Isaiah 41:11-13 
  11 “All who rage against you
   will surely
be ashamed and disgraced;
those who oppose you
   will be as nothing and
12 Though you search for your enemies,
will not find them.
Those who wage war against you
   will be as nothing
at all.
13 For I am the LORD your God
   who takes
hold of your right hand
and says to you, Do not fear;
   I will help

When I read this today, I could not help but think who my enemies are.  They are satan's advisaries come to wage war upon us, as well as the troublesome times that we go through.
Recently, Joshua had a bout of constipation.  We tried 1 thing, didn't work.  Now, we're trying something else, mineral oil.  If these things do not work, then we need to have a colonoscopy and an upper GI, and possibly some other tests.
And yet, in knowing these things, I am calm; I have such a peace.  For it says above that every pain that I go through - and if I use that pain for the Lord's good, it is never in vain.  Ever.  For He takes hold of our strongest hand, and personally whispers in my ear, "Jocelyn, do not fear.  I will help you."
What a releif to know we can count soley on the Lord for our strength and might, and wisdom.
