Facing Breast Cancer Surgery, Anne Graham Lotz Finds 'A Vibrant Calm in the Storm'

Editor's Note: Ms. Lotz's surgery is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 18. Please join us in lifting her before the Lord before and after this procedure.

"He is the Lord; let him do what is good in his eyes" (1 Sam. 3:18b).

Hurricane Florence is still making her presence known. My cell phone alarm is continually giving me alerts that the storm is swirling all around, spinning off thunderstorms and tornadoes as well as flash floods. And this is the day, exactly one month following my diagnosis of breast cancer, when I go in for preoperative procedures before my surgery in the morning.

What I want to convey to so many of you who are praying is that the storms may be swirling around me, but they are not swirling within me. I have total peace. Joy. Expectancy. Trust. I know I am in God's hands. I know also the reason for what I can only describe as a vibrant calm is that I am not only being carried by our heavenly Father, I am being carried by your prayers. So before I know the outcome of the surgery, I want to praise the Lord for His great faithfulness, and also to say a heartfelt "thank you" ... to you! Please continue to pray!

Here is a link to a song that I listened to this morning as I stretched and worked out. I pray it will bless you as it has me. My eyes are fixed on Jesus. Therefore, all is well.

Anne Graham Lotz, second child of Billy and Ruth Graham, is the founder of AnGeL Ministries and former chairman for the National Day of Prayer Task Force. She has authored 15 books, including her latest, The Daniel Prayer.
