Step # 7 – Reactions – of others -

I am so grateful for courage to tell others what is happening to me. The reactions amaze me. I feel the strength of people praying for me. The cards, the phone calls, the efforts to search the internet for answers for me, the books of encouragement, the words of encouragement, the teddy bear—all these things let me know others care.

I didn’t know others would care so much. I care for others. Why wouldn’t others care for me?

Have the reactions of others surprised you, when you shared difficult news? In what ways? Were you ever sorry you shared your news?

Dear God,

You really do specific work through others. I thank you for their support, encouragement, and love. Amen.

For where two or three gather together because they are mine, I am there among them. Matthew 18:20
