In the Bible there is a story about a guy, Jacob. In the story he ends up wrestling Jesus. Jesus being the man that he is, puts a whoopin on Jacob and for the rest of his days Jacob walked with a limp. His hip was busted.
That bible moment was just to serve as a segway to my hip and the fact that I am having surgery tomorrow to repair a torn labrum.
While my hip problems don’t necessiarly stem from an all night WWF cage match with the King of creation, they none the less have reminded me how amazing our creator God is. The mere fact that I have a mis-shapen hip bone with a proclivity towards pinching and tearing my labrum causes me to wonder at the greatness of our God.
Now, some will surely say, “how can you worship this God who makes men with mis-shapen hip bones?” To them, I say that I simply rest in the fact that God has shaped this bone in me for a very great purpose. Namely, to the end goal that his glory and renoun would be made known in the earth. How that will all work out… I’m not entirely sure. What I do know is that “from him, and through him, and to him are all things. To him be glory forever.” (Romans 11:36).
I do ask that you please keep me in your prayers tomorrow. My surgery will be some time in the morning. It is an arthoscopic surgery, but I will be put under for the operation. Please pray for Dr. Higgs, his staff, and the anesthesiologist.
