I’m always reminded that God’s got this! He still has the world in His hands. We cannot take time off of life to just STOP. No, we must keep going and continue to fight for our families. We also must fight for joy to remain within our lives every day. During the month of September, I shared my most vulnerable moments with the world about how we are living and coping with my daughter’s diagnosis of Sickle Cell Disease. This fight that we are battling is not internal, it’s physical, mental, and emotional, but we are reminded that we are not fighting this trial alone. Every step of the way we can lean on our Creator who promises that He will never leave us nor forsake us. Deuteronomy 31:8 says, “It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.”
Everyday, that I see my daughters’ smile I am encouraged that we will be victorious over this situation. As the song says, “This Battle Is the Lord’s.”
No matter what you or someone you know is going through. Remember that if you give up, you’ll never be able to taste how sweet victory is. Don’t give up and please don’t let go! Choose each day to be positive, to be an advocate for yourself, for your home, and for your family!
