Giver of Life
Lord, my eternal relationship with You began from the moment I first believed. I don’t need to work for it, and I don’t need to hope it will come to pass someday. My life in You is a done deal. It is not based on my feelings, my struggles, or even this cancer. I have life only because I have You! In You, I live and move and have my very existence. Thank You for Your assurance that I am Your child and You will never leave or forsake me. Help me to comprehend what this new life in You actually means, through good times and bad, in health and in sickness. Thank You, Lord, the Giver of Life!
Hope comes when you trust in God and tell Him all your problems, knowing He is your protector. It’s OK to tell Him you are angry, scared, or that you feel numb. In those moments when you feel numb, when you feel like you’ve lost His love, go to God and tell Him that. Hebrews 10:23 teaches us, “We can trust God to do what He promised” and He promises to pour His love into our hearts. Trust in His love and His healing power in all circumstances.
