Praying everyone here is having a good week so far. I enjoyed the company of two of our daughters spending the weekend with us..We stayed up all night watching movies..one bout sharks which we all fear even though none of us lives near an ocean, lol!
I have six rads left (counting today) which I am getting ready to go to. My skin is holding up very well, and I am only dealing with fatigue which started last week. yesterday was my Herceptin/Perjeta infusion, so today I am more tired than usual, but I wanted to come on here to check on everyone, and to pray for those who ask.
This morning I was singing praises to the Lord and crying as I felt the Spirit shining light through and around me..I remember feeling like I could not wait to shed this earthly body in order to praise Jesus in the spirit and in truth without hindrance...I needed to experience this again (this is not the first time) because lately I have been feeling very down about dying..I get so depressed thinking about how much I will miss my husband and daughters, and the beauty of this world (even though there is much darkness and ugliness here too)..I have encountered angels throughout my life..both angels of God and fallen ones as well, so I have always known that the "afterlife" is real, but sometimes I get so caught up in the things of this world that I forget what I know to be the true things of God..this is not our home. We are only passing through. Somehow, and I don't know how..God will wipe away all tears and we will not miss our loved ones left behind when we go home to heaven..I believe this with my whole heart..but my sorrow is for those who will mourn us..that is always on my mind. I pray for the peace that surpasses all understanding and the comfort that only Jesus can give when that time comes for each one of us, whether we are the one who is called home or the one left behind.
As I've read through the issues with each lady posting on here, and seen both the answered prayers and the issues which are still looming, I have a sense of everything being perfect in His will for each one of us. I hate suffering, as I also hate to see anyone have to go through suffering..but I know there is a purpose to everything..and God is the only one who we can trust..and sometimes it is through our deepest pain that we experience His strength and his love for us...In fact, I can attest to this through my own experience of when things seem to be going very smoothly, I can surely lose sight of God and begin to trust in my own strength, or in the things of this world (like money)..I know this is human nature, and even the Israelites forgot God from time to time even though they experiences Him over and over again during their travels through the desert.
These are just my thoughts of the day as I write this I just want you ladies to know that I am praying for all of us..Our families too! And God is forever faithful and capable and He does care about each and every detail of our lives!
I want to encourage everyone to just simply praise Him today..God inhabits the praises of His people..and in His presence is fullness of joy..and the Joy of the Lord is my strength..and I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me!
"But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel." (Psalm 22:3)
You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore. (psalm 16:11)
Nehemiah said, "Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the LORD is your strength." (Nehemiah 8:10)
