Today was an emotional day. We met my mom at her doctor’s appointment. Her 6 week radiation and chemotherapy treatment will be done on Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving. Nothing bad happened today. It is just emotionally exhausting. I cannot pretend, that she is the same, as she was three months ago.
I try to keep my mind focused completely on God during these days. I reminded myself that it does not matter what others say or think about me, only God matters. I will never please the world. I hope to please God. God sees what I do. God knows my heart.
Praying that I keep my eyes focused on God. I pray that I act lovingly at all times. I pray that God overflows my heart with love and gives me the ability to judge well with knowledge. Praying that I keep my thoughts, words and actions focused on God, so I can be without offense. I pray that I live a good life pleasing God.
And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment, that you may approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ, being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.
–Philippians 1:9-11 (NKJV)
God gives me peace and a spirit to want to live a good life. If you are going through a hard time today, I pray that God gives you peace and helps you through it. God has the power to bring you through any situation, in his perfect timing. Keep up the faith!
