I know this is his doing. I know he is angry that I'm doing everything I can to get close to God again. But honestly I don't know how much more I can take. I need help ladies...yet if I can't help myself, who can?

I just found out that my 28 year old brother has cancer. Out of all my brothers, he's the one I feel the strongest bond with. He's 13 hours away so I can't even help with the girls.

Augie, what you feel right now is NORMAL. I am sure I told you my reaction to Joey's diagnosis. but if not... I collapsed onto the front lawn at CHOC and SCREAMED at God that how dare he make my son sick. Then I screamed at Satan a few days later.

I have learned something through this, that helps me keep pushing on. People always say God doesn't give you more than you can handle. I say God gives you more than YOU can handle so that YOU lean on HIM. Don't ever forget the footprints... the ones where He is carrying You through the storms.

And I don't care what time it is... you need to talk you know how to reach me.

(((((HUGS)))) I am so sorry you are going through this. I really don't have any world of wisdom.
Just say, "Lord, What can I do to help my brother?" Then just do what ever he tells you to, no matter if it seems small or insignificant. Because nothing is small or insignificant when used by the Lord.

My prayers are with you and your family.
Mattiez

I agree with this actually.

I am so sorry, how shocked and hurt you must feel. I too have felt like you are right now, its so easy to be angry with God but when we turn to him for healing we get the greatest blessings. He is our Great Physician and our Jehovah Rapha, a God who heals. Jeremiah 17:14. I will pray for comfort for you and your family and healing for your brother. God Bless Augie.

I will be praying for your brother, I know its hard to go through these storms. We must stay strong, and prove satan to be a liar. Because we have the Lord on our side, and with that power, we can beat anything.

I've been feeling this exact same way. Sometimes I feel like the closer I get to God, the more satan fights. It's frustrating!

(((hugs))) We're doing what God wants us to and He'll see us through.

As of last week they were still waiting on some test results before developing a treatment plan. It all seems to be going so slowly. It's almost surreal.

Unfortunately, no. They don't keep in touch with this side of the family too much. I'm sure I would have heard if he were in the hospital or anything though. I don't even know what treatment plan they decided on.
