To all of my prayer warriors out there: I have a prayer request.
These past few months have been really hard on my family. In October, we found out that two of my very close family members have cancer. One is my cousin whom is only 15 and has been diagnosed leukemia, and the other is Nina who has breast cancer. Trying to stay positive, they caught both of them in very early stages. My cousin is at an awesome cancer hospital in NC, so I have faith that he will be healed. By the grace of God, they told Nina that she would not need chemotherapy after her surgery. Today, that changed. I got a text from my mom while at work that she would, in fact, have to take chemo and radiation to make sure it doesn’t spread any more than it already did. Also, my mother had to go into surgery today for her back. She will be in recovery and can not make it for my wisdom teeth surgery, or to be with my grandmother during this hard time.
I am not the type to put this out in the public, but I feel like God has been working on my heart lately. One thing that I have learned is that it is okay to ask for help. You can not do everything on your own. You will eventually break down and not know where to turn. So today, I am telling you guys this just to ask you to pray for my family. Strength for us all to find that light at the end of the tunnel. Hope that things will soon look up. And to give us the faith knowing that this is all apart of God’s master plan in our lives here on Earth. It’s hard to wonder how any good can come from these terrible events, but knowing that God is always there to hold your hand along the way really helps the heartache.
Today while on break at work I was just looking for scripture about strength, and I wanted to share what I found.
“My flesh and my heart my fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” Psalm 73:26
