I love what a lady in the oncology waiting room told me..."We're not survivors, we're overcomers!" I don't know what all of you believe, but I believe the Bible is God's Word to us and this quote went right along with some verses I know to be true. I John 5:4 "For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world-- our faith."
John 16.33 "These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world." I have had such peace going through this cancer episode in my life, and I believe it's because of my faith in a God that is a lot bigger than cancer! Surviving has the idea of barely hanging on...where overcoming lends itself to courage, strength, and hope. I love that! I hope each of you ladies who are struggling with this disease have this same faith....it's real and will make you an overcomer....not just a survivor!
