This is from my friend who has cancer, I cried as I read these words especially the part of a new name when we get to heaven..

Yea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!The time has really gone by fast, praise our Lord. I'm going in early to do my last yucky chemo in the morning. That is assuming my white blood cell count is up and I feel like it will be. Three weeks later I will begin my 2 round of treatment which they say is a "piece of cake" compared to this one.Everytime my treatment rolls around I have been charged up for it....I know that it is our God because the natural man would be in dread. I praise God that He is so faithful, He is so attentive to our cry. While others don't always understand, He gets it...."He is acquainted with all sorrow". While others have loved me so faithfully, I know they get tired but He "never grows tired or weary, He has engraved my name on the palm of His hand".Last night at Bible Study we we're talking about how we will get a new name in heaven. I've wondered why....I believe it is so we will totally be defined by Him and His thoughts toward us, even our new name that He will give us. Everytime someone will call us by our new name, we will be associated only with Him. His belief of who we are........we haven't yet received our new names but we do have His belief of who we are......."But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a Holy nation, a people for God's own possession that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light." What a beautiful thought that I belong to Him, I am His possession. It's important to know "who" you belong to when your in the fire. He has stayed with me the whole time, never leaving me and being long-suffering with me when I needed time.....He has grieved with me.....walked with me in the wilderness and yes, prepared a table there. I have feasted with our King in the wilderness, the Bread of Life and the fresh Living Water. He has been my sustainer and my joy.......I sit here with tears remembering how many times He has lifted my head......."
even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil; for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort me. Thou dost prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; Thou hast anointed my head with oil; my cup overflows"...........He has caused my cup to overflow!!! As Corrie Ten Boom said, "there is no pit that is deep, that He is not deeper still".I pray my cup will overflow to others tomorrow in the chemo room...........I am indebted to you for your love and prayers....thank you!Love to all,
