Life With Cancer

Hope you caught the title to my new blog page. Yes, I am trying to lure you in to read my crazy thoughts as I journey through life with cancer. It is an amazing adventure the Lord has called me to. Not one in which I have chosen. No this is one all ready written in the history book of life. The fun part will be discovering all the hidden treasures God has in store for myself, my family and my friends. Would you pray for me as I venture into the depths of blogging my story...life with cancer?

I begin each day with a thankful heart, another day in paradise! I hope to give you a glimpse into my spiritual journey thus far. There are so many questions I have. Not sure if I will find all the answers. One thing I do know: His Word is true and I cling to it for life, hope & strength.

"Your Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path." Psalm 119:105

I feel so blessed to be counted worthy to endure this race...one that requires determination, clarity of mind and supernatural strength. My faith is strong, but there is room for growth. I am merely a servant, a meek child of God willing to go the distance to serve however He beckons. Was I surprised when the Doctor told me it was cancer? No. Was God surprised? No.

"For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11


All along He has been preparing me for such a time as this (Esther 4:14). So now the waiting begins. More tests, more blood work, more waiting. Oh yeah...patience that is a fruit of the Spirit? I will begin chemotherapy sometime in the near future (2 to 4 weeks from now). The chemo will last for 6 months, a total of 12 treatments, twice a month. It is not something I want to do. It is something I have to do. I know God has prepared me spiritually, let the battle rage on.

"I can do all things through him who give me strength." Philippians 4:13
