Needing Prayer

Dear Ones:

So I debated to share this news or not. Then I thought about the reasons why I blog. I blog because I love to write. I blog because it is therapeutic for me to get my feelings and thoughts out. I blog because I like connecting with others. I blog to encourage. I blog for support. I blog so people don't feel alone. I blog to share real life and real faith. I blog because I can share my faith and hopefully bring glory to my Savior.

I am needing prayer right now. For three weeks now I have been dealing with an injured back, either a badly pulled muscle or a herniated disc, painful and frustrating to say the least. But yesterday I had some news that was unsettling. I went for my annual gynecologist appointment and the doctor found a fibroid tumor in my uterus and a mass in my left breast. I have a mammogram scheduled for Monday morning.

I can honestly tell you that I was not shocked, as strange as that may seem. I felt the Lord nudging me for a few months now to get myself checked out. But also just as honest is that it does make me vulnerable to fear. I do have a select few near and dear that already know my circumstances and it just has to be their prayers that are holding me up.

For now I won't pour out the vast array of difficult emotions that come at me. I am trying my best to keep them at bay until I have more information. I have a strange sense of peace even in the midst of the unknown.

Still I believe in the power of prayer, so for those of you who also believe will you lift me and my family up if we come to mind?

I will keep you posted. I know God is with me.

"So do not worry, because I am with you. Do not be afraid, because I am your God. I will make you strong and I will help you. I will support you with my right hand that saves you." Isaiah 41:10
