Are you in the fiery furnace,
That furnace of affliction;
Are the flames heating-up,
Driving you to distraction?
Sometimes the way is very smooth,
And, life is easy-going;
But, sooner or later…we all know,
Things happen…quite disturbing.
There are things we can avoid,
Turn and go the other way;
And, there are things we must stand and face,
Their outcome we cannot delay.
When things are out of our control,
Our hands tied behind us;
It does the heart good to know,
That God is always for us.
For, as in days of old,
Three…in a fiery furnace…stood;
They did not stand alone…you see,
A fourth One…the fire with-stood.
Today, that promise is still our's,
We need not stand alone;
Our LORD is always with us,
God is alive…and on His throne!

On May 31, 2001 - Hubby was diagnosed with cancer. He will lose a kidney on June 22. This poem is dedicated to him.
Outcome: Operation successful; cancer nowhere else in body. Praise the Lord! We thank all who prayed for him (and for me). Father truly does answer our prayers; He really is in control and we can trust Him: He wants what is best for us!
2007 - It is now 6 years, that hubby is 'cancer-free'...thank You, Lord!
