Our High Priest

"Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are - yet was without sin. Let us approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need." ~Hebrews 4:14-6

My mom will have surgery on Wednesday. However, all the prep begins tomorrow. She is strong! And she has a High Priest who is walking each step of this with her. The sermon at church yesterday was on the verse above. Perfect timing, don't you think?

Mom is having a double mastectomy. We won't know until after surgery whether or not she will have to have chemo. My mom thinks she will have to. I am praying for healing without chemo. On Tuesday she has to do a dye test to target all of her lymthnodes. She faces a tough battle, but God is bigger! Please pray for my mom this week. Please pray for my Dad. He doesn't show it, but I know this diagnosis has rocked his world. He and my mom fell in love at a young age and have been married for more than 30 years. He has already told my mom there's no need for her to wear a wig if she does need chemo. That's love!

God is good! ALL the time! Whether you're facing cancer or not, He is good and He is in control. Thank you in advance for your prayers for my mom! Prayer is a powerful, powerful thing. I know God has this in His hands because our family has a peace that only God can give. The peace that surpasses all understanding!
