Tomorrow we head in for my 3rd cycle of chemo, we also find out the results of my most recent CT scan; this scan was basically to check the progress of the treatments thus far, and determine if they have been effective. Please pray that they have been effective, and also pray that this next cycle goes well (avoiding any side of effects). I am pretty tired of this process, already, please pray that they will be able to get this cancer sooner than later; pray that the LORD will just touch my body, and rid me of this disease (I know you all have).

I wanted to share something from Charles Spurgeon that the LORD ministered to me through this morning:

And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will show to you to-day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to-day, ye shall see them again no more for ever.

Exodus 14:13

These words contain God’s command to the believer when he is reduced to great straits and brought into extraordinary difficulties. He cannot retreat; he cannot go forward; he is shut up on the right hand and on the left; what is he now to do? The Master’s word to him is, “Stand still.” It will be well for him if at such times he listes only to his Master’s word, for other and evil advisers come with their suggestions. Despair whispers, “Lie down and die; give it all up.” But God would have us put on a cheerful courage, and even in our worst times, rejoice in His love and faithfulness. Cowardice says, “Retreat; go back to the worldling’s way of action; you cannot play the Christian’s part, it is too difficult. Relinquish your principles.” But, however much Satan may urge this course upon you, you cannot follow it if you are a child of God. Precipitancy cries, “Do something. Stir yourself; to stand still and wait is sheer idleness.” We must be doing something at once — we must do it, so we think — instead of looking to the Lord, who will not only do something but will do everything. Presumption boasts, “If the sea be before you, march into it and expect a miracle.” But Faith listens neither to Presumption, nor to Despair, nor to Cowardice, nor to Precipitancy, but it hears God say, “Stand still,” and immovable as a rock it stands. “Stand still” — keep the posture of an upright man, ready for action, expecting further orders, cheerfully and patiently awaiting the directing voice; and it will not be long ere God shall say to you, as distinctly as Moses said it to the people of Israel, “Go forward.” (Charles Spurgeon ed. Al Bryant, “Day by Day with C. H. Spurgeon,” 20)

Thank you all for your continued prayers, can’t wait for the day that this blog becomes obselete; until then I’ll keep posting, and keep asking for your prayers.
