Blessings in the Storm

Today three of my sweet writer buddies got together and fixed me up and took pictures of me for my book. Golden Dreams should be out in March on Amazon. (end of March : )

I am blessed!  Coming and going. Rich beyond what I can imagine in the treasure of friendship, Thank you Lord for good friends.

Update - I have an appointment at Baylor tomorrow at 1.  
God arranged the appointment. That I know. He caused one place to miss my calls and me to miss theirs. So I know right now, Baylor is the choice.

What they will tell me tomorrow - I don't know. 
But I am not worried or in fear. My God lives and He is my healer. I praise Him for His gracious love and hand. I praise Him because of His perfect love that casts out all fear. Hallelujah!

Healing Scripture for the day

Malachi 4:2
But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.

The only fear allowed - fear of the Lord. For that is the beginning of wisdom.

Rejoice.  Rejoice at the storm and laugh as it bears down with wind and rain and hail, for our God lives. And HE quiets the storm with a word.  Hallelujah!

What to Believe

Haven't talked to an oncologist yet.  Setting up appointment today.  Had to cancel one that is not on our insurance and going to UT Something or nother  : )

As I was waking this morning, I was pondering on how tidbits of information are taken in, believed, and acted upon. Just at the word of man whether it be on the internet, the news, or trusted friend.

*** and Revelation struck.  How much more should we grab hold of the Word of God which is truth.

So I am grabbing hold of verses that speak to my heart. speaking them aloud, writing them down, meditating on them.  Believing them.

For whatever problem assaulting you, do the same. The Word says to ask for wisdom and He will give it.

To keep asking, seeking, an knocking and you will receive.

God is alive. He did not create this world and go on vacation. He is an active part of our lives if we but let Him. Open that door and invite Jesus into your heart. Into your daily life.
Abide in Him. and sit at His feet.

I don't promise you warm fuzzy feelings.  Only the Truth of His Word.

Healing Scripture of the day
Psalm 107:20
He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.

Amen!  God sent His Son, Jesus, to destroy the works of the devil.

1 John 3:8
... For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

Truth!  Seek it, ask for it, knock on the door of heaven to receive it. And then Hold on tight.

Can a carnivore go vegan?

Well, I will see.
All the evidence points to meat as a culprit to health problems.
Hmm, hate that. I like my steak and hamburgers. Although I think the American eating habit has changed to having what used to be Sunday dinner every day if not twice daily. We are eating for 2-3 people. No wonder we are fat!

I'm not saying I will never eat steak or hamburgers again, but I realize to kick this BC ogre, I will have to eat healthy.

So for now, veggies here I come.

I have started juicing.  Not bad.
Bought a smoothy maker yesterday - those are good.  yummy

Also kicking out sugar.  I got that mostly by drinking cokes.  I think I was on the carnivorous hummingbird diet  LOL

Not now.  No more cokes -- I never ate much candy or cakes or cookies so that's not a problem.

Eating out may be a problem.  Yikes - just where am I going to go and get something that is not meat and still fills me up?

I am up for the challenge!  God is with me and will lead me to green pastures no doubt full of veggies and then to still waters to drink.

So glad to have God as my Shepherd.

Psalm 23

King James Version (KJV)
23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

***Healing scripture for the day.  Speak it aloud. Shout it out. Wield that sword!
Exodus 15:26
King James Version (KJV)
26 And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee.

Invasion of the Booby Snatcher

That's right. I have been invaded by the booby snatcher. 
Breast cancer. 

I do not fear. That is the first thing the Lord told me "Fear Not"
So I am fearing not. 

In the coming days, I will go and talk to the anti-cancer doctor and find out more info

The Lord has blessed me with a wonderful husband (see the flowers)  a good family and awesome friends and church.
Thank God for a Bible believing Pastor and church. !!  
And most important, my husband and I will be seeking the Lord for wise counsel.

Gen 50:20 As for you, (Satan) you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive. NASB

I grab onto this verse. For this is what I believe. God did not give me cancer. The enemy of our souls did that. But God promises all things to work for good.

Romans 8:28
And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.

I will fight!  But I will fight with my arms uplifted and hands open in praise to my God who is above all. I will fight in Jesus Name and Glory to the Lord not in defiance to the enemy for the enemy is already defeated.  For the Lord is my Healer and on His Word I stand.
