More than Four Years. . . .edited

That's right -- more than four years have passed since I began this blog.

In those four years, I have been blessed by many people - both getting to know them, and getting re-connected with them. Tonight, as the night hours become morning hours, I am thinking about my dear friend who has become as close as a sister. . . my friend, Beth.

About two hours ago - I started rereading some of her beautiful blog entries. Starting with the most recent, and working my way backwards. Somewhere around November of 2008, I decided to do some cross-reference checking to my blog. Not sure of when she started commenting on my blog, I kept digging.

My very first entry has her beautiful comments on it. . . and she became a frequent commenter on my blog (hitting nearly every entry) for the past four years.

Edited section follows. . . .

Last night, I wrote about how she is the battle of her life. She is battling cancer. Cancer may win -- or it may appear that cancer will win. However, JESUS is going to get the victory, no matter what happens!

I pulled my original blog entry, and am deleting the comments. There is still room for a miracle. I'm still going to pray for a miracle.

I will eventually put those thoughts back here on the blog. But for now, I'm holding onto my firm belief that MY God can do ANYTHING. He can destroy diagnoses. . . he can move mountains.

My God is mighty to save.

I'm going to close (or re-close) this entry with the verses that Beth has been claiming for the past couple of months. It's from Daniel 3. And, the more I read it, the more I find strength, conviction, and comfort in these words:

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego answered and said to the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king. But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up.”

God is good. That's a given.

He wants only good things for us. That's a corollary.

Bad things still happen sometimes. Is God bad? No. Is God less than all-powerful? No.

Is it possible that we live in a fallen world, and that we don't have God's vision for what is good for us? Yes, and Yes.

Prayers all around, to our Heavenly Father who knows what we need and when, who is all-knowing and all-powerful, and who cradles us like a newborn lamb in His arms. Prayers for healing (personal desire) and for God's name to be glorified (big picture).

Blessed be the name of the Lord.
