My husband, Galin, has been dealing with back pain for over a year and a few months ago he started having nerve pain in his leg. Recently the pain started getting much worse and affecting our everyday lives so he went in for tests.
I was sitting in the waiting room, when the kindest doctor came in and said the words I was praying I wouldn’t hear, “it’s cancer” and just like that our lives changed drastically.
The next few weeks were filled with doctor appointments, research, fear, and anxiety. I went to bed each night completely exhausted but unable to sleep thinking about all the what ifs.
Finally I could bear it no more and surrendered it all to the One who loves me most and in return He gave me peace.

Going through this trial I have seen God at work in our lives. He has answered some of our very specific prayer requests and I thank and praise Him for all He has done.
He has blessed us immeasurably through His people. Words cannot express our gratitude for the outpouring of love, prayers, and support we have received. It has literally brought us to tears.
Lily wrote this in her prayer journal the day we told her. She gave me permission to share it with you :)
I pray if you are going through a hard time that God will pour out His blessings on you and fill you with His indescribable peace. If you need someone to pray for you, let me know. I would love to be praying for you.
Even when life feels like it is falling apart, God is unchanging and His love never ends.
