More “Cancer Fightin’ Words” to Add to my Running List

More “Cancer Fightin’ Words” to Add to my Running List:

I am very happy to be alive and thriving and every day I am on this earth is a gift from God.  Heaven is an even bigger free gift waiting for me at the perfect time of His choosing.  My Father has numbered my days and I will joyfully see Him face to face when HE says so.

Because of all God has promised in His Word, I have a positive, hopeful outlook on life and a positive expectancy for each day I am blessed with.  What would you like me to do today, Lord?  I want to fit into YOUR plans.  Please guide and direct me and help me not to waste the precious resource of time.

My constitution is strong with an amazing resiliency for overcoming sickness and recuperating from cancer and the treatments of cancer that I’ve done to heal.

I am grateful for all the tools that God has used and continues to use to make me strong and well.

I have all the reserves I need to heal from the inside out and without complications.

I have a great big resolve to proactively take excellent care of my body and my body is responding well to my healthy lifestyle by getting stronger every day.  

I appreciate my many blessings more than ever.

The Herceptin I took every 21 days for a year was like a laser beam, specifically elimnating Her2 positive cells with precision.

I have been blessed with an awesome immune system that is a powerful source of defending my good health.

I am firmly resolved to do whatever it takes to get healthy, be healthy, and stay healthy the rest of my life.  It’s fun and fulfilling to take measures that build my body and spirit up. 

I have healthy, positive ways of dealing with stress and overcoming challenges that come my way for a season.

I make no space in my thought life for negativity: I only have room for positivity.  I reject emotions and attitudes that do not line up with what God says in the Bible about how I should be thinking, my thoughts will dwell on His “whatsoevers”.  God is in full control of my life and will give me all the help and grace I need for all He allows.

Perseverance and tenacity are my middle names (besides Victoria :).

I have a strong will to live life fully as my Saviour intends.

I can leave my future in God’s Lap and rest in Him, full of joy and peace.

 My spirit soars with the freedom I have in Christ.  My thoughts hum with satisfaction and contentment because God makes no mistakes and is wise in what He allows in my life–He has a purpose and a plan for everything and He could not love me more than He already does.  When I lack wisdom, I will ask HIM for wisdom.

Emotions and circumstances do not rule my life: God does.


“God gave you a gift of 86, 400 seconds today.  Have you used one to say ‘Thank you’”? (William Ward )Lord, every single gift comes from You…“Lift my gaze to see life from Your perspective. Help me to understand-and treasure-every good thing You send…”(From James 1:7)   My running list of His One Thousand Gifts to me: 
893.Jeremiah 17:7-8 Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit
894. Quote from “Jesus Calling” :“When you face unexpected demands, there is no need to panic. Remember that I am with you. Talk with Me, and listen while I talk you through each challenging situation.  I am not a careless God. When I allow difficulties to come into your life, I equip you fully to handle them. Relax in My Presence, trusting in My Strength.
2 Corinthians 12:9
“Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness”
895.”The flower that blooms with adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all.”
896.”Faith is God’s invitation to make the impossible possible.  He is glorified when we are enabled to do what we are unable to do”  (unknown author)

897.”In the midst of an ever-changing world, the good news is that the life of faith is anchored by the power, provisions and the promises of God.  Circumstances may change, but the future is as sure as the character of God himself.  No matter what happens, those who trust in God hope in his word” (Unknown author)


898. Psalm 119:114

“You are my refuge and my shield; your word is my source of hope”

899. This song is running through my mind today:

“In Christ alone my hope is found, He is my light, my strength, my song; this Cornerstone, this solid Ground, firm through the fiercest drought and storm. What heights of love, what depths of peace, when fears are stilled, when strivings cease! My Comforter, my All in All, here in the love of Christ I stand.”

    Dearest Paula,
    What a marvelous song indeed. I had to listen to it over and over and add it to my favorites.
    I also really like the quote from “Jesus Calling.” Is that a book or what? Who wrote it and is it still available to purchase, do you know?
    What can i say, your blog as always adds to my faith drawing it out more and more. It is up lifting and thought provoking. Thanks once more my dear sister in Christ. God Bless. Kathy Geiger

    Here is a description of the book:
    Jesus Calling is a devotional filled with uniquely inspired treasures from heaven for every day of the year. After many years of writing in her prayer journal, missionary Sarah Young decided to listen to God with pen in hand, writing down whatever she believed He was saying to her. It was awkward at first, but gradually her journaling changed from monologue to dialogue. She knew her writings were not inspired as Scripture is, but journaling helped her grow closer to God. Others were blessed as she shared her writings, until people all over the world were using her messages. They are written from Jesus’ point of view, thus the title Jesus Calling. It is Sarah’s fervent prayer that our Savior may bless readers with His presence and His peace in ever deeper measure. is a great place to find good book deals–used and new. How is your health doing these days, Kathy?

    Esther, how fun that we both had that song on our minds today! It’s one of my many favorite songs. Love the words! See ya at church tomorrow–will have your veggies with me.

    Beth, I have to chuckle in amazement–I continually fall so short from where I’d like to be in all those categories but I praise God that my weakness keeps me looking to Him for His strength. 🙂 Hey, hope you get out our way to visit your kids this Fall and stop by to see us too.
