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.

sometimes I forget

Sometimes I forget about the great price that has been paid for my life, and I become apathetic and lose my joy. (John 3:16-17)

Sometimes I forget that I am fearfully and wonderfully made, and I get lost in self-doubt and uncertainty about who I am. (Psalm 139)

Sometimes I forget about eternity, and turn today's struggles and pains into something more monumental than they need to be. (Ecc. 3:11)

Sometimes I forget how richly I am blessed, and find myself ungrateful for what I have and whining for things I don't. (Luke 6:17-26)

Sometimes I forget how deeply I am loved for exactly who I am, and I spend unnecessary time and energy trying to prove myself worthy. (John 3:16)

Sometimes I forget I'm the daughter of a King, and I behave like a pauper.

Sometimes I forget God's faithfulness, and I doubt the future and worry over unanswered questions. (Deut. 32:3-4)

Sometimes I forget God offers his great power and strength, and I try unsuccessfully and discouragingly to do things on my own. (Psalm 24:8)

Sometimes I forget God cares deeply about everything I do, and I neglect to include him. (Matt. 10:29)

Sometimes I forget God waits patiently for me to just sit by his side and be with him. I forget how much he's done for me, I forget how much he loves me, I forget he is the very reason I have life, today and for eternity. Why do I let myself forget?

"Be still and know that I am God." Psalm 46:10
