My People Are Amazing

Once again, I am blown away by the goodness of people.  Last night my brother in law, Mike, called to let us know that he set up a Medical Expense Fundraiser for anything not covered by insurance (ex: gas for travel, hotel stay, food, etc) for my family.  The day before, my sister in law, Sarah, called to get family food preferences in order to organize a Care Calendar so that my husband and kids wouldn’t have to eat fast food every night when I’m in Arkansas.  You can find these on the “Donations” page on my blog, or by clicking here.  Today one of my best friends called to discuss designs so that she could get T-Shirts made for anyone who wanted to support me through this journey.

My people are AMAZING.  To see these people that I’ve loved my whole life step things up even more than they have before…no words can express my gratitude.  This alone will get me through my disease.  This will help make up for the time I’m away from my family.  To know that this is the scope of the net beneath my feet is so immensely humbling.

I would never wish an illness on anyone, but I hope everyone has a chance in their lives to feel this loved.  To know, without a shadow of doubt, that they will be picked up if they fall.  That they will be sheltered through the storm and that nothing can be too big or too much.

My People Are Amazing!

‘Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe’  Hebrews 12:28

    Strive to trust Me in more and more areas of your life. Anything that tends to make you anxious is a growth opportunity. Instead of running away from these challenges, embrace them, eager to gain all the blessings I have hidden in the difficulties. If you believe that I am sovereign over every aspect of your life, it is possible to trust Me in all situations. Don’t waste energy regretting the way things are or thinking about what might have been Start at the present moment–accepting things exactly as they are–and search for My way in the midst of those circumstances.
    Trust is like a staff you can lean on, as your journey uphill with Me. If you are trusting in Me constantly, the staff will bear as much of your weight as needed.
    Lean on, trust and be confident in Me with all your heart and mind.
    Psalm 52:8; Proverbs 3:5-6
