Joy, Joy, Joy…down in my heart, down in my heart today! That is the song playing in my mind this morning as I finally received some very good news!

I am still in the hospital to deal with the open wound situation, hoping to go home in a day or 2. BUT… I had a Chest CT yesterday to check out the situation in my lungs! Friends, those tumors are a shrinking!!! Praise the Lord for his goodness and mercy!

I know that the chemo is killing the tumors but I also know that my savior and his healing power are at work in my body! I know that the multitude of prayers that all of you have lifted up have been heard! Thank You!

Specifically, there are 3 nodules in my lungs. All have been reduced by half or more. So, we have to concentrate on getting this open wound situation handled so I can begin having chemo again. The doctors are still discussing exactly how to do that. I continue to pray that God would anoint them with wisdom to make these determinations and continue to heal my body.

As I have said before, I know that God has a purpose in all of this to minister to others, not just me. I know he is calling me to fulfill his purpose for me on this earth. I share my journey through all of this that he would be glorified and that others would be encouraged to seek him first. It doesn’t matter where you have been, who you have been, or what you have been. Nothing is too far gone or too hard for God. He will meet you where you are and bear your burdens and give you peace.

“And I shall say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you, seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened to you” Luke 11:9
