Day 22: Listening for His Protection


As I am rejoicing, and saying
"Thank you Father!"
for protecting me through this 
latest round of testing,
and the biopsies that are "benign,"

I am trusting that He still holds me
through the painful days
and weary ways.

And my prayer for you today is that 
you would feel the arms of Jesus
and the brush of Angel Wings
surrounding you
and carrying you through 
every trial
and every storm you may be facing. 
 




This song was a favorite in our house
when our children were young,
but my heart is still moved
these many years later.


May you be encouraged as you listen to this blessing:







This is Day 22 for the #Write31Days Challenge
Thank you for walking with me through this
#31Days of Listening with Chronic Illness.

    That song is so beautiful: thank you for sharing.

    And thank you so much for your sweet encouragement via comments on my blog, especially today's. I was struggling with having shared so openly again, so your words were a balm.
