This is a great testimony. Had a friend who had this same surgery. She trusted God and is fine today.

Good job.

What a testimony. What are we anyway but living epistles. How can you have a testimony without first having the test? Glad you passed! Very good job in the telling and I am sure it will bless someone.
Wow! this was amazing and brought tears to my eyes at the end. Congratulations on a well written testimony. chris x

Well written story, successfully gives the feel that we are there with you in the ordeal. Also brought back memories of my stapedectomy.
This is wonderful. A well deserved EC placing. I've had a number of surgeries. It is a frightening thing, no matter how minor the surgery, when they "put you out." Thank you for taking me on your faith journey!

Praise God that all turned out well. You made such a great point by saying that Jesus, knowing what he knew about the future, still prayed for God to take the cup from him. He truly does understand how we feel, and He loves us so much that He sent the Comforter to us in our times of need. Thank you for the reminder, and Congratulations!

RuthAnn, this entry put a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes. It's so deserving of an Editor's Choice! You have quite a testimony, friend, and I love this story!

Congratulations on your EC. This is a wonderful testimony to trusting God and overcoming fear.

I found this line very thought-provoking --

"She assures me that everything will be fine, and I believe her, and I believe Him, and it is."

Why is it we can quickly trust people at times, but are slower to trust God?

Great writing.
