I stopped the car and cried…I am WAY-FM.

My daughter was born January 31, 2011 and 3 months after having her, my world came to a crashing point that I had no control over. I was told I had breast cancer at the age of 27. I had my family to help me, so all went as was planned and it was gone and so I was on the mend. But my daughter’s father left us, just packed and moved to another state. My heart was in a million pieces, but I had my daughter to be strong for. I just wanted it to stop, the pain the overwhelming feeling that I failed at this relationship thing. And 2 months later I was told I had breast cancer again. So I did it all over again alone. One day on the way to my treatment I stopped the car and cried. Then that song by Plumb “I need you now ” came on because I hit the wrong button. But that was God 100%.  As I sat there singing my heart out at the top of my lungs, I stopped and laughed.  From the moment that I started this new and overwhelming life of mine, I had never stopped to just cry, to say and show that I was scared out of my mind.  I hadn’t given this to God and allowed him to become the person, the man in my life that I could depend on.

Almost two weeks later I was looking for a little apartment for my daughter and myself. On a tight budget I was again feeling like nothing was going to come. But I stopped and gave it to God.  Six months later I found a new, safe place in my budget. Every night and every morning I would pray the same thing with my daughter.  Lord thank you for our home, our car and our job.   I can play your station and it helps me start my day. It calms me, allows me to worship with all my heart. So thank you so much for all the support you give by talking, by sharing, by opening my heart and mind to think in God’s way.
