~ I Am A Work In Progress~

This morning I had a wonderful time in the Lord!  I awoke and the first scripture which came to my mind was: 
 "This is the day the Lord has made let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm." 118-24.
I am going to rejoice in the Lord today and feel His joy in my soul.  When someone upsets you sometimes you have to ask yourself is this worth losing my joy in the Lord?  Is it?  Only you can answer that.  I say no.  I am not going to give away my joy in the Lord Jesus.  I may stumble and fall as a Christian woman, but thankfully Jesus Christ is always there to love me through it and forgive my sins.  I have never claimed to be a pastor and if I have written anything here that has offended anyone I am truly sorry.  I am just a Christian woman who loves Jesus with all her mind, body and spirit.  I am a cancer survivor who was healed by God and finds it therapeutic to write about the struggles I go through as a result.

"We are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."  Ephesians 2:10

The Lord has taught me many things through having cancer.  One is that life here on earth is extremely short.  When you are faced with the life and death the way that cancer patients are you learn to make the most of your life.  I find that I don't have time in my life for negativity.  My Heavenly Father does not dwell on the times that I have been knocked down or my faults.  I feel like God sees the best in me.  I may not always control my temper the way God would like me to and yes sometimes I slip and say things I truly wish I had never said and for that I truly apologize to anyone that i may have offended and ask the Lord God to forgive me as well.

I truly believe that I am a work in progress as it were.  I am not perfect and the last time I checked no one else is either.  The only perfect person that ever walked the face of this earth was Jesus Christ.  I am totally sinful and have to fall on my knees to the Lord everyday and beg His forgiveness.  As a work in progress I know that God is changing me everyday.  I read my Bible every day and go to God in prayer everyday.  I am like a baby in Christ growing and learning.  It will continue to grow for the rest of my life.

  I praise God for all He has taken me through.  "As we who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lords glory, are being transformed into His likeness with ever increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the spirit." 2 Corinthians 3:18.  Do I get discouraged?  Of course I do.  Don't we all?  Do I think I have a long long way to go?  Absolutely! That is when I just go back to God's word:  "The path of righteousness is like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever brighter till the full light of day."  Proverbs 4:18.  Sometimes I think about how much more I have to learn and how much farther I have to go, but then I Look back and see how far the Lord has brought me. I  thank God that I am not what I used to be and look forward to a bright, healthy and happy future in the Lord Jesus Christ. God Bless you!

Ice read your blogs for a few weeks now and have been lazy to comment until now. I couldn't resist commenting on this entry. You have not once said u were a preacher and you are not offensive whatsoever. You use your blog to share your day to day life and experience with cancer and the Lord Jesus Christ. You are inspirational having survived lung cancer, anyone who would tell you otherwise is out of their gourd. Don't listen to the dittys and fools and heretics my dear. You are a good writer who I've read helps people think about, come back to, and rejoice in the Lord Jesus Christ

I'm a Jewish mother and people like you make me belive mire and more that Jesus was The Messiah. Nothing offensive about your writing, it's all very thoughtful and well written . Don't allow scoffers or hateful dimwits keep you from worshiping and praising Abba.

Stop apologizing woman, you did nothing wrong to apologize for.

אלוהים יברך אותך כל מה שאתה אומר ועושה. במאי המילים שאתה כותב לאחרים לעזור.
אנחנו כל עבודה בתהליך. אלוהים אוהב אותך

this Hebrew for May God bless you in all you say and do. May the words you write help others. We are all a work in progress. God loves you.

Sorry English isn't great but just want to say you did nothing wrong and may you be blessed. Yeshua may be the Messiah as my aunt Mathilda said. I belive he be pleased with you.

May God richly bless you in all you say and do! I can only say Hallelujah!

I am a Messianic Jew and I was emailed a link to your page. I have to say that I am very pleased with what you write. I enjoy hearing your experiences and how God is there throughout all of your ups and downs. What Y'honatan wrote above is accurate and I second that!

Lord help me and heal me from thinking negative thoughts about any person who would try to keep you from loving God and from talking about your struggles and how HE in his almighty righteousness saved you and helped you through it. All you are doing is helping to spread THE GOOD NEWS through your life experiences. Lady, don't let the wind of hate keep you from writing about the Lord. The wind of the evil will try to blow you with it's gusts, walk against the wind and stay on the path towards Jesus.

You are in the clear Kelekia, you did nothing to apologize for!

Don't be ashamed to tell your story and share your life and faith!! Let yourself shine and be proud of how far you've come with Gods help for your glory and rejoicing to Him and in Him is His glory too. Remember the childhood song " this little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine..." let your light shine and keep helping people and bringing people closer to God. Jesus loves you just the way you are, we know it because the Bible tells us so!!!

JEsus is nOt ReAl right, he coudln't be, wasn't he just in a movie? o_O

This is beautiful and you are amazing, don't let anyone stop you from sharing God's mysteries and miracles in your life.

To Anonymous @12:06 PM,
In response to your comment, The "Jesus" that you saw in the movie was portrayed by a human actor.
Yes Jesus is real and He loves you so much! If you want a relationship with Jesus all you have to do is ask Him into your heart as your Lord and savior. and ask Him to forgive your sins. He will, then get a Bible and read it every day. Get into a good church where you live where the Gospel is preached and talk to the Pastor, he can help answer any questions you may have about Jesus Christ. Never ever doubt that Jesus is alive! You will never be alone with Him living inside you! God Bless You!!!
