God bless you.
Pull up a chair, if you will, and let me praise, preach and thank the Lord with you for
a moment. And if you are not too busy Wednesday and Thursday nights, June 17 and
June 18, join me in revival at the Community Covenant Church 12446 South Loomis,
where Dr. Mark Thompson is the dynamic pastor.
My latest praise report is the continued lowering of my PSA, which tells me that
God's healing of my prostate cancer is in continued progress because the disease is in
Get back, cancer!!! Get back!!! Get up off of me and get on out of me!!! Be gone
from my midst, in the mighty and magical name of King Jesus!!! By the power of the
Holy Ghost and by the grace of almighty God, I claim victory over mine infirmities and
over your infirmities, my blogreaders, in the name of Jesus and under the anointed
authority of our faith.
The final result of my blood work during my May 28 visit with Dr. Allen Anderson, my
cardiologist at the University of Chicago Medical Center, included the report that my PSA
is now down to 1.01, a marked improvement from my February reading of 2.01. My good
friend Eugene and the Kizart brothers (David, Milton and nephew Clay), Samuel, Andre,
Joseph, David, George and Jacqueline are all happy about this.
Ain't God good!!!!!
First, the tumor on my brain was ruled benign a year ago. Now, my prostate cancer
is dissolving more and more toward oblivion.
It's unfortunate that my heart is no better. I'm still an end-stage congestive heart
failure patient, needing a heart transplant. It's still very, very weak. Its pumping efficiency
has been rated at 19 percent and less. But I am blessed and fortunate that it isn't worse.
Praise the Lord for every little bit more of His grace and mercy trickling down on me.
In my smackdown with death, that ol' despicable grim reaper, God is giving me the
victory. That gives me continued cause to sing,
"Victory is mine.
Victory is mine.
Victory today is mine.
I told Satan, 'Get thee behind me.'
Victory today is mine."
If God is likewise blessing you in your battle with whatever health issue or adversity,
why don't you join in with the rest of us redeemed with our healings in progress and sing,
"Victory is mine. Victory is mine. Victory today is mine. I told Satan, 'Get thee behind me.'
Victory today is mine."
Praise the Lord!
I want to thank all of my blogreaders for your continued prayers and support. You
are a great part of the reason why I am not just still holding onto God's unchanging hand,
but that my overall health issue, including a bad back, is slowly getting better .
I know that, for my enemies, I am not dying fast enough.
Neither are you.
If our enemies had their way, you and I would have been dead a long time ago. Am I
right about it, Gwen, Donna, John, Connie, Carrol, Natasha, Tomas, Mary, Cheryl, Darrell,
Gregory, Henry, Tommie, Jimmie, Veryunca, Flossie, Spencer, Maria, Patricia, Bill,
Wardella, Marsea and the rest of y'all? I just had to give a shout out to all y'all.
Am I right and ain't God good?
But while we're not dying fast enough for our enemies, we're dying slow enough
for our friends. Moreover, we're dying slower than a lot of people who presently are
younger, healthier and wealthier than we are. One does not have to be sick or old or
both to die.
Once more, am I right about it?
Yes, we are in a smackdown with death just like our dear departed loved ones were.
A smackdown with debts.
A smackdown with sickness.
A smackdown with unemployment and economic hardship.
A smackdown with divers temptations.
A smackdown with doubt, despair, depression and disaster.
A smackdown with all manner of evil.
But thanks be to God, who giveth us the victory through Jesus Christ our Lord. For
greater is He who is within you and me than he that is within the world.
Yes, we may have to suffer sometimes. But we have the victory.
Our burdens may get heavy and our souls may feel dreary and weary. But we have
We may have to cry, drink tears for water and toss and turn all night in beds of
affliction, sometimes. But we have the victory.
Our friends may desert us and our enemies may outnumber us and even seem, at
times, to have the upper hand. But weep not. Be encouraged. Take heart and be
thankful. For whereas weeping may endure for a night or two or even three sometimes,
joy cometh in the morningtime and we shall gain the victory.
So, keep on praying, trusting and believing in God, because our God is an awesome
God bless you.
