I Have a Faith Memory

Updated: Nov 7, 2021

It is November and Breast Cancer Awareness is behind us. We are preparing for the upcoming holidays, and I need to share a praise report that cannot wait until Thanksgiving. By the way, we should express our gratitude year-round. Just before the last day of October, I went in for my annual mammogram. Praise God, I am still cancer free! Thank you all for the love and support. I am reflecting on the fact that during the first five years, I went in for those appointments every six months. Then, after that five-year mark, I “graduated” and now I am going annually. I have a confession. I really had to pray and work through fear and the thought: “Oh no, I have to wait a whole year this time! What if the cancer comes back?” I have questioned myself. Am I depending on the results of the mammogram or am I depending on God? It’s ok to rely on my doctors and medical professionals to do what they are trained to do, but as a Christian, I must remind myself that my main Source is God, the Great Physician. I stated in my first blog last month that I am very grateful for early detection. Yes, and now that I’ve had the appointment and I heard them say that there is no cancer, I am grateful for God’s protection and His power to heal me and take care of me! I am so thankful that I have good health care providers. I want to commend them for the fantastic work they’re doing. While I wait to go back and see them, I refuse to live in fear and worry. I am believing as I am speaking what God’s Word says concerning my health. “I shall not die, but live, And declare the works of the Lord” (Psalm 118:17) and “…with his stripes we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:5). I am doing my part to help take care of myself, and I can rest knowing that I will not depart from here until I have accomplished all that God has called me to do. He is ALWAYS awake, and I will not lose sleep and be anxious until my next appointment in October of 2022. My life is in God’s hands. I trust Him. I depend on Him. No matter what you’re going through, I want to encourage you to do the same. He’s able. To read any of my previous blogs, visit I’m praying for you!
