THANKFULNESS IS … (PT.2)


I love every facet of this Bible verse!!

When we put on this truth, we are impenetrable, invincible, unconquerable! Any arrow or fiery dart the enemy throws cannot defeat us. No worry or concern can overpower us. God is greater than the thoughts that try to disrupt and weaken our peace. The joy that is rightfully ours as a King’s Kids!

As many of you know, my hubby has battled Stage 4b cancer for the past 4 years. In the world of cancer diagnoses, this is the most serious. Every year he’s had some type of treatment or intervention.

In June of this year, he had a new type of radiation treatment for a 1″ tumor in his lung. Before Christmas, he’ll have another type of radiation treatment for a 1+” tumor in his liver. Yet to talk with him, you’d think he’s as healthy as a horse. He’s as happy as a clam.

People have asked how we’ve remained joyful, calm, thankful.

Peace in the eye of the storm comes from knowing that you know that you know your anchor holds!

We’ve put on the truth in this verse. We’ve laid our cares at Jesus’ feet. We’ve dropped anchor and thrown off every weight that threatens to overtake us. We’ve asked God for answers to questions we don’t understand. While we wait for a break in the storm, wait for the sun that will shine, we thank Him because He is. He is more than able. He controls the winds and the waves, and we are more precious to Him than all of His creation.

Got a storm in your life?

Thankfulness is … God. Our anchor in the storm.
