Have you or someone you know just joined the breast cancer sisterhood?

Then you are on a path you never chose – either for yourself, or for a friend or relative you love.

The breast cancer journey.

It is a steep, scary, uphill climb, and you can't make it in prissy shoes - the ones that worked well for you when your road was smooth and easy. Regardless of your prognosis, or even of the ultimate outcome, God's desire is for you to walk in faith, trusting Him to give you the shoes you will need for the path He has prepared for you. The strength and grace to walk this new journey will only come by spending time with Jesus. Because:

"the Master, God, has something to say to this:

Isaiah 28:16

As I traveled my pink journey these last few years, I wanted to make sure that I was at least pretty on the inside, by His grace. So, staying in the Word and near to my Lord served many purposes. It not only lessened my fears, but it also heightened my joy in Him, which ultimately showed on my face.

So where are you right now? Do you feel like the bottom has fallen out of your life? Is your head spinning from too many doctor’s appointments and too much information? Then it is time to be still, and wait and watch for God.

"Help, God – the bottom has fallen out of my life!
Master, hear my cry for help!
Listen hard! Open your ears!
Listen to my cries for mercy.
O [your name], wait and watch for God —
with God's arrival comes love,
with God's arrival comes generous redemption.
Psalm 130:1, 2, 7

"If I were in your shoes, I'd go straight to God.
I'd throw myself on the mercy of God.
After all, he's famous for great and unexpected acts;
there's no end to his surprises.
He raises up the down-and-out,
gives firm footing to those sinking in grief.
Job 5:8, 9, 11
