God Is Faithful!
As the nights lengthen and the cold starts to settle in (we have had our first frost now), my thoughts turn toward the coming winter. Over this past weekend, I have fought an old battle with fear which raises it's ugly head from time to time.

This is a difficult time of year for me. Two people near and dear to my heart, my dad and my grandmother, passed away in October. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in December 2007, awaited biopsy results once again in December 2008 (they were negative for cancer) and had a ruptured brain aneurysm and stroke in December 2009. The fall and early winter have been a difficult time over the past few years.

A friend of mine, wrote me this morning and in part they said:
As strong as the apprehension gets at times when dates come up or physical symptoms reappear; God brought us through the fire for a reason and I cant believe it would be to get burned up.
Those words reminded me that while these times have been difficult, God has always been faithful! He has always been with me in the fire... and He is not going to stop doing so now.

Wherever we go, even if it is in the middle of the fire, God is with us every step of the way...whether we see Him or not. May this song bless you this day as it has blessed me.



Blessing!

I was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer in December 2007, a few months after I joined CB and went through treatment. Two years later, without any warning, a cerebral aneurysm ruptured when I was asleep. It is only by the grace of God that I not only survived but that I am able to type these words today. Though we may face trouble, we do not have to be victims of our circumstances, we can be victors over them through Jesus Christ. (Romans 8:35-39)

it seems to me that through those horrible experiences of life, whether we are burned up or purified is entirely up to us. As you have reminded me on many occasions "fear is not of God, it is of the enemy":wink:

Praise God for his victory that is free for us in all areas of our lives.
