At the Edge of Our Faith





At the Edge of Our Faith   by Carol Dee Meeks


“It is the friendliest kind of cancer,” the doctor

said. “I don’t think it will visit him again,” he added

with a smile.

Basal Cell Carcinoma, a malignant epithelial tumor-a

skin cancer, was born on my husband’s nose from too much New

Mexico sun. Indeed, it is the best kind of cancer to make

its home on your body if cancer has to camp on your door

steps.

But the days we spent waiting for the report led us to

the edge of our faith. Like the wolf howls at midnight on

the canyon’s rim, we stood and watched our future slip into

another chapter of recovery: a stroke, a colonoscopy scare,

now this.

How the imagination can be like a run-away-train.

waiting, listening, and praying for good news-the friendly

kind of cancer, dropped us to our knees. At the edge of our

faith, we learned to really lean on our Lord and Savior. We

accepted His grace, more than we deserved, and took His hand

He held out to us. We’ll overcome this obstacle as we’ve

overcome our other health issues.

He Hung on a Cross for Me
When I have a bad day and feel sorry for myself, I try to think of the hours Christ spent before Easter morning and His crucifixion. That morning He brought me freedom, forgiveness of sins, and death�s victory. Then I fall on my knees and thank Him for what He did for me and for loving me so deeply. Jesus hung on a tree in agony for me. He was bruised, spit on, and humiliated that I might live a life free of rituals. He was bruised, spit on, and humiliated that I would be guided by His...

Prayer is Powerful Exciting
by Carol Dee Meeks I’m finding late in life that prayer is a journey. We have to learn to pray, because prayer is essential for a daily work with Jesus. In Mark 11:23, it states that we “shall not doubt in our heart that what we are praying for will come to pass, and we shall receive it.” The key is to believe we will receive that which we ask for, if we keep our eyes on Him.
