All my fears, All my dreams, Held in Your hands


So everything in life seems to have a theme song. We are naturally motivated by music, whether it is for our home team, favorite TV show, movie, or etc. Even in our worship we have songs that we sing and songs that we “feel”. In this time of battle and trust I have found such a song. Read these lyrics and then go buy the album!
"Sovereign"
© Chris Tomlin - Burning Lights Album

Sovereign in the mountain air
Sovereign on the ocean floor
With me in the calm
With me in the storm

Sovereign in my greatest joy
Sovereign in my deepest cry
With me in the dark
With me at the dawn

In your everlasting arms
All the pieces of my life
From beginning to the end
I can trust you

In your never failing love
You work everything for good
God whatever comes my way
I will trust you

Sovereign in the mountain air
Sovereign on the ocean floor
With me in the calm
With me in the storm

Sovereign in my greatest joy
Sovereign in my deepest cry
With me in the dark
With me at the dawn

In your everlasting arms
All the pieces of my life
From beginning to the end
I can trust you

In your never failing love
You work everything for good
God whatever comes my way
I will trust you

God whatever comes my way
I will trust you

All my hopes
All I need
Held in your hands

All my life
All of me
Held in your hands

All my fears
All my dreams
Held in your hands

All my hopes
All I need
Held in your hands

All my life
All of me
Held in your hands

All my fears
All my dreams
Held in your hands

In your everlasting arms
All the pieces of my life
From beginning to the end
I can trust you

In your never failing love
You work everything for good
God whatever comes my way
I will trust you

God whatever comes my way
I will trust you

God whatever comes my way
I will trust you

Between Now and OK


When I thought of 2013 I thought the toughest things I would face was turning 40 and figuring out what to buy my wife for our 18th anniversary. Then January 26th happened.

January 26th I went to have my yearly physical. My job pays for us to have a complete physical every year as a part of our wellness plan. During the ultrasound of my throat they found a lump on my thyroid. The Dr. assured me this was common and not to worry, but recommended me to see an endocrinologist. Wednesday, February 13th I met with Dr. Amanda Cunningham. She explained everything to me and then performed another ultrasound. She then informed me that the lump was fluid and solid, which meant the solid had to be biopsied. She took a sample and then went to check to see if she had enough for the pathologist.  She returned to explain that it did not look good and that she needed to biopsy the lymph nodes as well. She called me on Monday February 18th to tell me that the biopsy had come back to reveal that cancer was found in the thyroid as well as the lymph nodes. 

Cancer! Remember  the hardest things I had to face this year? No problem on those now.

My first response was fear. Then peace. You know the peace the Bible refers to as the peace that passes all understanding. See God had shown me over the weekend that it would be OK. Now my only issue is “between now and OK”. That is my theme. I know He has this planned out. I know He will provide. I have already felt the love from family and friends. It is the time “between now and OK” that is not going to be easy.

I am going to have my thyroid removed and all the lymph nodes on the right side of my neck.  A 5 to 6 hour surgery and 2 to 4 day hospital stay.  This is not going to be fun!

So why am I telling you this? Number one is to encourage you to have a yearly physical. Number two is to pray.  Pray that God gets the glory from this. Pray that healing comes. Pray that provision will be there. Pray for my bride and son to trust Him. Pray that I not be too much of a baby during the recovery process :-).  I cannot tell how thankful I am for people who have already reached out to my family and me. God truly provides!

In Him
