23rd March Chemo Day 30

And yet again another good day for Jane… she continues to do more and more and seems much stronger than at any time over the past month or so. However previously, some 48 hours after each of the past chemo infusions she’s started to feel really ill and severely fatigued. I guess we ought to expect more of the same but who knows what God might do? If we keep praying and rejoicing in the goodness of God he might yet reveal his mercy and deliver Jane in some way from this ordeal. At the very least her increasing strength ought to moderate the toxic side effects of chemotherapy.

Jane was just saying how peaceful our home feels at the moment as though the presence of God himself is with us… which it is of course! I know he’s always caring for us and in a very real way he is carrying us through this trial but those special moments when the manifest presence of God is revealed remind me of our future destiny. One day we shall be with him, we shall see him face to face and we shall enjoy his pleasure for all eternity. There will be no more sickness, no injustice and no more sin… the world will become the perfect place it was ever intended to be.

Nehemiah 8v10 ‘Don’t be dejected and sad, for the joy of the Lord is your strength’ (NLT)
