Today is ASCT + 276.

As I lay in bed trying to fall back to sleep, I find myself thinking about the nature of healing. Why is it that some of seem to receive healing and others not? Surely, in my own case, it is only through the grace of God that I am where I am.

I read, with a yearning to help, another myeloma blogger (ejbones) who lives in London, who is very young, only in her 30’s, who is going through so much. She has been through ASCT, complete remission, and relapse all in less than a year, and is again going through a cocktail of therapies. I have been considering how to comment to her.

How do I reach her without being preachy? Who am I to understand how she feels when she is so young with this disease? It seems her depression is totally understandable. Someone at her age should be enjoying life without having this beast weighing her down.

EJ, I pray that the peace of God may uphold you and lift you up from all the negative places you have been, and that the grace of God fill you up with healing and give you strength to go on in your therapy, and that your meds reach every cancerous cell and destroy them, and that God replace every cancerous cell with new, healthy cells, so that you may experience life as God means for you to experience life, through our Lord Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

Thank you, Lord Jesus, for my healing.

Amen.
