My story is like so many others. I have Stage 3a Breast Cancer.
I love what 2 Corinthians 1:3-5 (the message) says:
3-5 All praise to the God and Father of our Master, Jesus the Messiah! Father of all mercy! God of all healing counsel! He comes alongside us when we go through hard times, and before you know it, he brings us alongside someone else who is going through hard times so that we can be there for that person just as God was there for us. We have plenty of hard times that come from following the Messiah, but no more so than the good times of his healing comfort—we get a full measure of that, too.
God is truly such an amazing Loving Daddy!! He Provides for us. Let's walk through this together and encourage one another with the comfort we receive from our Perfect most amazing Father. Another incredible thing, is that it's not just us who can relate to each other, we have a High Priest who gets it. Hebrews 4:15-16 (the message) says:
The High Priest Who Cried Out in Pain
15-16 Now that we have--Jesus, this great High Priest with ready access to God--let's not let it slip through our fingers. We don't have a priest who is out of touch with our reality. He's been through weakness and testing, experienced it all--all but the sin. So let's walk right up to him and get what he is so ready to give. Take the mercy, accept the help.
Breast Cancer may suck and may be difficult, but It is all going to be OK. We have each other. We have a loving Father. A compassionate Savior, who truly gets it. A comforting Holy Spirit.
