Day 5: Uphill Battle
Even Anne Graham Lotz~
Bible teacher, Student of the Word, Speaker, Writer
Devoted to GOD~
is not exempt from getting cancer (2018)
That was my first thought
when I found out & I questioned~
Why would she get cancer when her life
is committed to serving GOD?
No one should have to go through
No matter how "good" or "bad" they are.
And then I read
Anne's response is about her current battle~
Cancer can be a blessing in disguise.
Cancer can be the preliminary to bearing much eternal fruit.
Cancer can be a display case for GOD's glory"*
What if I & What if you
looked up to the blessings that are hiding in the midst of
the "bad" that enters into our life,
that is beyond our control?
Is that what it means to
"Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer" (Romans 12:12)
"we know that in all things GOD works for the good of those who love HIM,
who have been called according to HIS purpose" (Romans 8:28).
Thank you Anne
for pointing me back to the cross.
Is there a "bad" in your life that is beyond your control?
What can your ________ do?
So when you feel like your _________
is an upward battle,
acknowledge that it it actually is
if it points you to GOD
then the battle is HIS
GOD USES ALL THINGS FOR GOOD
FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HIM.
So let's climb the hill together~
experience the life changing process
one step at a time~
"make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love" (2 Peter 1:5-8).
For GOD never lets us down
as HE is only one who takes us from
down to up
therefore HE is who
"I WILL FOLLOW"
