Based on the comments, emails, and private messages I received all day it would appear that my poor choice of words led more than a few folks to worry unnecessarily about the place I was in this morning after reading my Facebook update about a new post to this blog.
When facing adversity you always have a choice, succumb to it or rise above it…..I’m trying to rise above it and I could use your help today!
The better choice of words would have been…..this is my way of rising above it…..and then went on to describe how I felt my fundraising project for Charity Water was an example of that.
If you didn’t get the chance to read the post, please take a minute to do so and consider partnering with me to help build a well which will bring clean drinking water to a place where this is none.
While my choice of words might have led to some to possibly doubt my mental health; for me there is NO DOUBTING how much support and prayers I have coming my way on a daily basis, something which humbles me to the point of not really having the words other than to say:
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You, one and all!
Which brings me to something I want and need to ask YOU…..
How can I be praying for you?
One thing I’m learning in all this is, for me to be able to leverage my faith in the midst of cancer, my focus has to be redirected from within and shifted UP and OUT.
By UP, I mean my focus has to be on God and the lessons He wants me to learn.
By OUT, my focus has to include the community around me, especially the relationships both old and new from which I draw so much strength.
So would you please allow me the opportunity to leverage my faith by letting me know how or what I can be praying for you?
- One way would be to leave a comment at the bottom of this post which would allow the entire Leveraging Life community the opportunity to pray for you….something I think would be incredible especially when those who do prayed acknowledge it with a comment like so many of you did for me today on Facebook.
- If you would like to keep the prayer request private click here or on the contact tab at the top and it will stay between you and me.
Thanks again traveling this journey with me!
trust God period!
