I can see it in your eyes.
Fear. Anxiety. Worry. Sadness. Hurt. Frustration. Anger

You think I don't notice.
I notice everything.

You try to hide it.
I see right through you.

You don't understand.
You love me so much.
You want what is best for me.
You wish you could take it away.
You wish it was you.
You wish there was something more to do.

I wish you could come inside my brain.  I wish you could sit with me for a cup of coffee while I share with you how God works in my life.  How he provides for all of my needs.  What he has placed on my heart and how he has confirmed it.  How he calms my heart to see his blessings when things are not going the way I want them to.  I wish I could help you understand what I feel with such certainty.  That which God took the time to lay on my heart. And confirm.  Over and over.

I can't explain it well.
I have a hard time finding the right words.
I know what the doctor says.
I also know some things about my God:

He tells us to ask for what we need. (1 John 5:14)
He tells us to be persistent. (Luke 18)
Faith made people well in the Bible (Matthew 9:18-34)
There isn't anything God can't do.  (Jeremiah 32:27)
God has a plan. Jeremiah (29:11)
He will fight for me. I need only to be still.  (Exodus 14:14)

Dear friends, stand with me.
Dig in your heels and stand tall.
Stand in Faith.
The devil is smart.
He knows that some of us are wavering.
Fear and doubt are two of his greatest weapons.
Fight him with everything in you.
Even when it is hard.
Even when all evidence points the other way.
Tell the devil to get lost.
There is no place for him on Team Chin!
Scream it at him if you have to
Our God is SOOOOOO much bigger than he could ever dream to be.
Stand in Faith.

I am going to leave you with a video to watch.
Britt Nicole says it so much better than I ever could.
