G-d knows!

No matter the outcome, remember, our lives are in His hands, not in our control, and each day is a gift. It is written, the L-RD gives, and the L-RD takes away. Blessed be the Name of the L-RD!

Mishle 3:5-6 says, "Trust in the L-RD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding, Acknowledge the L-RD in all of your ways, He makes your paths straight."

Tehillim 121:1-2 says, "I lift up my eyes to the hills- where does my help come from? My help comes from the L-RD, the Maker of heaven and earth."

Read Tehillim 63:1-8
May the L-RD make His face shine upon you - Shalom!

some challenges can't be overcome

If God gave us challenges that we should be able to overcome what about cancer? My daughter has stage 3 breast cancer. She is sweet, caring and loving. Her friends, co-workers, boyfriend and my husband and I see how she has always been this way, helping others when they needed it, staying after work hours until a co-worker's husband was able to pick up his wife, who was feeling queasy from stomach flu. Cleaning her boyfriend's mom's house and helping when her boyfriend's mom wasn't feeling well and her boyfriend's mom is now helping her. What is the challenge for our daughter now that she is fighting this terrible disease? How can she overcome this challenge besides our prayers? Her doctors are treating this aggressively and she has had thorough testing to make sure no other cancers are there along with chemotherapy, radiation, and feeling sick from treatments. All she has is excellent care and positive reinforcement from all of us who love her. What is the meaning of this challenge?
