Mammogram

I recently had a routine mammogram.  All went well until the technician wanted to do the right side twice.  Afterward she asked me not to get dressed until she could get a doctor to come and check it.  Hmm.

I waited.  The doctor finally checked the mammogram and then said I needed an ultrasound – now.  I again waited.  Then I prayed, “Lord, I’m getting older.  I know many who have had cancer.  If it’s my turn, then please work this out so You will get the glory.”

The technician finished the ultrasound and called the doctor back.  The doctor repeated the ultrasound, taking a long time.  Finally…  “This looks suspicious, but it’s not.  It’s just a cyst.  You’re fine.  Come back in a year.”

Whew!   I suddenly realized how blessed I am.  Many women are not told the result of a concerning mammogram until days later.  Then an ultrasound may be scheduled two weeks out.  The entire two weeks she’s thinking it may be cancer.

Somehow God wanted me to receive the good news promptly – and I am thankful.  I believe God still has work for me to do.  Everywhere I go there are people who need Jesus.

“Lord, open my eyes to the opportunities around me.  Then give me Your wisdom and Your words.  This I ask in the precious name of Jesus, Amen.”

  • So do not fear,  for I am with you; do not be dismayed,  for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.       Isaiah 41:10

THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH YOU – Lyrics by Liana Wendy Howarth, Music by Kathleen

This life is temporary.  This life is short.  When this life is over, our bodies will die and become empty shells, but our souls will continue to live forever.  Where will the “real you” live?  Will you live for all eternity separated from God?  Or will you spend eternity in the presence of God in heaven?   Learn more so you can make your most important decision:   http://www.godlife.com/gospel/

About Kathleen

God delights in working through His people as they submit to Him. Jesus said to go into all the world and preach the good news to everyone (Mark 16:15). No matter where we live on this planet, people are separated from God because of sin. We ALL need a Savior, and there’s only ONE. It brings me great joy to share Christ with the lost and lonely. Over the years I’ve learned a great deal while facilitating Bible studies. I’ve found myself on college and university campuses, the beach, the streets, the hospital, the jail and the juvenile facility for incarcerated teens sharing God’s message of love. I also serve as an online missionary with Global Media Outreach. I’ve seen countless lives transformed when people turn away from sin and turn to Jesus. The changes God makes are real and lasting. These are some of my experiences. NOTE: My stories have been altered, removing any and all identifying factors.
