Journal Entry-

Oh LORD, send out Your light and truth. Let them lead me and bring me to Thy holy hill, to Your tabernacle, to Your altar, to Your presence. (Ps.43:3-4) Oh LORD, You are my exceeding joy. Please open my eyes to behold Your glory and Your beauty!

            Ps.3:7-            “Arise, O LORD; save me, oh my God…”

            Ps.4:1-            “Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness…”

            Ps46:10-        “Be STILL…”

            Ps.37:3           “Trust in the LORD…”

            Ps.5:1-            “Give ear…hearken… Destroy Thou them, O God!”

                                    rejoice, rejoice, rejoice

                                    “For Thou, LORD, will bless the righteous;

                                    with favor will Thou compasseth as with a shield.”

Ps.6:2-                        “Have mercy upon me, O LORD; HEAL ME

        4-             “deliver my soul, O save me for Thy mercies sake…”

        5-             “for in death there is not remembrance of Thee…

                                    in the grave who will give Thee thanks?”

        9-             “the LORD hath heard my supplication”

                                    “the LORD will receive my prayer”

      10-                        “Let all my enemies be ashamed and greatly disquieted…”

Ps.18:2-                     “The LORD is my rock and my fortress, and my deliverer…

                                    I will call upon the LORD…

                                    the sorrows of death compassed me…”

                                    “in my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried to my God…”

                                    Oh, LORD, my God, I cried to thee, and THOU HAST HEARD ME.”

                                    Oh, LORD, Thou hast kept me alive…”

          8-                       “I cried to Thee, O LORD;

                                                What profit is there in my blood?

                                                Shall the dust PRAISE THEE?

                                                shall it declare Thy TRUTH? (Is.38:19)

                                    “Hear O LORD, and have mercy upon me;

                                    LORD, be Thou my help!”

For these biblical reasons, I believe I can pray the prayer of faith-

                        -to keep Your WORD

                        -to remember You

                        -to give Thee thanks (Ps30:11-12)

                        -to praise Thee

                        -to declare Thy truth

                        -for me to remain “is more needful for…” (Phil.1:24)

                                                Joel, my 5 year old son

                                                JohnDavid, my 8 year old

                                                Joshua, my 10 year old

                                                Jorja, my 12 year old

                                                Joanna, my 14 year old

                                                Joseph, my 15, year old

                                                Josiah, my 17 year old

                                                My dear, dear wife, Maureen

                                                My older children, and grandchildren

                                                That I may write (Ps.102:18)

                                                So no one will sorrow upon sorrow for me (Phil.2:27)

Oh LORD, please make known to me what it is that You are doing. I will submit to You, to Your perfect will, if only, I may be enabled to glorify Your Holy name.

Ps.19:14-       “Let the words of my mouth, and the meditations of my heart be                                           acceptable in THY SIGHT, O LORD, my strength and my Redeemer.”

Help me, O GOD, with my WORDS and with my THOUGHTS!

Today, we went to Northport, had MRI and PET scan done, came home, and received the results…that the cancer had not spread to the body yet. We all thanked the LORD and cried.

                        “Call upon me IN THE DAY OF TROUBLE;

                        I will DELIVER thee, and thou shalt glorify me.” Ps. 50:15

Bless the LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless His HOLY NAME!!!
