Well, today is January 17th. My dear husband had a colonoscopy done last Friday (the 11th) and three polyps were found, two of which were removed during the procedure. The other one, however, was too large to remove. A biopsy was done on the remaining polyp and we were told that if it came back negative, we would receive a card in the mail – otherwise the doctor would call my husband. At 12:40, he received a call from the doctor requesting to see him at 3:30 tomorrow.

So how do I feel about all of this? If I were to say that I am not apprehensive, I would be lying. But I am going to trust in my Lord and Saviour because He loves us and nothing is happening to us that He has not already allowed.

(Psa 4:5) Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the LORD.(Psa 37:3) Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.

(Psa 40:3) And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.

(Psa 73:28 ) But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy works.

(Psa 115:11) Ye that fear the LORD, trust in the LORD: he is their help and their shield.

(Psa 118:8 ) It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.

(Psa 118:9) It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes.

(Psa 125:1) [A Song of degrees.] They that trust in the LORD shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever.

(Pro 3:5) Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

(Pro 28:25) He that is of a proud heart stirreth up strife: but he that putteth his trust in the LORD shall be made fat.

(Pro 29:25) The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe.

So I ask those of you who love the Lord and pray, to pray for my dear husband. Beseech the Lord that He would give us exactly the right amount of grace we need to go through this trial together.

(Php 4:6) Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. (Php 4:7) And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

The Lord tells me to be thankful for all things. (Eph 5:20) Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; How can I be thankful for possible cancer? How can I be thankful to see what lies ahead for my dear husband? We must remember that the Lord has allowed each of us to go through a trial so that we may be of help to another – all for the purpose of leading the lost to Him and to glorify the Lord, Jesus Christ! (2 Cor 1:4) Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. May this be our prayer at this time and may John and I rest in His care in the upcoming weeks.

I am documenting this so that we can share in the joys together as family. Thank you for praying, my brothers and sisters in Christ.

  1. (Psa 125:1) [A Song of degrees.] They that trust in the LORD shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever.

    This is a neat verse! Keep your trust in the Lord, and you will not be moved. God bless.
