Finding Peace

My doctor took my hand and said, “Mrs. Howard, I am sorry to tell you this. You have cancer.” I was stunned. Questions raced through my mind. Would I suffer? Would I lose my hair? Would I die?

When I got home, I searched in my Bible for words that would give me peace. Then I read 2 Timothy 1:7, “The Spirit God gave us does not make us afraid. He is the source of power and love and self-control.” That verse helped me understand that my fears were coming from the devil. I believed God had a plan for my life and that He would make His plan happen.

My fears went away, and God filled me with His peace. God has blessed me and I have been free of cancer for almost eighteen years. Our Bible verses for today remind me that God’s peace will be with me and guard me. Because of that, I am no longer afraid.

Are you afraid of something today? God’s Word will give you comfort and peace!
