Chemo Tomorrow

Tomorrow is another day of chemo for my dad. He will have 3 more 48 hours chemos and then we will have another scan to see if this chemo is working. Please pray that it is. Pray also that he will have strength and the chemo will destroy the bad cells and leave the good ones alone. My family and I can't say thank you enough for your prayers. We feel them and there are times when your prayers are the thing that keeps us going. Please countinue.
Just wanted to put a verse at the beginning of this blog because it has been a real comfort to me during this season and journey in my life. I hope and pray that you will know you can walk through this journey called life without fear because God is with you. What a great comfort to know that He promises to never leave us or forsake us. Also, don't know if you know this but 365 times in the Bible it says do not fear. If you think about that and then how many days are in the year that is one time for each day. Everyday that you take your head off your pillow God is telling you not to fear today because He is with you.
We can either choose to see the fire in our life as burning us or refining us. I choose to let it refine me and let it help me to become the person God has made be to be. Even when the fears start to come I choose to remember that my God is with me and I don't have to fear. Although, the word fear is a small 4 letter word it is one that can keep us from living our lives. I will not let it keep me from living my life or stealing my joy. I will run to God with everything in me so He can calm any fears that I may have. Will you do the same? God doesn't want us to carry them but instead to come to Him and remember that His burden is light and His yoke is easy.
Going to the Calmer of the storms,
