This week my dear friend was hospitalized with a massive infection and in the process found out that her cancer has spread to her lungs, and her bones. It's in her pelvic bone, sternum, ribs, and spine. I found this out while caring for her three young children, one only 2 months old. I sit in shock and wonder what God's plans and will is in this situation. I also sit in awe of my dear friend. She constantly looks to Jesus for peace and holds to Him even in very dark times.
I selfishly want to be with her in the hospital and to give her hugs and to just sit with her. In this time I need God's perfect peace. I need that verse more than ever to think on what is good and allow Him to regulate my mind. Seriously regulate.
I sat in the grocery store parking lot for a half an hour while my kids watched a movie on our portable movie player. Could have been a devotion time, but all I was doing was trying to focus on what I needed in the store. I was trying to make a list but how my mind wandered.
Please keep her and her precious little ones in your prayers.
May we all keep close to the Lord and be given His peace.
