Another Gut Punch!

(From Journal #8: December 13, 2006)
Yesterday was my first round of immunotherapy again. What a long day. Left the house at 7:30 a.m. and didn’t get home until almost 6:00 p.m. I had another allergic reaction, so that slowed things down. But this reaction wasn’t as severe as last time, so I am grateful.
My last CT scan report obviously wasn’t what I was believing for. The lymph nodes that had previously shrunk had grown and a few more lymph nodes in that vicinity were larger. I’m not going to try and pretend with You because You know the truth anyway. I was disappointed and not excited about having to do treatments again. The enemy has tried to bring frightening thoughts to my mind, but I refuse to listen. I will take this treatment with the same faith as before!
I see how my quiet time with You keeps getting interrupted; the enemy knows “interruption and distraction” are his greatest weapons. I need the Word before my eyes as well as in my ears. “Seeing is believing” and I need to “see” the Word as well as “hear” it. His goal is to keep me from everything that increases my faith. Help me to not cooperate with his schemes.
I know the truth and the truth shall set me free. I will not let go of my confidence. You are faithful. Any thoughts that come into my mind contrary to Your Word, I resist in Jesus’ Name!
Romans 10:17: So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Proverbs 4:20-22: My son, pay attention to what I say; turn your ear to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to one’s whole body.
John 8:31-32: And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
