In Reply to: Why me, why is it that I keep getting bad news. What test is God putting me through? posted by Bernadette on August 03, 1999 at 15:11:16:
I'm so so so sorry to hear about this news, and I'm praying very hard that the tests show that it is NOT MS. But as you have so often reminded us, you don't have to worry about not being able to take it anymore, b/c God can take it for you. I know you can feel his arms around you! Just hold onto them tight. You and I both know that there are times when "being strong" and "keeping your chin up" just won't cut it. That's when we need to give in and let God take over! He's more than capable and wants to take all of our burdens b/c he loves us so much! I know you know this b/c you've reminded us all so many times before.
"I will love thee, O Lord my strength. The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower."
"The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked, even my enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled & fell. Though a host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident. One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple. For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion; in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hid me; he shall set me upon a rock. And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me; therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the Lord."
