Thank You

Thank you for your prayers, Bloggyland. I love the idea that prayers from cyberspace go up to heaven and God hears. And he answers.

Tracy got a good report today. The oncologist says he "wouldn't even begin to imagine that the spot on the blood vessel is anything." But he will test some lymph nodes to be sure. She will have her hysterectomy over the Thanksgiving holiday to give her some extra days off work to recover. The surgery will be the less invasive kind and will require about three weeks recovery.

We are praising God tonight for this report and we continue to stand guard against the enemy faithfully lifting up our praises and our petitions before the Lord. We won't stop fighting and I think praise is the best kind of weapon!

This is the verse I got as I praised.
Be on your guard and stay awake. Your enemy, the devil, is like a roaring lion, sneaking around to find someone to attack. 1 Peter 5:8

But I really like how The Message says it.
Keep a cool head. Stay alert. The Devil is poised to pounce, and would like nothing better than to catch you napping. Keep your guard up. You're not the only ones plunged into these hard times. It's the same with Christians all over the world. So keep a firm grip on the faith. The suffering won't last forever. It won't be long before this generous God who has great plans for us in Christ—eternal and glorious plans they are!—will have you put together and on your feet for good. He gets the last word; yes, he does. 1 Peter 5:8-11
