Praising the Lord in the Midst of a Trial

8/28/2007 Estreitta 1 Comments

Never in a million years would i think that i would be dealing with this, especially at my age. But I praise the Lord Even still, because His name is Great and Greatly to be Praised.

A few weeks ago i had some strange symptoms and went to the doctor to "Check things out" and they sent me to go to get some more test which lead to a biopsy last Wednesday.
well my friends, i have some news to share with you.  yesterday, i was diagnosed with a non-invastive form of breast cancer called DCIS, Ductal Carcinoma in Situ. and Still i will Praise The Lord with all that is within me!

On Thursday Aug 31, Erik and I will be meeting with a surgeon and I will let you know what happens as a result of that appointment. Moreso, I will Praise the Lord, for He is Good and his Mercy Endures for ever.

in the Mean time I need you to pray in agreement with us.

First and Foremost, Pray that the Power of the Holy Spirit heal my body by destroying every cancer cell even the so called "dormant" cancer cells from ever growing again.  Pray the God gives us a Surgeon, Oncologyst and nurses that have Wisdom, knowledge and trust in the Lord with all their Heart, Soul and Mind.  Pray for favor with the insurance to assist us with payment for any test, treatments, and surguries i might have to undergo. Pray for our finances. (as I have heard the medical bills can be astronomical) Pray for my close friends and Family for strength and continual peace to be with them as they support me through this trial. Pray for me to Remember God's Promises and purposes I know he has for me. and Then Praise Him For His healing power, his provision, his favor, and strength and peace and His promises, because they never fail.

Thank you for your prayers and support.  I truly am greatful for the people I am surrounded by not only in proximity but also on myspace.

    You are definately in my prayers and thanksgiving. Thanksgiving because I give thanks for all that is accomplished and completed already. Your healing is just that "YOUR HEALING!" He did it for you and we are thankful that He has provided for your every need. We look at your situation and we say "It's over." The battle is over and already won. I am here for you, my dear. I'm sending you love and hugs with this to you, Erik, your family, and your friends.

    Love and blessings,

    Rom 8:11 - The same spirit that raised Christ from the dead dwells inside of you and is presently quickening your body!!

    Isa 34:16 - The promises of God will not fail...

    II Pet 3:9 - God's not tardy in the fulfillment of His promises...

    Psalm 103:3 - He forgives all of your sins and heals ALL of your diseases...

    Gal 3:13 - you've been redeemed from the curse!

    Psa 91:14 God says, "I will save those who love me and will protect those who acknowledge me as LORD.
    Psa 91:15 When they call to me, I will answer them; when they are in trouble, I will be with them. I will rescue them and honor them.
    Psa 91:16 I will reward them with long life; I will save them."

    Now, labor only to enter into His rest that He has provided for you. Rest in HIS promises. He is not a man that He should lie. His Word will not return empty handed, but will do what it was sent to do.

    Dearest Estreitta,

    You, Erik, your family, friends, and soon to be doctors will most definately be in my prayers. You are an amazingly strong person, and so full of God, and He will bring you through this. God is working through you in ways that you may not even realize yet, He brought you here and He'll bring you out!

    "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28

    "Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction and faithful in prayer." Romans 12:12

    Two of my favorites;) Please keep us posted!

    Wow, I can not imagine what you must be dealing with. 1 John 4:4 says : Ye little children are from God and have overcome them, becasue he who is in you is greater then the world. I will continue to lift you in prayers. Keep a positive outlook and a smile on that beuatiful face. I always remember that smile from school. You radiate the room with it.
