I think my sister may be dying. She had a gastric sleeve surgery to lose weight, and for those that have any type of gastric surgery they are at risk of their liver turning to fat. She already was diagnosed with her liver turning to fat. She is currently away in South Carolina, and is getting worse day by day. She was an alcoholic before having the surgery done, and is supposed to not have anything to drink after her surgery because her stomach can't process the alcohol anymore. She continued to drink, but no one knew she was drinking so heavily. She's been struggling to quit and has been attending AA. BUT GOD! I am convinced that God will save my sister before she leaves this world, regardless if she goes on her feet or on her back.
My 27-year-old daughter is dying of cancer. She is at stage 4. I just don't understand why God would take such a beautiful woman off this earth. She is a good girl, a faithful child of His. Katelyn is loving and kind, wanting to put everyone else ahead of herself. She talks about the Lord constantly, and makes sure that everyone knows that she is a Christian by her actions. She is way too cool!! If Katelyn dies, I will not blame God. Everyone has a time to die. If she dies, then the Lord needs her in heaven more than we need her on earth. Anyone who knows Katelyn is exceedingly blessed.
I am wondering why our daughter, Katelyn, who is a devote Christian, is dying of cancer. She is at stage 4 and has months or maybe a year to live. She is only 27 years old. In her day to day life she lives a life of peace. With everything she does, she does it to further the Word of the Lord. For instance, while I might be frustrated at the newbie cashier in store that charged me $20 extra by mistake, she would be humorous about it. She would tell the cashier, "Don't let that bother you for a minute. You did everything else right!" And with a big smile on her face she would wish the cashier a good day. Now I make sure I do that too, even when I'm frustrated with shopping. I learned it from her. With Katelyn,, every moment is an opportunity to show people what the Lord is all about by her actions. Katelyn goes down to the Mission, which serves free food to our homeless population, and tells them all about the Lord. She tells the people of our city all about the good it would do if they would donate to the Mission and it's second hand store. She has volunteered in that store before she got sick. Katelyn is in the hospital a lot. When she's there she goes room to room (when she is invited) and talks about the Lord and His plans for each of us. She is well loved by both Christians and non-Christians. The doctors and nurses at the hospital love her too. Katelyn is not without her blessings. When she got sick her boyfriend proposed to her and now she is married. She is in a very loving, respectful Christian marriage with a man she adores. And he adores her, and is at her bedside whenever she is in the hospital. He is an attentive, loving mate for her. She is blessed with a family who loves her, and a lot of friends who love her too. I truly don't understand why God would take such a beautiful girl, one who furthers His Word, one who loves Jesus unconditionally and continually spreads His Word, when He could easily take someone else who doesn't further God's Word. For instance, He could take me, I'm not as good as she is. I don't spread the Word like she does. I'm more of a recluse. Why take her? I'm trying not to be resentful, after all, we all have to die, and we all have our time to die. But I'm wondering, "Why now, she is only 27." Perhaps if all of you prayed for her, the Lord would reconsider his original plans and put her into remission and she would live longer. Please pray for Katelyn.
