We were made to be…

COURAGEOUS in the LORD!! Looking life in the eyes – at the joys, the sorrows, the surprises, the trials, the memories good and bad GOD STILL REMAINS!! He calls us to be courageous and fight with His armor! We are nothing without Him and my life is a true testimony to that! Walking through this life with Chronic Lyme Disease and being in remission now while hearing from many many others just learning of their CLD they have been diagnosed with brings joy and tears! Joy as the Lord has allowed me to be that person to so many who call when fear hits, when they don’t know what to do or where to go when they feel so helpless! That’s where God shines because HE PROMISES TO BE WITH US NO MATTER WHAT, NO MATTER WHEN, NO MATTER WHERE WE ARE! And I get to share that with them! I can’t take away the pain or the fear but I can prove to them that God is there and never leaves! He will get them through each day, each minute of pain, each second of nausea, each step they can’t take on their own, etc. etc etc…through this time of remission and some little flare-ups I have learned that even on my best days I still need HIM more than ever and need to wake up every day asking the Lord for HIS strength and for HIS Joy to shine through in my life! I do not know what tomorrow holds but I do know who to put my faith and trust in tomorrow and every day after and that is Jesus Christ! He will never run from any mess you’ve gotten yourself in, He will never leave you but is pursuing you-  let Him in and see what beauty He brings to your life!  Whether you have lyme disease, cancer or a broken heart call upon Him!  He is already waiting with open arms!  He loves you more than you can imagine!

Please continue to pray for our family as we continue to walk through this and many other family friends who are dealing with CLD or other health issues!  The power of prayer is one of the most amazing things I have been able to be a part of and I would love to pray for you!  If you have a prayer request or praise I would love to join you in praying and lifting you up to the Lord daily!  Please email me at annrclark@gmail.com

My mottos these past few months:

I want to put my hope in God’s Word – Get my eyes off of what I am going through and turn to Him!  Fixing my eyes on Him not the problems or pains!  He can handle it and work it out way better than I can!

God’s Time – God’s Way – For God’s Glory

For nothing is impossible with God – Luke 1:37

DELIGHT (wow what a cool word) yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart – Psalm 37:4

Well hope this has been an enjoyable and encouraging read!  Hope to keep more up to date in my blog!

Shining in His Light, Ann
