Cycle 4: week 2, day 2

Today was a good day. Emotionally hard day, drained, but so many silver linings. That "You have cancer" shock and disbelief and panic relived..having to push it away to catch my breath. Hard emotions, harsh realities. God keeps lifting my spirits with good support, good love poured out on me and my family, good moments with our kids, hugs and love and listening to those children's hearts pouring out in prayer to their heavenly father. I am blessed. The tears of today were from an overflowing heart, overwhelmed and panic moments to be sure, but those balanced by this hugeness of love and reasons-to-love in my life. So grateful that God just keeps lifting me emotionally out of the hard and scary circumstances. I am blessed.

Jesus Calling today:

April 10

Trust Me in every detail of your life. Nothing is random in My kingdom. Everything that happens fits into a pattern for good, to those who love Me. Instead of trying to analyze the intricacies of the pattern, focus your energy on trusting Me and thanking Me at all times. Nothing is wasted when you walk close to Me. Even your mistakes and sins can be recycled into something good, through My transforming grace.

While you were still living in darkness, I began to shine the Light of My Presence into your sin-stained life. Finally, I lifted you up out of the mire into My marvelous Light. Having sacrificed My very Life for you, I can be trusted in every facet of your life.

“But blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him.”
—Jeremiah 17:7

We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose.
—Romans 8:28 amp

He drew me up out of a horrible pit [a pit of tumult and of destruction], out of the miry clay (froth and slime), and set my feet upon a rock, steadying my steps and establishing my goings.
—Psalm 40:2 amp

But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.
- 1Peter 2:9


  1. There are days when I have so few words, but God knows our hearts and hears our prayers. Amen!
    So thankful for the friends and family who continue to hold each of you (and the rest of our family) in prayer.
    We love each of you so much!

    ~ Those who hope in The Lord will renew their strength, they will soar on wings like eagles. Isaiah 40:31

  2. So grateful for God's promises....that we can cling to them and trust in them!
