Faith Over Adversity
To be honest lately, I have been feeling like giving up, BUT GOD!
Yesterday I was reminded that I am loved and not alone. You see I have Stage 2 Breast Cancer and Chemotherapy is “trying” to kick my butt!
As I cried out to God to have mercy on me and give me relief from this pain, I thought he had forsaken me because I couldn’t hear or feel him like I normally would. You see I couldn’t feel God the normal way I have experienced him before because this is not “my” normal experience.
So God had to show up in news ways to let me know how he can use anyone or anything to encourage me, and that I am indeed loved and most definitely not alone.
I have been receiving encouraging phone calls, text messages and social media posts from people who in that moment didn’t know I was having a really bad couple of days. They were either telling me how much I encouraged them and inspired them. Some told me that I was on their mind and wanted to know what I needed. Others prayed with me and for me. It was in that moment that I truly realized the power of witnessing God moving mountains, Heaven and Earth on my behalf.
You see I learned a long time ago that a mustard seed of Faith could indeed move mountains, but to see it manifest in such a great way, was such a blessing.
“Matthew 17:20 NLT — “You don’t have enough faith,” Jesus told them. “I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.” (New Living Translation)
God reminded me of my past experiences where I wanted to give up and he wouldn’t let me. SO CANCER doesn’t have anything on my God or my faith. Yes, my Faith will be tested and each time Faith will win! Because my GOD is GREATER THAN ANY BATTLE I FACE!!! With every moment of this experience I am reminded that my life has been called to be a living testimony. And everything that I go through is not for me alone, but to help others on whatever their healing journey looks like.
I want to encourage you to not give up! You may be facing one the hardest battles of your Life, but trust and believe you will get through to the other side and you will be stronger and GREATER for it.
Here are 3 things I learned that may help you to keep the Faith when Faced with Adversities:
1.) Allow others to help you
2.) Don’t feel embarrassed or weak for needing help
3.) This test will be a testimony that you can use to encourage others
