Up Close and Personal God

God is continuing to blow my mind. He gave me Jeremiah 29:11 as a promise from His Word... "For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you... thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome" (Amplified)
Knowing that I am in His thoughts every day comforts me. He has proved to me that He is not only going to be WITH me, but that He is taking pains to ensure that I am comfortable with every detail.
If you know me well, you know that I am very interested in the natural homeopathic healing methods of supplements, essential oils and such. I won't take the time to give every detail - but God just allowed me to re-connect with a friend via email that I have been out of touch with for about 15 years. She is an RN and has been for nearly 40 years. She had no idea what was going on with me - and I had no idea that she was working with a team of doctors and researchers as a consultant to people (like me) that have been diagnosed with a disease, or that have lost their health due to age, disease, accidents and so on.
I have even told my family and friends that I am more afraid of the treatment than the disease. I have seen the devastation chemotherapy has wrought on so many. My friend has already got me accepted as a patient by this team and they are going to monitor and support all the treatment my doctors recommend. Their methods help keep you strong and healthy through all the stress of cancer and the treatment of it while at the same time support your body to fight off the cancer itself.
I can't explain the impact this has made on me. I know God has ordered my steps. He knows me. He knows my fears. He knows my beliefs... and He honors all of that by leading me to people that He can work through to give me total care, comfort and support.
I know that He is able to completely heal me - at any instant! And I also know that He has something to teach me through this situation, so my ears and eyes are opened. My pen is in my hand and I'm taking notes like crazy - because the Teacher has the floor.
I am so blessed... amazed... overwhelmed and moved by His loving attention to the details of my life.

One thing about it is: The devil may bring it to us, but he doesn't know the end! What he brings to make us weak, makes us stand taller, raise the banner higher, pick up the pencil and sharpen it with God's sharpener! Along time ago, I wrote a chorus when going through the fire: "I go to war on the floor, I am nothing, take what I have, won't you touch me Lord. I cannot speak like great men, but I'm a vessel of Yours. I go to war, I go to war on the floor."
It's time for war on the floor!
Love You,
