He may have hair, he may not be living at the hospital, he may be playing outside, he may be wearing normal clothes..but that doesn't mean the fight is done for him. He takes his chemos daily, and more..he takes his steroids. He wears a mask around large crowds, he runs out of energy when out playing with friends. He has tummy aches, and uses the bathroom WAY more often than any kid should. He has aches and pains and cravings and frustrations. Cancer wreaks havoc and threatens to try and rob us. We are fighting. We are soldiers standing shoulder to shoulder. Hold your head up Luke, and hold up your weapons, and we are fighting this battle with you always. xo Mommy
New International Version (NIV)
The Armor of God10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
