Keeping life

Tomorrow, I begin the maintenance regimen of chemotherapy, using the drug called Rituxan. It was discovered a few years ago, and targets the affected b cells of those of us who are overcoming lymphoma. Every three months for a long time, I will receive this targeted therapy. It is a discovery that is an answer to many people's prayer for the cure for cancer. Miracle drugs and doctors can only do what they can do, and the words that come from one's mouth affect one's health as much if not more so than this amazing drug. Just by guarding what comes out of one's mouth keeps one's health, whereas opening wide one's mouth and saying whatever one wants to say, will bring it to ruin, according to Proverbs 13:3.

Lord, forgive me and others who say and who have said things in the heat of a moment that ruins the abundant life you have for us. Grant us spiritual discipline to use our mouth to say things that are birthed of love, agree with your word, and contribute to making everyone and everything around us better.

  1. I was wondering when this was going to start! Sorry we didn't have more time to chat last night. I hope the Rituxan goes well and there are no crazy side effects. Let us know if you need anything.
    love you!
