DAY 11 - HOPE
Last September 2019, we went for a walk in Central Park, Manhattan, New York. We sat on one of the benches to rest. I bought fresh lemonade and cotton candy for my nephew, Ethan. We renewed our trek until we realized that Kuya Vigil who has Parkinson’s Disease was not with us. We prayed hard and hoped to find him.
When you are diagnosed with cancer, you feel lost, alone and hopeless. Review your life and find out what cancer is teaching you. It probably wants you to create a hope for the future like a better spiritual life, a more physically fit body, a calmer mental and emotional state as well as a closer family relationship.
Set new goals to ensure your full recovery from cancer. It starts with one small step at a time. One fitness goal is to eat a healthy breakfast everyday like a platter consisting of fresh fruits in season like watermelon, papaya, pineapple as well as cucumber, carrot and turnips sticks with a vegan dressing on the side. Another goal is to move your body at least 150 minutes of moderate exercise per week. Attend a spiritual retreat during the Lenten season. Grow in your relationship with God because He is the source of all hope.
From Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you, “declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give hope and a future.”
Lord, I pray that you heal me and remove every single cancer cell in my body. Create in me a hope for the future so that I can fulfill my sacred mission and do Your most holy will for my life. Through the intercession of Mama Mary and guidance of the Holy Spirit, I ask all these in Jesus Mighty Name. AMEN.
Write 3 specific action steps that you will take today to fulfill one of the SMART goals that you set at the start of this healing of cancer journey.
