On January 26, 2017 I was diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer. The details of how it was discovered are in my first journal entry but suffice it to say, the Lord has had His hand in this since the very beginning. I don’t ask “why” I have cancer or believe for a minute that this is “unfair”. I am a daughter of the King and His plan for my life is perfect - even if it includes cancer. God makes no mistakes and although WE were surprised by this diagnosis, HE was not. For many years I have prayed and asked God to help me love Him more, trust Him more, and proclaim His name more boldly to others since I’m definitely lacking in those areas. In many ways I believe this cancer is an answer to those prayers. I can’t put my trust in doctors, or treatments, or anything else on this planet since none of them are certain, or unchanging, or know the future. But God is ALL of those things, PLUS He loves me! He is the sovereign Lord who created heaven, and earth, and ME, and He already knows exactly how this chapter of my life is going to end. So I choose to put my faith in Him and His plan, all the while hoping to grow in my love and trust of Him as He walks me and my family through this great trial. Our family verse is Proverbs 3:5-6 and that is what I am clinging to: "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight". Please join me in my journey and see all the great things that the Lord will do!
