Passing through the waters

Isaiah 43

1 But now, this is what the LORD says-he who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.

2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.

3 For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I give Eypyt for your ransom and Seba in your stead.”

As I walked through the city park today in Ashland with Olivia, Mandi (one of her friends), my nephew, and my sister-in-law, this was one of many beautiful scenes that caught my eye!

After getting home and reflecting on the memories of the day, I pulled up this picture. As I looked at it and then read the Scripture above, I felt thankful!

Thankful that whether we are……………

Passing through the water,

Or passing through the river,

Or walking through the fire,

We will not be harmed.


Because the Lord of Israel is our God!

Nick had a good day today! He was able to spend the afternoon with Tim (my husband), his Uncle Gary, and all of his brothers along with several friends playing poker (of all things) while we took the little ones to play in the sun!


Isn’t God amazing!?!? Nick is doing normal things every day!!!!!!!!! Praise God!!!!!!!!!

Thank you for your continued prayers for our family as we walk through the fire!!! We truly feel God’s presence every single day!

  1. There is just one thing that stays constant in our lives as our circumstances and the events of our days change and that is the whereabouts of our Lord–He is ALWAYS with us. Thank you so much for the reminder. Praying

    God Bless you, Nick and fam.

  2. DAILY MIRACLES! Thank you for sharing them with us. God HAS performed a miracle in Nick’s life. How great that he spent his day with the guys. I just love that.

    That is one of my favorite verses in Isaiah. Thanks for the reminder.

    Love to you,

  3. Over and over I am so amazed by the strength that God gives you and the peace that I hear in your words. Your journey through cancer has been so different than ours and yet there are similarities… I remain SO very thankful that God brought our paths together…. I have such a deeeeep love and respect for you.

    May God’s great grace and strength continue to carry you through each and every day. May you feel His right hand of victory holding you up. May you always know and feel the prayers of those that are praying for you. We love you Tammy… far beyond what our words can say.

    Be blessed today in knowing that you are held by the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, the true Master of the Universe.


  4. It is wonderful to see tangible results of all the prayers going up for Nick! I am so glad he had such a nice weekend and an awesome week! Praise God! It is great to “hear” the joy in your words, Tammy! Thanks for the smile today 🙂

  5. Tammy I shared Nick’s story at church yesterday and we prayed for him and will continue to uphold him and your family in prayer, great to hear he has had a good day, and remember Jesus is there with you all.
    “God, remind me that even when life seems unfair and things don’t turn out like I expect, You have a plan for my life and it is good.”
    God Bless you all,
