Faith or Fear Vlog

So, I'm trying this thing again....this vlog thing. Bear with me as this is a bit outside my comfort zone and  for some reason during the uploading process the voice doesn't match the words. Have I told you I am technically challenged! It might be that I am using my computer webcam to record instead of a video camera.

I can't believe it has been over a week since I have shared with you all. There is so much going on in my heart right now. I hope to share more in the days to come as I near the end of the radiation leg of this journey. Who hoo, this door is almost closed!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Praying God encourages your heart on the road that has been set before you. Please let me know how I can be praying for you.

Much love,
Stacy

Hi Stacy,
You are so sweet! You are asking what you can pray for us. Bless your caring heart!
You did a great job with the vlog, way better than I ever could especially since I am so camera shy.

Thanks for sharing on Daniel. I love all the prophetic stories that lie there. I too love Daniel's faith and how he feared God and Him alone for God did give us a spirit of faith and we are not to fear anything other than God. He is Holy and wholly worthty of our fear, love and hope.
I am praying for you Stacy and asking Him for strength for you body.

God bless you sister,
<><

Stacy,
Thank you for posting your vlog! How amazing is our God to share messages/stories for us to learn who He is and how He works. We are to walk in faith everyday and not let our circumstances cause fear.
Thank You Father for my newly founded sister. Thank You for allowing me to see Your hand at work. May God bless you Stacy!

First, look at all of your hair :-)

You look amazing and radiant!

What a love filled post and such truth. I too love the book of Daniel and how it reminds us of the faithfulness of God to those who seek Him earnestly and the peace that surpasses all understanding will come from that!

Thankful you are nearing the end of this part of your journey!

Love and hugs,
Jill

hi Stacy,
I came over when I saw your comment at Jill's. Praying for you, for His peace and for Him to strengthen you with His healing. :)

Thank you for asking if you could pray for us, there is a little boy, Sam, he would need prayer, if you could pray for him that would be wonderful! :) his story is in my blog, www.faithcomethby.blogspot.com

thank you so much :)

It is wonderful that you are nearing the end of radiation...and that your body, although tired, has responded well. Your beautiful hair is growing back :)!! Thank you for your huge heart of compassion towards others and for praying for those in need as you are also receiving our prayers! My prayers continue for you. If you would remember Lou (my father in law, I'd be so grateful. He has been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer of the esophagus which has matastisized to the liver. He does not have long, but he is a believer and trusts the Lord for all (he is 85, but so young and healthy till now).
Praising God with you and lifting you up for continued healing!

I just had to smile and got the shivers when I saw your beautiful face today!!!!! It the hair thing. There is something about it --- when the hair starts coming back --- eyes begin to shine, smiles get bigger, and it's like new life has sprung out all over. You shine, girl!!!!! How good God is, and His radiance is coming through you.

When I think of the Book of Daniel, I think of El Elyon, The Most High God, who is in control of everything --- not only kings and kingdoms --- but little old ME! Thank you for the reminder today! Still praying for you and will check back often!!!!

Well, first you look great. Second, you sound great. Third, the TRUTH is great and is shining through your every word.

Faith over fear... I hear you.

I, too, will meet with my oncologist for the first time post chemo on Tuesday. Not sure what to expect, but I do go with some questions.

I understand a small bit of where you're at, both with potential fears and with passionate faith. I continue to keep your face before me when I pray and will do so in the coming days are you rally your heart toward home and victory! You're doing great, Stacy, and the witness of all heaven lives in you.

So glad to call you my friend.

peace~elaine

I love getting to see you and hear you speak on these vlogs...such a blessing to me. You look wonderful too btw...This message you gave soo encouraged me. I soo get it. Faith over fear...seems easy but isn't always. And yet we do have that choice and I too am chosing faith. Faith that my God will see me through this life no matter what may come my way. He knows the beginning from the end. Wants what is best for me. My prayer is that we would all know His peace as we step forward in faith. Thank you for your prayers for my daughter. I soo appreciate it. She has been through alot in the female department and this is just such an answer to prayer. Our God is soo mighty and soo merciful. Praying for you everyday! YAY...so close to the finish line now. LOVE, Debbie

Stacy,
In the midst of pain and suffering you continue to minister and smile. I can tell God is using this trial for a valuable purpose and I want to tell you, he is being glorified through your life.

I just thought of this verse.

I Peter 4:13 "But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy."

It's very hard to rejoice when we suffer, but you're doing a pretty wonderful job of it.

Thank you for your smile. It warmed my heart today.
Love,
Lynnette

Dear Stacy,

"We don't have to fear....we can walk in faith!" How freeing and comforting were your words!

I loved and learned so much from your teaching when I listened to it today.

I loved being able to hear your voice and see your sweet face when you spoke.

You are an incredible teacher Stacy-your Bible Study group is so blessed to have you as their leader and the blog world is also blessed to be able to tap into your heart and into your love of God via the internet.

I pray that you continue to walk in Faith as your radiation treatment wraps up(YEAH!).

I pray that you are able to regain your strength quickly and put this part of your journey behind you.

I look forward to what the Lord has in store for you next and how you will use it to spread His Word and His love like you have done so amazingly, openly, fearlessly, and honestly with your journey with cancer.

Thank you for allowing God to speak through you so eloquently and in such a way that I can better understand His words and His Message.

Love,

Kari

P.S. Happy Valentine's Day!

Stacy, I knew that you were beautiful on the inside from your reflections, your strength and your faith. Now I see that you are beautiful on the outside as well. You did a great job with this post and we look forward to more updates, healing and love shared.
