my step dad died last saturday. he was diagnosed with bone cancer early last month, and given 6 months to live. im thinking it was a lot more advanced than they thought.
im not really sad, though, because a few days before he died, he finally entered God’s witness relocation program. i think he was 71.
what i do feel is a little disappointed. i feel sad for my mom. she is a born again catholic, but so many times she has put the teachings of her church above the Word of God, and it has disconnected her faith and substituted wishing instead.
my stand is this;
God is not a man that He should lie, neither the son of man that He should repent: hath He said, and will He not do it? or hath He spoken, and shall He not make it good? numbers 26:19
so this is what i believe, that God sent His healing to dad, and mom and i even agreed to receive it. i received it. i believed i received it when i prayed. mom didnt. mom began to prepare for his death.
so, argue with me if you want to, but ive been around a while, and ive seen God answer His own Word over and over again. and His Word makes His will known. i dont believe in playing "guess what Gods will is". if i dont know, i ask, and i search the Word. then i pray according to His Word, and i know im praying according to His will.
and if i know im praying according to His will, i know i have the request im making of Him. simple as that. and God always does His part. always.
never the less, i am happy about one thing. even tho it was only days befoe he died, my step dad recieved Jesus into his heart.
big sigh of relief.
