Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth." Genesis 9:13

Low income and lesser quality of care

I am not ready to explain this entirely.  I need some more information from Dr. Brain first.  But today I learned that I make $173 too much to get help with one of my extremely expensive meds and will presumably be switching fairly soon (I have 2 months left, a lot of which will be tapering).  I'm probably facing significant time in the hospital and could wind up with a med that doesn't work as well, then in 15 months we'll have to decide if we want to reverse the process.  It's been kind of one thing too many and I'm really tired and frustrated with the whole thing.  I'm so blessed compared to many uninsured people but  it just shouldn't be that way.  If the only med that helps me is somewhat obscure then I should have access to it.

Anyway, more when I know more.  Too tired to go into it tonight.

Hey, Jen, I'll be following this development as you know.

Can you please let me know what you thought of Becky's response to your regrets about student loans?

Isn't this classic God Calling excellent?? It's the 12-12 entry.

A mentor of mine calls worries like this "temptations" that should be resisted just like you would resist a temptation to steal. "Evil is powerful, and fear is one of evil's most potent forces."

This devotion really speaks to me. I need to be reminded of such basics over and over...so remind me when I forget! :)

Care Free

Perfect love casteth out fear.

Love and fear cannot dwell together. By their very natures they cannot exist side by side. Evil is powerful, and fear is one of evil's most potent forces.

Therefore a weak vacillating love can be soon routed by fear, whereas a perfect Love, a trusting Love, is immediately the Conqueror, and fear, vanquished, flees in confusion.

But I am Love because God is Love, and I and the Father are one. So the only way to obtain this perfect Love, that dispels fear, is to have Me more and more in your lives. You can only banish fear by My Presence and My Name.

Fear of the future -- Jesus will be with us.

Fear of poverty -- Jesus will provide. (And so to all the temptations of fear.)

You must not allow fear to enter. Talk to Me. Think of Me. Talk of Me. Love Me. And that sense of My Power will so possess you that no fear can possess your mind. Be strong in this My Love.

"And it shall come to pass in the day that the Lord shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve." Isaiah 14:3
