Follow Your Arrow

Often times in our lives we do not pay attention to the path that lead us to a certain point. We are human and tend to just... well, live. There is a country song that says, "Follow your arrow wherever in points." No doubt, I am. :)

I have paid attention to the path my life has been on this year, and it has lead me exactly to where I am today. Every event that has taken place in my life this year has lead me here and I could not be more grateful. I have felt God this year. His presence has been strong. I will even go as far as to say I have seen him in people that I have encountered and formed relationships with. I have no doubt of that.

Earlier this year, I wrote my testimony about how I had made changes in my life, let God have control.. and couldn't wait to see where it lead me. You can find it here. Is it true that it has lead me into unexpected territory, yes because I did not expect news like I have received so young. However, as I stated on Facebook; I have always been somewhat mentally prepared for an event such as this to take place in my life. Why? I do not really know.

I do not like that I am having to go through any of this: the pain, treatments, sickness, weakness.. it isn't fun, and my journey is just getting started; but I know He is going to see me through and He is going to be glorified through out all of this. He is with me every step because He already knew we were going to be on this journey. Can someone say Amen?

Friends, I am confident that everything is going to be okay. I have trust and peace with my team of doctors that only comes from God. I should not be so "okay" with having cancer. I should be saying this isn't happening to me, why me right at the holidays? I don't deserve this. I should be angry. I should be hurting. Once again, I am not. Why? Because, He came before me on this journey and He is with me now.

I have cancer. So what. I have a life to keep living.

Love and Hugs

P.S. Will post a medical update tomorrow.

  1. Wow! I didn't realize you wrote so often! Beautifully written and inspiring! You are a great example of the Lord and because of your level of faith, I think it has helped you be "okay" with everything. It will carry you through this with much more peace and fight than you can imagine. That along with the many many prayers we are sending your way! You can do all things through Christ, who strengthens you. Philippians 4:13.

    Lots of love!

    1. Thank you so much! Before all this I didn't write too much. I just wrote when I felt I had something worth sharing. I love to write and I am glad this journey has given me a way to be more consistent in my writing. I have also found it is great way to share my faith. :)

      Looking forward to seeing you soon!

      Lots of love!

      P.S.: I need to follow your blog!!
