‘But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him out.” (Hebrews 11:6)
Not all my posts will be about cancer. I feel a lot of people succumb to cancer’s destruction because they own it, they brag about it, they fundraise in hopes there will be a medical cure, and they pink-out in support of the breast cancer rip-off charities. Yuck. I can’t stand that stuff. I have better things to do and to spend my resources on. God is Healer, and people are curing their cancers daily with natural, non-toxic therapies. It’s been proven there’s a better way than cut, poison, burn. It just makes sense that we would not destroy our bodies for a chance to possibly get well enough to live a little longer. Compromised health, but at least still alive, right? Wrong.
I’ve been doing great with my eating habits and have already dropped three pounds since Friday. I’m keeping a food diary to share with my naturopath, and I’d have to say it looks quite impressive. I still have dark chocolate cravings, but dark chocolate can be healthy in the right form such as organic, non-GMO, and over 70% cocao. That’s not a typo. Cocao is the healthy chocolate, cocoa is more processed and sugary. I’ve been taking handfuls of supplements daily, and though I was apprehensive about taking all those things, I know that as I get healthier, the less I will have to take. I also recognize the benefits all these supplements have given me in my healing journey thus far. That is, real, whole food based, minimally processed supplements purchased through the natural health clinic. Centrum and all those other type of supplements are toxic and don’t contain actual nutrients that can be assimilated into your body. You’re actually wasting money on them and possibly doing more harm than if you would spend a little more for the real stuff. I’ve done both and know the difference.
That’s enough about health. In my battle for life, God is where I am setting my gaze and my hope. The Lord has been so great to me. I remember talking with a woman of God shortly after I was diagnosed. She gave me a word that made my hair stand on end: “You love the Lord and He is a rewarder of those who love Him.” I’ve read the bible many times over, but I had to ask if that was actually in there. I realized at that point that I have read Hebrews 11:6 many times, but I never believed it was for me. I’m not a perfect Christian and have done much to mess up my life by being disobedient to God. But, I say this with tears of endearment, I love Him so much. I’m not into the false grace message that has been hitting the modern church these days, but I do know that even in my imperfection, God is crazy about me. He’s crazy about you. This word doesn’t make me relax and continue in disobedience just because God is Love, but it convicts me to love Him more and keep Him as my First Love.
God does reward the faithful. He desires that we be about the Father’s business in building His Kingdom. When we set our eyes on Him and our purpose for living to serve Him, He rewards us. I have such hope for a future of serving the Lord. He has given me some visions and dreams to live out and the devil cannot thwart that plan. Lord “I know that You can do all things, and that no thought or purpose of Yours can be restrained or thwarted” (Job 42:2). He has a perfect plan for each one of us, but we must seek Him out and stay in love with Him. God’s word for you and me: “For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome. Then you will call upon Me, and you will come and pray to Me, and I will hear and heed you. Then you will seek Me, inquire for, and require Me [as a vital necessity] and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:11-13).
Seek Him out. He loves you. Lord bless you!
