Woohoo!  Mash and Smash Again!

“14 But as for me, I trust in You, O Lord, I say, ‘You are my God.’
15 My times are in Your hand’….”  Psalm 31:14-15 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

“The results of your mammogram were inconclusive.”  Traci nearly always receives this letter, and nothing is found. I returned for another mash and smash session that afternoon. On the black and gray screen, shining bright and white was an M&M sized dot.

 A biopsy and three days later my family doctor and friend called to confirm what God had placed on my heart. That bright, white dot was breast cancer. April 2010 was the beginning of another, life-long adventure with my Savior.

No matter where this journey carried me or where it ended my Savior promised me that my times are in His hand. I likened it to being in labor with my first child. I experienced nervousness that I might behave so as not to honor Jesus. I also thrilled that ultimately at the end of this time I would receive one of God’s greatest blessings!

Held in His hand on this new path through mountain tops and valleys, the blessings poured into my life. Deepened relationships. New friends and acquaintances. New experiences.

Thank you, Lord, for the mashes and smashes of life. Thank you that blessings also enter our lives when troubles and hardships come. Thank you we can rest in you because our times are in Your hands. In Jesus’ name, amen.

    I’m so glad I got this… I’m slightly overdue for mine… 😬 (by about eight years. I KNOW! I’m gonna go. Putting a reminder in my phone right now to call Tuesday and make an appointment.) And thank you for sharing this! It reminds me of how PROUD I AM to be your kid. And I know for a fact I get my inner strength from you! I couldn’t have had a better example! LOVE YOU, Mamma!
