A Journey of Faith



Thank you to all who left such sweet encouraging comments!!

I'm really excited to post here about this journey.

Today was my first Radiation Oncology appointment,a consultation. I learned soo much in a short time. God blessed me with a wonderful doctor.

1. GOD leads the way...AMEN!!

2. GOD's provision..is perfect

3. New faces...New places...ALL IN HIS PLAN

4. Learning is a blessing...even with Cancer!

5. I BELIEVE TO SEE...THE GOODNESS OF THE LORD!!

I will write more on a later post. But wanted to Praise the Lord for the good of the day...

Another, exciting learning process..my mind is taking notes!

Lots of them...to share!

~~~~~~~~My Cancer Schedule~~~~~~~

Feb. 18 appointment for "mapping" my treatments. This is quite an extensive appointment...1 hour...to completely study my body with images, measurements etc.

March 1 Begin radiation treatments for 6 weeks.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

One thing the Oncologist did do...was CONGRATULATE me!!!

on getting my Mammogram for early detection; it saved me from a longer process of various treatments...

EARLY DETECTION...is VERY important!!

Please also pray for my friend Kelly Johnson in Okinawa..her Chemo side affects have begun their toll...yet, she is full of faith...and her cheery voice makes me cry. She is amazing! Please visit her and encourage her as often as you can.

GOD used HER...to get my attention..for my early detection.

Please get your Digital Mammogram now if you have not in the last year!!

...recommended age that I read is age 45 and up...

...however early care is important in any health issue....

It is a responsibility that is yours....

God leads..and allows HIS perfect will as we submit to HIM...just as is the case with my friend Kelly. She did get her yearly Mammogram..but GOD chose this path to use her for HIS praise and glory. Just as GOD used my little Stephen...and he uses us in so many different ways...so many walks of life.

Walk with HIM..and you will find as Pilgrim in his journey...

Keep that light in your eye!

O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles.
Psalm 43:3


I have found in these journey's of Faith..that you will read many of the same Bible verses...as God's Word is Eternal...the assurance at any age of time... of it's TRUTH and power in the believer.

Favorite verses of confidence for me are found in ST.JOHN.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
ST. JOHN 1:1


And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
ST. JOHN 1:14


For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. ST. JOHN 1:17

There is always a time, and purpose...to EVERYTHING under the sun...with the LORD.

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
Ecclesiastes 3:1


I pray you are encouraged with each visit as you journey with me.

Blessings..
HOPE

Praise the Lord! And thank you for this uplifting and encouraging post. I really enjoyed all of the Scriptures you shared but this one *really* popped out at me:

For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. ST. JOHN 1:17

Amen and amen!

Blessings,

PS--I was going to visit your friend Kelly but couldn't find a link to her. Did I over-look it somewhere? (o:
