Being Humbled

When you go through an emergency medical procedure it is humbling.

Things you could do for yourself-and that you would take for granted-are no longer things you can do for yourself. You need others' help, if you don't outright need them to do it for you.

Yes, as I recover there are more things I can do for myself again, but the lesson is learned, I hope.

None of us can do it all for themselves, and yet we try.

Nowhere is this more serious than salvation. We can not save ourselves, we can not even contribute really--Salvation is of the Lord.

So in my recovery I am learning once again to depend on the Lord. I often have had no choice but to depend on Him.
