Linda Burgess MrsLugnut

In February 2019 my world was shaken when my husband was diagnosed with a very rare and aggressive cancer. I fell off the planet because my sole focus was on him and his well being. For 18 months we battled this disease only to lose him July 7th this year. I have regained the 70 lbs I had lost, and I am having a very hard time getting motivated to get back on plan. I'm depressed and lonely and don't care what I eat or do and can't hardly make myself leave the house except to go to work and back. However, I don't want my kids to have to take care of me and I want to honor my husband's admonishment to me that I take care of myself. I'm gonna need a lot of prayer to get back on planet and get healthy again.

you are praying for this person...

Psalm 34:17-18, The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them;     he delivers them from all their troubles. "The Lord is close to the brokenhearted     and saves those who are crushed in spirit." Praying GOd's comfort for you my sister.

Father God, this sister is fighting a war, not just a battle. Help her to put on the full armor of God, trusting in your strength, not her own, and overcome and be victorious. We ask and receive in Christ's name.


Also, the Grief Share program (offered in some churches) may be beneficial to you. Happy to pray for you and your family. You will get through this and you can "do ALL things through Christ..." including weightloss and good health. Love you, praying for you and looking forward to your testimony! Amy

Praying for you Mrs.Lugnut. I know how it feels when you are the main caregiver and that role ends. I had the same reaction when my mom passed away, as I was her caregiver. One of the best things you can do is get into the word, get a daily devotional book and take the time to read it every day. Memorize helpful scripture. And walk! Try to take time to walk every day and praise the Lord for the years you had with your wonderful husband. Your grief is still very new, and time will help. Honor your husband's wishes and do what he would want you to do--take care of yourself. I will be praying for you. Vicki H
