Bless You Cancer (6)

Still home this morning. Feeling a bit stronger. Hope to make it in to the office after lunch.

This entry from my journal of 8.13.05 reminds me how much prayer can be a part of a season of suffering in a believer’s life.

One day closer. Vomited twice. Mucous is constant. Today I get my final tumor bed radiation treatment. Now things will be able to heal. After this, three neck treatments and I am done. I just want it to be over. Strengthen me, Lord. It has been so long since I have felt well. May this season come to a close soon.

It felt like I “rowed” on the stormy sea forever. But Jesus did get into the boat and take me to the other side. I’m grateful.

  1. I just happened to hop over to your blog today and saw that you've not been feeling well this week. Had I known before I would have brought you some of my get well soup (which Daniel and I just about finished at lunch today). Praying now that you'll feel better soon.

  2. Playing catch-up with your blog after being out of the loop for a while. I just read all the 'Bless You Cancer' posts. Your deep suffering and your response to it is inspiring to us all. Thank you!

  3. I appreciate you allowing us a glimpse into some of your journal entries. It strengthens my faith to know that a man of God was tried by fire and came forth as gold. Praise be to Almighty God! May He give you exceptional health and length of days.
