My mom was recently diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. It is one of the not so normal kinds - and can go very easily undetected. By the time they found it, it has spread to her liver, lungs, brain and bone marrow. So needless to say, a pretty tough situation. It is not curable by doctor's standards, but they are treating it. So far, she has had three aggressive treatments.
Today they are doing a full body scan to see how she is doing and how the chemo is working. My faith, of course, is in God - whom I believe still heals today. So, that is what I and so many others have been praying for...complete healing.
It is still so easy to be fearful of the results. What if the cancer is worse? What if it has stayed the same? Will they make her have radiation? So many possible "worst case" situations.
However, I felt the Lord gently remind me of the verses below:
"The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?...Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever." Heb. 13.6,8
And I realized that no matter what the results of those tests are...and how it could change the situation for the better or worse - He is remains the same faithful Father. I have come to realize that He is more than enough, no matter what the situation. I can remain content and at peace in Him.
I honestly do not know what I would do without God gently helping me and carrying me through the day. I am at a place in my life where tragedy and difficulty has hit from all sides and continues to do so. I can not and will not make it without my heavenly Father. Call me crazy or fanatic, but I believe and know with all my heart - he is MORE THAN ENOUGH!
