Counting My Blessings

I am so blessed. Living with a tumor in your head could be a very stressful situation. It is like living with a time bomb. You can’t see inside it to know when or if it is going to go off or what it is doing. You don’t know if it is growing or shrinking. You just have to wait and see what happens.

But because of the priesthood blessings I have received, even on a bad day when I can feel the pressure inside my head, it doesn’t cause me stress or worry because I know the Lord is with me and is caring for me. I know that eventually everything is going to be all right because of the promises I have been given. I am so very grateful for the priesthood of God and for its healing power.

I'm also thankful for the peace and comfort that comes through Priesthood blessings. I love this week's Words of Encouragement and affirmation too. Thanks! :)

Thank you so much for sharing your challenges and how you have found peace. I start to feel very agitated with my challenges, but through your example and words find peace in my life also. I start making more of an effort to "let go" and then feel Heavenly Father's love wash over me. I even see glimpses from time to time of what he is molding me into :). I also find comfort at times from looking at a challenge and instead of spending so much effort to figure out how to "fix it" or make it go away, thinking about possible lessons or experience that Heavenly Father might want me to gain from the challenge.
