On June 2nd, 2011, it was my first full day of the stem cell transplant procedure. This is the time where the “high potency chemotherapy” is given; prior to introducing the stem cells back into my system. I penned this prayer to the Lord.
My God, my Master.
though my flesh is under repair
and it burns with the doctors’ medicine,
it is Your heart that I long to serve.
I gravitate to Your healing light,
the light of truth and forgiveness.
I owe all that I have to You, Lord.
Through the struggle of my ailment,
You shield my vital parts
I sing Your praises on high.
Your Helper keeps my mind
focused on Your holy job that
You ask of me.
For this I give thanks.
For there is no greater love
in my life than to serve Your will
and thus please You.
Guide me gently to the path
that You want me to walk.
