  1. Thanks, Rachel, for sharing your space with Jessie. I so appreciated this inspiring story that puts skin on the truth of Jeremiah 29:11.

  2. Brave and Bold, Jesse! What an inspiration to place all our fears and concerns in the One who controls the universe! Thank you for your words! Blessings, liz

  3. He is in control and he is the Healer, choosing to think about someone else is a great way to take your mind off illness, and let that healing love flow. Wonderful story, I pray you are blessed with a complete recovery.

  4. Praising the Lord for how He has healed you and brought you through! Glad for His plans for you and you sharing about how He makes you brave and bold. Thanks for the encouragement today!

  5. Love, love, love this and the best line is… “To my surprise, I wasn’t upset.” Until it gets too close, the pain, the intrusion on our comfort and desires. Way to see past it, Jesse and see God’s plan for you instead. Thanks Rachel for bringing us Jesse’s story!

  6. Love, love, love this, Jessie! My husband is a 13-year survivor of stage IV non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma with central nervous system involvement (I joke that his cancer went to his head). He was an elementary school teacher when he was diagnosed at 34, and now he’s the principal of a k-12 school for Native Americans. May God be with you on your journey of healing and return to good health (and I LOVE your creative solution to not being able to attend the wedding in person). You rock!

  7. This is beautiful, Jessie. I get the new teacher thing. I was a teacher for several years and love te new beginnings of a new year. What joy it must have been for you in the midst of your trials. Kids will do that for a heart. Thank you so much for being bold and brave and sharing your heart with us here. Many blessings to you and your future. #BeBoldGirl

  8. Jessie, just so you know – you ROCK! I love this post! I love what you shared and the spirit in how you shared it. I love your love for your students and your brave outlook on life. You are so beautiful. We all should look so good with short hair. You are rocking that Halle Berry, girlfriend! And I think you’re so blessed to be surrounded with friends and family that helped “ijessie” to come to life. Thanks for sharing your story.

  9. what an amazing story and reminder of how God brings us through. He is truly in the details! I am so glad you are better!
