The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit's prompting

2 years ago today, I had my biopsy of the lump I found in my breast. I remember waking up and everyone telling me, "It's fine! Benign!" Everything looked great.

I had such relief. Little did I know that 3 days later, I would get the devastating news that everything was not fine and I was about to undergo the fight of my life.

There are some dates that I will just NEVER forget and October 14th is one of them. So thankful for the friends and family that encouraged me to get medically checked out. If you know me, I am a person that just says "it's fine," and moves on. I don't go to the doctor unless I am really severely ill. So for me to get this checked was truly a God-thing.

I thank the Holy Spirit most of all for prompting me to get examined. May I never quench the Holy Spirit's leading. In this case, it literally saved my very life!!! If I wouldn't have gotten checked out...I literally cannot go there in my mind...too overwhelming for me. If we have accepted Christ, we have His spirit living in us. He guides us, prompts us, and convicts us...what a gift. It is my responsibility to accept this gift and listen to Him.

Encouraging you to listen to the Holy Spirit today. Also encouraging you to listen to your body and take care of it, even if you feel silly like I did. I'm reminded today, because of what this day means for me, but also because of it being breast cancer awareness month. I know it was not a coincidence that my diagnosis occurred during this month full of pink!

“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.” Romans 8:14

I'm listening Holy Spirit,
