The JOY of Knowing In Whom We Believe

Came home last night from one of our last choir practices for the Inland Crusade (which I will give you LOT'S of info about in....3 days) to get news that my cousin, Sharon Chance, has cancer of the spine. Sharon is the wife of Reverend Mike Chance of San Antonio, Tx. She has had cancer before and God stepped on the scene and healed her. This time there is a tumor around her spine and the cancer has spread into the spine. If you know the Chance's of San Antonio, or even if you don't, please, PLEASE be praying for the God who is in control of ALL things to step on the scene again and give her a miraculous healing!!!

Thinking about God and the fact that HE IS in control, I feel so assured that no matter what direction this situation may take, Sharon will be healed! I am sure you have heard this before, but my Pastor has often stated that when God chooses to not heal a person here on earth who has lived for Him but to call them home, that person has recieved their ULTIMATE healing! Think about that! Pain on earth is GONE and they are in the PRESENCE of ALMIGHTY GOD, rejoicing and praising and singing and dancing!!! You can't help but reJOYce (I know, spelling, but you know I keep putting JOY in all my titles and I couldn't resist :) ) to know that your loved one is in a MUCH better place!

However, at the same time, I stop to look over my life and make sure that I have done all I can to be right with HIM and to be ready for when He calls ME home. If you have stopped by this blog and aren't a Believer, take time today to read the Bible and to find a church that preaches Truth. To preach the Truth means that the minister preaches and teaches STRAIGHT from the Word of God and that he doesn't only choose what is convenient to his way of thinking!! Take time, sit down, get a cup of Java, and immerse yourself in the Word today! You too can know in whom you believe!

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent and be baptized every one of you for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

God bless you and keep you until we meet again.
