A Positive Development?

An interesting thing is happening with whatever  is blocking the closing of the wound. The wound Dr., after first saying it was a hematoma, said that it probably was the sarcoma.   Well, today, as the nurse was carefully cleaning it with saline solution wound cleaner, it began to come loose.  Startled, she said, “I don’t know what to do with it.” Dan and I both said, “Don’t touch it!” Her supervisor, the Head Nurse, comes tomorrow.  She will know what to do.

We can’t imagine it is the sarcoma. When we have the C-T Scan report , we’ll know how much of the bulge is sarcoma and how much is fluid. Dan did not feel well most of today, but was up for awhile, even washed the juicer, rested again.  We are happy that he is able to eat his meals with us.  This has been  challenging because Dan was doing rather well before we left Texas.

Now he is resting with eyes shut as I watch darkness settle on the giant Monterey Cypresses reaching up to the heavens outlined with the rich shades of red, orange, pink escorting the sun to the other side of the globe.  God is God and we are His servants.  The cross we have been given to bear is rough and heavy, yet we have all that we need and more.  

Tonight the Lord again gave me  Jeremiah 35:14 – 39:18. The message I heard again and again is that those who do not follow God’s Word will be removed from God.  And, as God said to Jeremiah, “I will rescue you on that day….I will save you….you will escape with your life because you trust in me.”  Jeremiah 39:18.  To trust Him, you must know Him. To truly know Him, you must be a student of His Word.  If you are a faithful student of His Word, you will come to love Him deeply and follow Him.  — Anne and Dan

    “Keep me as the apple of Your eye (Psalm 17:8).” God values you very much and you are the center of His world right now! God values you, God made you, God blesses you, and God gives you the strength that you need each day to overcome every battle. God watches over every detail of your life each and every day, because you are very special to God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.

    “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power (Ephesians 6:10).” Everyone feels weak, tired, discouraged, and small sometimes during challenging times in our lives. However, you are undefeated because you believe in Jesus. You walk in victory, simply because you love the Lord God of heaven, the Lord Jesus Christ, and are filled with Holy Spirit power. Since you love God and Jesus, you have already defeated all of Satan’s attacks on your lives. Because when we feel weak, that is when Jesus is really strong!

    Choose determined joy in the power of His Mighty Strength, because Nehemiah teaches Christians the power that defeats our Enemy [Satan] is joy, instead of worried sadness. Nehemiah says, ” . . . do not be grieved, for the joy of the Lord is your strength (Nehemiah 8:10-RSV).” How do we have this supernatural joy? The apostle John explains, “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that overcomes the world, our faith (1 John 5:4-RSV).”

    Jesus teaches Christians how we can have supernatural joy with peace because He is in control of everything that happens in our lives. And, Jesus has already defeated Satan’s hurt. Jesus says, “I have said this to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world (John 16:33-RSV).” Joy defeats grief. Joy defeats sadness. Joy defeats Satan. We have joy in the fact that God loves believers all the time, Jesus saves us everyday, and our home is in heaven forever with God and Christ. “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain any more, for the former things have passed away (Revelation 21:4-RSV).”

    Love to you,
    Sherrie H.
