A couple of months before I went for my mammogram, the Lord began speaking to me about my appearance.  Kinda gave me a pep talk encouraging me to work on it more.

I tend to fall into decay just like the earth under the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics.  One of the major reasons I believe it takes a whole lot more faith to believe in evolution than it does in a Creator.

In the winter months especially, there are all those holidays with all that wonderful food, and when it’s cold, I like nothing better than to bundle up in nice stretchy sweats and a hoodie.   Most of my time is spent at home schooling the kids, so what’s the point of looking nice?

The point is our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit and we need to do our best to make sure it’s glorifying Him.  It’s much easier for us to reach out and love those around us when are in the best physical shape that we can be in.  Just being in the presence of someone who is physically, mentally and spiritually fit is a blessing.

I’ve known this for a very long time, but have a very hard time with followthrough.  I am praying that as I repent that God will work in me the will and the act of His good purpose (Philippians 2:13).  I have a lot to learn about physical fitness and nutrition.  I don’t want my body to remain in the same condition that allowed the mutated cells to live in the first place.

I’ve made a little progress since Monday.  I have an appointment with a radiologist in Birmingham on Tuesday morning.  She is doing a trial study where instead of going for 5 days a week for 6 weeks of radiation, they are giving it twice a day for 5 days with good results.  The more I read about my diagnosis and radiation the more I move away from the idea of doing any radiation.

My mom has been a great help to me.  She and Mike are both studying and researching with me.  I am so thankful for the Wisdom that they both walk in and their prayers and encouragement.

This is the verse that I keep coming back to.  I am so happy that God is my God and I am His possession.  He makes all things beautiful.

Isaiah 41:10 So do not fear, for I am with you; 
   do not be dismayed, for I am your God. 
I will strengthen you and help you; 
   I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
