Come along on my faith-based, encouraging, and humorous journey as the Lord Heals me from the invasion of breast cancer.

A New Life is Dawning

                                                  Romans 6:4
Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

I believe I have been given a chance to turn my life over and live it in newness. I have turned from my zombie Christian life of existence and am excited by my new life walking in the spirit. Though I was born again and filled with His Spirit years ago, the turmoil busyness of life sucked the life out of me until I was merely going through the day, trying to get things done and then start over the following morning. Hamster wheel living.

So what has changed? 

I am alive! God has opened my eyes when I read His Word and it is alive to me. My spirit is pumping new life into me.

I'll be honest, it is a daily struggle to stay there. A struggle with my flesh and the busyness of the world. I dash out of the house with  my time with the Lord left for later. A time which rarely comes. 
Either I meet with Him in the morning, or it is likely not to happen.

God is the God of firsts.

But I am excited to see what He is going to do. I see others waking up too. We live in such exciting, although treacherous, times. 

I feel great and am exercising now. Bouncing on the mini trampoline. Supposedly if you do 2 minutes of rebounding that will flush your lymphatic system. Best it to do it every hour. That is not easy, but do it as often as you can.

I realize this new life will also result in a change of eating. No more cokes, fast food is out, and veggies and fruit are in. But I want to walk in health that the Lord provides in the foods He has given us. I want to have the energy to do what He has called me to do.

So onward! Fight the good fight! Trust in the Lord for He is our Victory! And through Him we overcome the world. And sin. and the wiles of the devil. 


Scripture for the day

2 Corinthians 4:10-11

10 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. 11 For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.

My Stony Heart

This road to healing is a rocky path. I have asked the Lord to create in me a clean heart. And He is. But He is also overturning some major rocks in my heart. A big one emerged yesterday. Rebellion. Yuch.
I wrote my devotion on it this morning. You can click here and read it.

Since the disease that has attacked me is actually nothing more than cells in rebellion, it is imperative I deal with the rebellion in my heart. So I am excited to see what the Lord is going to do with me as He cleans me up and gives me a heart of flesh for my stony heart.

I like the picture for today. It reminds me of the Sea of Galilee but is actually Joe Pool Lake in Cedar Hill, Texas, close to where I  live. Might have to go out there in a few days.

I believe I am healed. Had wonderful prayer at church last night. I know I am healed. Praise the Lord. He is good and His mercy is forevermore.

Which brings me to another thing the Lord has impressed on me, Who do I say Jesus is?  How do I really see Him? In my head, I know the right answers, but in my heart I think I haven't reached out to just Who He is. The woman with the issue of blood, she knew who she was reaching out to. She knew that if she but touched the hem of His garment she would be healed. She knew who she was dealing with.

So that is where I am at today. Just who do I say Jesus is?
The Lord of Lords, King of Kings. My healer, The One who Provides, The One who holds me in His hands. The One who holds life.

That is my contemplation for the day. I desire to see Who Jesus is. Not just with my mind, but with my heart of hearts.

Verse of the day

1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Staying Alive in a Culture of Death

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

On this Journey to healing and standing on the Rock that is higher than I, I am beginning to realize the forces set against me. Yikes! There are eels (enemy's evil lies) all around me. 

Why is that? Why is the opposition so strong?

Matthew 13:58

58 And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.

Jesus was in his own hometown and they did not recognize Him for who He was. They saw Him as the carpenter's son. Not as Jesus the Son of God. God come in the flesh to save us. 

1. Doubt and unbelief - Not recognizing who Jesus is

Another reason I believe is that our nation, the Good old USA, has embraced a culture of death. From tear 'em up moves, slasher shows, and entertainment that glorifies killing. How  many murders have we seen on TV/Movies? Uncountable I would say. We have been desensitized to the taking of life.

2. Our Entertainment that feeds on death

To go along with our culture of death is our throw away attitude. Life is not valued. Because of money and ease - we throw away babies and call it abortion. Over 50 million have been killed. And now, the elderly and disabled are being thrown away by hospice induced euthanasia. [there are some valid hopsice centers and workers - but make sure that is where you are sending your loved ones. Check it out. Many are killed by morphine cocktails to induce coma and then starved. I know there are good Dr and nurses, but there are many who have given over to the system and have become purveyors of death. Check them out. This is just a warning to any who have had a hospital suggest hospice for your loved ones.] 

3. A nation that supports the death of the innocent, the weak, and helpless.

Whew! Heavy stuff. Sad. Appalling. Sobering. What can we do?

Go to the author of Life! 

John 14:6

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

John 6:63

63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

So I am washing myself in the Word. Praying for Him to create in me a clean heart. Guarding my eyes and mind on what I watch and read. 

How can I ask for healing if I am wallowing in the culture of death?

I have some tuff questions for myself. Am I promoting life or death? Am I eating from the Tree of Life or the Tree of knowledge of good and evil? What fruit am I producing? 

But thank you Lord that you are greater than I. You have given me Holy Spirit to lead and guide and teach me. You are the Rock that is higher than I. 

God have mercy on me. And give me strength to walk the path you have set before me.

God is good! Never doubt it. 

Verse of the day

Romans 8:11

11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

Swirling Storms

So, I had the biopsy on my neck. Chest really. Hopefully they poked the right thing. Can't wait till they see what they got. I am picturing hundreds of little cancer killers jumping up an down and having a pep rally.  : )

Biopsy not bad at all. Just three little pricks and done. The place and workers seemed out of sorts, so I prayed for peace to fall in the place.

Then hubby and I went to Logan's and split steak and lobster.  Yum. We were good and drank water. Came home and played ball with Jacs so he'd be happy and let me write.

So what are the swirling storms?

My sweet father-in-law had to go back to the hospital. Same problem as before - He has congestive heart failure and his heart is about worn out. At 91 its ticked for a long time. Hopefully he will get better and be able to come home.  We have the Visiting Angels take care of him 24/7 already so he gets plenty of TLC.

Obama's death squad is after him. Wants him to go to hospice. I think not. God has the day when he will bring Norm home and no Dr Death is going to intervene. Beware people, they are out there and after your loved ones who are old and disabled. They need to clean out room for the 20 million people they want to add to the health system (without adding one doctor or clinic)

My house is in disarray. Physically and spiritually. Need to do some major cleaning this weekend on both.

I am feeling out of balance. Need to get Christ Centered in order to fight this battle.
Yes, Jesus is my healer. But I do have things I need to do to.

1. Pray first thing in the morning - might mean I have to wake up earlier.
2. Study His Word. Speak it aloud. Record it and play it back at night.
3. Pray for wisdom
4. Get my new eating down right.
5. Exercise.

Basically I need to get myself in order. That's where #1 above will actually take care of the rest.

BUT I am still excited. Still standing on the Rock that is higher than I. Still believing that by Jesus stripes I am healed. On earth as it is in heaven.

Still on fire to help others know the truth.

Be not deceived. We are in the last days. The anit-christ spirit is alive and well and deluding many of our Christian brother and sisters. I pray the Lord of the Harvest wake them up. I pray that He keep me awake and alive.

Verse of the day

Psalm 118:17

17 I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord.

Relaxing in the Son

The days are full of life and so am I. God is good. More than able to conquer anything that comes against me.

Since I took my stand of faith and am declaring that I am healed by the stripes of Jesus, ew there have come some EELS [enemy's evil lies] after me. Have an appointment with an Oncologist on April 3. The Dr called about a biopsy on a lymph node on my neck set up for tomorrow.

But no matter. I am healed. The healed of the Lord. Standing on His Word. not mine. For He is truth.

So, what am I up to?

Rejoicing in the sure Word of the Lord and feeling more alive than ever. I am excited to see what the Lord is going to do.

Fear not!  Again I say, and what's more - the Word of the Lord says fear not. We are to fear [reverence in holy awe] only God. God's perfect love cast out fear. For if I believe the Lord is for me, Loves me, what do I have to fear?

Fear is the enemy of faith.  Fear says God is not big enough, is lacking, or is withholding good from you. LIE

God gave us His Word that we can stand. For He is all capable, all loving, and my Rock.

I have been speaking His Word aloud. I record it on my phone and then play it back at night. Love it

I also speak to my right boob - "Boob, you are in mortal danger.  I will live but you better line up under the Word of God and kick some cancer butt."  [sorry if boob and butt offends you, but I am at war]

And I speak the Word to my body and soul and spirit. For the Word quickeneth to life.

Healing Scripture for the day

Psalm 118:17

17 I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord.

How can we so bold as to declare this?
God gave us His word. He likes it when we speak it back to Him. By Baptism I have already passed from life to death and into eternal life. The Life I live is in Christ already. So this is truth.

Okay prayer warriors and friends, I am putting on my armor and going out to see what the Lord would have me see and do. Hallelujah!

Praise the Lord always in all things giving thanksgiving because He is worthy.

Taking a Stand on the Rock

Faith day today.
Psalm 61:2
2 From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

The Rock that is higher than I. Jesus. His Word. His Promises. What he accomplished for us on the cross. Salvation. Healing. Restoration. All by His Blood shed for me and for whoever believes on Him.

Jesus taught us to pray:
Matthew 6:8-10
8 Be not ye therefore like unto them:
 for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.
9 After this manner therefore pray ye: 
Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

When I asked Jesus into  my heart, repented of my sins, I became a child of God.
For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; 
but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry,
Abba, Father.

Hallowed by Thy name. Sacred, Holy is God's Name.
Philippians 2
9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him [Jesus], 
and given him a name which is above every name:
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
 of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

Thy kingdom come Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

On the cross, Jesus declared - It is finished. God set His claim of dominion back over the earth. Wrestled it away from Satan and destroyed the works of the enemy taking the keys of hell and death that whoesever believe on Jesus should be saved.

God's will. How do we know it?  
His Word. Jesus, the Word of God, came in the flesh and dwelt among us. His Word. Jesus. Word of Life.
John 1
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

I am the healed of the Lord. By His stripes I was healed. Complete, whole. Jesus accomplished that on the cross. The Word of God is true.
Am I being brash and arrogant to declare that I am the healed of the Lord? No. I am merely saying what the Lord has said. Believing Him.

Matthew 21:22

22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer,
believing, ye shall receive.
Jeremiah 17:14
14 Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou art my praise.

SO this day, Faith Day, Sunday 03-17-13, I believe that I am the healed of the Lord. I confess I had squiggly areas of shaky faith where the 'what ifs' the 'and thens' the 'buts' assaulted me. But today. Today.I stand on the Rock that is Higher than I. Not by my might, power, or strength but by His Spirit and declare that I believe I am the healed of the Lord. No more doubts. My eyes and heart afixed on my Savior. On what He did for me and whoever believes. On the measure of Faith that He has given me, I stand. SURE. Undefeated. Victorious overcoming Faith that is a gift from God and agree with the Word of God. That as it is in heaven, so shall it be on earth. In me. 

And I praise Him. Glorify the Most High God. For in Him we have overcome the world.

Petscan Day

Well, today I was injected with radiation and sent into a donut so the docs could see if the nasty invaders have gone anywhere else.

Of course, the cancer is dead in Jesus Name.

This is the building the place I went to is attached to. I liked the idea of cyberknife. : )

I am thankful for people who work in the medical profession and ask that the Lord would touch them and bless them.

Overall, this morning was relaxing. Got there, had to wait a little and then went into a room where a really nice guy - who happens to be a believing Christian - injected me with the radioactive stuff. Then had to sit in the chair for an hour. Fell asleep with Jesus on my mind.

Then they wake me up and off to the donut we go. An impressive machine - Positron Emission Tomography that scanned me from eyes to thighs. Won't know the results for 24-48 hours and with the weekend in between maybe longer. Not worried. I am safe in the Shadow of the Most High.

Not scary at all. Piece of cake.

Then off to lunch we went.  Had steak and lobster with my sweet hubby. Steak is supposed to be good to get the radiation out.

Now it's back to the veggies.

A nice glass of Perfect Food - Raw - grass - taste like grass but in apple juice not so bad. Ate an apple - have to keep those doctors away : ) And my water.

My body hasn't seen this many fruits and veggies and water in 40 years. Or probably ever.

But I feel great!  After that radiation in me, I felt like I could leap tall buildings.  : )

I feel the hand of God on my head.
I can hear the whispers of prayers of my sweet friends, family and church going up to the Throne Room of God. Thank you all, your prayers are appreciated.
And I am flying on the Love of God.

Even though it took a death warrant from the enemy, I rejoice in My Lord that He has captured me. Set me on a high place and I am praising Him. Learning to walk in that newness of life. You can read about that in  my Devotion today.

God is Good!  NEVER forget that.
And Through Him we overcome the world and the devil.

Let the Son Shine in!

Nothing lights up the world like sunshine.
Nothing lights up my world like Sonshine.

I'm doing good. I know it should be well, but good just sounds better. Then again, WELL in the sense of wholeness - guess I should say - I am doing WELL!

I have a pet scan tomorrow - yes I will be a glowing! But only for a little while.

Haven't seen any difference yet. BUT faith is not seen it is the power to make it happen whether I see it or not.

By His stripes I was healed. Standing on that verse. And it is truth.

1 Peter 2:24
Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

Some like to say that healings stopped with the disciples. I don't think so. I've seen people healed.  And God is the same yesterday, today and forever. 

If that were true, a whole of the New Testament is sure wasted on things that don't matter anymore. 

Jesus went about doing good and destroying the works of the devil. And Jesus told us that 

John 14:12

12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
See, Jesus said he that believeth on Him.  Well, that is me and anyone else that believes Jesus is who he said He is.

What exciting times we have in store for us. Jesus is waking up His church. No longer is it going to be a building with programs. But A body of living stones doing exploits for the Lord and magnifying the Lord with hymns, psalms, and spiritual songs. The lame will walk, the blind see, the deaf hear, the oppressed be set free, and the dead raised.

And that is why I am so excited. What the enemy (devil) meant for a death warrant for me has been changed into an exciting hunger for life in Christ. God promises to work good out of everything. And He is. 

Just gotta love my Jesus and the plans He has for me and my friends and family and church and nation and this world. 

God is good.  Remember that.

Getting Things Straight

I'm feeling great. Believing I am healed. And so excited  in the things of the Lord. He is showing me amazing things. His Word has come alive for me again. I feel His strength and love and am excited to see what He has in store for me.

BUT first, I have some cleaning to do.  The other day our septic stopped up on the bathroom my 91 yr old Father in Law and his Visiting Angels use. I was about to feel blah when the Lord provided a rainbow for me. I could see the entire arc and ends. God is good. His promise that HE is there no matter what you are going through.

Yep, have to call one of these guys to come and take care of the septic. The Lord will provide.

But more than my septic system needing cleaning, my heart needs some major work.  So I am calling out to the Lord :

Psalm 51:10
Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me.

Breast cancer is often caused by bitterness and unforgiveness. 

Bitter and unforgiving? I pondered that, Didn't sound like me. Really? Was there a mistaken attack? I really didn't qualify for the bitter unforgiving label. 

Hmm, It didn't take long and the Lord reminded me there is the whole half of the country I had deemed 'idiot' for electing the president we now have. And then there is the matter of that man in the White House and congress. 

Oops - I have a lot of repenting to do. A lot of forgiving to do. It doesn't matter if I am 'right' and they so wrong in my eyes. That comes from eating of the Tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil. The tree that bears the fruit that brings death. 

What matters is am I totally submitted to the Lord? 
Honestly, no. I see that there are things I am hanging onto. Rights. Humor trips me up, but I love funny. MINE, ugh that selfish side of me. And the worst -pride. And I am sure more cobwebs and dirt that I don't recognize yet.

I do desire to be wholly sold out to the Lord. It is a process, and the Lord is merciful and with His Grace I will submit to Him. So that is my top priority right now. 

How will I go about cleaning my heart - Read the Word. Washing of the word. Eating the Bread of Life and surrendering. 

God is good.

On the medical merry-go-round side - I have a Petscan Wed. at 8:20 am

Appreciate your prayers. I'm not worried or afraid. Just another of those things to do.  


Proverbs 16:24

 Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.

A Farmin' did I Go : )

Whew, I feel like a farmer after going to Super Kroger and harvesting $195 worth of healthy foods. Organic is expensive, but  that would only be 12 times eating out. Plus I did get coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil, and flax seed oil, toothpaste, and shampoo - I wouldn't be buying those every week.

Just finished my berry smoothy.  Yummm. Now that is good.  Later I'll  make a veggie drink.

I am sure my body is wondering what in the world is going on.  No cokes or junk food. I've drank more water in 2 weeks than I have had in years. I am sure those cancer cells are cringing.  I can see them all huddled like the insects in a RAID commercial.  Hehe

Look what I found on FB yesterday.



Let truth rule and reign in your heart, and be done with the presumption that  
comes with projecting yourself into the future.  No matter how much you  think 
you know about what is ahead, you only have a glimpse of that which has  not yet 
become reality.  And, the truth will be exaggerated and distorted  by your 
imagination.  It will benefit you greatly if you can get real and  stay real 
right here and now, says the Lord.

Had to laugh and thank the Lord. These prophetic words have somewhat followed this journey I am on.  

I am excited. God is working things out to good. My family is coming alive. Not just eating healthy but feasting on the Word of God. For the Bread of Life is what makes me alive. God's Living Word.  


John 6:63

63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

Feast on the Word of God. Strengthen your inner man and watch your faith grow strong. 

Live Abundantly!

Single-minded or Double Trouble!

Big ooops last night. Not sure what possessed me, but I got on the internet last night and looked at cancer things.  I know, not a bright move on my part. I am not saying researching things is bad, but really. I did myself no good being there.

Did I say I really don't like going to doctors?  I don't. Actually I have little faith at all in the medical system.

I did ask the surgeon after he told me I would have to have radiation, "Doesn't radiation cause cancer?"

"Uh, well yes it can. But the benefit outweighs the risk." Good Dr said.

Not saying DR are bad or people shouldn't go to them. I am going to them. BUT they have their place.

So, why did I go on the internet last night.

I will tell you why.  I was going down healing street when I came across doubt lane. I promptly turned and tried to go down both.  Well, that just doesn't do well. Can't get far if you're going back and forth.

James 1:8
A double minded man (or crazy lady) is unstable in all his ways.

I whipped my car around and headed back down Healing Street. I trust in the Lord. He will always do good. 

Psalm 103:1-3

 Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

See, I am blessing the Lord. 
And happily riding down the single minded road.

Keep your thought toward the Lord. Toward the Truth and stand.   
I have lots to do to shore up my faith and keep it on the straight and narrow.

One thing - keep studying His Word. Feed my spirit.
Do what I can to get my body healthy by eating right. No cokes, no sugar.

I am excited for what the Lord is doing. 
Praise the Lord. 

Forward on the straight and narrow!

The Latest

Well, my sweet, awesome husband and I went to talk to the surgeon yesterday. Had to confess that yes, I am a  medical delinquent. No excuses.

He said he thought he would have to take off my right breast. A mastectomy [I'm telling my boob to hang in there. God's healing you.] Anyway the surgery is not until April which is fine with me because I want to go to Florida to visit Jim's sister.  The Dr looked at me and said, "you are coming back?"

LOL  Told him my word was good and I'd be back.

In the meantime, I am reading the Word of God and being so filled with life that I'm not sure my friends can stand me : )  But I am on fire. God has awakened me. And I cling to Him. His Word has once again come alive. So much so that I have to stop and just shout Hallelujah when I  read it.

I am alive!

Amazing that the enemy comes to give me a warrant for my death, and God intervenes and I have never felt more alive.

The other day the Lord told me - "I have ordered your steps. Fear Not. Trust Me. Walk it out and I will walk with you. Rejoice. Fear not the path still in shadow. You will be pleasantly surprised. Rejoice and lead others to life."

God is so good. My life is hid in Christ. I died in Baptism and have risen with Christ. Read Romans and chew on His word.  So deep  So Alive.

SO I am doing good. Proclaiming His Word.

Also looking into nutritional ideas to help my body recover from my diet of cokes and hamburgers and sittin like a lump.  No more.  Good foods are going in and I am moving. I no longer live to eat but am eating to live. My stomach is no longer the ruler of me.  I am submitted to the Lord.

Look at our culture - the only thing we do is eat together.  WE are a country that lives to eat. No wonder we are fat. So for me - no more cokes - 2 weeks now. My body has had more veggies and fruit in the last two weeks than its seen in years.

God bless you all.

3 John 1:2  Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health even as thy soul prospereth.

Hope and Faith

Hope is not a wish. Hope is as solid as cement. It is not based on a wish on a star or before you blow out birthday candles. NO - Hope is tangible. Rock solid trust from the spirit. Hope lives in your core. Gives strength to you from the inside out.

In Strong's concordance - hope is defined as the expectation of good. Expected good, not a wimpy 'hope so'  But a strong I expect it to be.

Faith in Strong's means the conviction of the truth of a matter. Belief.

Hope and Faith are backed by God's Word.

Hebrews 11:1

11 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

We have good reason to fear not.  FAITH and HOPE

Now there are things that undermine our faith and hope
Faith stealers  
1. Negative thinking - confessing doom, bad reports rather than the Word of God
2. Not Reading the Word of God but wallowing in the lust and dust of the world.
3. Surrounding yourself with those who do not believe.
4. Knowledge without wisdom - 
5. Believing the EELs - Enemy's Evil Lies
6. Failure to spend time with the Lord
7. Fear is the biggest faith stealer there is. A believer should only fear God.

Instead - build up your faith and hope 
1. Read the Word of God and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal things you need to know.
2. Surround yourself with those who can believe and pray the prayer of faith
3. Immerse yourself in the things of God. 
4. Take the Lord's communion and ask if there be anything you need to repent of or anyone you need to ask forgiveness of.
5. Stir up the faith God has given you. For faith is a gift.  Eph 2:8
6. Put on the whole armor of God
7. Resist the devil
8. Write down the promises of God - scriptures that speak to your heart
9. Meditate on those. Memorize them. Speak them aloud. Record them and listen to yourself state the truth.
10. Rejoice, Praise the Lord, rejoice

Go boldly rejoicing in the Lord. For in Him we live and will not be defeated.


1 John 5:4

For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

Bread of Life

And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

A good day today. Woke up early and met one of my best friends and we headed over to pick up a load of veggies from the co-op. But was it ever freezing.  BRRRR! 30 degrees and the wind blowing.
I know, if you live in the north that's nothing, but to Texas girls, that's cold.

Made myself and hubby a good juice drink of veggies and some fruit. Yum sort of. But it's healthy, right?

Then later in the day, the attack came.  The enemy took advantage of me and gave me a chill. Then he sent his EELS  - the Enemy's Evil Lies - to torment me.

The hissing evil lies went like this - you're going to catch a cold. 
                                     if you can't fight thru a cold and a headache what is cancer going to do you?
                                     you are doomed 

Well, I am not sick and feel better. But what happened?  I've been on a Jesus high for over a week. Where did it go?

The answer came to me - I had not fed on the Word of God. I'd run off in the morning and never fed on the Bread of Life.

So lesson learned - don't leave home without partaking of the Bread of Life. I need the Word of God  I need to commune with my Lord to start my day.  This is not a fight I will win on my own. But by His Spirit.

Now, I am reading the book I bought - Bible healing study course by Kenneth E. Hagin.  I'm on ch 2

I have some  big decisions to make in the coming weeks. And I need God's wisdom for sure.
God is my life. My life is hid in Christ.  Apart from Him I can do no good thing.

I will not leave home without my armor on.  [Eph 6]

Hallelujah!!  God is good!


Matthew 8:17

17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.

Jesus took our infirmities and sickness upon Himself. He already lifted them from our shoulders. We no longer need to be subject to the works of the devil. Jesus defeated him.

Love, No Fear, and Tears

Love is all around. See the heart in this flower? God loves me. THAT I know. And the Bible does tell me so. Notice the heart looks like two tears put together.  Just saw that. : )

I won't shed one tear in fear to the nasty blob that has invaded me. All that enemy is going to see is the  mighty Hand of God coming after it. Squeezing the life out of each rebellious wicked cell until it is dead!!!

I hate to cry, but the one thing that brings me to instant tears is the mighty and fearless love of God and my family and friends who love me. That is humbling. And I do desire to be humble before the Lord. Yikes better start carrying Kleenex with me.

Tears spring forth even as I am writing this. I am blessed. And again I say blessed richly in the love of my family and friends. Can't buy that, Priceless.

Went to Baylor Jones Katz Breast Health Center and met with a navigation nurse who explained about breast cancer and the options available. She was a believer and a blessing. Found out she had downloaded my book, Liberty Belle, on kindle.  How cool is that.

The invading blob is a mean one. A grade 3, estrogen receptors, Ki67 at 30%, a few other things they don't know until surgery.  NO FEAR!  Mean or not this blob is dead.  DOA.  The enemy's plans are dead.

My life is hid in Christ and no one, or thing, is going to take it early. In Jesus Name!

I meet with the surgeon March 5th.  So pray that he has wisdom from on high.

I am blessed, joyful, confident of victory, and ... blessed!

Love my friends.
Today I was riding on the wings of their prayers and I know it!
My arms outstretched, face turned to the living God, and filled with joy.

Know this - God is good.  Never forget that. No matter what you are going through - God is good, And He holds your hand in His as you walk through the journey set before you.

God does not put disease on you. He does allow it but does not initiate it.  We have a formidable enemy in Satan, but he was defeated by the Son of God, Jesus.  So Fear Not. God promises to work it for good.
 Romans 8:28 God promises to work all things out to good for those called according to His purpose.

We fight this enemy not by might, not by power, but by His Spirit.
