It seems like most people I’ve talked to have had an MRI at one point in their lives, but mine on Monday was a first for me. I wasn’t really nervous beforehand. Hadn’t really given the test itself much thought…I was just ready to get on with the next step in getting my spine back to normal. Would love it if the knives in my shoulder would kindly make their way back to the shelf or drawer they came from. I’ve promised to put them to good use in tackling a beef stew recipe or something.
Anyway. As the radiologist began to instruct me and explain the process, I’ll admit my heart started to race a bit. I don’t like closed spaces…I find it hard to breathe. But I’m supposed to lie still. Oh yea, and the noise of the machine will be quite loud. She mentioned again that the test is most accurate when one lies very still.
Then I received an unexpected blessing. Thank you to whomever was praying for me, I know there were many. The kind lady put earphones on my ear. Not only was she going to let me listen to music during my loud procedure, but because of “Pandora,” I could also pick my genre.
“Praise & worship,” I said, the first genuine smile of the morning beaming from my face.
So she rolled me in, started the machine, and she wasn’t kidding. It was loud.
“Now remember to lie very still, okay?”
I wondered when the music would start. How in the world can I stay still when I already feel like my breathing is raising me off my back? Then as instantly the Lord Jesus Christ calmed the waves of the sea, He used His Truth through music to calm my heart.
Water You turned into wine…Open the eyes of the blind
There’s no one like You, None like You
Into the darkness You shine…Out of the ashes we rise
There’s no one like You, None like You…
Our God is greater, our God is stronger
God You are higher than any other
Our God is Healer, awesome and power
Our God, Our God…
As if I had any doubt that He is greater, stronger, higher, Healer, awesome & Power…I didn’t, but that’s just like our God to put it right in my ear, above the noise.
I’m finding myself at a loss for words…And the funny thing is it’s okay
The last thing I need is to be heard…But to hear what You would say
Word of God speak, Would You pour down like rain…Washing my eyes to see, Your majesty
To be still and know, That You’re in this place…Please let me stay and rest, In Your holiness
Word of God speak…
I’m finding myself in the midst of You…Beyond the music, beyond the noise
All that I need is to be with You…And in the quiet hear Your voice
You know, after all these years of the Lord showing Himself powerfully, being the glorious One that He always is, whether quiet or speaking, He still amazes me. And blesses me.
I’m finding myself at a loss for words
And the funny thing is it’s okay…
