2 In Cancer

8 Years Cancer Free: Living Life Intentionally and Boldly

“People need more than bread for their life;
 they must feed on every word of God.”
Matthew 4:4
Cancer is brutal but CHRIST IS BOUNDLESS!

I remember this 26th day of January every year as a marker in my life! An encounter with the Lord, face to face and truly beginning to live a life surrendered to His plan, not mine. For the past year I have revisited some of the same quietness I experienced while going through the cancer process. Sitting at His feet.

Leaning in closer. Close enough to hear Him whisper the next step. Sitting still, unable to move beyond the written word on the page speaking to me right where I was. And I needed the time with Him. I needed less time with other things. I wanted to make my home with Him. “Jesus answered him, “Those who love me will keep my word, and my Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.” John 14:23

Through it all, there has been so much freedom in letting go. That was perhaps the greatest gift I got eight years ago, the realization that control is an illusion and the more I let go of trying to control my life and everything in it, the more free I am in Christ. He has it, really He does. I just always thought He needed my help..ughh. “Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.” Isaiah 40:28 

So to God I give the Glory. For the number of my days. For bringing me to the place where I am no longer “waiting to start living my life.” The time is now. Today is where I put another stake in the ground.

2017…Living Life. Intentionally and Boldly. 

And speaking of boldly, how about that pink skirt I sported today? Now that’s courage..haha…I just had to do it! My family has celebrated all day with lots of pink, pizza and time together…it’s been an unforgettable one this year for sure!

Have the best day!
