Wednesday I had my MRI,which I am believing will show no sign of tumor or cancer.
If you've never had an MRI before let me tell you a few things and some tips about an MRI.
#1: you get to go into one of those tubes...for those of you who are claustrophobic, as I once was, your best bet is to close your eyes and recite scripture over and over again, thinking on the truths of the words and relaxing in the peace of them.
I chose Psalm 103 a chapter I memorized in 2007 and the first 6 or so verses came back quickly and they really entertained my thoughts for the 30 minutes I was in the tube.
#2: you get an IVYuk, I could have done without a needle in my arm, but it is what it is and again if you have issues just don't look.
Mind over matter.
#3: close you eyes.why would you not?
as soon as you lay down, close them and relax.
#4: do not pay close attention to the actual room or the machine on the way in,...that way while you are in the tube you may imagine the scene outside you like some sort of movie or book.
I chose a comic book,
you know like Captain America.
I envisioned all these sceintists around me, some with lab coats and clip boards, others in suits and a few miliary guys and girls as well. While most stood close by, I knew someone was watching from behind tinted windows.
I imagined somewhere in the room there was a machine made by Stark Eterprises and some glasses wearing, newsy-type, internet hacking, blogger kid was filming on his handheld recorder.
Then when you are all done with the MRI you can look around and see the reality of the room and be surprised, or diappointed; it's probably very hospital looking and instead of lots of cool tinted windows it will be one window with a cheap, plastic mini blind. Sure the guy sounded cool on the loud speaker but the reality is he is some 20 year old in scrubs wondering when lunch break is.
But imagine whatever you want, it helps pass the time,
and keeps your imagination alive!!
Now a little more on why I believe in no tumor.
The more I read and think and mediate on the Lord of God, the more I see how miraculous He is.
The more I see that as a child of God I have access to the heavenly realms.
Elijah prayed for no rain and it didn't rain for 3 years!
Elisha prayed for the enemies to be blinded and they were.
Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead.
Jesus healed the blind with a touch, a word, dirt.
Jesus healed face to face, he healed at a distance.
Jesus healed a women when she touched his cloak and Elisha was so full of the Spirit of God that even his dead bones brought a man back to life.
See, here's the deal people. I don't know what you believe, but I believe in the God of the Bible.
Creator God who made me and loves me and wants good for me.
The Word of God says He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow so why would this God of helaing and miracles NOT heal and perform miracles right here, right now.
Healing has already happened in my life and healing is coming.
Miracles have happened in my life already and miracles are coming.
So believe with me.
Whatever you are facing,
whatever it would be;
an unsettled marriage,
a tough child,
uncertain work enviroment,
or perhaps your role here onthis planet earth.
Believe with me.
Have the faith of a mustard seed that this mountain is moved, in Jesus name!!
And yes, I know that God doesn't always work in the ways we desire and have faith in and I am ready to accept whatever He has for me,
for now I am believeing as my 4-year-old prays, "for the cancer to be gone before the bump comes out"
I'll be back next week with update from surgeon...
