Striving to Live a Life of Adventure, Excellence, and Faith.

Prayers for My Sweet Mom........

As you read this, I am most likely in a hospital waiting room.  I am waiting for my mom's surgery to be completed and ready to face the next stage in this no fun, horrible scenario our family finds ourselves in.  You see, a few weeks ago, the "C" word entered our family like a thief in the night.   We keep saying that "we are okay," and "God's in control", just as someone would say if personal processions were taken from them when they were not home, but the truth is that our security has been a little shaken, and I am so ready to wake up from this awful dream. 

Cancer is honestly something that never crossed my mind of having to deal with.  Parents are supposed to live until they are old and feeble, and then they pass on in their sleep.  Well, that's at least the lives my grandparents had.  However, as news of mom's diagnosis was shared with me, the idea was just a little too much to bare.  It was hard to think of all that was right around the corner, and to be honest it just added to the crappiness this year has brought.   I spent a night sulking and crying, and just getting all the emotions out; however, the next morning the Lord reminded me of one of my favorite verses:

"Don't panic. I'm with you. There's no need to fear for I'm your God. I'll give you strength. I'll help you. I'll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you."  (Is 41:10 Message)

This was a verse I memorized several years ago when I am dealing with some paralyzing fear in my life.  And, its this verse that brought so much victory and freedom into my life.  

It was in that moment, that the Lord spoke to me and let me know that He had everything in control.  I have to trust Him.  And, to be very honest I do. 

My Prayers This Morning 
For Healing from the disease.
For a Successful Surgery.
For Strength for her body to withstand the surgery. 
For Healing and Recovery.
For Peace for my mom & our family.

So this morning, as I sit in a hospital battling anxious thoughts, I know that my Savior is working for us not against us, and I know that through these circumstances in my mom's life that He Will Receive the Glory.  

Have a blessed Wednesday.
