God will fight your battles.

This is what I'm working on today... and yesterday and probably still tomorrow: patience with the process. The chemo sick is lasting longer than I like.  Saturday was hard.  Sunday was microscopically better.  Today was clearer mind but I still can't walk upright from couch to kitchen table without ending up doubled over and breathing hard.  My shoulders are tender and achey, across the top of my chest is tender and achey, I showered and dressed and then had to lay down on my bed... and then fell asleep before noon.  I find myself annoyed by my own body.  Dumb since a) it's not kind; b) it's not beneficial; c) this is my body healing and so that takes time. 

A good reminder: God is fighting on my behalf, just rest Kristin and let Him do His good work.


  1. Yes, and be nothing but kind to yourself...nothing else is good enough.
    (thanks for being kind to me by letting me visit - I luved seeing you :)
    I love you xox

  2. Hi Kristin!
    I never realized the power of the two words God spoke to the Israelites "Be still" - when fighting a chronic illness, too often we sometimes think too much "I can fight this, i can do this, i can keep going!" - which are all good and encouraging thoughts, but it is most important to remember to be still and remember that God is already fighting that battle for us - thanks for the beautiful reminder!

    Praying for your family, and for God to allow the chemo to work its intention and eliminate all the cancer cells.

    Our blogs have very similar themes - come check mine out when you have the time!

  3. Kirstin...thanks for being so real...and sharing your joys and sorrow....

    Think of you often and praying for you.
