Stepping WAY out of my comfort zone

Well….. Here I go.  This is NOT in my comfort zone…. but I feel that God is calling me to share an important word.  It just had to be done in video instead of the written word.

There is so much anxiety in our nation right now.  Anxiety in personal lives, about the election and in our country as a whole.  It is tearing me up!  Please find encouragement in this.


 

Life can hurt….. Goliaths are big!

I sit in the hospitgod-vs-goliathal room, seeing my 19 year old son, Wesley, laying in a bed that has become way too familiar over the past 4 years.  I listen to the sounds of oxygen, IV pumps and now a bubbling chest tube along with the soothing sounds of the praise music he has playing from his blue tooth speaker.  Life can hurt.  My mama heart just aches for the pain he is enduring now…. and has during the many days since we first heard the dreaded word, leukemia.

While leukemia is no longer the Goliath we face, leukemia treatment has scarred his body.  The war wounds are real and a secondary battle has begun.

There is nothing I can humanly do as his mama to take any of this away…. I’m so glad that we know Jesus and that Wes has his own deep relationship with our Savior.  We have lived by the motto of GOD is BIGGER and have seen, felt and experienced the power of God in mighty ways.  There is nothing like being in the depths of our lack that allows us to see the provision of God’s hand.

What we SEE with human eyes is a BIG Goliath. We see PAIN from  surgery to repair the lung, we hear a bubbling chest tube and our hearts hurt hearing his frustration and non typical irritation. We know that biopsy results are out for second opinions and that the whole reason we did this biopsy in the first place must be addressed. This Goliath seems HUGE….. But on days like this we have to CHOOSE to… be DELIBERATE and constantly renew our minds to the THRUTH. The TRUTH is… No matter what Goliath we *or you* face in life…. GOD is BIGGER! HIS strength and power will ALWAYS conquer Goliath. In our HUMAN strength…. Goliath can over power…. But Goliath can never over power GOD!!!
So…. To the Goliath we face right now let you hear me loud and clear: “I come against you in the name of the Lord our God, and YOU are not going to win this battle!”
What Goliath are you facing today???  Our God is mighty and able to conquer any Goliath.  It takes intentional faith, keeping our eyes on Jesus and HIS power.  This life has a lot of hard…. but GOD is BIGGER!!! I would appreciate prayers for our son, Wesley, and I will pray for you.  Please leave a comment below and share how I can pray for you.
