Ok. I am Digging. My. Heels. In.
Don’t want to travel any farther. (Uh oh, here comes my stubborn streak.)
Just hate the thought of toxic drugs dripping into my veins. (But, yes, I also hate the thought of cancer cells lurking and growing.) But reading through the long list of side effects and possible allergic reactions is about to send me running down the hallway. Screaming. With my arms in the air. I am trying hard to get a grip on the ONE GOOD side effect…the killing of the cancer… and focus on that.
I opened up a devotional book today by Sarah Young…(it was given to me as a gift…what a great book! ) And I just want to share what I was encouraged by. Hope it does the same for you!
Let me prepare you for the day that stretches out before you. I know exactly what this day will contain, whereas you have only vague ideas about it. You would like to see a map, showing all the twists and turns of your journey. You’d feel more prepared if you could somehow visualize what is on the road ahead. However, there is a better way to be prepared for whatever you will encounter today: Spend quality time with Me.
I will not show you what is on the road ahead, but I will thoroughly equip you for the journey. My living Presence is your Companion each step of the way. Stay in continual communication with Me, whispering My Name whenever you need to redirect your thoughts. Thus, you can walk through this day with your focus on Me. My abiding Presence is the best road map available.
Guess what book I am packing in my bag for tomorrow.
