Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
I never really was able to wrap my head around these verses before. Since I was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma originating on the base of my tongue, God has placed me on a path that has truly illuminated the meaning of trials, joy, testing, steadfastness, etc…
If God sees fit, this blog is to highlight for you how God has moved in my life and help you understand how and why I find joy in my situation.
God bless those who pray for me, my family, my doctors and caregivers. Thanks to all who have supported us through a difficult time. I hope my path highlights God’s hand moving in this situation and that I can reflect His glory through it.
The first thing I had to learn was that this was all about Him, not me!
