Cancer...one of the most feared words in any language. After receiving a diagnosis of Melanoma the most deadliest form of skin cancer to exist, I began to a daily account of my journey through this difficult time. First, diagnosed as Stage 4 Cancer, I began to make final funeral arrangements, after care for my pets, write a Directive to the Physician, and ask friends and family members to pray for me. Once final preparations were taken care of, I let go and prayed to the Lord, "Thy will be done, Lord, not mine." A peace came over me and settled deep within my soul...a peace that could only come from the Lord. Now, my life and death were in His hands. "Lord, I Need a Miracle" is a daily account of my journey from diagnosis to the final prognosis. How would it all end? What lay ahead of me?
I spent so much of my time putting off important things in my life, believing I would live for ever, believing I would be young and healthy forever. Then, just as suddenly as my life began, my life might end having never achieved one tenth of the things I had planned. Faced with the devastation of knowing I did not fully appreciate the life I had been blessed with, I turned towards the Lord and asked for strength. Was He really calling me home? Now? I had not even begun to live, not it was time to leave.
If you or someone you know has cancer, read my book, and have faith. Never give up believing in the Lord and His compassion. Your life may depend on it.
