It is the night before I start chemo. I sit with mixed emotions. I’m anxious, nervous and a little scared. Not of the treatment but of what could happen. I know without a doubt this is where I’m supposed to be for this season. God has provided in abundance for this season.
God has shown himself to me in many ways. I never knew all the people I would come in touch with over the past couple years that would play such an important role in the next season. Friends of friends that have just the resources I need. Every thing from the Susan G. Komen Foundation to dieticians for the Cancer Center. Lord, you are so good to me, I will praise you with all that is within me. Yes, He has me in Dallas for “such a time as this”
We don’t know what to expect over the next few days. If I am unable to write, don’t worry, I have enlisted a ghost writer to keep you well informed. She is quite talented so I must be careful that she doesn’t take over my job here.
Well, as I close I want to leave you with something that was sitting in my doctor’s office this afternoon:
What Cancer Cannot Do
Cancer is so limited ~~
It cannot cripple love.
It cannot shatter hope.
It cannot corrode faith.
It cannot destroy peace.
It cannot kill friendship.
It cannot suppress memories.
It cannot silence courage.
It cannot invade the soul.
It cannot steal eternal life.
It cannot conquer the spirit.
‘ For we are God’s workmanship created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.’ – Ephesians 2:10
‘Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagin, according to his power that is at work within us.’ – Ephesians 3:20
(For those who have asked about the verses, these have been directly from my quiet time along the journey. Without a doubt God is speaking.)
