This week has been a rough week (physically). I’ve felt more fatigue and other symptoms. My body feels as if it has been run over by a Mack truck. I feel very run down and tired. On Monday I called the doctor to tell them about a few symptoms and side effects that they had warned could happen. Specifically, tingling and numbness in my right hand and right foot. They called me back to schedule an appointment for me to come in on Tuesday. The doctor decided he would like a brain scan. He went on to say that he’s not willing to take any chances and so he wants to eliminate the worst first. If the scan comes back clear then we’ll proceed to a neurologist. This has been a possibility from the beginning with the chemo that I am taking.
- Please pray on Thursday as I am scheduled for a brain scan at 3:00
In addition, this Friday is the extra cocktail hour, “jenn’s juice” deluxe. It takes longer and it usually delivers a little extra punch on the days following. I am finding that the further I get into treatment the worst “hangover”. I continue to pray that God would give me the stamina to finish strong. The Lord continues to show me his strength as I walk through this. I will admit these days are harder than the beginning. However, I will not give up.
Let Me fill you with my Love, Joy and Peace. These are Glory-gifts, flowing from my living Presence.Though you are an earthen vessel, I designed you to be filled heavenly contents. Your weakness is not a deterrent to being filled with My Spirit; on the contrary, it provides an opportunity for My Power to shine forth more brightly.
As you go through this day, trust Me to provide the strength that you need moment by moment. Don’t waste energy wondering whether you are adequate for today’s journey. My Spirit within you is more than sufficient to handle whatever this day may bring. That is the basis for your confidence! In quietness (spending time alone with Me) and confident trust (relying on My sufficiency) is your strength.
