From the beginning I have described how chemotherapy has affected my body, my mental status, and my ability to endure dark, hard challenges one must face when put to the task. Survival was not a given, not even expected…yet in spite of all the torment, the torture, the agony…God has sustained me. Continue reading “Now I Have OverCome Chemo #5 and Lived To Smile Again”
I I have been away for a few days, but in that time, reflecting and understanding, and listening and the remembrances of wonderful Christmas memories of days long gone. Continue reading “Reflecting on His Mercy and Glory”
Knowing that tomorrow begins Phase 2 of my journey, my heart has been heavy all week, with dread, and foreboding. As God guides my steps through my appointment to get the port placement for what will be months of chemotherapy, and all that entails, it has been a ‘firing squad’, ‘cross carrying’ mentally overwhelming, slow tick tock, tick tock week, but this morning, God smoothed the wrinkles of my thoughts and reminded me that there is a blessing in this treatment. I understand this is necessary to kill any and all cancer cells that remain within us even when all focused cancer is removed. Just when you think it’s safe to go back into living.
So as I go through this next phase, I want to share with you what it is like to live through this hard challenge, because unless you are living through it, the picture is like “looking through a glass darkly”. I am walking in Psalm 139. Several verses bring peace and comfort to my soul, I live it. I am blessed by its sweet and wonderful words daily.
I am uplifted by God’s attention to me and how He continues to comfort and hold me, console me, love me, I have never known so much peace. In Thee O Lord, do I put my trust.
I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you. Psa. 32:8
I spend time in prayer each night, and early in the morning before day breaks, and while in prayer I ask God to instruct me and show where He wants me to move on His path. I used to pray, and then I would move in the direction I believed He was leading me, and I felt powerful in the movement, and was sure that He was guiding me and instructing me along the way. I walked with God.
Since my diagnosis and subsequent cancer journey, I have realized and been awakened to the wisdom that when you pray, you must wait…wait…wait on the Lord, not when you pray, get up and move in the direction of what and where you feel He is leading, or to what you know you need to have happen. He will counsel you, and He will guide you with His eye to His perfect Will. I found that regardless of how I wanted things to move, how fast I wanted to get through to the other side of being infected with something I didn’t know I had, I could not make anything different. What could I do, I had to pray, turn it over to God, and wait on the Him, and be of good courage with patience.
Thanks for joining me!
The Journey Begins
I am in the process of setting up my blog. Rather than halt my traffic, I think we could make use of the time testing our connection. Everyday, I will try to post something, and your task, should you decide to accept it, is to follow with at least one positive thought. Two or more sentences, because every thought is more than one word, and every one of us has at least one positive thing that can be said, so share it before the negative has a chance to ruin what blessing God is pouring into your spirit.
Let’s try it. Follow me on www.apointwithaview.com http:\\prophecyiswisdom.org.
