Something Good Is Going To Happen To You!

Today after reading my bible and spending time with the Lord, I was again reminded of how much He truly loves us.  I was reminded of where I was last year at this time as I was preparing to have surgery.  There are so many terrifying aspects of cancer.  Nobody is able to tell you exactly what is going to happen.  They can give you their best guess, they can tell you what would happen in a perfect world, they can go on and on and on and still tell you basically nothing.  

Cancer surgery on the lung is absolutely terrifying! Nobody else can really know how you feel unless they have gone through the same ordeal.  As Senator Kennedy said "Cancer is like being a member of an exclusive club that nobody want to become a member of".  When you are lying on that gurney and you are faced with your own mortality there are so many what ifs and if onlys that run through your mind.  I cannot even imagine going through cancer without being a christian.  

Talking to God was one of the few things that brought me peace.  That day while lying on that gurney I heard the voice of God.  He told me "The Breath of Heaven is holding you in His arms" I looked around the operating room and the doctors were both busy preparing for my surgery.  I thought to myself did they hear that?  I heard it just as plain as day.  I whispered back to Him, Lord I hear you I'm not afraid anymore.  I will totally trust in you.  The next thing that I remember was opening my eyes and my surgeon telling me that somebody up there liked me.  He told me that he had gotten all of the cancer.  He told me that it was like my cancer had been encased in glass.  He said that it was right next to all of the lymph nodes in the center of my chest and it didn't spread to them.  He seemed amazed by all of this.  I was just thankful that I serve a very loving God who has never let me down. 

I was told that my cancer was a mixture of small and non small cell cancer.  Small cell cancer is the most dangerous kind and should have spread through my lung and killed me.  Lucky for me that The Living God  that I serve is more powerful then cancer.  My God is more powerful then death!  The Lord told me during that very hard time this.  "Our Father who art in heaven hallowed be thy name.  Thy kingdom come thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.   The part on earth as it is in heaven kept on coming into my mind.  I thought to myself, wait a minute there is no cancer in heaven.  There is no disease at all in heaven.  God was letting me know that through faith I as a christian had a bible right to my healing on earth as it is in heaven.  

What did I do next?  I planted seed.  The ministry that I chose was Oral Roberts.  I couldn't sleep after I got my diagnosis and I would channel surf on the TV.  I saw them one night on The Place For Miracles.  With Richard and Lindsay Roberts.  They are very sincere and the Lord works through their ministry.  So I had found good ground to plant my seed.  The next thing I did was to identify the purpose for sowing my seed.  In my case it was to heal my cancer.  Then I spoke out loud in faith that I was believing God for my healing.  Then I thoroughly expected my miracle.  In Genesis 8:22 it says:  "While the earth remains, seed time and harvest shall not cease.  I called the Abundant Life Prayer Group several times so that we could agree in prayer together for my miracle.  I wasn't purchasing a healing.  I was obeying God's word.  All through the bible He talks about seed faith. Galatians 6:7  "Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sow, that he will also reap". 

Oral Roberts used to always say, "Something good is going to happen to you" and he was so right.  God happened to me!  He filled me so full of the Holy Spirit that I was running over with joy in Him.  He changed my life and told my cancer not to move.  He told my cancer not to spread and let me tell you something when God tells cancer something, cancer listens!  My cancer didn't move, it didn't spread.  They did an MRI after my surgery (lung cancer is known to spread to the brain).  No cancer.  They did a bone scan and guess what no cancer.  Hey guess what?   I serve a great God who loves me and cares for me!  Hallelujah!

Tonight is Friday night and it is date night!  I never cook on Friday so we usually go out to eat.  I think tonight we are going to Mochino Chy.  They have all you can eat Maine Lobster and different raw fish dishes that I adore!  Right at the Aloha Tower.  I will let you know what I think of the food after we eat there.  If any of you guys have a date night let me know what you do.  I love hearing about what other couples do for their date nights!  One thing I always try to do is to find something loving to say to my honey that will make him feel really good about himself.  It always comes back to me cause then he says something super loving back to me.   I think that is why we have been happily married for almost 32 years.  I hope all of you have a great weekend!
