Chemo Tomorrow

Hey I just wanted to tell you that my dad has another round of chemo tomorrow. We will be having a scan after this chemo to see if the chemo is working as it should be. Please keep our family in your prayers. Thanks so much. May you cling and rest in the Hope that endures.

God's strength is made perfect in our weaknesses. It's when we are weak God is strong.

Take hold of the strength to get you through this journey called life.

Back from Visiting with Family

We are back from visiting with family. We got back on Sunday night. It was a wonderful time with them. This time we got to spend the Easter weekend with my mom and dad side of the family. It was such a blessing to go were I feel the most comfortable which is being with and having my family together.

My dad had another round of chemo today. He is doing good just tired. He actually went to bed today early. Continue to please pray that he has his energy and strength and that he will not be in pain.

I want to share a few verses with you that have brought comfort to me during this time. The verses are 1 Peter 5:10-12 which says the God of all grace after you have suffered a while will strengthen, prefect, establish, and settle you. I love this verse because God who is full of His amazing grace will strengthen, prefect, establish, and settle us through our suffering. This verse shows that our suffering has a purpose. I don't know about you but sometimes I wonder what God is up to when we go through difficult circumstances. I am person who likes to know what is going to happen. Most people would say that I am mostly a go with the flow laid back person which I am but I am also the type of person that likes to know what I am doing or where I am going. This can serve a problem when it comes to God. God doesn't show or have everything laid out right before us. See if life were a book we know the beginning and we can choose the end. The beginning starts when are born. The end we choose by whether we decide to put our trust in Christ alone or not. God really doesn't give us step by step what is in between. Even though we don't always see ahead what is next we can trust that God's thoughts and ways are higher than ours, He has plans to give us a hope and a future, that He works all things together for good, and He does more than we could ever ask or imagine. We must trust and believe that in our sufferings by God's amazing grace He will strengthen, prefect, establish, and settle us.
Now it is time for me to start getting ready for bed. Hope you all have a good night sleep. And know whatever you are going through God's grace is sufficient for you.
Until next time,

I'm Back

First of all let me first say I'm sorry for being absent from my blog. This was the last week in school before the holidays and I had bunch of tests and homework this week. Now that I have a break I'm back.
This weekend we will be out of town to see family. We have church tonight and we will be leaving early in the morning to go see the family. It is a huge blessing that my dad feels well enough to go. Pray that he will countinue to have his energy. We have not seen our family since Christmas so we are really looking forward to the time we are going to have with them this weekend. We will be back on Sunday.
Speaking of Sunday hopefully you know what day it is. It's Easter. A great time for us to think about the ulimate sacrifice that Jesus made for us on that cross. I pray that you will be swept away this weekend by God's love for you. If you were the only one on this planet He still would have done what He did. God sent His only Son Jesus knowing that we were not going to be perfect, knowing that we would disobey, knowing that we would choose our own way instead of His, and knowing that we would stumble, fall down, and make mistakes. Yet even in the midst of all that He knew we would do He still choose to pay the ulimate price for me and you. Why you may ask? Because God loves us despite ourselves. God couldn't imagen what it would be like without you. God loves you that much and more than we could ever try to imagen. So it's my prayer for you this weekend that you would think about the ulimate sacfrice that was paid and know it was just for you. So you wouldn't have to bear the burdens that this world has to give us but so we could be free from sin and the burdens in this life and ulimately have the abundant life that we so despertly seach for. Go to God this weekend and realize everything you want, need, and want is in Him. Let Him sweep you away by His love.
By the way go to church this weekend. Tell the Easter Bunny I say hello ;)
Being swept away by God's love,
