So lately I have had this scary situation come up. Being diagnosed with Endometrial Cancer and having gone through surgery has been life altering to say the least. My emotions have been all over the place. The questions that have gone over and over in my mind are many. What will the outcome be? Who will I be when this is over- I mean, will I still be me? What will happen to me? Will I survive?

I’m sure there are many who, like me, have had changes come into there lives. I mean let’s face it, we’re not getting any younger and things are bound to happen. I thought the hardest thing I would go through was loosing my mother. I certainly never thought there would be anything that could compare with the pain and loneliness I felt. I have to admit, this ranks right up there. It’s hard getting older and going through life’s changes! Family dynamics change, your health changes , your job status changes, children grow up and move on, and the list is endless.

So why am I telling you all this today?

Well, I’ve come to realize that it’s not what you go through so much that matters, it’s how you go through it. What are you relying on? Who are you looking to for answers? Where does your trust lie? In your self? A spouse? A child? A friend? A Doctor?

My husband Michael has been amazing through all of this. He has stayed by my side and has taking amazing care of me. I am so grateful to God for blessing me with a man who sticks with me when the going is tough and he has been tremendous, I mean really? Can’t lift, can’t do dishes, can’t do laundry, can’t work can’t do anything for 6-8 weeks? He is amazing! Thank you Jesus. And with that being said, I can’t leave out all the amazing love and support my family and friends have shown me either. My wonderful sister Terri and my Dad who came and stayed with us for a week, and of course her amazing husband Vinny, for being ok with that… My awesome friends Linda and Jenny made us delicious meals and brought them to us the night of my surgery.. Scott and Carie made us delicious Banana Bread and and sent flowers…  Kellys been in and out checking on me and took me to her salon and washed my hair.. My sister Cathy and brother Frank have been checking on me daily by phone.. Marissa making sure all went well with my surgery.. I am so grateful to all of you and the kindness and love you have shown Michael and Me…And even though my husband, family and friends have been there for me, how do I handle all the questions and feelings running through my heart?

This is still a work in progress but today, I have been reminded that God keeps His promises. I’m not alone. I don’t have to be afraid. He is with me. Life changes. Nothing remains the same- But GOD! He never changes. He says I AM GOD I change not. You can count on Him. He will Never leave you nor forsake you- He will be with you forever.  God’s love doesn’t fail. He cares about YOU! God says, ” He will keep you in perfect peace whos mind is fixed on Him.” Isaiah 26:3. Fix your mind on Jesus. He loves YOU. 

Romans 8:39

Romans 8:39 says, in my words, NOTHING can separate me from the Love of God. Not death. Not life. Not angels. Not demons. Not an operation or a fear of it/or the outcome. Not financial fears. Not loneliness/or really missing my mom. Not my fears for today or my worries over tomorrow. Nor the powers of hell. Whether I am on the mountain top- and all is so wonderful or whether I am in the deepest pit of despair. Nothing in all creation will EVER be able to separate me from Gods love revealed in Christ Jesus my LORD.

Will You Let Him Care For You?

Maybe today, you just need to be encouraged and reminded the God Loves you and that you matter to Him. Let Him carry you. Let Him take care of you and rest in the knowledge that He’s got this. Nothing is too hard for Him, No prayer too hard to answer- no need to great for Him to supply, no passion too strong for Him to bring under control, no temptation too powerful for Him to deliver you from, no extreme suffering or unhappiness too deep for Him to rescue or remove.

The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27:1

What If?

Maybe you don’t personally know Him. Why not ask Him to make himself known to you today. You won’t regret it. Jesus is the greatest friend you’ll ever have.

Thanks for letting me share.

May Almighty God bless you always as you trust in Him
