I Just Don't Fit In

The world says I should be bitter.

The world says I should be angry.

The world says I should be in tears.

The world says I should not be able to see how we will get through this.

Mee Maw has to have a mastectomy.

The cancer is invasive.

Her surgery is scheduled for two weeks from now.

But, you know what's strange. . .

We aren't sad.

We aren't devastated.

We've even been making jokes about boob shopping.

People of the world don't understand.

But GOD's people do.

You see. . .

GOD's people know that there will be twists and turns in the journey.

But that the journey will be so worthwhile.

GOD's people know that through tough times and trials, our faith will strengthen and we will draw nearer to Him.

GOD's people know that He is already in our tomorrows.

He holds our future in the palm of His holy hands.

"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and
lean not unto thine own understanding. 
In all ways acknowledge Him and
He shall direct thy path."  Proverbs 3:5-6

It is going to be okay.

My prayer warriors are on it.

And my Heavenly Father is in total control.

We are called to be different and you are handling this so much different than the world would and that is a true blessing in itself.....
Thank you for sharing your heart!!

I agree with Piper! You are a walking, talking, blogging testament to the LORD deserving our praise in good AND bad moments.

"We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;

Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed"

2 Cor 4:8-9

Because Jesus is on our side, walking with us and even carrying us when we cannot stand. It will never make sense, but is still oh so real.
