Waiting on the Lord

 I didn't want to make you all wait longer to find out what the doctor said and I would appreciate the continued prayers & would like them focused in certain areas, unless of course, the Holy Spirit guides you to pray otherwise.  So here's what we found out.

The doctor got the bone scan results and from what I understand from what he said, it looks pretty much the same as the Pet Scan that was done back in November.  So that seems to be decent news.  Praise God!  The tumor marker number was 200 in Nov, 204 in Jan, and 278 in Feb.  They drew another one today and I am fully expecting it to go down.  Why?  Because God has done some work in me and I think that when the doctor calls on Monday that it will have gone down.  And that's actually what I'd like for all the prayer warriors to be specifically praying for; that number to drastically drop.  The estrogen number is down to 12 but we are looking to get that number down to 0.  Since it hasn't come down any farther, there are a few options, I could start another shot regimen that will be 2 shots every 2 weeks on top of the 2 shots I get monthly.  Another option is that they laparoscopically remove the ovaries.  This decision also hinges a little on how the marker number comes back.  So I ask for God's wisdom and direction in the next step of this journey.  I will wait upon the Lord's guidance and let him renew the strength inside of me.  He has revealed a few things to me in the past few weeks and though I don't feel quite led to share all the details just yet on here, I am sure the time will come soon when I do.  Trusting God is easy & hard all at the same time. lol  I'm sure many of you can understand where I'm coming from with that statement.  So we wait some more.  And I am truly not worried about this next number.  I have also been praying for God's wisdom & guidance to be shown to my doctors and medical staff and that they won't steer me wrong.  In all of this I am seeking for God to ordain my steps.  I know that when I am seeking Him, He will answer and guide me, just as he has been.

Thank you for your continued prayers & support & walking alongside of us through this.  I am especially thankful that despite this attack from the devil being meant to tear my faith down, God is using it instead to draw me closer to Him and draw my family closer to Him & build our Faith!  He IS faithful. He is merciful, He is compassion, He IS the great I AM, He is my strength, my portion, He is love, he is the Lion of Judah.  We will overcome and win this war.  Praise God for healing me!  Praise God for the truth of His Word!  Praise God for the promises He has given us in His word!  Bless the Lord o my Soul and all that is within me Bless His holy name! Psalm 103.  This is what I have been meditating on from God's word.  And a side note if you are wondering, I have made it through Genesis, Job, Exodus, and I am reading Leviticus right now.  Very cool thing is that God has used some of the things I have recently read to be shared with me by others when talking about this journey.  God is using verses that are fresh in my mind to solidify how cool he works things out.  And reminds me that He works things together for the good of those that love Him and are called to His purpose (Romans 8:28).

Psalm 103

New King James Version (NKJV)

Praise for the Lord’s Mercies

A Psalm of David.

103 Bless the Lord, O my soul;
And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And forget not all His benefits:
Who forgives all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases,
Who redeems your life from destruction,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
Who satisfies your mouth with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.


  1. One sentence jumps right out at me and I too deal with this with Madison....WHO HEALS ALL YOUR DISEASES....PLEASE JESUS HEAL....JEANETTE. She and her family have been your warriors through this whole thing. Renew her like the eagles....let her soar into healthiness and may you restore her body to new life. In loving Jesus name! AMEN! Love you Charlotte

  2. Thank you for taking the time to update so quickly!! Been thinking about you all day!!
    That tumor marker needs to cooperate and go down, down, down!!! Hoping soon with those results you'll have some clarity on how to deal with the estrogen.
    :muchlove always!

  3. Your faith is strengthened and so is mine.....every time you lean on the Lord and share this journey, my faith is strengthened....this journey you are on is bringing so many people to their knees....so many more in the Kingdom of God!! You are an amazing testimony and I will keep praying that God will work through you to share His love to others. As people see what He is doing in your life and through your attitude, they have no choice but to question or believe! That is what we are here for, my friend, to do His work!! You are doing it and holding firm to the Truth!! What a pleasure it has been to pray with you and for you.....and now I will pray for amazing numbers and healing for you....let God show em'. Love you Jeannette <3

  4. You truly are an inspiration, and you have brought so many to the realization of how God does heal, and teach us how to ask. God Bless you and bring those numbers down. We are all praying for God's blessings for you, and with you. Keep the strength, keep fighting, keep inspiring, and most of all, keep that beautiful faith. I personally have had my eyes opened during this journey you are on. For that, I Thank you, and I Thank God.

  5. I was touched how your "Waiting on the Lord" theme on March 25 was the Jesus Calling devotion on March 26 ... beginning with 'Waiting on Me means directing your attention to Me in hopeful anticipation of what I will do. So powerful.
    I just found the Chronological Life Application Study Bible in NLT version and am amazed at how much it is helping my readings come alive. Do you have a Chronological Bible or are you going according to a reading plan?
