So in chemo again today, & once again I am amazed at just how God is using all of this for His glory! In the middle ground I find myself in, surrounded by a situation not of my creation or His, He gently reminds me that I am not alone and I can have a wonderful impact on those around me.
I have once again met a lovely couple, and as usual the person sat next to me has the same diagnosis as me. This has happened so many times to me, that it almost becomes funny. It’s no coincidence that I am sat next to someone who is in the same boat as me.
It has made me think about community.
It can be a lonely place that only a select group understand the ins and outs of it all. That causes isolation and loneliness. But what if we looked at those negative feelings and asked them to leave. What would happen if we approach that select group with the intentions to add these people into our story!
Imagine the impact we could have if we were open, honest and shared our story with others, we could maybe bring light into so many lives. How exciting that would be and what a privilege!
I was led in my book to the story of David, and how out of his situation he realised that he had to come back to God in repentance.
God is still working. God still has a plan. God was still moulding and shaping David for a wonderful purpose – not just for him but to help others.
God didn’t give me cancer, nor did my life choices cause it. But while I am in this middle ground awaiting a miracle I love that I can see His hand on my life. He is preparing me for my miracle and what a privilege it is to speak about my story in this place.
