What battles are you fighting? Do you consider fighting battles to be a season of drowning or exhausting? Let’s chat for a moment….
As you have previously read, if you have been following my story, I went through cancer diagnosis, surgery and treatment. What you may not know is 2 1/2 years prior to diagnosis, that same cyst was fine needle biopsied with no definitive results. Honestly, if the diagnosis had occurred then, I believe I would have been in a season of drowning and extreme fear. Why? Because my relationship with God was not my foundation. My abilities were my foundation. I knew God existed but my sincere relationship with Him did not. Do you have a relationship with God? Do you have an ongoing dialog with Him?
So, basically, God knew I wasn’t ready to trust Him, nor fight a cancer battle on my own. Then I heard the call of God on my heart and proceeded to learn and grow a true and faithful relationship with Him. God’s strength, comfort and peace saw me through my trial. The cross I carried was shared by the shoulder of Jesus. To be honest, He carried the heavier load.
From the moment we started testing and doing ultrasounds, my foundation in Christ facilitated a peace that lay in prayer and seeking guidance and wisdom from the One who knows all because He created all and has been here from the beginning of time, through the end of all time, and is actively present with me today; everyday.
Some of you may ask how can I trust and love a God that gave me cancer…. Well I humbly disagree with you. God did not bring sickness, disease, death or sin to this world. Satan did that. Satan attacked me with cancer, God allowed the attack because of the wonderful fruit it has brought forth.
I am so thankful to have God walking with me through this life. I am so humbled that God loves me for me…..
Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
2 Corinthians 12:9 And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
