Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers, but to be fearless in facing them. Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain, but for the heart to conquer it. Tagore

Facing a battle in your life today that is causing you to be afraid? Let me share with you how my faith has grown in this area, and I now know there is absolutely NOTHING our God cannot help us overcome. In the five times my wife, Janice has been told she has cancer, never once have I seen fear in her eyes. Never once, as she was getting ready to go into surgery, have I sensed that she was even a little bit scared. She has this amazing thing called faith, where she just places her life in Godís hands, and just leaves it there. Anytime a negative thought will creep in, she will get out her journal, and just start quoting Bible verses about faith and healing. These last 1,237 days my faith has grown tremendously, just by watching how much she trusts in our God. With every fiber of her being, she KNOWS our God is going to heal her, and until that day comes, she is just going keep living this amazing life God has allowed us to experience together. If I ever had to wonder how much God loves me, all I have to do is look at this amazing Proverbs 31 woman of God He has blessed me with. To say she has inspired me, and showed me what TRUE faith is, would be an understatement. I used to look at her, and think she was so timid and weak. I would fuss at her at times for letting people walk over her, as so many would try to take advantage of her kind-hearted nature. I would say things like, take up for yourself, and donít let them treat you like that. She would simply avoid conflict at all cost. But then one day this giant called cancer picked a fight with her, and instead of that timid woman I once knew, this warrior emerged, and the power of God sprang forth. The person I see today is one I admire greatly, and feel so extremely blessed to have a sideline seat, where I am watching the power of God manifest itself in and through her life.
You see, my wife has simply tapped into the truth that, no matter what battle we are fighting, and no matter what lie the Devil is telling us about our circumstance, "...despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us." (Romans 8:37) For God hath not given us the spirit of fear (2 Tim 1:7). So we can stand firm in our faith and face that giant in our life today, and watch him fall. Drugs, alcohol, depression, loneliness, and the list goes on; I know I have battled them ALL; and I am here as living proof that they DO NOT have to control and ultimately destroy our lives. You see, we serve a mighty God, who is omnipotent (all-powerful), and there is absolutely NOTHING He can't bring us through; and when we are a child of God, we NEVER have to face our battles alone. So stand up mighty warrior, and listen to the VOICE of TRUTH; He says, "You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will give you,..Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them, and the LORD will be with you." 2 Chronicles 20:17
From my heart to yours!
