God's Promise

My cousin sent this birthday card to me. She is dying from a rare disease. Her father died from this same disease a few years ago. She is 36 years old.

Always remember when God made you He did so with a purpose and a plan. He saw all your days before you lived one of them and placed over you the covering of his protective love. He has allowed nothing to come into your life that has not first been screened through that love. His hand has remained upon you to this very day. He calls you by name. You are his beloved child... the apple of his eye... the delight of his heart. Today you are in the exact place he wants you to be, and tomorrow he will be with you as he has always been- in goodness,in kindness,in faithfulness. ( Roy Lessin)
Genesis 15:1 I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.

I am speechless. My cousin loves Jesus. She knows that her illness is a part of God's plan.
He has never promised that this life would be easy. In fact it is pretty hard at times. But one thing He did promise is that he would never leave us nor forsake us.
Our family prays for Misty to be healed, and we believe that with God all things are possible.

My prayer today is that I will be thankful for my health and that others would see Jesus in me.

Pray for my cousin Misty. Pray that God would heal her, and if for some reason that healing is not manifested here on this earth, that she will never take her eyes off of Him.
God is our hope,
