Today is Thursday Thirteen.

Here are thirteen Bible Verses that are giving me hope for Jimmy as he fights cancer and help me reflect on how good God is, how He is able, how He is faithful, how He has shown Himself to be so present and with us.

My hope is in Him, and my prayer for you is that you will enjoy these verses as much as I have.

May they speak to your heart in whatever situation you are dealing with.

Awesome verses!

And here's one that carried me thru my dad's cancer-battle...ok, so it's more like 3...

"Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation." Psalm 91:14-16

I hope your husband gets better soon. Here's a verse God used to speak to my heart after I found a lump in my breat and subsequently went thru chemo, a mastectomy, and 33 radiation treatments:

I shall not die, but live and declare the works of the Lord. The Lord hath chastened me sore: but he hath not given me over to death. Psalm 118:17-18 KJV

May the Lord be with you both during this difficult journey.
