Don't Get Me Wrong

Thought I would update those that are reading this - no date for surgery yet - trying to work out logistics of it all - long, complicated process. Just wanted to let you know that even though I have "the faith of a mustard seed"(so it seems) at times I am just plain overwhelmed and exhausted by all of this. But... then I am reminded that I am under God's wing of protection (Psalm 36:7"How priceless is your unfailing love! Both high and low among men find refuge in the shadow of your wings.") I also remember that "When I am afraid, I will trust in you." Ps.56:3 - Yes, I have fears - lots of them but "He hasn't given me the spirit of fear but of power, love, and a sound mind." - Thank the Lord for all the ones who encourged me to memorize scripture because His word is "alive and active". Just wanted to thank you guys again for the encouragement - especially reminding me of His word - Hebrews4:16 says, "Let us then approach the throne of grace WITH CONFIDENCE, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need." I am His daughter and I will be confident in Him. Thanks for constantly reminding me of this truth. Pray with me for the doctors, hospital and others that they may see and know the Living God that we serve - He is Mighty to deliver.

Dear Tracy,

Who wrote those words--"when I am afraid"? David was the man after God's own heart, and here he was. Afraid.

When you feel overwhelmed, exhausted and flat afraid, please remember that you are not failing God or anyone else who loves you.

David also says, "I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed." (Psalm 57:1b) Do you hear the hope! Until the disaster is passed--and it will!--there is shelter for the one who is bowed down in distress (57:6)

With love--SandyB
