Jude 1:24 NIV To him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy
Well, I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus from writing since my breast cancer diagnosis. I can honestly say that the past few months have been a heck of a roller coaster ride. I still remember the day clearly (04/22/2015) that I received the news. Although I cried and boo-hoo’d, I can’t say that the news was a complete surprise.
Women in my family have been known to live well into their 90s. I can remember growing up in a five generation family when I was a little girl. When I called “mama,” I would have about 7 loving faces looking in my direction to address my needs. Although the scope of my family has changed significantly, I can honestly say that I want a long, well-lived life. I prayed to God for longevity and I whole-heartedly believe that my early diagnosis with bc is an avenue that had to be traveled in order for me to get to that longevity destination. I’m so thankful that God knows my name, he knows the number of hairs on my head, he knows my thoughts and concerns and most importantly he is concerned about my feelings! (Praise God!)
In the last few months, I’ve had surgery, numerous tests performed and countless doctors appointments. I’ve met some really good people along this path that have held my hand and kept me grounded. My mom and my baby girl have been absolutely amazing in all of this.
To sum it all up: I’m just a women who is overjoyed by God’s love for me and I’m just thankful that God is faithful to fulfill his word in my life.
It takes me right back to SUGA ( Simply Understand God is Able) and I truly understand now more than ever that nothing is too hard for God.
