"He will still deliver us"

Friends have come to pray and minister and encourage. Linda just does not feel up to posting a new blog so Joyce and Mitzi are doing it for her.

The race is over. She has crossed the last hurdle of chemo and radiation. ALL DONE!!! But the side effects, the suffering are continuing for a season. Linda is still in need of prayer:
** for relief of stomach cramps and diarrhea
** for a lifting of her spirits
** for God's continual healing and comfort
** for balancing of emotions
** for relief from fatigue and ability to "get up and go" again
** for thriving and restoration of her healthy cells

As we all sat quietly, the Lord gave us II Corinthians 1:8-11:
"For we do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, of our trouble which came to us in Asia (Blairsville): that we were burdened beyond measure, above strength, so that we despaired even of life.
Yes, we had the sentence of death(cancer) in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves but in God who raises the dead,
who delivered us from so great a death, and does deliver us; in whom we trust that He will still deliver us,
you also helping together in prayer for us, that thanks may be given by many persons on our behalf for the gift granted to us through many."
We know you have been awaiting the posting of "IT IS FINISHED" and here it is. But as Linda has been "burdened beyond measure", she now desires, above all else, to trust in Him and not herself and to never go back to a life of complacency, entitlement, and comfort.

Let's continue to pray.....................
