I’ve tried to start this sentence several times and wasn’t exactly sure what to say or whether to say anything at all. I’ve asked God how much or how little I should share so publicly and I do feel like that by being open I can share a message of hope to someone in need, making the narrative not about me, but instead, about Him 🙏🏻❤️
I was recently diagnosed with breast cancer after a routine mammogram. *** PSA, schedule yours now, please!!! Shock is an understatement given my age and no family history. I’m not the first and, sadly, won’t be the last to hear this kind of news. The past few weeks have felt like riding a rollercoaster with no seatbelt on, but my Faith and strength come solely from God’s promise that He will never leave me or forsake me.
I am able to focus my eyes completely on the cross knowing that His will in all of this can and will be done. The body of Christ has become completely alive in these few short weeks with messages of prayers being lifted, humbling acts of love and pure kindness that reflect His image so beautifully to me at each turn, new friendships and a peace that is beyond my own understanding.
Friends, I ask that if you are a person of prayer, that you please include me and my family as well as my medical team in your prayer time. God has whispered to me many times “someone just spoke your name to me.” There is no greater comfort that can come in times like this than knowing that God hears our prayers.
I am blessed beyond what I deserve with a life that has allowed me the opportunity to know and love so many different people from different places and seasons of my life. If you are reading this, please know how much I love you and appreciate all that you mean to me. More than that, I hope you know how much God loves you too ❤️🙏🏻
Although the journey has only started, I rest knowing that the battle has already been won. Thank you, Jesus for your healing mercies!!! You are how I fight my battles....
