Fear Not

FTI Fear not quote pic

Fear not. Fear not. Fear not. This is what the Lord keeps saying to me. However, to say yesterday was a distressing day is an understatement. There were multiple conversations with doctors, by phone and in person, with me asking as many questions as I could to help me decide whether to pull the plug or not on my next recommended surgery…which happens to be today.

Did I let fear overwhelm me? Yes. In a major way.

But, as God does, He spoke again. I came home and just wanted to collapse from the weight of it all. But before I settled into the couch, I picked up the open Bible on the table nearby and settled into His word.

I had it opened to the Psalms but there is a devotional text in this particular Bible that had a quote from Isaiah which seems to be finding it’s way to me through various sources. My eyes landed on this:

“For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.” Isaiah 41:13

So, I’m holding onto His hand today and trusting He will help me. If you are going through a trial, this is for you too. God always keeps His promises.

Here’s one of those ways God sent this message to me. This video teaching from Andy Stanley is worth a watch.

  1. We are still praying for you everyday, I know God has his hand on you, we love you. For me to say I know I know what you are going through would not be true, I can say God has got this & his hand is on you all of the way.

    I have a dear friend here in my church who has just gone through & is now CANCER FREE, so I know God is the Healer. I would love to give her your email address if it would be ok with you, she is a good christian.

    • Thank you Alice! Feel free to have her email me. All encouragement is certainly welcome.

  2. You are such a blessing to me. Thank you so much for writing this. My thoughts and prayers of strength from our Healer Saviour Jesus Christ are continuous.
