My Lord and my God, you have brought me through so many trials and I know that You are with me still today. Thank you Jesus for Your love that never fails. You have kept Your promise to never leave me nor forsake me and I feel Your presence ever close every day. Please forgive me of my sins and have mercy upon my soul. By Your grace, renew in me the strength to continue to live for You and to witness to others, what an Awesome God You are. Without Your mercy and grace I would not still be here today. Even in the midst of the peace in my heart that comes only from You, I mourned the sudden death of my husband April 2017. As he lay on his deathbed, I prayed for a miracle for his healing. Instead, You gave me and my family another miracle. My husband became lucid for a few hours, recognizing we were there, and giving us time to tell him how much we loved him…a gift I will never forget. He opened his eyes, looked at me, and I knew he was with me. I cried tears of joy as I witnessed the gift of Your miracle.
Four months after his death, I was admitted to the hospital on August 9, 2017, I did not return home until October 10th since I had been in the hospital twice and in three different rehab facilities. I struggled as my mourning had to be put on hold just four months after my husband’s death. On August 10th, I underwent emergency surgery and was found to have stage IV colon cancer which had spread to my liver. After being informed by my Oncologist about alternative treatment, through much prayer and Your guidance, I began receiving Immunotherapy. As You worked through the Immunotherapy and guided my Oncologist, one of the two lesions on my liver has resolved, the other has decreased in size. The last CT Scan results were mixed. There is a new spot, unidentified, on the same lobe where the lesion has decreased in size.
I come to you with all the faith and trust that You have instilled in me, asking that in Your will, You will place Your healing hands upon me and grant that I may have more time to serve you here. With each new day, I feel your presence as I continue on this journey. I know, my Lord, that through you all things are possible. I can never deserve your mercy and grace, but through your love, you give it anyway. I don’t know what my future holds, but I do know that you hold my future in Your hands.
I have witnessed your miracles and I know that it is within Your Power to heal. I trust you Lord with all of my being. I accept Your will for my life that you have given me. Thank you Jesus for all that You are and all that You do. May I be a vehicle to spread Your love and the Good News of Jesus Christ to others, My Lord and my God in whose name I pray and give the glory and praise always. Amen.
