God's Promise-


Thursday, June 05, 2008


I keep saying this over & over in my head, so I'll share it with you all.

"God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow or sun without rain.
But God did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears & a light for the way.
And for all who believe in His kingdom above, He answers their faith with everlasting love..." unknown author

I've been counting on this promise for most of my Life. And especially since the last 2 yrs.
With all my recent surgeries & tests I have to believe & have faith. Yesterday, my Endocrinologist talked with me regarding my Abnormal Mammogram & my thyroid surgery issues. He believes I should go ahead with my Breast Biopsy. Lower my Synthroid, again. Continue to push through exercise, at least 30 min. Focusing on Strength Training. Get another Blood Glucose Test done...it just NEVER seems to stop! Oh, & get more sleep. *sigh*
I'll keep all of you informed as to what & when my next steps are. I hope that this prayer touches someone else in need too. Ttyl!

    Oh sweetie. You have my love and sympathy. I too know what it's like to be slammed all at once. I never have just one thing happen to me. I love your positive quote and while I do feel the pain through your words, the exhaustion, I also feel your deep abiding faith in our Lord who is in control. We can never ever understand some things, but we can be assured that they will pass away. What I've come to understand....

By His stripes we are healed...maybe not now in this world, but in the next! We are already fully healed and perfect in our futures given us by Jesus when He bought our contract with His blood...as He had to endure the afflictions of living in the world, so too, must we, but we can live in Joy, knowing that our suffering will end and while we yet endure them through His perfect love and power in our life through the Holy Spirit, we continue to grow stronger in spirit and faith, even as our fleshly shells fail us.

I know that He has placed His angels around you and that you are deeply loved and embraced in His high esteem and that whatever you or I face in our lives, He is always with us. In moments of human frailty we all need the loving support of our friends. Please know I am not only your sister in Christ, but your loving friend, and I am here if you ever need me. For anything. Anytime. And you are always in my prayers. Jesus is your mighty fortress of refuge, His armor protects you from the enemy's fiery darts...Let the joy of our Lord sustain you through your physical trials, even as your warrior spirit grows in strength.

Much love and God bless you forever!

    Lions, and Tigers, and Bears, Oh My!!
Sounds like everything has slammed into you at once! It is such a pain to sit in the doctor's office, look at having surgery, have your meds messed with, AND get a laundry list of changes from the doctor. I've had 12 surgeries in my life & don't envy you.
I love your quote. Another one that comes to mind for me is: "It came to pass". Not to move in, not to climb on my back as a permanent monkey - it came to PASS. I hope this passes from you quickly. You're in my prayers, Angie emoticon
