It’s been a little over a week since this all started. I am jarred, shaken, and feel as if I can’t muster the strength to praise the Lord.
My mom could have liver cancer, or it could be benign. It’s hard for me to hope for the best outcome. Yet, Jesus beckons me to have hope. To rejoice in Him. To rest in His Sovereignty.
Would you please pray for and with me? For my family, for my mom especially, for this whole ordeal? Please pray that I would be like that verse in Habakukk:
“Though the fig tree does not bud
and there are no grapes on the vines,
though the olive crop fails
and the fields produce no food,
though there are no sheep in the pen
and no cattle in the stalls,
yet I will rejoice in the Lord,
I will be joyful in God my Savior.”
(Habakukk 3:17-18, NIV)
I’ll keep you updated, my friends. Please lift up our family and pray for the strength to rejoice, not in the circumstances, but in our God.
Please lift our family high to You now. Help me to rejoice in You despite any dire circumstance, despite the unknown. Comfort my mom and give her Your Peace and strength. Please save us from this prospect of cancer; and if not, lead and guide us step by step through the valley of the shadow. I pray this in Your Name, Jesus.
In Your Name we pray,
Do you know Jesus?
He is our ultimate Healer, healing us of our sin problem and conquering death. Learn more about this Almighty God here.
