Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The LORD is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.
Tomorrow is my biopsy and "other tests". We are stepping in to a bunch of unknowns but that is not what I want to focus on right now. No matter what these tests find, there are some things that remain the same.
The Lord answered Job out of the storm...Brace yourself like a man;
I will question you,
and you shall answer me.
"Where were you when I laid the earth's foundation?
Tell me, if you understand.
Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know!
Who stretched a measuring line across it?
or who laid its cornerstone-
while the morning stars sang together
and all the angels shouted for joy?
We are in the midst of a crazy storm...almost every area of our lives have been affected along with my health and then today our car was possibly totalled in a bizarre accident. Most importantly, Doug and the kids are fine.
I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.
My prayer requests tomorrow are that I will keep my eyes on the Lord. I have to walk through the doors of a cancer center, but I know that does not define me. I have to sit and wait a lot, and still have to leave without answers...but I know One who already has them and He loves me more than anything.
In all of this, Doug and I have talked about how we feel like we are in a fortress. The storms are raging all around and Satan is throwing his arrows like crazy, but we know who has already won. Tonight we werew talking about the fact that we had pictured the walls of this fortress as stone but realized that we are actually protected by God's very hands and nothing can take us from them.
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
We are so very thankful for all of your prayers, emails, calls and comments...we definitely do not walk this alone. How in the world can I ever say thank you enough?
