Comfort for those living with cancer

Over A Year Since Last Post!

It amazed me when I saw that it has been over a year since I last posted to this blog! Someone clicked “following” and I got an e-mail notice. I thought, “Poor person, they have nothing to follow.” I am sorry I haven’t kept the blog updated, but I’ve been busy living the Abundant Life Jesus gave me.

Jesus gave me the most awesome wife! Judy encourages me daily to be Faithful In The Meantime.

Let me give you a quick update. First, I’m still alive, I’m not a ghost writer. Secondly, I still have liver cancer, but up until a few months ago their was no new activity with one tumor that is just kind of hanging out and not growing. In October I had another RFA procedure by my radiologist that was successful, however (I hate that word), on my follow up MRI they found two new tumors and one is a nasty one near my heart which makes it difficult to treat. I go to the surgeon in a couple of months to determine if he can remove it or do an RFA by opening me up to make sure they miss the heart.

I start Oral Chemo Therapy next week, Nexavar, and I’m not looking forward to it, but I have to trust Jesus to give my doctors wisdom. I will post in a few weeks to let you know how it’s going.

Now to the important stuff, God Is Good! Romans 8:38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

I’ve never been closer to my Lord or felt more opportunities to share the Gospel! Cancer doesn’t close the door for Christians, it opens new doors of effectual ministry every day.

Watch for my next post “Good Attitude Is Good Medicine!”

Happy New Years to you all and may the Lord Jesus Christ bless you with every blessing in 2014!
