“No one can go back and make a brand new Start. Anyone can start from now and make a brand new Ending.”

“God gave you a gift of 86, 400 seconds today.  Have you used one to say ‘Thank you’”? (William Ward )Lord, every single gift comes from You…“Lift my gaze to see life from Your perspective. Help me to understand-and treasure-every good thing You send…”(From James 1:7)   My running list of His One Thousand Gifts   http://www.aholyexperience.com/ to me:
917. “Live every day like its your last . . . one day you’ll be right.”
918. Thinking through “Hope” and what it means to me and the fun of adding to Sharon’s collection with a creative card made by Joy
H olding on tight to Jesus no matter what things look like
O ptomism because God is always up to something good in my life
P erserverence in the midst of sorrows and joys
E ncouragement in His Word
919. “Being diagnosed of cancer comes with a lot of uncertainties. It comes with a baggage that is bound to test your very character. Cancer is not the end of your life; it actually marks a new beginning. You should not let this disease rule over your life. It has to be fought, not feared. It can be handled and it can be battled with. Many people have done it, many people have survived it, and so can you…you are not alone in this fight.” —Unknown author
920. From Ovie’s note:

“God’s Word is an immovable anchor in times of storm.”  “We learn more in our valley experiences than on our mountaintops.”  “No Christian has ever been called to ‘go it alone’ in his or her walk of faith.”  “Prayer is life’s greatest time saver.”  “The dark moments of our life will last only so long as is necessary for God to accomplish His purpose in us.”  “Trusting God means looking beyond what we can see to what God sees.”  “Adversity is a bridge to a deeper relationship with God.”…..Touch Ministries.

922. “No one can go back and make a brand new Start. Anyone can start from
now and make a brand new Ending.”

923. Isaiah 41:10   New Life Version

Do not fear, for I am with you. Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will give you strength, and for sure I will help you. Yes, I will hold you up with My right hand that is right and good.
Isaiah 41:10   Amplified Version
Fear not [there is nothing to fear], for I am with you; do not look around you in terror and be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties, yes, I will help you; yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My [victorious] right hand of rightness and justice.
Isaiah 41:10   New King James
Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’

Isaiah 41:10   New Living Translation
Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.

Isaiah 41:10    King James Version
Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. 

This morning I am thinking through living in such a way that I am “fearing NOT” and  how I can start from now and create a brand new ending,

  1. Dear Paula,

    It’s neat that you are putting things on line again. I really liked your first statement about a brand new Ending.

    I’m praying for your radiant health. God has done so much in you and I rejoice with you.

    Love, Lillie Lindvall


  2. Dear Paula,
    You know what I am facing and today the Lord gave me Psalm 91 as His message of love. It says that He will sustain me and lift me up, He will give His angels charge over me so I do not smash my foot against a stone.
    To me this is His love holding me up when fear could overtake me (and did for a day or so) that I might have another tumor. I do not have to worry because He will carry me when it is necessary.. You and I have found that to be so true already. God Bless. Kathy


  3. a great study is to look through all the “do not fear” verses in the Bible…someone said there are 365 of them. I once did a study on many of them and was just looking over the findings last week for myself. God knew we would be tempted to fear and gave us reason after reason to help us in our times of fear. And grace for when we give in! 🙂


  4. Lillie, so nice to hear from you! Thx for praying. Hope your daughter in law is feeling better these days–just prayed for her.

    Kathy, I love Psalm 91 too! Great verses. God has you right in the Palm of His Hand.

    Beth, I read (and posted) a sign that said something like God telling us not to fear 365 times in the Bible so we could be fearless every day. I went to do a study a couple days ago, intending to look up one of the “Do not fear” verses daily. I was so disappointed to learn that that 365 number was made up by somebody and simply not true. Oh well…there are lots and lots of great verses on the subject but I wish somebody hadn’t conjurred up that number and I hadn’t passed along false information, ya know? Beth, if you happen to have your study on those verses in a format easy to email could you please send it to me? I’d love it! Thanks in advance in case that works out. Sometimes the uncertainty about the future and fearfulness about the “what ifs” of cancer grab me and I want to fight those thoughts with God’s Word.

    Love yas,
