Hi everyone! Back in September I went to the doctor for a lump (I thought it was a clogged duct because I had drank one too many iced coffees that week... Y'all know I'm addicted 😀). The doctor sent me to get a mammogram which I thought was silly & nothing. At the end of that appointment I asked the doctor to give me her gut feeling. The next two words she said completely shocked me. She said, "I'm worried". The mammogram was on a Monday & a biopsy was scheduled for that Friday. I felt like I was watching a movie or someone else's life. Waiting was torture. Friday came, the biopsy was done, and once again we were waiting. On Tuesday the call came & cancer was confirmed. Ouch! Never in a million years what I expected, but something at that time began began ringing in my head… God is working this together for my good.
Romans 8:28 says And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. The Bible says ALL things, not just some things or good things or nice things or things that make you feel good, but ALL things including cancer. There are things in my heart & life that need to be worked on. There are rough edges & places where I need to grow. I know that everything has to come through the Lord's hands first. I really believe that even though cancer is bad, it is for my good.
We have seen great things from the Lord from the very beginning of this. We have seen His hand in every step of it. Sometimes in little reminders and sometimes in nothing short of miracles. The Lord is good. His mercy endureth to all generations. I hope that I learn what it is He has for me during this, and when it is done I want to come forth as gold.
