God's creation is so wonderful. I look at this stunning photo and the reflection that emphasizes the majesty of God's creation...and the serene peace. Each time I see a mountain, I am reminded of HIS greatness.
Psalm 36:6a Thy righteousness is like the great mountains...
God created us...and when I trusted Christ as my personal Saviour at the young age of 19...I realized then, truly; my life is not my own. He created me for a purpose in life and as I've yielded to HIM in my Christian walk; I have found those purposes fulfilled over and over again.
For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. Philippians 2:13
And so now...as 2010 approaches the NEW YEAR brings with it a new journey for me. A "mission field" of sorts..or so as I view it to be and with all prayer that it will bring forth fruit that we all desire in our walks of life serving the LORD. Some are called to special fields of service and some for a particular time.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven...
I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer yesterday. This is the pathology report from my ultra-sound core needle biopsy. I have IDCa ..Invasive Ductal Carcinoma A or I'm assuming stage 1. I have a 8 mm tumor that has invaded the surrounding tissue though I do not know yet to what extent. I will have to have a lymph node test to see if it has advanced into my lymph system. I know that there are many more test to come. I see a Breast Cancer Specialist this coming Monday to discuss my condition and treatments to follow.
If you would pray with me in this regard...that I will be able to fulfill this "mission field's" service as God desires. That with every open door to speak of HIS grace that listeners will take to heart the truth being shared. That I would have courage when faced with difficulties and wisdom to understand certain situations and how to show my God's true presence in my life.
God also chose at this time in my life to bring a dear Christian woman into my path, my friend whom I've shared with you..Kelly Johnson in Okinawa. Isn't it a work already that GOD chose this time for both of us to have Cancer. Miles apart, yet close in spirit and heart...we are walking together in this journey and we both...
............believe to see the goodness of the LORD...............................
I will post off and on about my journey in the midst of other devotional thoughts as I have done here on THIS IS THE DAY...
May God bless you in the New Year!

Dear friends..please continue to pray for Kelly Johnson (missionary in Okinawa). Her mastectomy went well and she now is in the battle. She is armed with the Lord's graces and care. Her blog can be found on my sidebar with the PINK Tea with Friends photo.
Please also keep me in your prayers as I await my own pathology report for Breast Cancer. I had a breast biopsy done yesterday. Monday Dec. 21.
THIS IS THE DAY....the LORD continues to be our confidence and strength in time of need. He is ever present.
May God bless you with a NEW YEAR filled with HIS good work in your lives.
