The past few weeks have been filled with continual sleepless nights....too many to count. Natalia cannot find comfort in her own bed at night, and she tosses and turns until past midnight sometimes. She just wants to break open the cast........and run! This happened last time, just NOT as bad. Maybe because she is not 8...not sure the reason or reasons, but I am praying this will pass SOON.......VERY SOON! Today marks ONE week left before her fiberglass spica cast comes off!! Woooo-hoooo!! Natalia made a paper chain to count down her days!! We are sooo excited! I can't believe how quickly the time has passed! One night, she was praying before bed and she concluded, "Please JESUS, let me live to see tomorrow..." Huh?? Say what? Did I hear correctly? I asked her what she meant? She said that she has quietly been praying this since she got cancer......just this time she said it out loud, she vocalized it....asking The Lord to live another day...WOW. She has been in the threshold of life and death....and knows that tomorrow is NEVER promised...she also knows that her diagnosis could change any minute, and that it is all in the hands of her creator....such a heavy, heavy load for such a little girl...too heavy for her to bear, Lord JESUS, please lift this burden from her.....I can't even begin to wrap my head around it...nightly asking JESUS to let her live to see tomorrow....oh, sweet JESUS, the realities of having childhood extremely heavy burden that ONLY JESUS could take away. This started yet another conversation with her....she said "Mommy, sometimes I look at Matthew ( 6 month old nephew), and I think, how is he going to be when he's older....and then I think that I'm not going to live to see him that big." This has been an open ended painful subject/conversation that we have had...unfortunately more often than I would have liked. She has lived through sooo much in her short life, so much pain and heartache, JESUS help us. At the same time, I find some relief in knowing that she freely comes to JESUS and prays to him, the ONE LIVING GOD! The ONE who could help her when she is in distress. In the midst of our circumstance, in the darkness, when the wind starts kicking up, and getting heavier by the minute, your vision is blurred ahead of you and you are completely the midst of your VERY real trial, VERY palpable trial, VERY painful trial....JESUS becomes your refuge, your fortress, your calm, your peace, your guide, your strength, your light, your shepherd, YOUR ALL. As our cancer journey continues, we will CLEAVE to JESUS with everything we have...NEVER letting go. 2 Corinthians 12:9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. Psalm 50:15 and call on me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me.” Jeremiah 29:12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.
