If you read Life with Lynnie (LwL) yesterday, you'll know that my friend M was having reconstructive surgery after having a mastectomy a few years back. And, you'll be aware that prayer was requested for friends and family, who are suffering from disease, including cancer.
In case you're curious, M came through the surgery, well.
It seemed to be quite a lengthy surgery, time wise. A few minutes after 6 p.m., I called her husband, D. He let me know that she had just been taken from the operating room to the recovery room, only about five (5) minutes earlier.
He also let me know he was told that the surgery went well. Thank You, Lord! Hallelujah! I praise God!
I would like to thank you for praying for M. May God bless you. Always.
Life isn't easy. And, it isn't always kind, either.
Just as some of my friends and family know, who need healing. Those people I mentioned, yesterday.
Thank you for praying for my other friends and family. Not only has your prayer lifted up those who I requested prayer for, but also, has provided a way of healing for each of them.
After all, God told us to humble ourselves and cast all our cares upon Him. This doesn't just refer to those who needed prayer that I requested. It also applies to you. Me. And, indeed... everyone.
Just as He told us, in 1 Peter 5:6-10, "Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you."
Thank you, my friend.
I cannot thank you enough, for praying for those who people you probably don't even know. May God bless you. Please know that I pray for you, also.
It is my heart's desire for all who I've prayed for, plus for yourself, that everyone is being alert and preparing for being approached by Satan, the devil. For just as God's Word tells us, he is waiting like a roaring lion, to attack anyone he can.
Just as we are told, we must stand in faith. Not just for ourselves, but also for others, for many will suffer just as you do.
The greatest part of these Bible verses isn't just hearing what God would have us do. Rather, it is the promise that God made us.
After we become saved, and after we have suffered, He will provide for us, both here on earth, and in Heaven. And, He will strengthen us. By His grace.
For this, I praise God! Thank You, Lord.
Until next time...
