An old friend came to visit tonight. I had put her off for several days. I ignored her, pretended she wasn't there, looked the other way, did whatever I could to make her go away. So by acknowledging her presence with this post, I will officially be on my way to slamming the door in her face once and for all!
Sounds rude doesn't it? Her name is "Much Afraid" and to know her name, is to know her. I stopped hanging out with her several years ago while undergoing cancer and chemotherapy treatments. I thought our friendship was over, but no, she showed up tonight right at my front door. I let her in a little while ago, but she is fixing to go.
I've had three biopsies in my life. Two of them having resulted in terrifying news. On Thursday of this past week, I finally had my Thyroid biopsied. While having the procedure done, I had a very serious "flashback" to a fairly difficult chemo treatment 20 years ago. I sensed right then that "Much Afraid" may try to visit. She did.
On monday I am suppose to be told if I have cancer of the Thyroid or just nodules that are benign. I covet anyones prayers out there that is a praying person. I've not had a good track record but this time I am truly believing God for good news!
So with all your prayers and God's good help I know all will be well...just one matter of business left at hand...
I am now escorting "Much Afraid" to the front door...*SLAMM*!!! Now that should just about do it! Alrighty then!
Blessings, Peace, All Good,
***The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?Psalm 27:1
**You can know more about "Much Afraid" in Hannah Hurnards's book "Hinds Feet On High Places". Myself?...I know her better than I care to...
