He knows my fears…

I am reading a book called “Finding the light in cancer’s shadow” by Lynn Eib. This morning I was feeling especially weak with all that my mind has in it right now. Then I read this:

You’ve always told your children:

That God can be trusted.
Now they can see if you really do trust Him.

That God is faithful.
Now they can see if you will be too.

That knowing Jesus makes all the difference.
Now they can see if it really does.

I read that over and over again. What do I believe? I mean I can come here and type a long diatribe for you, but at the end of the day What do I believe?

I believe that cancer sucks. I believe that the circumstances that my family finds themselves in right now are, to put it lightly, frightening. I believe that without Him, I wouldn’t be able to do this. I believe that without Him I wouldn’t be able to not let fear grip my soul. I wouldn’t be able to not worry about tomorrow.

But…

I believe that He keeps track of all my sorrows. He has collected all my tears in His bottle. He has recorded each one in His book. (Ps. 56:8) I believe that in Him I live, move and exist. (Acts 17: 28) I believe that it is only by His grace that I am saved. (Eph. 2:5) I believe that He is my hope. He is my help and my shield. In Him my my heart rejoices. (Ps. 33: 20) I believe that this tribulation will bring about perseverance, and perseverance brings about proven character, and proven character, hope. (Romans 5:3-5)

I believe that He knows my fears, and that He holds my heart through those fears. I believe that He knew long before I did that I would have cancer, and though the circumstances break my heart, He knew that I would walk this path for Him. I believe that He is already in my tomorrow, and the next day.

I believe that I am blessed to be alive.

In my life
Be lifted high
In my world
Be lifted high
In our Love
Be lifted high

I called, You answered
and you came to my rescue.
And I want to be where You are.
