The Lord gives strength to me and blesses me with peace. Psalms 29:11
So, my friend Kimberly sent this out and even though I had seen it before, I watched it again. Last night I spoke to a friend of a friend that had breast cancer 9 years ago. Michelle spoke of her still obvious battle scars from cancer, she spoke of how it changed her and how it was a blessing.
I know that cancer didn't choose me on it's own, God is in control, and He allowed it because He knows more than me, what is best for me. This guy in the video is holding a chisel and a hammer and talking about getting rid of pride and anger and such as He demostrates what God does in our lives. It takes it to a whole other level when you realize that even your body isn't your own. Of course, I knew that but cancer takes it to another level. Not only is God gonna deal with me on a spiritual level, but a very physical level too. The fact that God has me in a world and palce where chemo and knives are a part of my present and future scares me. I will be in physical and emotional pain, I will have scars and be weak, there will be tears and it will be difficult however I know even this is temporary and that God will get the glory at the end of the whole process.
Thank God for whatever he's given you, because is doing it for a reason and it is part of His divine and perfect plan.
