Breast Cancer Story
April 5, 2000 - “Cynthia, you have breast cancer.” I became frozen in that moment. Thoughts began to FLOOD my mind. My youngest two daughters were only eight and twelve years old. I can’t leave then now!
I blurted out – “You just handed me a Death Sentence!” I was told – “NO! we’ve caught it early and medical treatment has greatly improved.” My Oncologist described me as “Emotionally Fragile.”
As the midnight hours passed, at one point, I heard “Be Still and Know That I Am God.” These Words (Psalm 46:10) got me through the rest of that night and have carried me through these past 21 years!
Be Still – In our microwave, hurry up society; especially for mothers, being still doesn’t even seem like an Option! But, we have to take a deep breath, focus and just “STOP.”
And Know – This Battle is not yours! Get a team of physicians who you trust and have confidence!
That I AM God –
El Emet - God of Truth.
El Hakaavod - God of Glory.
El Rakhum - Merciful God.
Elohim Aizar - God our Helper.
Trust and Know HE keeps track of all our sorrows. He has collected all our tears in a bottle and has recorded each one in HIS book (Psalm 56:8)
21 years and counting…
