Decision Already Made

My Doctor told me yesterday that I needed to make a decision regarding my thyroid. Some of the nodules on my thyroid are probably cancer, so I can choose to have surgery and have my thyroid taken out, or wait six more months, and have more tests done. I choose to wait, God is my healer, and He is still very much in the healing business. I will wait upon my Deliverer. Blessings to you all.

Praying for you.. and still... wishing you'd get a second opinion. We earthly creatures aren't infallible. I know you'll petition God to guide you...
Love you, dear friend!

Hi! I'm Grace said...

Amen. God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. He heals before, He can heal today and tomorrow as well. We are praying for you.
I just wonder if diabetes and thyroid always go together because my mama used to have both, too.

Huge hugs, Denise!

Your faith is in the Great Physician; that's right where it should be!

In the meantime, before your next re-check, I also urge you to get another opinion.

Donetta said...

Sis that surgery is one of the most successful. Waiting is a choice that you may just be missing Him on.
He sent you the help you need.

Remember the man who drowned...
He made it to the gates and said God why did you let me drown
God said I sent a life boat and you told that captain "no thanks, God will save me"

Forgive me but my BILove had this and the healing was fast we would have lost him. If caught early it is a VERY high success rate cancer. Please reconsider and do not wait. My SILove just had her thyroid out and it was two small holes that were glued not stitched and on about an inch long same thing. Oh please reconsider waiting that long. You could be all healed up for the retreat and feel so much better too by then.

Only you know all your personal risks. Oh I just love ya too much not to speak up.

Gretchen said...

Hi Sweetie. Love you. Sending hugs. Your faith is such an example to us, friend.

Daphine said...

Believing with you for total healing friend!

Cheryl said...

AMEN! STILL PRAYING! NOW MORE SPECIFICALLY!!

Love,
Cheryl

luvmy4sons said...

Oh sweetie...as an RN my first reaction was "Oh no...don't wait..what would be the purpose?" I know God can heal but sometimes He chooses to heal through the hands of a human physician...I am NOT you though...can't presume to know what is best for you. I will be praying that the Lord speak clearly to you in this regard...and pray of course as always for His touch upon you.

Listen to Donetta...that's wise advice. True God can heal you, but he also gives us free will, and common sense. Many have died, because they changed their minds too late about the surgery. Frankly, I don't believe any competent Dr. would make one wait for 6 mos. to do ultrasound on a suspicious thyroid. It's a simple surgery compared to many others!

God love your little heart. My thoughts, heart and prayers are with you always. Yes, our Lord is very much in the healing business. I am here for you!

Love you bunches,
Sonya

Sharon Brumfield said...

I that as glad to come over here and see that there was something about your doctors visit.
I will be praying...you are right...He is the healer. And He is in control and He is faithful to keep that which is committed to Him.
Love you girl....your witness is precious.

Tiffany said...

Denise, you are such a joy and I love seeing your encouraging comments. It makes my day. I believe that our Lord is the Great Physian and Healer. Through Him all things are possible. I do also believe that he brings about His blessings (sometimes that of healing,) through others -to be a blessing in our lives. Maybe He is going to use the skilled hands of a surgeon to bring about that healing in your life. I will be praying with you on this. Love you!

Michele said...

Praying for Gods healing upon you, and the great testimony you will have.And Thanking him now for it.

Angie said...

We will stand with you in prayer! I love you dear sister!

Allison said...

Standing in agreement with you for complete healing!

Anne L.B. said...

Denise, I was just over on Sharilyn's blog reading her post Acceptance of Life. It included this line from the Serenity Poem: Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His will.

Your testimony lines up with this so perfectly! I'm truly blessed, dear sister. I love you bunches!

Bernadine said...

Continuing to keep you in my prayers Denise. Hugs

Lea said...

Hey girl,
I've been thinking about you so much.

HOLYKISSES,
Lea

Martha said...

I am praying for you my dear, may God guide you on a comforting road to health and recovery. Keep us updated!

A Stone Gatherer said...

Question answered! I should be more through in my reading huh!!!

IRENE said...

Let His will be done. If you decided in prayer, which I am sure you did, and let His voice be heard amidst the clutter of the human mind, then it is the right decision. Thinking of you and loving you, and praying for you, my dearest Denise.

Anonymous said...

Praying for you!! But I also have to agree with Donetta...Please reconsider, and listen to that small still voice. I just praise God that they have caught it now, before it become cancer. Much Love.
