waves_crashing.jpgIf you are tired and weary fighting Hepatitis C, take heart. This is where we have to grab hold of Faith and Trust in God and hang on. Even when you can’t see through this moment, Trust Him, because He is there in the midst of the storm with you.

He is working in this battle to make you stronger than you ever thought possible. Not because of your strength, but His. He will bring you through the troubled waters.

When you feel like you are going under, call out to Him, He will lift you up. There have been times when I’ve been so battle weary the only thing I could utter from my aching heart was, “Jesus, You Reign, You are above all things.”

Lift your head above the waves and grab hold of Faith and Trust and remember what God is telling you, “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.” Isaiah 43:2 NIV

Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life. Psalm 138:7 NIV

He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters. He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me. They confronted me in the day of my disaster, but the Lord was my support. He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me. Psalm 18:16-19 NIV

The one who calls you is faithful and he will do it. 1 Thessalonians 5:24 NIV

In our special scripture this week may you hear His words of assurance, “He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” Colossians 1:17 NIV

The song this week has a strong message for all Hep C Giant Killer’s out there! Be Strong and Stand Firm~
