  1. Beautiful and so true, Heather! The Bible uses language like “called to suffer” and “do not think it strange when you suffer trials”. So many try to dumb down our faith. Thank you for being a testimony of true faith that endures suffering giving the glory to God.

  2. Beautiful! Amen and Amen…such a poignant post-Thank you so much for the reminder, Heather. You Rock!
    Take care of your pretty self.

  3. The wonderful truth is so refreshing.
    Only in Him can we be set free from these fears that want to entangle our lives. Wonderful, God-inspired words, sis~

  4. Your post has spoken to me. I had a rough week since last Sunday. I was in terrible pain and went to ER. There they told me I was pregnant. More test were done to determine the cause of pain. Baby was not found in ultrasound. I might have an ectopic pregnancy or is to early to detect it yet. The suggested treatments were not what I wanted to hear. It has been a roller coaster of emotions. Your post has helped me see things in a different way. I am letting go of fear. Trusting God that everything will be done according to his will.

  5. heather, as always…so powerful. thought provoking. as i’ve dealt with my own suffering i have to remind myself over and over of what the promises are that i need to cling to. this post was needed tonight as i wrestle with fear. i am not a big fan of the unknown – ha, who is?!
    thank you.

  6. Thank you, Heather.
    As so often happens, God is speaking through you in exactly the way I needed to hear it. Thank you for continuing to share your journey and ministering to my heart.
    With love and prayers,

  7. Oh goodness, Heather. That was such a beautiful and encouraging post. Life-changing words.
    Thank you for letting God work through you in the midst of all you deal with.

  8. Praise Him!
    If you’re like me, you’ll need to be reminded of these truths often. It seems no sooner than I declare, “claim” or cling to these truths, I’m tempted to start letting my thoughts and heart be overwhelmed and blindsided!
    God IS Sovereign and completely trustworth and faithful.
    Keep trusting! (Ummm. I’m speaking for both of us!)

  9. This is exactly what I am struggling with in regards to Parker’s pulmonary hypertension.
    Except I think you are farther along the path of Faith than I am. I tend to take two steps forward and 50 steps back.

  10. I don’t have cancer but I too lack faith and have lived in fear. today is a new day. I am going to believe today God can. He will keep His promises.
    thank you for sharing your heart and the Father’s heart and touching mine.

  11. Your writings have been a blessing and this one is really great…Gods blessing on you!!! and your family!!!!
