It is true, each round gets significantly harder. I made a quick fun update video for you all. Please watch share and like.
Round four is scheduled for the first week in February and I will be doing radiation for the first time along with it. All of these treatments have been more taxing on my body and mind than I can express in words. I think I understand the context of Romans 8:26 a bit better now when it says.
Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.
In the last four days as I was trying to lay perfectly still and in to much pain to sleep I found myself talking to God about everything. As I reflected on what has been happening in my life I took great comfort in God’s word that says.
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:37-39
Jesus endured pain that I can’t even begin to imagine. The fact that He did so on my behalf… all of our behalf’s, is absolutely amazing and in my suffering I stand in awe of how much weight the sacrifice of Jesus was for us. So after being diagnosed with uncertainty, going through several toxic treatments that destroy my body, and feeling some of the worst physical pain in my entire life, I praise God for my circumstance, that God Himself has felt this pain and worse and knows.
God is good all the time.
