More Than a Conqueror

Standard

“Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. ” ~Romans 8:37

I first met her when I was in middle school.  We were not the best of friends.  Our journey continued on to high school.  We pretty much ignored each other.  Fate would have it that we would continue on to the same college.  Somehow we ended up talking casually being that we were both strangers in a strange land.  We having not stopped talking since. 

In 2005 she was diagnosed with breast cancer.  I was shocked beyond words.  She was so young!!!  I felt so afraid for her and could not stop my tears from flowing.  But through her trials she never gave up.  She is the epitome of courage.

She has been a fount of strength for me in my time of sorrow.  I can’t even articulate how her support, love, and positivity have kept me afloat. 

And she is currently going through another bout of cancer.  Her faith could move mountains.  She is such an inspiration that I encouraged her to start a blog.  Because I know that her life and experiences will bless others and keep their spirits buoyed, too.

  1. I will keep your friend in my prayers. If she does start a blog, would you please let me know? I’d be happy to support it and will encourage others to do so also.

  2. I’m so sorry your friend is going through this, Morocco. I have someone close to me who has fought a very similar battle, and fortunately won! Theses women are so amazing and, yes, very inspirational. I will keep her in my prayers.

    Let us know if she starts a blog…I love to read insight to others lives, as it makes me realize that everything is relative.

  3. She started already! It’s called “Destined4More.” It’s on my blogroll and I thought I linked to it, but I guess not! I know she will appreciate the support! Thanks!

  4. I will add her to my prayers as well. My mom is a testament that you can conquer cancer. It is hard to go through the 2nd time. When we found out about my mom’s 2nd bout it was two days after my father passed away. I was devasted. Luckily my mom wasn’t. She’s a fighter, and still here 17 years later.

    Power in prayer!
