But he answered and said, “It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it to dogs.” Matthew 15:26
May 2011, seven years ago, I was diagnosed with colon cancer. The cancer was discovered through a routine colonoscopy. I had no symptoms whatsoever, which is why I encourage people to have the routine colonoscopy. It is recommended at the age of 50; however, if there is a family history of colon cancer, even if you are not 50, your insurance will cover the test. I believe in being an advocate for your health. We only get one body and one life here on this earth, and we should take care of the temple that we have been given. “What? Know you not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which you have of God, and you are not your own?” 1 Corinthians 6:19.
I share my testimony at every opportune time not only to encourage others, but that I too never fail to remember what the Lord has done for me. In addition, I have written previously about my healing on my Blog, DearEncourager. However, this time I wanted to share some valuable lessons I learned while going through my healing process that I believe will help others on their healing journey. Therefore, I have written a new mini book with the same title, “Healing: It Is Our Birth Right” and have posted it on my website: www.dearencourager.com. Please read, share, be blessed and be healed in Jesus’ mighty name.
