Dear Friends and Family,
(MUCH shorter video – under three minutes! Woo hoo!)
Cancer stinks. (Update coming soon. Seeing doc tomorrow. Keep praying.) But God…
One good coming from the stink is my renewed commitment to tell my God stories. I’m hoping each story will reveal the God of the Bible, and that each of you will say your next yes to God.
This story: He invites all of us to know Him – not only know about Him.
I’ve come from knowing very little about God, to knowing more about Him, to knowing Him, to the thrill of knowing Him – more and more.
Current example: I know the Bible teaches God is our rest; He’s shade in the heat. We can sing for joy in the shadow of His wings. I believe this is true because the Bible tells me so.
Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him. Psalm 62:5
But this year – through the cancer – I’m coming to know God, experientially, as my rest, shade, and shadow (where I really can sing for joy!).
Here’s how it looks for me:
I curl up in my bed and imagine myself at the throne of grace – which God invites us to come, boldly!
And I just stay. Right there.
Where my BIG God, who dearly loves me, keeps His eye on me. I’m quiet.
Rest. Shade. Shadow.
That’s it. I don’t do anything. I’m just there. And getting a glimpse of what “cease striving and know that I am God” looks like.
In what way do you know about God but don’t know Him? And you want to! You believe but from the stands – like a fan. But God invites us to know Him, like a “Chad hits hard!” tackle!
I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. Ephesians 1:17
Thanking God for you! Praying we know Him – more and more.
Love, Becky (His.Princess.Warrior.)
(Who, by faith, is finding Him faithful as my rest, shade, and shadow for joyful singing!
He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us again. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us, as you help us by your prayers. Then many will give thanks on our behalf for the gracious favor granted us in answer to the prayers of many. (2 Corinthians 1:10-11)
