"Thank You Lord"
I am a 73
year old woman, my husband and I just celebrated our 53rd wedding anniversary
in 2003. We have 5 children, 18 grandchildren and 1 great grandson. I
was born again or saved at the age of 9, but in my teen age years did
not always remain true to the Lord, but I know He never left me, neither
did He forsake me. Shortly after we were married both my husband (who
also chose the world's ways for a time) and I rededicated our lives to
the Lord and have tried all these years to walk faithfully with Him.
I read that
book through many, many times. I would listen to healing messages on our
cassette players in the car and in the house. I would use ear phones to
listen at night when I was awake so I wouldn't disturb my husband. I thank
God that I did, because this knowledge went down into my spirit and built
my faith, and would prove life saving in my latter years.
On January l0th, 1990 I began passing large blood clots and went to the Dr. where tests determined that cancer was present. On January 24th I had a complete hysterectomy and the surgeon's first words to me upon entering my room the next morning were, "It's bad, it's really bad!"
ask him any questions as I knew this was a critical moment and that I
needed to watch what I said and to be careful of what I heard. He told
me he would let me go home for one week and then start radiation for 5
days a week, for a duration of 6 weeks. He sent someone up to me from
the Oncology Dept. with a lot of material to read. I never read it. I
told my husband when he came, to throw it all away at home. Proverbs 4
tells us we need to guard our heart for out of it flow the issues of life,
and I didn't need to read that which would cause fear, doubt and unbelief.
While lying there waiting for the doctor to come, I looked at the clock and said to myself, "It is 11 o'clock and I am not sick anymore." Upon examining me, the doctor was unable to find anything wrong and sent me home in two days. In talking to a friend after I got home, she told me she had been burdened to pray for me when I went in, and at 11o'clock the Lord spoke to her heart that she could quit praying for me, all was well.
When I went
back for my six week checkup, he saw I had cancelled all of my treatments.
He told me he didn't want me to think him unkind, but with or without
the radiation I didn't have long to live. I told him I was believing God
for His healing miracle. I have not been back to him since.
It is 13 &1/2 years later and I never tire of praising Him for Who He Is and What He Does. I know for a fact that Jesus is our Healer!
