I dedicate this post to The Breast Cancer Fighters, The Breast Cancer Survivors and Those Taken by Breast Cancer
On this, the first day of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I cannot help but to pause and reflect on all of the beautiful souls (women and men) who have to fight this battle, who have fought and won this battle and those who succumbed to this battle.
Though I have not dealt with breast cancer, I have known and dealt with several individuals who have and their pain was my pain. When they hurt, I hurt. I do however understand a life altering illness, diagnosis, recovery and healing and, one thing I know to be true is that fear is real and can consume us totally. However, I do want to support those who may be going through by letting you know that you have more strength inside of you than you can ever imagine and, you are already a a survivor regardless.
Yes, it is all about you and, in all things, you are more than a conqueror through Him who loves us. Always know that you are loved, special and an overcomer. Draw near to God and I promise He will draw near to you as He is waiting with open arms to nurture you, comfort you and give you a peace that you will not be able to put into words. Open up your heart to Him like never before and rest in knowing that you are victorious.
So, today, tomorrow and beyond, please know that I and so many others will support you sister and brother in what ever way you deem necessary. We will intercede in prayer for you, listen to you (and not offer any suggestions), encourage you, cry with you, love on you and more. Extend your hand and someone will gladly hold it tightly.
Together, we will support the fighters, admire the survivors and honor those taken.
You are LOVED!
Move Forward In Righteousness XOXO ♥
