The original book (which this blog is based on), “The Pieces” is from journals, scraps of paper, various writing I have done inspired by my faith and what God has taught me. Here are a few unpublished revelations.
“The Pieces,” my story, Your words. Inspiration & truth. Let’s save the world with You!
There was a time during my chemo journey that I anticipated only three treatments. I was very disappointed to learn there would be a total of six. God reminded me that He is the great Protector and Healer, that I am never alone. (I felt very lonely during this time).
The tumor, surgery, recovery, chemotherapy, healing from incisions, chemo brain, infections, neuropathy, the list goes on, I thought I would possibly die from one of these. But here I am; still. My Savior never left, encouraging me with the words of kind people, doctors, cards & visits.
Jesus, thank you for being present. Forgive my anger and frustration The enemy is hard at work, trying to get me back. But he doesn’t know how coated in the armor of God I am, that my soul is filled with light, joy and grace. Genesis 3:1-8 I too, hid from God while the pieces of evil were coming together. It is not MY battle to win, it is Yours. You are already there. I know this lesson, but have chosen not to see. Choosing to skip church or several mornings of devotions, gives the devil an inch. Keep me close Lord, remind me what being lax does to the human spirit.
I am covered by the Armor of God:
- Belt of truth
- Helmet of salvation
- Towering shield of faith
- Mighty sword of the spirit
- The breastplate of righteousness
I feel peace in my spirit. Each day is a gift. So much came from cancer, the times I felt lonely, Jesus drew closer.
