God Reinforces His Promises!

Since I personally have recurrent but asymptomatic prostate cancer, I have my PSA checked every four months.  Thinking back to similar experiences over the past twenty years, this regular PSA testing usually was accompanied by some degree of anxiety, fear and pleas to God that the results would be positive.  While some degree of apprehension or anticipation could be considered as  normal, I have been steadily progressing in my faith journey leaving my condition in God’s hand and getting to the point where I can truly say “not my will by Thine be done.”  Last week was a day of testing.  Over the years, God has given me the ministry opportunity and I believe an assignment to write this website and share my journey with others.  Remembering what He specifically promised me as recorded in the April 30th, 2015 video blog, He said “You (me) keep sharing your ministry and I’ll (Jesus) take care of your body.”  So last week as I am driving to my doctor’s office to get my blood drawn for my PSA test, I passed a local Methodist church whose pastor had written his upcoming sermon topic for the upcoming Sunday on the church signpost.  In big, unmistakable letters, it read “God Keeps His Promises.”  I praised and thanked the Lord  for this unexpected reinforcing message and took my test with a calm, submissive spirit.  By the way, the PSA result was very positive when it could have been otherwise.  As James 1:2-4 states, “Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance, and let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete lacking in nothing.”  My medical journey with “the Great Physician” continues.
