I Have The Scars To Prove It

Ask God…what HE wants you to do? We think sometimes we’ve got it all figured out and really we don’t even have a clue. Our agenda, our plan, our future, our kids, our house, our car. Our? Really? NONE of it belongs to us. God allows us to to manage them sure, but ultimately they ALL belong to Him!

I woke up one morning in February 1986 and went to the Dr to find out that I had Breast Cancer. I was only 24 and this was a major shock. I remember feeling so helpless one minute and then the next I was ready to face whatever….whatever was next. Fast forward a year and I had been through 5 pretty major surgeries and a whole lot pain and numerous doctor’s appointments. Every day I would wake up and thank God that He chose to let me live another day. I prayed to God but I had never asked for forgiveness and asked Christ to be my Savior. I thought I was a Christian but if I had died I didn’t know Jesus and I would not have gone to Heaven. God gave me each of those days and continued to draw me close to Him and since then my life has changed tremendously!! How often do you wake up and thank God for giving you yet another day to live?
He chose me and eventually I chose to surrender my life to Him! My life is His! I don’t know what tomorrow will bring and neither do you! We may be here today and gone tomorrow. How will you choose to live the agenda, the future, the day God has given you? What does God want you to do with your life? He has a plan for you but it ALL belongs to Him!! I am thankful that God has given me each and every morning since those days in 1986 to LIVE LIFE! I want to live it well!

I can look back now to 27 years ago and know why God allowed cancer in my life at such a young age. It was my bottom and the end of my old life and the start of a new life! God loves you! What does He want YOU to do? It all belongs to Him!!

“How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone. What you ought to say is, “If the Lord wants us to, we will live and do this or that.” (James 4:14, 15 NLT)
