Still in Pain, But Dealing With It

Psalm 16:8-9
"I keep my eyes always on the LORD. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure.""

We used this verse about a month ago, but it's still appropriate for today. Of course, we could say that about any verse in the Bible. Isn't it amazing how pertinent God's Word is for us on a daily basis?

Tammy is still in a lot of pain with her mouth sores. The doctor says they'll probably last for another four or five days and then go away quickly. Everything else is going well, and he's not worried that this is a long-term problem. For that we're very thankful.

Tammy continues to "rest secure" because she is focused on the Lord. We're amazed how anyone goes through this battle without faith in the Lord.

Speaking of people whose faith is in God, we would ask that you pray for our friend, Shelley. She is the daughter of our friends, Chuck and Carol. She is also the wife of Dave and the mom of Devin and Sean. She has been battling breast cancer for a while, and is still in a battle, as another tumor has showed up. Her faith is strong, as is that of her entire family. We ask that as you're praying for Tammy tonight, that you mention this precious family to God as well.

Remember our analogy of prayer. When you pray for someone, you're picking them up and carrying them to the Throne of God. You're saying, "God, You love this person more than I can. This person has needs, and only You can take care of them. Please meet their needs and comfort them." It's an honor and a privilege to pray for others.

Have a blessed day!
