The Rock of my Salvation

I was so overwhelmed the last couple of days about my Mammogram report. Two days ago I decided to call my Doctor to find out if she could shed some light on the report for me. I left a message with her answering service and the next morning (Yesterday) my Doctor finally called me back. She read the radiology report to me over the phone. A density was found in my upper right breast. There were no signs of malignancies, suspicious spots or clusters. She used several large medical words I did not understand nor do I remember. But, the bottom line was this. It did not look like cancer. I asked her what density meant. She explained that in a lot of cases when your breast is positioned in a weird way during the test, it can look dense. In most cases density is just from the position of your breast at the time of the test so I do not have anything serious to worry about. They just have to by law make sure that your breast is okay for sure, by getting a clearer picture of it. I was so relieved. I rejoiced all day yesterday. Now today, as I reflect back over the sequence of events I can only come to one conclusion. Life is short and comes with unexpected twists and turns. It is important to have a good foundation in our lives so that when those twists and turns do come and you get blindsided by them you will not crumble. Be careful where you build your life house.

"He is like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built." Luke 6:48

Even though I was shaken by the storm I knew I had to press into Him in this storm I may have had to face. I was very scared. I was shaken, but I did not crumble. I felt like I was aboout to but, I didn't. This whole experience has just given me more resolve than ever to press on in my journey to lose weight. To reach my 40 pound goal. No matter what lie comes at me. I know where my house is built now. On Him my Rock.

"He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is he." Deuteronomy 32:4

He is the rock of my salvation. The one I am built upon. So that when the storms of life enrage around me, and the seas begin to toss high upon the shores in my life. I can rest and know without a doubt He will protect me and keep me standing. I can't wait to see how much more He shows me on my adventure to lose weight.
