You will make it

You will make it. 

This storm won't defeat you.

There will be tears. There will be pain. Your heart will feel as though it is breaking in a million pieces.

But you will make it.

You won't always understand. You will question why you have to endure the most difficult journey of your life.

But you will make it.

You will hurt. You will feel depleted. You will feel bruised. You will feel as though all the strength you had within you has been sucked dry.

But you will make it.

You at times won't have the words to pray. You will feel alone. 

But you will make it.


How do I know you will make it?

Because my husband was diagnosed with cancer on December 30th, 2014.

And we made it.

Because he endured 8 cycles of high dose chemotherapy.

And we made it.

Because he was hospitalized for over 150 days.

And we made it.

Because our income was cut in half and our expenses greatly surpassed our income.

And we made it

Because tears soaked my pillows at night and my heart was broken.

And we made it.

Because my children didn't understand why their daddy was sick.

And we made it.

Because I saw my husband hooked up to IV's, getting platelet and blood transfusions and experiencing the side effects of chemotherapy.

And we made it.

Because sometimes I felt as though I was crawling towards the finish line and the road felt so lonely.

And we made it.

I know you will make it because there is a God

He hears your prayers.
He sees your tears.
He knows you are hurting.
He knows you don't understand.
He sees your broken heart.

And He speaks. Through the storm, and the wind, and the beating rain, I can hear His voice telling you:

"You will make it.  This storm will not kill you. This mountain will not defeat you. This road will not destroy you. You will make it."


He was there with Daniel in the lion's pit.
He was there with Joseph in the prison.
He was there with Hannah during the years of infertility.

He was there with David while he was on the run.
He was there with Esther in the palace.
He was there with Moses in the wilderness.

And He is there with you.

You will make it.
