Written in my prayer journal, alongside my list of prayer needs are these two simple words, “Strangely Dim”. I wrote them down after listening to the hymn, Turn Your Eyes upon Jesus, to remind myself to pray that the “things of this earth would grow strangely dim” in my heart and life. Little did I know, how real these words would become to me throughout this year and culminating when I received my diagnosis of breast cancer in late October of 2019. Plans, travels, and life came to a screeching halt and this diagnosis began to eclipse my full horizon. After the dust settled mentally and spiritually for me, my heart remembered these little words and what I had been praying for. A cancer diagnosis certainly works quickly in making the things of earth to grow strangely dim. What really mattered came to the surface and the earthly things grew suddenly dim in the background. So, slowly, God is working these meaningful words out in this hard, self-centered heart of mine as I turn my eyes upon Him and His wonderful face takes up more and more of my line of sight.
Thankfully, I am through my cancer treatments and in full remission.
I decided to start this blog to share my heart as I walk through a challenging time in my life. I hope it is an encouragement and blessing to you.
