|Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, The Apostles|
Life is a journey. We're all on a treadmill together encountering successes and failures, joys and sorrows, hardships and challenges. It's a trip in which we're learning all about ourselves, who we are, our strengths, our weaknesses.
These are known as Life's Lessons.
No one knows what's in store for us when we're born.
One thing I will tell you though, that the old saying, "your life can change in a second", is true.
A breast cancer diagnosis came like a thunder bolt on October 1 from my Dr.
I even joked about this with him as October 1 is the beginning of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
How crazy is that?
After two and a half months of biopsies, surgeries and radiation treatment I'm finally home, recuperating. The good thing is the cancer was caught in its early stages (Stage 1) where it hadn't spread into the surrounding tissue. I have to thank all the Drs., Nurses, Radiation Therapists for the speed with which they attacked this thing as Time was of the essence.
What surprised me, though, through all this was the inner courage I tapped into. It was like a latent part of me I never knew existed. I had no idea what lay ahead, I had no idea what the pain would be like, or what I would encounter. Yet I was determined to see this whole thing through, to the end (Follow Through).
My faith in G-d was instrumental in all of this. Without His Grace and providing me with the courage to quell my fears and doubts, it would have been much more of an ordeal.
Okay now you know my story. I have a question for you. When it comes time to follow through on something, will you? When it comes time to listen to advice, will you? When it comes time to meet life's challenges head on, will you? When life throws you a curve ball will you cave or throw it right back? What will you fall back on in order to move forward in success?
What do you believe in? Is this belief going to sustain you when you need it or wither up and die when you ask it for help?
The answer to this question is vital to your health and success in life. It may seem like no big deal to you at first but, in actuality, it may one day, save your life.
"Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened". Matthew 7:7
