Jesus IS My Homeboy // If You Are Offended By Religion -> Skip This Post


As I´ve mentioned in one of my last posts, I´m really happy I finally found a church that makes me feel home! Since I go there and pray more, I feel like I have so much more power!

Sunday our Pastor delivered a really nice sermon. It was about why, in sports, the team that is playing at their home stadium has an advantage. The fields have the same measurements. No matter where you go. The baskets/goals/ bases are the same.
The difference is: the crowds! The support that is coming from the fans. 

I think my new church made it easy for me to be part of a wonderful team again and have the support from people and prayers from all over the world. We don´t wear the same jersery, but we share something even greater: we share our faith in God and that with his help everything is possible!

I was going through pretty tough times lately. I didn´t talk much about it. I wasn´t feeling well for a couple of months...
Then I had my annual cancer check-up at my OB gyn. She found lumps in my right breast. In my family there is a history of cancer. My mom passed away 15 years ago - breast cancer. She was only 45 years old... 
So when the doctor told me there is "something", I was shocked. I didn´t know what to think or what to say. She made an ultrasound for at least 15 minutes. Measuring spots, doing this and that - ....don´t you hate it when doctors don´t talk to you???

That day wasn´t the best day during my cycle for a breast examination. So she told me to come back 2 weeks later. 

As you can probably imagine, these 2 weeks were like hell for me. Waiting is so hard! Especially when it is waiting for something like that.

I didn´t tell the people at my church exactly what was wrong, but I´ve asked them to pray for me and a positive result from the next examination. And that´s what they did. And that´s what M´s mom did. And that´s what her church did.

And that´s what I did. Every day. 

Today was the day. I went to the doctor again this afternoon. Another ultrasound.... This time it was a lot easier for her to "see" something. So after a couple of minutes, she said: "Alrighty, you are ok! All I see now is one little cyst, but that doesn´t require any treatment."

So I´m ok :o)

You can´t even imagine how glad I was when I walked out of the practice!

I know God answered all the prayers. I know he´s taking good care of me. I know the way I live my life now is a much better way than how I used to live for way too long. 
I think, and THEN act. I pray. I try to do good. I try to give. I try to be a good christian. 

Some of you might laugh about what I just wrote. But I bet some of you do understand the feeling when you finally KNOW you found God and that you are on the right path again!

All I know is that I am already looking forward to my next bible class, to the next service sunday... I want to learn so much more about the bible! 

I hope some of you feel the same way I do. 

Love,
Anni

  1. I do feel the way you do. And there are a lot of us who have finally found our peace in the Trinity! I don't know how to live any other way than in Christ now, and I do not understand how I ever did.
