I am still in awe of God's sweet provision, so it's possible I may ramble a bit when I tell you this story. Hang in there with me because it's very good! It's such a great picture of how God leans in to meet the most specific needs in our everyday lives.
One of my concerns about this recent journey is that I am uneducated in the area of breast cancer. I have an appointment coming up on the 19th with the surgeon and I have been feeling quite inadequate to participate in the conversation I am about to have with the doctor. Until tonight. My sweet friend Renee set me up with her mom who works at the Cancer Center here in CC as the head of the (get this) BREAST CENTER! I had the opportunity to meet with this precious woman and ask her every question imaginable. She gave me the facts, encouraged me, and then we prayed. Can I just say right here that praying for my healing in the office of the Cancer Center before I have even begun a single treatment was not quite what I had imagined for my first visit there?! Isn't God gentle? Listen to this:
"My heart is confident in you, O God; NO WONDER I can sing your praises with all my heart!" Psalm 108:1
It's absolutely true. My confidence is in Him and because of that, I am free to praise Him with all my heart.
Thank you sweet blog buddies for your prayers and precious comments. I will keep you posted as I know more but in the meantime, I will be abiding in Him!
