I am not afraid.



So do not fear, for I am with you;

    do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
    I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

For I am the Lord your God

    who takes hold of your right hand
and says to you, Do not fear;
    I will help you. -Isaiah 41: 10-13

I am not afraid. 

Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world. 
-1 John 4:4

I am not afraid. 

But the Lord is with me like a mighty warrior. 
-Jeremiah 20:11

I am not afraid. 

We wait in hope for the Lord; He is our help and our shield. 
In Him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in His Holy Name. 
May Your unfailing love be with us, Lord, Even as we put our hope in You. 
-Psalm 33: 20-22

I am not afraid. 


As for God, his way is perfect:
    The Lord’s word is flawless;
    he shields all who take refuge in him.

-2 Samuel 22:31

I am not afraid. 



Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God;
 I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
-Isaiah 41:10

I am not afraid. 


“In the day when I cried out, You answered me, and made me bold with strength in my soul.” -Psalm 138:3
I am not afraid. 

I am safety tucked behind Jesus' shield and we are fighting this world together. Sometimes, I am so brave that I jump over His shield and yell, "BRING IT ON!" He always stops, Holds me back (Like in a bar scene fight), Puts me back behind his shield and says, "Shut your Sassy-mouth, Mary Elizabeth Bullington Bost." He knows my name. He loves me. He protects me. I have no fear. 

I am not afraid. 

Today is another big day. Another first. Another Dr. We meet with Dr. Fink, our nuero-oncologist. Today we receive a plan. A plan of treatment. A plan of healing. Our faith is not in our Dr. and her plan, but in God and His.  God equips people and I'm certain that he has designed, created, and molded Dr. Fink into everything He needs her to be. With that- I am not afraid. Not even a little. My heart is steady. My anxiety is non-existent. My hope is huge. My God is bigger. 

I am not afraid. 

God is bigger than this and Jesus can fix-it.
