Day 17: This is Maisha writing for Kit:
He says, "at first it was hard to wrap my head and heart around the terrible news we just got. I realize that in my own power, my heart would faint, but God strengthens me when I am weak because He holds my heart in His hands. I really believe that. I know that in the trial I am facing, should it end in death (which I don't really believe it is God's will at this point) but even then like Jesus says, "Even if a man dies, yet shall he live because he believes in me" (John 11) and I believe this.
As you know I'm doing a second round of chemotherapy probably starting on tues. Right now they are treating me for an infection. They can't start the chemo until they get the infection under control. Please pray for that.
I'm still getting all kinds of wonderful blog comments, emails, letters and cards...you guys are just pouring out your hearts to me and I feel it. I feel like Moses when he sent Joshua into battle and stood on the mountainside holding up his staff...his arms would weaken and the Israelites would start to lose the battle...so Aaron and Hur would hold up his arms when they got tired and they would begin to win again. So, please don't give up on praying for me because your prayers are what is holding me up just like Aaron and Hur held Moses up.
I love you guys!!!
