God is an amazing editor!

I am so thankful for the opportunity to see Remedy Carte and her super mom Heather yesterday at the Ronald McDonald's home in Seattle, Washington.  I have been a stalker and prayer-er of this heart-warming child with a heart-breaking news.  She has a brain cancer.

She was recently featured on the Today's Show for being "Super Remedy" with her purple cape and everything.

Since she has multiple meds and chemo etc, her real self gets hidden by the chemicals.  Some days are just hard. It hasn't been smooth sailing at all with her little body hitting bottom and she has consistently ended up in the hospital after every chemo.

I met another fighter who after graduating from High School early in February was diagnosed with cancer in May.  Not the road he wanted to take.  But, he is encouraging and fighting alongside Remedy.

  She was recently featured on the Today's Show for being "Super Remedy" with her purple cape and everything.  You can see it here.  Her mom wanted to see the other takes because it was a harder day for Remedy.  However, I pondered that for a long time.  I thought about how the Lord see all.  (Proverbs 15:3) Nothing is hidden.   Just like the camera that was always rolling and recording the day.

However, the Today's Show editors did something that God does. They didn't display the cranky sayings or bad attitude that crept in that day.  They edited it out!

It is just like our Loving Father. For all who trust in Jesus alone as their Savior, His blood covers our sins.  He is the filter.  But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. (1 John 1:7) 

Our little video with Remedy!

 "I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more." Isaiah 43:25  God "remembers" no more, but we are the ones who take the "out-takes/bloopers" and want to replay our bad/wrongs.  But, they are laying on the floor.  Leave them there!  Don't keep playing the sins over.  Confess them, and with faith in Jesus, walk in the light.
