A Little Better Every Day

Greg continues to get a little better and a little stronger each day! His appetite has improved and he has felt less nauseous. We are hoping that he will begin to gain back some of the weight that he has lots. He does have more energy, but still tires out easily. He went back to work yesterday. He’s also been walking in the neighborhood some. He had bloodwork done yesterday and all came back ok. His hemoglobin continues to be low, although it is a little higher than last week. We are thankful that it’s headed in the right direction! So, for the most part, Greg is doing well!

We are thankful that Greg is feeling better, but we have had a few days where we are struggling with keeping our thoughts and emotions in line with what we know to be true. Greg is tired of being “a patient”, my heart is breaking watching him be a “patient”, and we are getting frustrated with the amount of time that melanoma is taking from our family. Some days this “battle” seems so overwhelming and never-ending. These are the days that I know I need to spend extra time with the Lord and in the Word. These thoughts are not from God, but from satan. This “battle” will NOT consume us and it WILL end! We have God on our side….we are the victors! God’s Word is what I need to combat the lies of satan. So just as God so often does, He gave me words of encouragement this morning. Words to remind me that we are not in this “battle” alone, words to remind me that we have nothing to be afraid of, and words to remind me that He will NEVER forsake us!

The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still. Ex. 14:14

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. Ps. 91:1

Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith? Mark 4:40

I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them. Is. 42:16

God’s Word is so powerful and so relevant to our lives today. We are not the only family that is going through a hard season in life…many, many others are, as well. If you are also facing difficulties, I encourage you to read God’s Word. Read, asking and expecting encouragement….He is always faithful to give it!!

Trusting His Plan,
Greg, Sandra, Katie, Emilie and Jacob
