Courageous Heroes of Faith

In John 14:1 we read, “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.”

What do we do when confronted with things that worry us, concern us, or make us afraid?  Do we dwell upon the very things that bring fear, or do we take our troubles to the One who is greater than any trouble?  Do we automatically grab the quickest, smartest, most technologically advanced option or do we evaluate things with an undergirding of faith in God?

While I know that Angelina Jolie is receiving much public acclaim for raising awareness about alternatives for women who MAY get breast cancer someday and for her courage in pursuing a solution to it, it’s important to reassure the many women and men out there who have elected not to be pre-emptive in that way that their stories are every bit as valid.

She wrote her story.  I am a cancer survivor and I have written mine differently.  If you’ve written yours differently, too, here’s my little shout out to you.  Write your story of courage and faith in God with a personal flourish that flows uniquely from your hand.

Arguably, it is just as courageous–if not more so–to face a diagnosis with an unshakable trust in God.   In an age of increasingly successful treatment options for every conceivable illness, heroes of the operating room can be a dime a dozen.

The Courageous Heroes of Faith are of great worth in the eyes of God.
