For the first few weeks after my diagnosis, every time I woke up, I was sick to my stomach. It was like satan couldn’t get a foothold during the day so he attacked while I was sleeping and before I could even open my eyes to get in God’s Word. I asked God for peace and protection while I sleep and the past few nights/mornings, I’ve been waking up with worship songs and bible verses on repeat in my head! This morning it was the song “You Are” by Colton Dixon.
I can honestly say I have never seen or heard God so clearly and often in my life. It’s not that he wasn’t there before. Oh no…he has been there for 30 years waiting oh so patiently for ME to seek him with ALL my heart! He has been talking and showing me his love but I’ve been too BUSY with life to be still and TRULY listen, to have conversation with him, to have a close relationship with him. Cancer has changed my life in the most amazing and wonderful way. Each day is a gift and I am filled with Joy and Peace that only God could give me!
Romans 5:13 “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” <<<<This is real to me, I’m living and breathing this verse!!!
I pray that everyone who reads this will know this same peace and joy, that you all will know that God loves you FIERCELY and wants to bless you and be real to you and loves you too! He is waiting for you…will you let him in? Will you listen to his voice? Will you talk to him? You can talk to him regardless of your relationship status with him. He Will show up for you.
