The Fog is Lifting--Send Me Your Favorite Bible Verse!

I have a few Bible verses that I turn to when I am having a rough time. Maybe some of you have a good verse that you turn to when things are tough? I would love it if you would share them with me, so I can add them to my word doc.
Today is already a better day. I am very weak, but my brain is much clearer! I was actually able to carry on a conversation this morning! Showering is always difficult--my legs were very shaky today! But the hot water feels so good. :)
My hair is really thinning now. The past few days I've been losing a lot of it each time I shower or brush it. I'm hoping to get a shorter haircut soon, then I might have to go hat shopping!
Thanks, Whidbey, for the the ideas about the holidays. I know my health is more important at this time, but I'm a mom, and of course I don't want to "ruin" everyone's holiday. I'll try to set it aside and not worry about it. :-)
In my blog from last Friday (I think), I mentioned that the doc said light exercise helps the fatigue. I think he meant the normal fatigue one gets from chemo, not what I've been through the past few days! I could barely move from the bed or chair I was in! The next few days I should try and move more, to regain some of my strength. Today, just walking around the house is enough. I'm trying to get up and move around more.
I FINALLY got my new tv for the bedroom. Thanks to my hubby for letting me get one--he's always been against a tv in the bedroom. Not very romantic ;). Unfortunately it doesn't work without an antennae or cable hook up, so it'll be a few days before it works.
Don't know if my cousin Jill has a chance to read this, but just want her to know that she is in my prayers as she battles lymphoma. You can do this! And PLEASE accept help from others. People really do want to help, and they really do care about you. Love you!!
Hope to get a bunch of Bible verses from you all!
Thanks for the love and prayers; I pray for blessings for each of you all the time!
"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10 (NIV)


  1. of course ma: "I can do anything through him who stregthens me" philippians 4:13

  2. John 15:7
    "If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will and it shall be done unto you."

    Tina, you just keep the Word in your heart, mind, and mouth and what you ask will be given. God has already blessed you in ways that only He could do. Rejoice in the Lord Always, and again I say, REJOICE!

  3. Rom 8:18 "...consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us."

  4. Some of my favorite verses:

    "The lazy person is full of excuses saying, "I can't go outside because there might be a lion on the road! Yes, I'm sure there's a lion out there!"

    "It is better to live alone in the desert than with a crabby, complaining wife."

    "At the place where the road passes some sheepfolds, Saul went into a cave to relieve himself. But as it happened, David and his men were hiding in that very cave!"

  5. And my all-time favorite:

    "If a man's testicles are crushed, or his penis cut off, he may not be included in the assembly of the Lord."

  6. Wonderful verses and inspiration. Ken, not quite what I was looking for, but you made me laugh! Love you!

  7. Oh Tina I feel for you ... that fatigue can be so hard physically and mentally. Hope things improve soon.

  8. When I was diagnosed in Jan 2009 with ovarian cancer, a friend pointed me to Isaiah 43:2-3, "When you pass through the waters (floods), I will be with you; and through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire (and boy, do we!), you will not be scorched, Nor will the flame burn you. For I am the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior". I can't tell you how many times I read and re-read those words. They comforted me so.
