Following my recent announcement, I want people to understand how I am feeling. I am a very spiritual person. I enjoy going to church and singing in the choir but my inner self and relationship with God are very important to me. So let me tell you all how I am really feeling.
The other day, I was talking with close friends about my diagnosis and my life. I feel, like most people, I have been through some trials and tribulations. I’ve had some heartaches and pains. But, you know what? I am optimistic and confident because of my faith in God.
Whether you believe in God, the universe, whoever, please understand that I am confident that the journey I am going through with having cancer is God setting me up for greater! I have worked hard over the years, have had triumphs and trials, and I know that through it all, my life is for greater. My story is for understanding and encouragement. No, I don’t always do things right but everything I have been through and will go through is a lesson and blessing for greater. I have goals and tasks to complete, a life to live, and my journey is going to make it all worth telling.
My journey is just starting and I don’t know fully what’s in store but I feel good knowing that I have God and He has provided me with the support system I have.
In the words of a song I hold dear to my heart and used to lead in the choir, “Trouble in my way, I have to cry sometimes. So much trouble, trouble in my way. I lay awake at night but that’s alright. I know that my Jesus will fix it, after while.”
