Today I had an X-ray and MRI to check a suspicious spot on my right hip from my PET scan. My oncologist said he wasn’t too concerned (and he doesn’t mince words or sugarcoat) but wanted to be thorough.
As I was laying in the MRI for a second set of images, I was asking God why….why more tests? Romans 12:1 came to mind (also my MIL’s verse of the day today on her cancer journey),
“Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.”
Jesus sacrificed it ALL for me…why do I question God in this and not want to make sacrifices on my end? Peace just washed over me as I said, “Ok God, I hear you and I give these questions to you.”
As I was driving away from the hospital, the song “Stronger” by Mandisa came on the radio and it was like I was hearing it for the first time. I felt that God was ONCE AGAIN assuring me that I am going to come out of this on the other side STRONGER than ever. Stronger in my faith, in my physical body, in my relationships, emotionally, and so much more. I encourage to you take a listen 🙂
