A member of our family recently found out she has cancer AGAIN (we will call her "S" -- just because i don't know if she would want me to post her name) - She survived breast cancer and now she has cancer AGAIN. This time it is in her bones - which sounds horribly bad. I totally believe that MY GOD can do anything -- Even when things seem to be at their worst -- HE CAN TOTALLY COME IN AND PERFORM A MIRACLE -- That is what I am asking for - For "S" -- who is a loving - kind - caring - generous woman ---- SHE TOTALLY ROCKS -- she hasn't had an easy life but she has never allowed her heart to be hardened by the hand she was dealt -- Please pray for her and her family.
My youngest brother we will just call him "M" -- witnessed a horrible accident - he witnessed death -- His friend accidentally shot himself in the head --"M" of course was very upset when we last spoke -- I wish I could be there with him now - not that i would have the words to make this tragic event disapper but just to BE with him -- to make sure that he knows I LOVE HIM -- and to hug him and tell him that this wasn't his fault-- I am very worried about him -- he is so young and impressionable THIS IS GOING TO CHANGE HIM -- I didn't know the young man who died but I pray that he knew God and had a personal relationship with him -- I know my brother is a christian and i pray that during this time of turmoil and confusion he will lean not on his own understanding but on God's -- Please pray for this young mans family and for everyone involved in this tragedy.
THINGS I KNOW TO BE TRUE
- I know BAD things happen to GOOD people all the time (just saying it puts a lump in my throat)
- I KNOW that God has everything in control (and that he doesn't need me to try to MICROMANAGE him)
- It isn't for me to know why these things happen (not just yet - although I hope when i get to heaven maybe God will pull me aside or better yet we will meet for coffee at Starbucks and he will explain it all to me -- and our conversation will end with something like "...Now you see, Shawnna, that is why it had to happen that way" -- and it will all make sense)
