i have add countless tests, scans, and blood work done over the course of this last year. my last two ct scans have showed no signs of cancer. all of my blood work has come back clear of any signs of cancer. according to the statistics...i had only a less than 2% chance of making it. but God isn't concern with stats...He is focused on what can be done...what was already done on the cross. the healing that is mine to proclaim over my own life. the ultimate show of love as a good shepherd, as a Father. i am a living, breathing result of His love for me.
and i am grateful.
i have been on a journey to be at peace for at least 11 years. a real life sojourn of seeking it out and pursuing peace. seeking ways to add a peaceable life in this ever-increasingly chaotic world we live in. one of the ways i have come to understand how to be at peace
is being grateful. in times of turmoil...focusing on the areas of my life that are good, that are fulfilling, that i'm passionate about, that bring to mind how wonderful life really is.
adding up all the things i'm thankful for puts life into perspective.
there are many other ways i have sought to be at peace but i have found being grateful one of the ways you can easily add being at peace to your life.
i wanted to thank you my family...every member of it and the part you played in my healing. i could not have done this without you. i love each one of you.
thank you to my extended family of believers who have prayed for me and been there with encouraging words. i love each one of you.
thank you to all my friends near and far that have blessed my life with you being in it. i love each one of you.
and finally and most ardently thank you to my heavenly Father whom i count on everyday to be with me and keep me on the right track of life, change, time, value, love, healing, gratefulness, and peace.
my love to each one of you,
so how am i to respond? i've decided that i really don't care about their motives, whether mixed, bad, or indifferent. every time one of them opens his mouth, Christ is proclaimed, so i cheer them on!
and i'm going to keep that celebration going because i know how it's going to turn out. through your faithful prayers and the generous response to the Spirit of Jesus Christ, everything He wants to do in and through me __will be done.__
i can hardly wait to continue on my course. i don't expect to be embarrassed in the least. on the contrary everything happening to me in this jail(sickness) only serves to make Christ more accurately known, regardless of whether i live or die. they didn't shut me up; they gave me a pulpit?
alive i'm Christ's messenger and dead i am His bounty.
life versus even more life! i can't lose.
in other words,
for me to live is Christ and to die is gain.
