lessons God is going to teach this trip is to rely on Him for provision. He will provide strength, wisdom, endurance, power (literally), and whatever else is needed. He is the Jehovah Jireh--literally The Lord will provide.
God has shown His provision already in the unbelievable 4-day turnaround of a new transformer here at the hospital. The new transformer comes at great expense ($175,000) and the hospital had to dig deep into reserves. But, just today I have learned of a very large donation of almost one-third of the cost.
Another example of how God provides.
Personally, I will be relying on His provision of wisdom over the next few days. We have many cases that will be challenging in this setting including an 18-month old boy who needs major surgery (congenital diaphragmatic hernia for those interested). It will be a challenge for him to survive the surgery and recovery period. I use the word challenge in a human sense as nothing is a challenge for our God. Please pray for the surgical/anesthesia/nursing team on Thursday morning. Pray for this boy and his family. Pray for another miracle of God's provision.
