A Detour in Plans

Day 221 in my plans for my immediate future, and for meeting Mickey

My plan for today is to process the information that I received this morning.  It turns out, I have cancer.  So I will pray and think.

I have a very high regard for God.  I talk about him often.  I talk to him often.  I argue with him often (he always wins).  But most of all I believe him.  When he says, “I will never leave you or forsake you.”  I believe him.  When he says, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”  I believe him.  When he say, “We know that all things work together for good to them that love God, and to them who are called according to his purpose.”  I believe him.  I don’t need to know why-me.  Why not me?  I don’t need to know the outcome.  I just need to have faith that he goes with me.

And so I take the next step.  I see an oncologist is a couple weeks, and we make plans for treatment.  Sooner the better, I say.  And I keep making plans, and taking the next steps, and I keep looking forward to our trip to Florida in October.

God is good all the time.  Meet you at the Kingdom!
