(…here's my main point…)
As I began wrestling with this new discovery, God gave me the most amazing privilege of seeing how He ties everything in our lives together. Most times we don't get to know, this side of heaven, the tie-in, but by His grace, He revealed this one to me. You see, infertility has been the most painful trial of my walk with God. It tested my faith and pushed me to the brink of many emotional breakdowns. It was a point of surrender, giving up and saying, "Okay, God. I trust you. We'll do it your way."
From that time, God blessed us with three incredible children. They are literally gifts from God. Jessica, Cory and Olivia are blessings, each with an amazing story of how God brought us together to be a family.
In light of my medical status, I see now that God again "had my back" on this one. The cancer gene would stop with me and not be passed to my children.
Romans 8:31-32 "What then shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but gave Him up for us all- how will He not also, along with Him, graciously give us all things?"
I stand assured today, even in the midst of cancer treatment, that God is for me. There is no worry about the "Arkansas water," only tremendous hope in my family lineage. After all, I am a child of God.
