Sitting in Fear, I Was Able to Thank Him – An offering from Maryellen Wales

Psalm 6:1-3

O Lord, heal me, for my bones are shaking with terror.

For years I lived with the terror described in this Psalm. I lived in a void. My journey had not begun. In May 2016 I was informed that I had metastasized breast cancer, in all my bones. The terror I felt was identical to Psalm 6:1-3 above. I was frozen in terror. I heard God’s voice “Come to me”. I had to make a decision. Did I trust God or not? Sitting in my “chair”, in total fear, I was able to thank Him (with help from HS) for this cancer, if, it meant it could be used to minister to others.  With Christ in me and me in Christ we have this cancer together.  My antidote for Psalm 6:1-3 is Philippians 4:13 I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me.  Today I am cancer free.
