October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Why are these women smiling? They have HOPE. Breast cancer is still the second leading cause of cancer death in women. Only lung cancer kills more women each year.  What you need to know and how can you help?

Statistics show that most probably we all know someone (if not yourself) who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. I fought breast cancer one difficult year. The endless tests, surgeries and depleted energy were all part of my healing journey. Today, I can count myself as a survivor!

Healing takes time, but you are not alone. God has great compassion towards you!  Here are some Scriptures you can trust in:

Love – Choose love over fear. And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. ~ 1 John 4:16

Believe – Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” ~ Mark 9:23

Hope – Look forward. I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, And in His word I do hope. ~ Psalm 130:5

Faith – Let your faith be bigger than your circumstances. Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. ~ Hebrews 11:1

Cure – The Lord is with you – be dependent on him today. Behold, I will bring it health and healing; I will heal them and reveal to them the abundance of peace and truth. ~ Jeremiah 33:6

Strength – Meditate on His promises. He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength ~ Psalm 39:7

Courage – Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you. ~ Deuteronomy 31:6

Cherish – The Lord considers you a treasureFor no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church. ~ Ephesians 5:29

Peace – Rest in Him. The Lord will give strength to His people; The Lord will bless His people with peace. ~ Psalm 29:11

Psalm 91:1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.   

All Scriptures are taken from NJKV.

Thank you, Lord, for watching over me with your perfect love. You give me the strength to fight against disease and the faith to hope in your goodness.

She’s Someone’s Daughter

Modern Day Slavery – It is Everywhere!

Many people believe that human trafficking only occurs in foreign countries. This is a dangerous misconception.

WHY? Human trafficking exists in the United States and sometimes right in our own backyard.

WHAT? Do you know the facts? How can you help eradicate this horrible beyond belief crime? I challenge each Christian to ask God, “What would you have me to do in preventing abuse and making an impact for victims?”

He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you But to do justly, To love mercy,
And to walk humbly with your God? Micah 6:8 

KNOW THE FACTS – Sex trafficking is a booming business. The common age a child enters sex trafficking is 14-16, but many are only 12 years of age. Can you imagine – She’s Someone’s Daughter who has lost her freedom!

GET INVOLVED – YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE                                      Click here for a list of ministry websites who are making a difference in their churches and communities working with victims, educating others, identifying victims and more.

Thank you, Lord, that you came to set the captives free. Show me what I can do to make a difference in the lives of those held in bondage by their traffickers.
