He’s got the whole WORLD in His hands

Sorry I’ve been rather quiet this week. I started to blog yesterday but I just wasn’t feeling it. I didn’t feel like I had much to report or update on, even though life hasn’t slowed down. I had been thinking a lot about how I have been waiting to hear from God on what I’m supposed to do. I feel like He has been pretty quiet considering how “loud” He has been over the past few months.  What is it that He needs or wants me to do? Am I missing something?

I’m going to back track a little before I get to the good stuff. The day of my surgery, 6 weeks ago, the Public Relations (PR) at the hospital, Travis, peeked in my room and introduced himself. My nurses had shared my story with him and he wanted to come  introduce himself to me and just chat. Over the following weeks he kept in touch, always checking to see how I’m feeling or if I needed anything, and asked how I felt about them doing a story on me and/or my surgeon. Obviously I didn’t hesitate because if my blog found it’s way to a surgeon who could operate on my “inoperable” brain tumor, how many people could this reach and help? Well, like I mentioned, things have been pretty quiet over here, until yesterday when the Lord spoke LOUD AND CLEAR. I got a phone call yesterday about a news station who wanted to do my story along with my surgeon. Who you might ask? ABC World News. I was absolutely floored. This was it. This is the beginning of me sharing my testimony.

They asked me yesterday (Friday), if I could do a Skype interview today (Saturday) for it to air this Sunday (tomorrow). I was a tad nervous about the interview today but I knew I would say what needed to be said. My best friend sent me this yesterday and it was exactly the comfort I needed for today.

“But when they give you up to the leaders do not be anxious about how or what you are to speak, for what you are to say will be given to you in the very hour and moment.” Matthew 10:19

I just finished up with my interview a few minutes ago and I felt like it went great. I was interviewed for about 10 minutes and they are interviewing my surgeon separately so I’m sure they won’t use all of my clips but they really set me up with some great questions to share my story in the way that I want it to be told. I’m hoping they will use the Faith aspect of it that I shared, but I guess we will all have to wait until tomorrow! I got choked up at one point but was able to keep myself together. What the camera couldn’t see was Michael crouched next to me holding my hand to comfort me. He really is the best.


So tune into ABC World News Tonight tomorrow, Sunday April 9th at 6:00/6:30 Eastern depending on your local station, to hear the story!
