God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble ~ Psalm 46:1
Sometimes people just need a reminder that they are not alone. For my friends who are battling breast cancer, or any illness for that matter, I want to remind you that even in your darkest hours, your heavenly Father is walking through this valley with you. And when you stumble beneath the burden, He will scoop you up in His loving arms and carry you.
He will also place caring people in your lives to help you through. I love the pink and blue breast cancer awareness pins. Why? They are such a nice reminder that for every woman who is facing this giant, there are other men and women who lovingly support them and refuse to let them go it alone.
Perhaps you, dear reader, are facing a devastating battle other than cancer. You are not alone in that either, even if is sometimes feels as though you are. I’ve been there on more than one occasion. But they don’t have a lapel pin for that, so I wear my I.D. bracelet instead. You see, my bracelet doesn’t have my name on it –it has my very favorite scripture. I wanted to share this Scripture today because someone needs to hear it:
So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
~Isaiah 41:10 (NIV)
