Still Giving Thanks and I Always Will
· Yesterday was such a wonderful blessing sharing Thanksgiving greetings and receiving so many Thanksgiving wishes. Spending time with some family and friends topped it off.
· Although my life has been in spin for the last six weeks, I am exceedingly grateful for what the Lord has brought me through. What I experienced had me confused and it was overwhelming. While processing this and pondering it in my heart, I realized that I was not exempt from sickness (disease), pain and sorrow.
· I want to put special emphasis on having mammograms. This is the reason why. If there is a diagnosis of breast cancer the sooner it is detected (like mine), there is hope that the medical doctors will move quickly, as they were with me and you will have a better quality of life.
· I am so grateful to the Lord that my life is still fruitful and the ministry is still going non-stop. I never missed a beat; kept it moving
despite the attack against my body.
· I thank God for allowing me to go through this, so that He will get the glory. I have family and friends who were not aware of my situation. To tell you the truth, I wanted to get the report from the doctor first, even though I did a sneak peek on my patient portal report prior to the doctor visit. However, the surgeon went into understandable details about the good news.
Double Good News
1) The Gospel of Jesus Christ (Spiritual News) - He died, was buried, and resurrected for you and me to have a new life. For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:3-4). Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new (2 Corinthians 5:17).
2) Healing (Physical News) – But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed (Isaiah 53:5), who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed (1 Peter 2:24).
