Serving Despite Discouragement April 29, 2015

I think my favorite attribute of God is His sovereignty. It is truly amazing how God orchestrates so many minute details in our lives to cause just the right thing to happen at just the right time. It just so happens, as God orchestrated, that my dear husband’s sermon this past Sunday was entitled Serving Despite Discouragement. As he began his study and preparation for this sermon on Nehemiah, he did not know how profoundly we would need this message this past week.
On Wednesday at the oncology office, when hoping to hear my surgery had successfully removed all my remaining cancer, we found out the exact opposite. There was definitely more cancer in the surrounding area, but we do not know exactly where or how far it goes. And the scans show new spots on your back as well.
This news was quite shocking and could probably be termed as “discouraging”.
So this is where the rubber meets the road. How will we respond in the face of discouragement? How can we trust that God is working all this together for our good and His glory? Can we truly praise Him in the midst of this storm?
To be continued.
Stay tuned for Serving Despite Discouragement, Part 2.

In the mean time, I invite you to listen to Eric’s sermon Serving Despite Discouragement. (Spoiler Alert: Some of these questions may be addressed in the sermon. 😉 )
