Thanks for all the birthday wishes and for your prayers for my treatment today. Because the last one almost killed me I have been a little anxious about this morning. However, I woke up with a heart full of Godâs love for me and the belief that He still has plans for me.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
So, forgive me if I offend you, but I am going out this morning to kick some chemo ass. It may take me down a little, but it is getting me well.
As someone who is on the journey of continually walking through my own brokenness (not always by my choice), I still feel Godâs calling to walk alongside others who have found life to be challenging. I still believe in the âGod of Second Chancesâ and I still believe that it is in our pain that we find new life.
So, if you are struggling like me, do not lose hope. Donât resist your brokenness. Go with it and find the man or woman that is underneath the pain. I believe you will find the truth underneath all of your self protective strategies and when you are stripped of all the masks that you hide behind, you will find the truth that makes you free.
In the Barnabas Journey we have an exercise where we claim some of the gifts or the truth about who we are because of the grace of God. I am starting today with this gift of truth about who I am in âMy Fathers Eyes.â
By The Grace of God,
I Am A Special, Worthy and Complete Woman,
Who Needs Godâs Help
Please forgive me for not personally answering emails right now. I read every one of your words of encouragement and they provide great comfort. However, I am low on energy and am finding it hard to stay caught up. So, here is one big thank you coming your way.
