Firm Footing for your Path

How beautiful…are the feet of the messenger bringing good news!
Isaiah 52:7

Waiting.

You do a lot of that when you walk this breast cancer journey. Wait for the results of the mammogram; wait for the ultrasound and the biopsy and the phone call regarding the lumpectomy or chemotherapy. Wait, wait and wait. It is hard and it is scary. That is the bad news. The good news is this – God knows. He knows where you are, and He is right there with you. But even better, He is not empty-handed. He has come with a wonderful promise to soothe those nerves that are raw from waiting.

I’ll take the hand of those who don’t know the way,
who can’t see where they’re going.
I’ll be a personal guide to them,
directing them through unknown country.
I’ll be right there to show them what roads to take,
make sure they don’t fall into the ditch.
These are the things I’ll be doing for them —
sticking with them, not leaving them for a minute.

Isaiah 42:16

Today, are you bogged down with chemotherapy or radiation? Are you struggling with those horrid drains for one more week? Maybe just the everyday stresses of life on top of doctor's appointments or waiting for results has your heart as low as your white blood count. Then let Him fit your feet with the firm, hopeful shoes you will need to walk through this day.

So, we’re not giving up. How could we? Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace.
II Corinthians 4:16

GOD doesn’t come and go. God lasts.
He’s Creator of all you can see or imagine.
He doesn’t get tired out, doesn’t pause to catch his breath.
And he knows
everything, inside and out.
He energizes those who get tired,
gives fresh strength to dropouts.
For even young people tire and drop out,
young folk in their prime stumble and fall.
But those who wait upon GOD get fresh strength.
They spread their wings and soar like eagles,
They run and don’t get tired,
they walk and don’t lag behind.

Isaiah 40:28-31
