It’s interesting that I planned to write about contentment this week. I usually post on Thursdays, but I’ve had difficulty deciding what to write now that my contentment is being tested.
Last Thursday I suddenly started down the road to being diagnosed with breast cancer.
Monday I will have a biopsy, and by the end of the week, I will know for sure.
My husband is a physician. After reading all my reports, his diagnosis is – without God
performing a miracle, I have breast cancer.
What I would write without the above
I planned to tell you that the Lord has blessed me so abundantly that I will burst if he blesses me anymore.
Sure, there are things I wish were different, but overall I can’t and won’t complain.
I resisted the urge to ask “Why me?” and I’ve said, “Why not me?”
It reminded me of this verse:
But he said to her, “You speak as one of the foolish women would speak. Shall we receive good from God, and shall we not receive evil?” all this Job did not sin with his lips. Job 2:10 ESV
No, I don’t have it all together
I know I’m saved and will spend eternity with my Lord and Savior. I’m not afraid to die.
But leaving my family is something I don’t want to do! My heart is to watch them grow, have babies. Loving on my newest granddaughter is my favorite thing to do. Dan’s retiring and I want to spend this time with him.
I believe in miracles. Would you join with me in praying for one?
Being a good patient is not one of my strong points. I have a very low threshold for pain and I don’t like to be needy. So I will also need a lot of grace and courage.
