I Know What I Heard!

(From Journal #1: February 26, 2005)
I saw the doctor yesterday and my bone marrow is clear! Praise You, Lord! We went over treatment options. We’re going to do an immunotherapy treatment called Rituxan. I am so grateful not to do hard chemo and radiation! I prayed for the doctor to have Solomon-like wisdom and I trust You are working through him. I will take this treatment in faith. There isn’t much data since it’s a new concept to take this drug alone, without chemo. God’s data is perfect and I trust You, Lord.
The most amazing thing happened! As I’ve been reading Your Word, Matthew 10:27 really spoke to me about the voice I heard whisper in my ear after surgery: “What I tell you in the dark, speak in the daylight; what is whispered in your ear, proclaim from the roofs.” And then, I started thinking about how Jacob wrestled with the angel of God and the angel touched his hip and wrenched it, leaving him with a limp. As I meditated on Matthew 10:27 and this story of Jacob, I asked You if this pain in my shoulder was a confirmation for me to KNOW that what I heard whispered in my ear was in fact an angel, in spite of the diagnosis I had received? I literally felt the warmth of the Holy Spirit in my body and then the pain was gone! Lord, thank You!
I’ve been condemning myself for even telling anyone about what I heard since the diagnosis came back as lymphoma, and that I am a “bad witness” for You. But You have given this amazing confirmation as to what I heard. I may not understand, but I still believe the lymph nodes are benign regardless of the diagnosis. I don’t care what anyone thinks. I believe You and only want Your Name to be glorified as healer.
Hebrews 10:23: “Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful.”
Hebrews 11:1: “Now faith is the substance of what we hope for, the evidence of what we do not see.”
Isaiah 7:9: “…If you do not stand firm in your faith, you will not stand at all.”
Psalm 119:116: “Uphold me according to Your Word, that I may live; and do not let me be ashamed of my hope.”
Hallelujah, wonderful news! They now have so many new drugs now that are working like never before, and with the Power of the Lord, I know you will be well! I love you my sister and friend and hold you close in my heart! Candee
As I tell my story, it’s amazing to see how treatments have evolved and changed in many areas.
You are such a strong witness for Him! We continue to trust and hold you in our prayers. Love you so much!
Love you, too!
Your faith is incredible. I am inspired by it and thank you for being so open and honest. May our Heavenly Father wrap His loving arms around you and carry you through what is next.
Thank you, Lynne. Hard to believe I’ve been on this journey for so many years and still fighting. Reliving the years through my journals is a testament to God’s faithfulness. Thank you for reading my story.
