One of my best friends has had cancer for 3 years. I asked her if it was okay to share what's going on and ask for prayers and she said yes. She was diagnosed with cancer right after I was diagnosed with Lyme. We didn't really know each other before we both got sick, but since then have been best friends. The cancer came back a year and a half ago so they've been dealing with that. A couple weeks ago she started having back and neck pain so they scheduled a pet scan. She was admitted to the hospital on Sunday to get the pain under control. On Tuesday they got the results. The tumors have spread. She got to come home on Tuesday after her appointment with the doctor. She is doing radiation for two weeks with the hope that it will help the pain. They are doing everything they can to make sure she is not in pain. I ask that you please pray for her and her family. Please pray that she doesn't hurt. Please pray for peace and comfort. Please pray for God's healing hand.
She is such a blessing to me. Even though we don't have the same disease, we understand what each other is going through. I love that we don't have to entertain each other. For example, last night I went over to hang out with her. We were watching a movie and both of us fell asleep on and off. I'm pretty sure we didn't talk for at least an hour. That's the best kind of friendship you can have. We can talk about anything, but can also just be.
I love how verses in the Bible still apply to us today. Most books written are outdated not too long after they are written. "but the word of the Lord stands forever." 1 Peter 1:25
This verse describes perfectly what is going on right now.
"For we have no power to face this vast army that is attacking us. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are upon You.” 2 Chronicles 20:12
Then a few verses down it says,
"Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s." 2 Chronicles 20:15

Thank you so much.
