“Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.” Psalm 91:14

A few years ago when I was going through the depths of my abusive marriage, I relied heavily on the passages from Psalm 91 for strength and courage. I relied on it so much so, I put it on my license plate to remind me that I wasn’t going through that alone and I alone could not go through that. It was one of those times when I know I was carried.

Today, I was scheduled for chemo. It was postponed, however, as the doctor spotted a couple of areas of concern on a recent PET scan. I will have another biopsy next week and then chemo will start. It is so easy to get caught up in the fear of the unknown. This is a very trying time. Throughout my life, I have known a few friends and relatives who have faced cancer and a few who have passed away from it. From where I sit, the inside looking out, its something I hoped would not come or at the least not for many more years from now. But then again, many others are and have gone through this, why should I be any different?

When we are deep in it, when we are at the end of our rope, when we feel so far gone, what a comfort to know that God will rescue us simply because we love him. All we need to do is call on His name and we are granted the greatest protection there is.
