Cash… my hero

My cousin’s little boy was only 9 months old when he was diagnosed with cancer.  As I watched him fight so strongly and watched his parents be so strong, so strong in their faith. I wanted that!

They could have so easily gotten mad at God but instead they clung to Him, trusted in Him that everything would turn out alright. 

I wanted to have faith like that.. to trust in the Lord like they did and still do.  They do so much for Children’s Cancer Foundation and so many other foundations.  Something good did come from something so tragic.

So, even though I was saved when I was in high school, I didn’t ever understand the kind of relationship you could really have with the Lord.  This time after rededicating it was so different.  Learning that He has a plan for everything, and trusting in Him that it is the right plan.  That something good will come from whatever is going on at the time, we just have to wait to see His glory.
There are still so many times that I try to take control instead of letting God have control.  It is a hard thing to do sometimes.  Once you do get there though, things are so much better!!  And the times that you don’t He does understand.. He knows your heart and what you truly want. 

I love how now when I have a problem… I go to the Lord.  I cry out to Him and pour my heart out to Him.  Sometimes it isn’t pretty but He’s still alright with that… as long as I continue to come to Him!  (there are still times I tend to whine and moan before I go to Him but it is just something I have to pray about and continue to work on)

So… from one little boy’s fight to save his life, he in turned saved mine.  And now he, with the help of his family, continue to do what they can to save the lives of others!  Whether it be through all the fundraisers they are doing or just by others watching them, and seeing God shine through them!

~Romans 1:8-12~
8 First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world. 9 For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of His Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers, 10making request if, by some means, now at last I may find a way in the will of God to come to you. 11 For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift, so that you may be established— 12 that is, that I may be encouraged together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me.

Nicole,

Thank you so much for sharing this.
It reminded me of staying at the Ronald McDonald houses while tests were being run on our son.
If it wasn't for a place like that we would have been on the road many miles also.

Cash is so cute and his whole body seems to light up when he smiles.
How tragic he only lived for a little while.
