But, today, will you give me the honor of introducing you to a Saint. I was introduced (well, we have never actually met) through a friend of mine here in Arkadelphia. It has been enough that my friend was so moved and touched by this woman. I knew she was a woman of God, that her friends were impacted by her faith and that God has used her and her battle with cancer to tell His story.
She has been through the fire, but not let herself be consumed or burned up. She has taken blows and stood the test of endurance and hardship. She has stood strong and tall when it would have been so much easier to curl up in a ball. I received this video link today that her church put together on their website of her testimony.
While you may not know her, I ask you to take 15 minutes to watch the video. It will change your day. It will put things in perspective for you and more than anything, it will challenge you to fight harder for a tomorrow so you can live better than you did today.
And, after you have watched it, take a few moments and pray for Terri. Her testimony of faith is unwavering. Less than a month ago, they sent her home from MD Anderson and told her their was nothing else they could do. In an email I got today, there is a radiation treatment that her doctor is willing to try. She will go everyday for 4-5 days and it is a very dangerous treatment. One of the side effects is death. While she knows what is in front of her, she knows who she serves and where she is going. Oh that I could live everyday with that abandon and not take days of returned health for granted.
Its time to get this blog back to its original purposes...begging and pleading for your prayers.
I'll leave you with these thoughts she said in the video:
He is not worried about my comfort, he is worried about my character.
Once you figure out it's not about you - God is enough!
May He be your plenty and your want this evening.
