Everyone comes across 'Goliaths' along life's journey that stomped fear and intimidation into one's soul from the get-go. Last winter in the privacy of my own bedroom in the wee hours of the morning a discovery of a the new giant appeared in my life and bellowed his name... "HERE I AM... MY NAME IS CANCER AND I AM GOING TO FINALLY GET YOU AND IT WON'T BE PRETTY!" My 'journey uncommon' began that December of 2010 morning, and 'to date' I am sure who the winner is REALLY going to be! I've read the end of the Book and God wins. So far I am 6 months into the trek with this Goliath called 'cancer' and so this true tale begins.
Last January of 2011 I was given a diagnosis of breast cancer... still in a 'borderline' small stage & non-aggressive... prepare for surgeries in the near future. Part of me, the numb and in shock part of me, was being swept along the wave of appointments and shaking my head up and down in agreement with 'the medical experts'. I was told NOT to look online for information, but that was a too late instruction. I have been an alternative enthusiast for about 10 years. I scheduled the first surgery twice and cancelled twice. This cancer had metasized to a lymph node and a few other areas lit up on the PET scan.
Before I had my core biopsy I was led by my usual daily Psalm reading to Psalm 118:17-
"I will not die instead I will live and TELL the works of the Lord." Okay, God is on my side and this is part of the plan.
I clung to that scripture for many months. I embarked on taking several alternative type supplements and protocols. I debated with God and myself about what I really had faith in for healing. I had a dream to inspire others to challenge conventional medical treatments of cancer AND how could I have a testimony if I take the typical path women take with such a diagnosis?
A short while ago the Lord gave me another scripture in Psalms 103:2,3
I will bless the Lord, oh my soul, and forget not ALL his benefits- who forgives all my iniquities and heals all my diseases.
Forgiving and healing are in the hands of the Lord!
