It has been a great day. Truly a day of rest. We started with church, lunch and then a restful afternoon complete with coffee from a friend.
I ran into a friend of a friend this morning on the way into church and of course the subject came up. As this friend shared that he would be praying for me I began to think should I have said anything? When is it appropriate and when should I keep it to myself? The Lord spoke to me in church and answered my thoughts, “don’t be freakish walking up to every stranger telling them or wear large obnoxious buttons that say ‘I have cancer’ “. Then He whispered, “I’ve given you a voice and I want you to use it for Me”. This is all new to me and as I navigate these unchartered waters I lean completely on our Father. So, I will share with those who will join our army to pray and continue to use this story to tell His story. This friend this morning, promised to join us so I rest assured that God is enlisting many to enlarge our army of prayer warriors. He will have the victory.
Thru this week I have watched friendship transform to family. I have watched strangers gather with heavy hearts to pray healing over me. I have watched a friend and a mom interrupt their lives to be by my side for doctors appointments and tests. I have watched as friends far and near have prayed, emailed and sent encouraging messages continuously. You all have been Jesus in the flesh for me this week. I applaud all of you for being available for the Father to use in my time of need. I know it’s overwhelming, sad and uncomprehendable but through it all you have been a tremendous support. I know there will come a time when I will be calling on many of you to help with the day to day stuff, please know that will be the hardest part of all of this. The doctors have told me not to try to be Superwoman, so here’s the deal I can’t be Superwoman so I will need a few Superheroes.
The greatest superhero of all has already equipped us all with all that we need to conquer this battle.
“That’s right because I, your God , have a firm grip on you and I’m not letting go. I’m telling you, don’t panic. I’m right here to help you.” – Isaiah 41:13
