Let not your heart be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.
My daughter brought my grandchildren to visit while my sister was here for a doctor’s appointment.
Though my sister faces seemingly insurmountable obstacles in regard to her health
seeing Verne and Abigail brings her so much joy.
I have struggled knowing that there is a very real possibility that my sister will not live to
see grandchildren of her own. It made me incredibly sad, almost to the point where I felt guilty.
I just couldn’t wrap my heart around it.
And then I remembered that I didn’t have to.
God has her and he has me as well.
I cannot say that my heart is not still troubled. But the waters are not so turbulent.
I can use my faith to calm the waters of my heart.
I am walking with a deeper understanding of faith and of what it truly means to trust in God.
We do not know what will happen with my sister in the coming months. We are almost sure there will
be a third round of Chemo but we won’t know where else the cancer has spread for another few
weeks. The worst case is very bad and the best case is not that great.
But we have a resting period for the next few weeks in which to shore up our defenses.
To find our way to hearts that are not troubled.
To trust in God.
And to pray.
