I awakened this morning not my usual self. I have an appointment with a radiologist who will more than likely tell me I am about to start radiation for cancer. This isidious thing entered my body several years ago and has stayed too long at my party. At times I have been completely cancer free, then like a thief in the night it creeps back into my body, wreaking havac on the remaining good cells in my body and turning them bad.
I am tired this morning. I don't want to do this. I don't want to go through all this again. I just want to be free. I have been a fighter for three years now, and the enemy is hitting back harder and harder like the Joe Frazier of diseases. Jesus, help me. Just give me the strength to win this round. I cannot do this alone. You must fight with me.
The road of life is long with many winding turns. I have chosen the wrong way many times.
The rest of my journey may not be easy and I may have to suffer, but my suffering will be nothing compared to yours. You suffered so I might be forgiven and when my time in this world is over, there will be no more pain or heartache for me. I will one day stand with you in heaven and my body and spirit will be whole again.
Jesus walk the rest of this journey with me. Show me the paths to follow when I reach a turning point, for I am afraid I am at a breaking point.
Lynn in reading this prayer you can see your love, faith and trust in the Lord. Thank you for sharing that encouragement with us. That no matter what journey we are on in our lives the Lord walks beside us. To allow us to take comfort in the fact that when our own strength is failing we can always draw upon the strength of the Lord. He will renew and refresh us so that we can carry on.
When I saw the title of your article it reminded me of this song. I hope it comforts you. I hope this link works here. Copy and paste it in your browser and it will take you to the song.
I suffer from a disease that causes severe pain and debilitating weakness and fatigue, so I have an idea of what your journey must be like. So glad we have God to walk through this with us, and have the assurance of knowing He will bring glory out of even the worst situations. Praying your appointment went as well as it could.
Praying for you Lynn. Just one thing to help you; Jesus took stripes on his back for your healing. Healing belongs to you and every child of God. Jesus said that healing is the childrens bread. Take your healing and don't let go of it and you WILL see your healing manifest. God bless you. I care.
