I can see God’s hand through everything in life. Even in breast cancer. Having breast cancer is a hard road to walk on, one that I would not wish on anyone. It’s full of ups and downs, times of fear and dread, times of pain, and times of absolute relief. It’s also been a time where I have seen God’s hand taking care of me every step of the way. In Hebrews 13:5, God states, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Though this trial I have always been able to see His power and goodness.
As I was speaking to God this week about the impending dread I had concerning an upcoming doctors appointment, I told Him that I wanted to hear his voice, that I didn’t like the silence. Shortly afterwards He said to me, “I will heal you. I have great and wonderful things planned for you.” My human doubt sprang forth from the depths of my soul as I said, “Are you sure God? Was that just me speaking, or was it you? I know you can heal me, but is it your will to heal me?”
As the days progressed I could see His faithfulness shinning through as friends sent up prayers of healing and comfort, and prayers of peace for my weary soul. As I went to the doctor’s appointment, uncertainty started to creep in and I cried out to the Lord with my hands raised for His help. The nurse called us back to the room and told me what my tumor marker counts where, the numbers that I had been dreading……. I saw God’s power move in that room, and in those test results….. the tumor marker count was 49, dropping 11 points, from last months count of 60. Tears started to flow and I thanked God for His goodness and faithfulness. There is so much of God’s wonder and goodness that we can see if we just open our eyes in faith and belief. I do not know what my future holds, but I do know who holds my future…..God…… and that’s all I need to know.
