Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. 2 Corinthians 12:8-10
Their are difficult times that we all go through and we wish that we didn’t have to and right now is one of them. As many of you know that my daughter went through surgery last week to have a tumor that was cancer removed. And now since she has been home a few days and watch her going through so much pain, it has crush my spirit. I have tried to not cry in front of her as I see what she has been enduring the serve pain and her emotions. I just wish that God would allow me to have gone through all of this and not my child, and yet I do know that is truly impossible. In a way I can understand how God must have felt as He watch His only Son crucified and died on a cross to save all of mankind and yet Jesus did just that. I remember so clear a few years ago after the first diagnosis of Lupus was and after I yelled at God trying to understand it all, I heard in my heart then why my Son in your place on Calvary, and that I knew God understands our pain and all our struggles even as parents.
I am a true believer in pray, it is as natural as the air we breathe. So I am asking all the pray warriors to pray for Victoria, asking our Lord to help with her pain and emotions. And through all of this I ask of this: that God somehow use me to glorified His kingdom as I walk this difficult journey with my daughter.
