My last round of chemo (on 9/22) was really rough, and I've been pretty sick ever since. But tonight I felt much of the sickness lift, and I am feeling much better. Praise God!
I have a CT scan coming up on 10/13, and I ask for your continued prayers and belief with me that it will show I am cancer free.
Also, I have spent time the last 2 nights answering email. I am down to 177 in my inbox! I want you to know that if you have written to me, I HAVE read it. I read every single email. If you have sent me a Scripture, I am working now to put them into a Word document that I will keep with me for quick reference. If you have sent me an encouraging song or video, I have either watched/listened or added it to my list of things to watch/listen. I appreciate every encouragement, and even more than that I need them. There's a verse in Isaiah (41:13) that I've been meditating on which says: For I am the LORD, your God,
who takes hold of your right hand
and says to you, Do not fear;
I will help you.
One of the ways God is holding my hand and helping me is through all of you. Through your prayers, encouragement, belief and unending hope I am given strength. It is with this strength that I continue to battle the fight for my life...the fight that I will WIN. I am "hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed." (2 Corinthians 4:8-9) The Word of God says that I am more than a conqueror through Jesus who loves me (Romans 8:37), so who am I to question that or to think any differently.
Praise you Lord that your Word is TRUE!
