It was two weeks ago today that we were packed and ready to go to the beach for the 4th of July weekend and a double fireworks show in Ilwaco, WA. My wife had been preparing all week by
packing clothes and making sure there was nothing left to do before our very short vacation. Our plans were in place but our destination was uncertain as we waited to hear from the doctors office that afternoon. When we heard that we were going to the ER at Oregon Health and Science University we knew the plans we had were not our plans anymore. Our plans were out of the question and we knew there was nothing we could do to rearrange them. We went from celebrating the 4th of July...to leukemia. How do you say I'll figure out a different way?
When dreams turn into nightmares remember these words after watching this music video:
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you."
When you discover that God loves you, you discover that he is going to care for you as if you were a two year old child with cancer. He is not going to leave you alone to "figure it out." He does have a plan for your life and it's a good one. Read it again and take it to heart: "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you."
When you enter into the will of God, nothing can stand against you, not disease, not poverty, not loneliness, not rejection. Gods grace IS Amazing and He has more than enough to go around.
