In the mist of my biggest storm in life up to the moment that I was diagnosed with cancer, I was able to discover myself more profoundly. As often is the case, during your most difficult situations in life is when you truly learn what you are really made up of. The obstacles I had to face were so great that I questioned how could God have presented these challenges to me. I am not strong enough to overcome this battle I thought to myself. I don’t feel prepared to make all these life and death decisions being asked of me from the medical professionals. Cancer was a battle that was both mentally and physically challenging. This was too much for anyone to bear, how could I ever overcome such a terrifying and aggressive battle.
As I looked deep inside myself, God showed me that I am strong enough to overcome any challenge that comes my way and that it is possible for me to continue to be alive and live a full happy life. Due to one of the side effects of my chemo treatment, I had a chemical imbalance that tortured my body physically as well as my mental well-being. As I prayed to God with conviction and tears, I started to feel a sense of tranquility, where I felt a huge burden lifted from my shoulders. I felt a sense of relief, inner peace, calmness and strength. I discovered that I could fight this battle no matter how grim it looked based upon the medical reports. I found the inner strength that I did not know I had until this time in my life. I realized that I was strong enough to face this battle and any other battle that I may face throughout my life.
Prior to this unexpected cancer battle, I did not know my own inner strength. I discovered something new about myself as I faced this storm in my life. As you face challenges in life, you may not feel prepared or equipped to overpower these challenges. Don’t give up, you do have what is needed to overcome anything difficult that may be in your way, just dig deep inside yourself. Discover the inner strength within you. You have what it takes to be your own superhero.
