He cares

Please pray that God will give me courage today πŸ’—| During a terrifying storm the Disciples woke up the Lord Jesus, who was *asleep* and they were like, DON’T YOU CARE [We are all gonna DIE?!?!]. The Lord Jesus challenged their faith and calmed the storm, leaving the disciples even MORE terrified 😳 bc β€œ what manner of man is this? Even the sea and waves obey Him” 😳. Later, Peter would reassure his readers, β€œHe cares for you.” Craig pointed this progression in faith out recently. (Thanks, Craig!!) I asked Daddy to read me Mark 4 in the hospital 😒. And I just thought to myself, He cares. He cares. It is a HUGE faith challenge to believe He cares for you when your circumstances are bad. And then they get WORSE. And THEN they get IMPOSSIBLE πŸ˜‘. However, this is the pattern of how God does things as outlined in the scriptures. But, while God asks for our faith, He also makes room for our fear, doubt, and grief – and reminds us that definitive proof of His love and power is at the cross AND the empty tomb. Having survived many bad/scary things, it is difficult to hope. This is characteristic of Trauma Brain πŸ˜‘. If you know what I’m talking about I encourage you to simply keep the upwards convo going. Or start it, if you need to πŸ’—. I started knitting to strengthen my mind and hands so I can learn Cued Speech and ASL. This is for my friend who survived *2* AVMs, and is now fighting breast cancer.
