perfect peace

perfect peace... this is a Bible verse I will be holding on to Monday as I head to surgery.

I'll be having a total hip replacement. As I child I had surgery for a dislocated hip. A year or so later, I had a second surgery to remove three pins used to secure the hip. Though I have limited motion in that hip, those surgeries took me through many years of relative normal function.
My normal that is. Putting shoes on, bending down and other activities might not be the way others do it. The doctor told me I have compensated and will be astonished at what a real normal hip feels like. He will also correct my 3/4-inch leg length discrepancy. 

So now is the time to move forward with this. Honestly, I do feel a wee bit apprehensive about it all but I have heard only good things from many who have gone through this surgery.

So, my friends, wish me well and say a prayer if you are so inclined!

Love, hugs and prayers for you as you have surgery and rehab and therapy afterwards. May everything go smoothly and your healing be swift and complete.

Rest in the tender love, joy and peace of Jesus. You are in His care and there is none greater.

You have a powerful weapon {faith} as you head to surgery. He will give you comfort and healing. Wishing you a successful and speedy recovery.

Yes, I will pray for you - for steady hands for the surgeon, for a smooth operation and rapid healing. All of the things that the surgeon says are true, as I have watched a dear friend (with whom I walk and swim!) go through two replacements. The most recent was last September.

You have been on my heart and in my prayers since I first heard your news. I'm praying that you will have PERFECT peace and that the Lord will hod you close and carry you through each step of the surgery and your recovery.

I pray that the Lord might guide the surgeons hands, and that all would good well. I pray that the recovery is swift, complete, and quick. And I'd ask too Lord that you would fill her with your perfect peacce, and keep His loving arms around you through the whole process.

I understand your apprehension...I am having so much difficulty with my back and thinking of surgery brings up that feeling for me. :) I know you're going to sail through this! A dear friend of mine had surgery on both hips (not at the same time) and she absolutely amazed everyone!

I will pray for you and the medical team for their skills. Try to relax and enjoy your "down time"...read, watch movies, etc. May God and His angels surround you with peace and love!

May you have perfect peace on Monday, as your mind is stayed on Him.
I have found it is very calming to repeat scripture, in times like this.
Praying for your surgery and recovery.

You will have a peaceful Monday, and you will be home before you know it! Do you know what time surgery is scheduled?

This is one I particularly like - and repeat several times daily: "The Lord is my Portion; therefore I shall wait for Him."
God be with you tomorrow and throughout your recovery period - and always!
The Peace of the Lord be with you..............

Cheryl said...

Lorraine, I pray that your surgery goes well, and that your recovery is both restful and restorative! You are in His hands!

Lea said...

Oh, I will sure be praying for you and just know that you are going to be amazed at good you feel afterwards. My husband had total hip replacement 10 years ago and he never had as much pain afterwards as he did before. He's never regretted it. Blessings to you for HIS peace and comfort to surround you in the days ahead. Hugs!
