Please Help Me Pray

I'm reaching out this morning, asking once again for prayer I'm so undeserving of. I'm going to speak from my heart in this blog, which sometimes is not easy for me to do. Most of the time I consider myself a fairly strong person. If I have something to do I set my sights on it and get it done. I've never been a quitter. I get it from my Mom. But I have came to a point where I just don't know if I can go on. I have feared this point from the beginning. I have eight radiation treatments left. I think they intend to hold the chemo until after the radiation is finished, I will find out about that this week. I am scheduled to resume the radiation today. I just don't know if I have the strength of body or mind to continue. I must admit I find myself in a very low valley this morning. I have been searching the scriptures and asking the Lord for answers. Please help me to pray.

Praying for you daily, Debbie. I still believe you're SO strong-much more than I would see myself being. And I still believe that the grace of God is still there for every step, big or small. Keep trying to take just maybe a "baby" step at a time.

Praying for you all during the day that God will give you the strength to finish your treatments.

God wants us to rely on Him,not
on ourselves.Faith is saying,"I
trust you,God,to get me through
this." That is what he wants from
us.Dependence not independence.I
love you!I want you to stick around
for a long time.Your kids need you,
we all need you!I am praying that
God gives you everything you need

It makes me so sad to read how down you are. I told Wendell this morning, now is the time to fight even harder. I know you can do it. We all have been so amazed how strong you have been. Just a little bit more and hopefully you will begin to feel alot better.
We love you,
Karen & family
& puppies!!

I Cor favorite verse and something to live by. You are a STRONG and wonderful Christian women. I'm not sure what God has in store but he is in control. He will not give you something you can't handle. One step at a time dear friend that's all anyone can do regardless of the curve balls that are thrown at us in this life. Keep your head up and keep smiling. We all believe in you and are so proud to say "Yes, that's Debbie...she is looking cancer in the face and kicking its butt." Keep kicking, keep screaming, keep living! We love you!

Tater, Michelle, Nathan, Daniel and Conner!

Debbie all that I can say is you need to listen to your heart. God is there. he has been there always, he is going to see you through this, he will guide you in the decisions. You are his child and he knows you very well. The two of you have this intimate relationship that started a very long time ago. You have known that all your life. When you called abba father he was there with you, you felt his presence, he has his arms around you now and has been carrying you from the very moment you cried out to him just remember he will never let you go! Satan is playing a dirty little game right now and you need to call him out! God has your back! There is nothing that compares to Gods love for his children you are his child.
I love you Debbie
God is an awesome God

We pray for you daily. The Lord is going to pull you through. He will get the glory. I was reading in Isaiah 40:31 "But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." The Lord will renew your strength. You have been a faithful servant. He has received the glory. He will never leave you nor forsake. You are a very strong woman. Keep pressing on my friend. We love you.
