When Life Throws You Lemons...

WOW I cannot believe it has been so long since I posted here.  It has been somewhat of a very stressful time in our household.  But we are taking it all in stride.


A while ago I started having some abnormal "woman" cycles.  I was just assuming it was because I was approaching "that" age.  Well I finally bit the bullet and went to my GYN.  He said I was not quite there age-wise for that.  A while ago I had an ultrasound that showed something a bit off.  So my doctor set me up to have a biopsy on my ovary, cervix and uterine wall.  We had the conversation that no one wants to have with their doctor.  The dreaded cancer discussion. It is going to take 2 weeks for the results to come in.  I am really trying to stay positive.  It is not easy!!

My doctor is also very cautious because my sister had ovarian cancer at an early age.


God cares about me no matter what is going on.  He will never leave me.  It is because of that I can breathe a little easier during this.  I have been meditating on many passages of Scripture.  One being Psalm 23.  Honestly many of the Psalms are SO comforting to me.  I have started a journal on what the Bible says on comfort. 

 
"The LORD is my light and my salvation;
Whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the strength of my life;
Of whom shall I be afraid?"
Psalm 27:1
 
 
When I read this verse I often say whom or what.  There is nothing I should be afraid of.  God already knows the outcome of this.  Nothing is going to change if I spend my time worrying about what is or what will be.
 
So if you think about it would you please say a prayer or two for us?  It is going to be a long two weeks until we know one way or another.  I know I'm going to have good days and bad ones.

Yes, I will be praying Jen. You are going to the right place for comfort! I love the Psalms too. I am so sorry you are having this trial, but blessed to hear He is holding you up.
