My Journey through Breast Cancer

On October 11, 2013, I was diagnosed with Stage II Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) ... or as we like to call it, extreme measures for a nap (EMFN). For a while, this blog will be my cancer journal. Enter at your own risk.

Leaning on my own understanding, wisdom, knowledge, experience ... is so easy to do. Most of the time I can keep myself out of big jams and can even figure out complicated problems. But lately, I am continually being reminded of the great folly of leaving God and HIS wisdom out of the equation. I think there is great danger when we believe our own wisdom to be sufficient, even better, than God's. These twelve verses in Proverbs have reminded me of the importance, the necessity, of leaning on God's understanding, trusting his wisdom and guidance. Perhaps they will do the same for you.

My son, do not forget my teaching,
But let your heart keep my commandments;

2 For length of days and years of life
And peace they will add to you.

3 Do not let kindness and truth leave you;
Bind them around your neck,
Write them on the tablet of your heart.

4 So you will find favor and good repute
In the sight of God and man.

5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart
And do not lean on your own understanding.

6 In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He will make your paths straight.

7 Do not be wise in your own eyes;
Fear the LORD and turn away from evil.

8 It will be healing to your body
And refreshment to your bones.

9 Honor the LORD from your wealth
And from the first of all your produce;

10 So your barns will be filled with plenty
And your vats will overflow with new wine.

11 My son, do not reject the discipline of the LORD
Or loathe His reproof,

12 For whom the LORD loves He reproves,
Even as a father corrects the son in whom he delights.
