monday motivation – but god

While searching for an idea for this morning’s blog, I came across a Facebook post by one of friends with the title above – “BUT GOD.” Since my friend made her post public, I know she wouldn’t mind me mentioning it on my blog. She had gone for a mammogram – not the usual routine one – but one ordered by her doctor because they found a 1 cm mass in her breast.

I had to read more because (1) this is my friend and former co-worker, and (2) I had a similar experience almost six months ago, only it wasn’t my breast, it was my kidney. Like her, like any woman who has to go through this type of thing, I left the doctor’s office in a daze after he gave me his findings. I had a 2 cm mass in my left kidney, and unlike my friend, mine was malignant. The good news was since it was so small, it could easily be burnt off.

Like my friend, I kept thinking, He doesn’t give us more than we can bear. The procedure went well and my follow-up tests so far have showed no further growth. I am due for my six-month screen in a few weeks, and I’m trusting God that everything will be all right. #But God.

I know He’s awesome. He doesn’t give us more than we can bear. “No weapon formed against us shall prosper. ” If you have had any kind of diagnosis, remember God is able. Just trust Him. Do what you need to do and leave the rest to Him. Eat right. Exercise. Follow your doctor’s orders and – schedule your mammogram. This is my friend’s advice and it’s mine to you.

Bad things come across our paths everyday, but God. He is on your side. Won’t you trust Him today? If you enjoyed this post, share it with your friends and on social media. If you need further help, please fill in the form below. God bless.
