So I’m halfway through the radiation treatments and I have had very little side effects – occasional nausea, hair loss, and headaches. But I’ve got some great wigs in a variety of colors!
This song came on the radio, as I was heading into radiation. The chorus
“You’re the one who conquers giants
You’re the one who calls out kings
You shut the mouths of lions
You tell the dead to breathe
You’re the one who walks through fire
You take the orphan’s hand
You are the one Messiah
You are I am
You are I am”
We certainly serve an audacious God.
The lectionary text for this past week, shows Jesus casting out demons. I think of the Florence and the Machine song “Shake it Off” with the lyrics “Every demon wants his pound of flesh….And it’s hard to dance with a devil on your back…So shake him off”
We serve an audacious God. The Upper Room devotional had this verse from Psalm 62:8 this morning, “Trust in [God] at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.” These are my reminders that God is faithful to deliver and no matter how my foolish pride may get in the way, I can always pour out my heart to God.
