Moment By Moment

Dying with Jesus, by death reckoned mine;
Living with Jesus, a new life divine;
Looking to Jesus till glory doth shine,
Moment by moment, O Lord, I am Thine.

Moment by moment I’m kept in His love;
Moment by moment I’ve life from above;
Looking to Jesus till glory doth shine;
Moment by moment, O Lord, I am Thine.

Never a trial that He is not there,
Never a burden that He doth not bear,
Never a sorrow that He doth not share,
Moment by moment, I’m under His care.

Never a heartache, and never a groan,
Never a teardrop, and never a moan;
Never a danger but there on the throne,
Moment by moment He thinks of His own.

Never a weakness that He doth not feel,
Never a sickness that He cannot heal;
Moment by moment, in woe or in weal,
Jesus my Savior abides with me still.

I love verse 2.  Never a trial, a burden, a sorrow do we have in this life without being in His care through it all!  Even when we think or feel like He isn't there watching over us, He is.  I know He is!  He showed it today while I was making doctor appointments.  I needed them to be ASAP!  He made it so I was able to get those appointments tomorrow!  Thank You, Lord!

I'm bad about putting off my own health care problems because I do not have insurance.  Samaritan ministries is not insurance and it doesn't cover dental work or well checkups that are $300 or less in cost.  So it usually comes down to my making appointments when I am in pain.  I have a tooth that about 1/4 of it broke off when I was eating popcorn several months ago.  It is starting to bother me, so I made the call.  Also, I have another tooth that half of it is broken off at the gum.  That one is not bothering me.....yet, but I will probably not have it taken out tomorrow.  I am thinking about going ahead and getting bottom dentures since I only have my front teeth anyway and my teeth are falling apart.  I know that will involve a lot of money.  When I make that decision, we will probably have to do it on a payment plan.  So, anyway, that process begins tomorrow, I guess.

And, since I have been so nauseous every morning lately, I was able to get an appointment to see my gastroenterologist tomorrow.  It was time for a 6 month follow-up anyway.  I want to talk to her about maybe changing my acid reflux medicine to one that also takes care of nausea.  Maybe I can kill 2 birds with one stone!  I also read on that stress can trigger IBS problems, so I want to talk to her about the antidepressant medicine the family doctor prescribed.  And I also want to talk to her about the discomfort I've had around my sternum.  I want to make sure that is not heart related.  And I don't know where the hiatal hernia is, so it might be that and it might not.

AND, I was able to get my family doctor to call in a prescription for nausea medicine early this morning!  I woke up very nauseous at 2:45 a.m.  So, as soon as the pharmacy at Walmart opened, we were there and the medicine was ready!  It didn't take very long for it to kick in and begin to help, so I went back to bed when I got home til almost 4:00 (I hope I can sleep tonight)!  Thank You, Lord!

Now, I said all of that to explain why I love verse 2 to the song above.  Today, unexpectedly, we received a love gift from one of our sister churches (that means they believe the way we do) up in West Virginia!  It probably won't pay for everything for my health matters, but it will help tremendously!  Thank You, Lord!  Thank You!  Moment by moment You care for Your children!
