In September of 2019, I was mostly relieved when the doctor told me that I could come back in a year instead of every six months (like I had for 5 years). Then, the following month I took my last oral chemotherapy pill. Well, I must admit that although I was relieved, I still had to overcome fear. I had thoughts like, “What if the cancer comes back?” or “Are you sure you want to wait a whole year?” Well, the enemy also spoke to Jesus, and Matthew 4 reminds us that He overcame with the words “It is written...It is written...It is written...” I choose to follow the example of Jesus and speak God’s Word when faced with fear, opposition and temptations. We overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. (Rev. 12:11). God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and a sound mind (2 Tim. 1:7). Because of the stripes of Jesus, I am healed. (Isaiah 53:5). Our God is able to do exceedingly, abundantly above all that we can ask or think. (Ephesians 3:20). I could go on and on. And my testimony...Last week, I had my annual mammogram, and I am still cancer free!!! It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month. If you need a mammogram, schedule it and do your self exams. I miss my relatives and loved ones who passed away from breast cancer. I’m also extremely grateful to God for those on both sides of my family who have survived. I love you!
One day, you can read about my survivor story in my second book. By the way, have you read my first book? I’ve been told it’s a 'must read' and you can order your own copy.
