Philippians 2:27 Part 4
In Part 1 we talked about God's mercy and Paul's use of the word "but" again. Part 2 discussed the phrase "sorrow upon sorrow". We continued our discussion of this phase of our lives in Part 3 adding that God uses these times in to grow and strengthen our faith.
We aren't asked to understand God's will, only to have faith and trust Him.
As some of you many unfortunately know firsthand, when one is initially diagnosed with cancer, there seems to be an endless round of tests, labs and waiting before treatment can even begin. During my "pre-treatment" time, I didn't know if I would need a lumpectomy, mastectomy, bi-lateral mastectomy, chemo and radiation....we didn't know anything. For several weeks it was pretty bleak as the doctors fought to learn just what my situation was.
I remember crying in my husband's arms on the exam table when we were told there might be a second mass. I looked back over my entries to find my sorrow upon sorrow experience. The journey is here and here. This is the first time I've reread those posts...it was hard.
Here's how I did last week!
