I've thought about blogging several times tonight and wasn't sure if I would do it or not. I selfishly wanted to ask for prayer for my round #5 of chemo tomorrow. If I am serious about honoring the Lord in my circumstances then why wouldn't I ask for prayer. My prayer is that all will go well tomorrow and that the side effects will stay away but also that I might be able to be a witness to those the Lord puts in my path. I cannot go on my own strength and fight this battle and let my light shine for Him, I need God's full armor around me. Ephesians 6:13-20 "Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. to that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak." Only God knows what tomorrow holds and I am trusting Him completely to direct my steps and to watch over my life.
"Today is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it."
I'm still here! Barely!
