When Priorities Change In An Instant

I’ve always known that I love my wife more than anyone else in the world – even my sons, who I love deeply.  I’ve always known that I need my wife more than anything else in the world.

I didn’t realize just how important she is to me until she had a severe medical crisis and her very life was in critical condition.   Thirty-one years and 2 days after our wedding day, she suffered a catastrophic blood loss in a hospital in Bucerias, Mexico.

I’ve heard of “foxhole” prayers.  I’ve had a cursory prayer life myself.  I’ve neglected the spiritual side of my life for many years.   But I know and I believe.  I cried out to a God that I know.  Just like the father in Mark 9:23-25 I cried out “I believe; help my unbelief.” I prayed the 23rd Psalm over and over.  I wept.

And God answered.   Despite my unbelief.
