Thanks for praying
Yesterday was a busy day from beginning to end so I did not have a chance to sit down and update you after my doctor’s appointment. But I wanted to thank you for your prayers. I could feel them as I waited for what seemed like forever for the doctor to deliver the news that no cancer was evident in the scan. Thank you, Lord!
As we drove down to the appointment and I sat in the waiting room, I had to rehearse all of the truth I’ve read and God’s given me in the past. My two favorite verses in these moments are:
“You will keep in perfect peace, him whose mind is STEADFAST because he trusts in You.” Isaiah 26:3
“He will have no fear of bad news, his heart is STEADFAST, trusting in You.” Psalm 112:7
And a dear friend texted me another great verse to cling to as I waited:
“Even to your old age and gray hairs I am He, I am He who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.” Isaiah 46:4
We are relieved when the doctor told us my blood work and scan looked good. There was a small cyst detected but the doctor feels confident it is a normal cyst and shows that my body is getting back to normal after pregnancy. However, I do have to get an ultrasound in six weeks to confirm it is shrinking. I’d appreciate prayers for that but since this has been a reoccuring problem, I am not too worried about it.
These appointments always bring up emotions all over the board. My prayer as we drove to the appointment was, “God, I am not entitled to good health and I surrender my hopes to You, but I do ask you for a good report.” I know He would still be good if I had received a different result but I am very grateful for the good news and for all of your prayers.
More to come!
