I have learned over these years of battling cancer that victories come in many ways.
They may be small victories like getting out of bed and taking a shower which the day before you were unable to do. Or perhaps being able to get up a few mornings a week to work. For many, going to work does not seem like a victory...until you can't do it anymore. Then it becomes a great victory.
Some are much larger victories, like surviving chemo, radiation, surgeries , on-going tests and endless treatments.
Perhaps it was the day I crossed the finish line at my first marathon...that was indeed a Victory!
Very wise counsel was given to me not long ago. "Celebrate the Victories, no matter how big or small they may seem". I try very hard to remember this advice, especially on the hard days when I may feel more defeated than victorious.
For the LORD your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory."
