Four years ago this Saturday, I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Cancer. Every year around this time, my mind goes back to that sickening place of facing the fact that I might die from a disease that was running violently throughout my body. There are so many stories I could share with you about my cancer journey, but today I want to focus on one story that shows God’s faithfulness and how He never leaves us alone.
On May 11, 2009 when the doctors unexpectedly rushed me in for an emergency CAT scan, I’ll never forget the frightening and intense feelings of helplessness. I immediately cried to God and begged Him to say something to me in that moment. “God, I need to hear you now, please say anything!” He responded instantly with, “I endured the nails.” That was it. Nothing else. My first response was, “Lord I have no idea what you want me to do with this” and then within my next breath I took a deep sigh of relief and said, “ok God, no matter what I’m getting ready to face, life, death, pain, suffering, I’m going to be fine because you’ve already done it all.” I suddenly felt strong and relieved yet still trembling with shock.
Exoduse 33:14 explains perfectly the reassurance I felt after my encounter with God that day.
“My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”
I knew that no matter what hell I was getting ready to go through, I would never be alone and that is what provided me with unimaginable peace and rest for my soul throughout my battle with cancer.
Friends, I want to reassure you today that you are never alone. No matter how isolated you may feel because of the trials you are going through, the Holy Spirit, the God of the universe is with you every step of the way. Sometimes I go back and watch my miracle video to remind me how far God has taken me. Will you take a moment to watch it today and see what God is speaking to you?
