This is a note I found in Dads office the night before he passed. The cancer in his brain effected his ability to write so it is a little choppy. Please take the time to read.
Stage Four Cancer- yes
I sense in others- “He is in denial!” Am l?
I think l realize that God could call me home! My wife, my children… Although not pleasant thoughts- this l know.. Psalm 119:68- (Thou art good, and doest good; teach me thy statutes.) – Good, Nahum 1:7 (The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble, and he knoweth those who trust in them.) -faithful to His word and faithful in my life. If l depart early, l do not have rational reasons to believe that He will not be faithful to me- after as well as He has, and is now.
Secondly, years ago- Phil 4:6 (Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known unto God.)
“Nothing”- everything l was fretting over
“Everything”- yep, every single thing on my list and God gave a promise to me. “The peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”- and He did it. Many times since then..
So now, what should l do? Fret, fear, be anxious? What will it profit? One cubit? So, if you are one who thinks, “that poor soul, he is just in denial,” please know that what you see is not denial, it is the Almighty doing what He promised!
Little and the big- Elisha, ax handle, Asa, large army!
