Team Huff’s Heart
Brain cancer. That’s a hard situation to swallow.Cancer has taken a lot away from me. It’s taken some of my hair. It’s taken more of my energy. It’s taken even more of my blood.However, that’s not the end of the story. God has been and still is so good. My healer, my Savior, the steady Rock on which I stand; He is always near. He is trustworthy and faithful. I will praise Him in the days that are easy, but even more so in the days that are hard.
“As for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more. My mouth will tell of your righteous deeds, of your saving acts all day long…” Psalm 71:14-15
