Awake To the Moments

Seems lately I feel like I've spent a lot of time wishing parts of my life back.  I miss my child hood days when I can't remember what I was even worried about....when my biggest fear was who was I gonna sit next to at lunch time or if the cute boy at school like me.  Today seems so far from the simple days of my childhood.......I feel like the second I'm forgettin about one problem I'm thinking about another....wondering what life holds for me. I've had some lonely moments her recently and one of my bestest friends recently told me....your trying to do it all by yourself....you've got to give it to God.  I know we all feel alone and this is definitely not a pity party for Sarah post because I know we all feel alone sometimes...no matter what your going through.  I came upon this video today and read this verse in my devotions last night.....hope u enjoy :)
Matthew 6:34
"So don't worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today's trouble is enough for today"

There is nothing worse than being in those moments where you realize you can't go back in life to what we think are safe and better days, and yet what lies ahead . . . . well, we just don't know what's there, if anything at all!!!! It's gut wrenching. And it leaves what feels like a big empty hole in the middle of what you are struggling so hard to call life.
I know how your mind is racing, trying so hard to find yourself, to find something to call normal, and to find a purpose in it all. If only God would send us a map with the the beginning, the middle, and the end all marked out and tell us what our mission is. I don't always like the idea that sometimes we can only get the full picture and reason for stuff when we look at it all through the rear view mirror. It's then we understand why there are bends in the road, and there were bridges that carried us over the rivers, and guard rails when the edges were too steep and unsafe. I can only tell you as one who is a little ahead of you on this journey ---- He is there! He is carrying you! And when the time is right, you will see that He has changed you and that now you look just a little more like Him! Don't rush the process, but look at all the little moments He gives you and thank Him for what is in those moments. Even your teardrops have blessings in them. SOmeday, you will see, my dear. You will see!!!!

I am new to your blog so I read through just about every post. I admire and respect you. You have great courage and your trust in the Lord is awe inspiring.

I have never had any kind of cancer, let alone breast cancer so I cannot speak to how you feel. I would do it injustice. Nonetheless I have had friends over the years who have had cancer, colon, breast, pancreatic, microcell carcinoma (some odd cancer, and peoples will to live, to survive, their faith in our good Lord is always encouraging and inspiring.

I have learned a lot about different types of cancers over the years and now I follow some blogs where women are dealing with breast cancer, including the Bonds, which is where I noted you followed also, or how I found out about you.

It seems all my life I have managed to be around and know people with cancer. Maybe it is like that for a lot of us, I do not know. But for me it has lead me to believe the good Lord is behind this so that I can minister his hope, love, compassion, and the good new - the gospel.

The Bible says that by Jesus's stripes we were healed. That is past tense. We were healed. So all we must do now is received our healing - our gift - from the great physician. Jesus loves us all and wants all of us to walk in his glory by faith.

We all fall short, and I am no better than anyone, I have fallen short and been ashamed of myself so many times. But I know the good Lord is faithful to forgive to those who repent and believe on the Lord Jesus.

Jesus loves you and he has healed you. Please when you have those low moments, and you will have days of doubt, fear (though the good Lord did not give us a spirit of fear) He knows we are human and we will have all these emotions. Jesus when he was the God/Man had experienced all of these emotions that is why he understands us, loves us, saved us from the devourer, the devil - who only comes to kill, steal, and destroy.

Do not let the devil steal your joy in the Lord and do not let the devil steal your healing, which is your right according to the Word of God.

If you ever need to talk, I am sure you have loads of friends at home, school, on this blog, but I am here. You can e-mail me at LaylaelizabethGonzalez0220@aco.anthem.edu

God bless you! xoxo

I have just received bad news from a good friend who lives on the other side of the world that she is diagnosed with breast cancer. I was researching about the disease when I came across your blog. What a marvellous testimony to God the way you choose to glorify Him! I am sure you are a source of inspiration to many.

I would be grateful if you could advice me on how to comfort my friend. Sometimes you just don't know what to say.
