the journey is about to begin

Oh Lord You’ve searched me
You know my way
Even when I fail You
I know You love me

Your Holy presence
Surrounding me
In every season
I know You love me
I know You love me

At the cross I bow my knee
Where Your blood was shed for me
There’s no greater love than this
You have overcome the grave
Your glory fills the highest place
What can separate me now

 You go before me
You shield my way
Your hand upholds me
I know You love me

You tore the veil
You made a way
When You said that it is done

And when the earth fades
Falls from my eyes
And You stand before me
I know You love me
I know You love me   

                                            at the cross/hillsong

i’m counting the hours….the ticking of the clock…..and when the right time comes, i’ll be fixing myself… start a new adventure….i’m going back to treatment…a crucial phase in my journey with leukemia…..i’m scared….but i’m praying and trusting Him…..with the hope that when this phase is through…..i’ll come out alive…

i’m so overwhelmed with the support and love that i’ve been getting not only from my family and friends but also from people that i hardly knew or those that i’ve just met online…thank you for the prayers that were offered and for the prayers that will be offered for me……for the financial and moral support that i’ve been getting….for the encouraging words…for the spiritual boost…..

i know this treatment will make or break me…..but wherever this journey will lead me…rest assured that i’ll give it a good fight……my life is in His hands….and i know He will be there for me every step of the way.

a guest blogger will try to update this blog especially the blood chart. please continue to pray for me. God bless all of you.

    i hope you find strength in the lyrics of this song from Point of Grace called You Will Never Walk Alone:

    Along life’s road
    There will be sunshine and rain
    Roses and thorns, laughter and pain
    And ‘cross the miles
    You will face mountains so steep
    Deserts so long and valleys so deep
    Sometimes the Journey’s gentle
    Sometimes the cold winds blow
    But I want you to remember
    I want you to know

    You will never walk alone
    As long as you have faith
    Jesus will be right beside you all the way
    You may feel you’re far from home
    But home is where He is
    And he’ll be there down every road
    You will never walk alone
    The path will wind

    And you will find wonders and fears
    Labors of love and a few falling tears
    Across the years
    There will be some twists and turns
    Mistakes to make and lessons to learn
    Sometimes the journey’s gentle
    Sometimes the cold winds blow
    But I want you to remember where ever you may

    Jesus knows your joy, Jesus knows your need
    He will go the distance with you faithfully

    God bless lex. I know you can make it. See you soon.

    Prayer for the Sick

    ALMIGHTY GOD, and Heavenly Father, whose providence orders all things both in heaven and earth; we humble ourselves before Thee with the deepest reverence; acknowledging that even in your severest dispensations you have gracious designs towards us. We beseech Thee to look down in Your wonted goodness and mercy upon Lex, Your servant, upon whom You have laid your afflicting hand. Sanctify Your fatherly correction to him, and grant that he may receive it with meekness and bear it with patience. Suffer him not, O Lord, to murmur or repine at the severity of his trials; but let all Your visitations be so blessed to him, by the consolations of Your Holy Spirit, that they may be the means of weaning him more and more from the world of sin, of setting his affections on things above, and not on things on the earth, and of bringing him nearer to Thee in true devotion of heart. We know, O Heavenly Father, that You do not willingly afflict and grieve the children of men; and that of Your goodness You have caused this sickness to befall Your servant [or have allowed it]. O grant him such a measure of Your grace, as may enable him cheerfully to submit his will to Yours, and to regard this visitation as a paternal chastisement from You, to promote his spiritual good. And if, in the days of health and prosperity, he has at any time and in any manner forgotten You, and turned aside from Your holy way; O merciful God, let not his past faults provoke You to turn Your face from him, now that he flies unto You in this his time of trouble. Shut not up Your tender mercies in displeasure, but for the merits of Your dear Son, and through His all-prevailing intercession, pardon all his sins, and restore him to Your love and favor. Support him, O Lord, under all his pains and infirmities; perfect his repentance; increase and strengthen his faith; incite his obedience; and expand his charity. Lay not more upon him than You wilt enable him to bear, and with the temptations that You permit to assail him, do You, according to Your promise, provide a way for his escape.

    Bless the means which are being employed for his relief; and recovery; grant that they may be such, and so directed that they may bring about, in Your good time, that desirable result. But if You hast otherwise determined, grant, we beseech You, that the more the outward man decay, so much the more the inner man may be strengthened and renewed by Your Holy Spirit; and give him grace so to take Your visitation, that after this painful life is ended, he may dwell with You, in life everlasting, through the merits and mediation of our blessed Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.

    God bless lex. I’m always praying for you. You are a wonderful man and a great friend.

    I would like to share this to you. It’s one of my fave hillsong songs. It’s called Still.

    Hide me now under your wings
    Cover me within your mighty hand.

    When the oceans rise and thunders roar
    I will soar with you above the storm
    Father you are king over the flood
    I will be still and know you are God

    Find rest my soul in Christ a-lone
    Know his pow’r in quietness and trust

    tsi, remember this:

    what leukemia cannot do

    It cannot cripple love.
    It cannot shatter hope.
    It cannot corrode faith.
    It cannot eat away peace.
    It cannot destroy confidence.
    It cannot kill friendship.
    It cannot shut out memories.
    It cannot silence courage.
    It cannot invade the soul.
    It cannot reduce eternal life.
    It cannot quench the spirit.

    i know you are giving it a good fight. i’m always here for you.Hugs for my tsi!

    Friends, thank you for the prayers. Lex’ family would like to extend their appreciation for all your love and support. God bless.
