We wanted to share part of a devotion from the book Jesus Calling.
This is from Monday’s devotion:
"Your gravest danger is worrying about tomorrow. If you try to carry tomorrow's burdens today, you will stagger under the load and eventually fall flat. You must discipline yourself to live within the boundaries of today. It is in the present moment that I walk close to you, helping you carry your burdens."
We needed to hear those words.
A dear friend spoke this truth to us Sunday at church.
Another precious friend shared it on her daughter’s blog. Her daughter recently relapsed with Ewing’s sarcoma. She had surgery and began her treatment on Monday. You can pray for her and follow her journey at http://www.journeywithsarah.wordpress.com/
Throughout Elena's treatment, this family has brought great joy, comfort, and encouragement to our family. We cannot believe that our daughters are going through this again!
After reading the above entry from Jesus Calling, this is what Heather shared on their blog: “We are looking ahead as far as asking God to direct us in making plans for Sarah's treatment, but past that, we are trying to keep our eyes on today. This is hard to do, and God has to help us with this....but it is the only way to keep from being overwhelmed.”
She speaks the truth and we feel the same way, just insert Elena's name above.
Thank you Heather and to everyone else who speaks the truth to us.
Thank you for taking the time to send us a verse, a card, a text, an email, or a blog post that encourages us. They always come at the right time.
Please pray for our upcoming appointment with Elena's doctor on Monday.
Pray for continued guidance as we are faced with making decisions in the days ahead.
Pray for Elena to continue to feel well and enjoy each day.
Pray for Liv to not feel lost or get lost in the midst of it all.
"Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." Matthew 6:34
