Oh, Ye of Little Faith Breast Cancer and Bras
by Marijo Phelps 11/02/2011 / Health
Doing much better today even drove to the mail box (3 miles one way approx). Took a shower with no one standing by and made dinner, baking corn bread etc.
Am taking a leap here (but maybe a logical one as the Lord knows I "do words" and write and play with written communication all the time.) He laid it on my heart that "this is not unto death". I have been cogitating and came up with "yah, but there is a lot of territory between whole and having breasts left and having a mastectomy"
You seen the pretty bras I ordered in my expected size to encourage me sit on the bed unwrapped because I am not washing them when I might have to send them back. Why would I have to send them back? If the surgery biopsy showed cancer and cancer outside the ducts then I would be a candidate for a mastectomy.
SO today it came to me (did I conger it up or was it the still, small voice? Am I unpackaging those bras and running to the washer? Nope, I am typing an e-mail to you my Teri-sounding board.)
"This is not unto death." The unsaid part being not even death of a breast.so I am trying to make that flying leap that means I am still going to have both breasts and wear bras and not have a mutilating mastectomy.
I put my hand in Jesus's hand this AM in the living room and took those two steps walking after Him wherever He leads.
Don't I just love waiting? Oh, oh, I think I am flunking Patience 101 again..
I "saw" the light coming down from heaven as I praised with uplifted hands into my fingertips and shining, glowing golden light across both breasts. At that time I had no idea that both were having surgery they did though. I should grasp that "vision" and hang onto it like it is gold because it was and is. HE is able, when I am puny His strength is made perfect.
Would it be a leap of faith to put those bras in the washer or an act of presumption. Well, at least I have put 3 of them in for now.
