Matt Chandler is one man who is, by God's grace, doing a marvelous job of embodying the three truths Justin Buzzard commended for our constant reflection.
On Thanksgiving morning Chandler suffered a seizure, collapsed and was rushed to the hospital. Today he is having a five-hour brain surgery to remove a large portion of his right frontal lobe. Chandler writes:
The last seven days have been some of the most interesting of my life. I have felt anxiety, fear, sadness and a deep and unmovable joy simultaneously and in deeper ways than I have felt before. I am grateful for this heightened sense of things. Today at 10:45 a.m. CST I will have a good portion of my right frontal lobe removed. I head into that surgery with a heart that is filled with gratitude and hope.
He goes on to mention ten things he's grateful for. I praise God for Matt's courage and steadfastness during this time. What an example of resting in God's sovereign, wise, goodness.
Remember to keep the Chandler family in prayer.
