The Health check result was a shock. I was not prepared for immediate responses from my Doctor which involved an operation before Christmas with immediate blood tests and a comprehensive body scan.
Nothing in the test results showed imminent threat to life but potential perhaps further down the track.
EACH day is precious to me, and everything suggested, as necessary, would alter the peaceful flow of my current life. I felt I was being steamrolled into rapid decision making.
I did not agree to a decision and came home feeling sad and uncertain. The question of facing an operation was unresolved and as I surrendered it all to my Lord, I finally fell into peaceful sleep.
Two Words resonated through my mind.
I phoned, yesterday morning, to see how long it would be for an appointment for the recommended scan. I was amazed! There was an unexpected cancellation, and I was asked if I could come in straight away.
Last night I went to sleep knowing one step has been completed as I now must trust HIM for all decisions on the way forward.
For all His Beloved out there……….Let TODAY be rich in GOD POSSIBILITIES and tomorrow surrendered into His HANDS.
I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions.
I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
Dear Faye .. We will be praying for you. No safer time and place than in the hands and on the calendar of Jesus.
