Fearless




Guest Post by Missy.
Laura through MY eyes....
 

Two weeks before I leave on the biggest adventure of my life, I begin another journey with my sister Laura.  

We've done the hurting... 
Now it's time for the healing. 




It's time to thank the Father for what He will do,
and for the poison that pumps through my friend's blood in order to cure her. 

It's a day to celebrate chemo, and all that it brings.




And as I watch the locks fall to the floor,
I see what is really happening in this room.




We are taking her down to her core. 
What will be left?




"Love...


 


Joy...




Peace...




Longsuffering...





Kindness...





Goodness...




Faithfulness..."







And a fearless face that shines so bright with the Holy Spirit...

with the love,
the joy,
the PEACE,
the patience....

What's left is the fruit.





 
When the Lord shines on our faces, do we reflect it?

When we are asked to face Him,
to really face Him
in our fears,
with our lives,
with our futures, 
do we trust Him and let Him continue to shine?






"A happy heart makes the face cheerful,
but heartache crushes the spirit."

-Proverbs 15:13


Thank you, Lord;
For making her heart so happy
that we will never know of any heartache.

  1. To witness this from a digital perspective, it is so obvious how emotional this event really was for you and those involved...I don't have the words other than I know that God has you in his care and has Angels all around you. You are my hero Laura Jean...
