I’ve learned over the past 4.5 months, that what God needs from us, when we are down and out, is to draw closer to Him, than our friends. He wants ALL of us, He wants our focus on Him, so we can learn how beneficial it is, to know our Savior. To trust that He has our back, that we can lean on him during the incredibly tough times.
I’ve been dealing with ovarian cancer since late August. I’ve had body parts removed, including a big tumor, I’ve experienced chemotherapy; and it’s AWFUL. I’m starting to have more good than bad days, but through it all; even a few pity parties, I’ve been in very close contact with Jesus, I’ve never looked forward, only today, believing that He is with me every step of the way, through every decision that was made, to every time I curled up in a ball and wanted to die from pain. It was then, He was with me the most, I literally felt the spirit of God, wrapping me up in His love and compassion. And for that, I will always be grateful.
What has been difficult for you lately? Are you complaining to your friends or expecting them to be your “soft place to land?” They cannot ever be that, because your Heavenly Father is the only one with those powers.
