It never just rains it pours but God is Good All the Time…..

Rain 1I would like to share with you what happened to me after Ron’s Update last week and to also thank you again for your wonderful caring response to our distressing news.

Both Ron and I were very touched by the Christian Love and Compassion you showed us two Aussies, of course we have our family and close friends Love, support and Prayers but when strangers, well that is as far as distance is concerned, I Love all of you so your not really strangers in my heart, but when you took the time both on our Blog and also those who sent us e-mails to offer encouragement and Prayer support, it makes you realize  just how small our world is and for us also confirms again how special our Christian Family is regardless of where they live.

Just a quick update on Ron before I share my recent Storm with you and God’s wonderful faithfulness to provide needed help.

Ron said to say thank you once again, he is at a Convention this weekend in Brisbane, unfortunately he still has not seen the Oncologist, they lost his referral and his Doctors notes, he only heard from them yesterday, he now has an appointment at the end of next week, they have moved the Surgery to a new location so that is why there has been a mess up.

Hopefully they will start treatment soon or as some of you and I’m praying for, God will heal Ron like He did me with my Breast Cancer and my other chronic illnesses, some of them were life threatening too, yes I still have health problems as my body is wearing out with age and my disabled feet can be very painful if I walk too much but I feel God’s arms around me and have no fear for tomorrow, I know I do not walk alone and He carries me when needed, it’s so wonderful that our Abba Father’s arms are never ending.

Rain 2

But unfortunately as they say it does not just rain it pours and after hearing about Ron I found I was unable to walk or even sit without intense pain, to condense… when riding my Mobility Scooter, I hit a rough patch on the footpath and it once again caused a pinched nerve in my Spine. I started to worry about my ability to be able to care for Ron if he was ill from Chemo or had to have an Operation, I was also starting a Counselling Degree at Collage and there was no way I could attend the Introduction day with being in so much pain.

God tells us not to worry and looking back now once again I have been assured that we don’t need to, He will always be there for us especially in the Storms, No He does not condemn us for worrying or being frightened, they are not sin, they are emotions we need to respond to and resolve, like anger is or we can become sick both Physically and Mentally and  yes they can also lead to sin  but He does reassure us that we can Trust Him to work it out for good and yes He did!, He did!, He did!

I went to the Doctor because as I shared I couldn’t even sit without pain and the pain killers were not helping either as they were making me very disoriented and I kept falling asleep, God’s Balm did give me some relief but the pain returned. I was indeed upset and worrying, especially when told there was a long waiting list both in the Hospital and with the Radiologist to have the procedure done to stop my pain, although it is not a permanent remedy it does give relieve from nerve pain for up to six months.

I prayed hard and than explained to the Receptionist why I was so upset not just for the pain but my inability to care for Ron if needed, she asked me to wait and came back and said the Doctor and Radiologist had agreed to stay back and do the procedure for me which took up to an hour or longer. I was so thankful to God and to all of them believe me and I now have no pain from the pinched nerve, they even provided this procedure without the added cost other Radiologists charge or even charging extra because most of it was done after hours.

Something at that time also helped me understand how great God’s Love and provision is, the Receptionist’s husband who had Bowel Cancer and almost died on the Operating table is now completely free of Cancer and doesn’t even need the bag he had to use and it was why she understood and got the needed help for me.

As I shared in Doorway of Hope, I was also offered by the Collage to do my Counselling Degree on line, which means I will be able to care for Ron and still continue to Blog too instead of having to attend the Collage during the day, which would have made these if not impossible very difficult and no doubt I would have had to give up my Studies.

Once again even before our Storm our Loving Abba Father reassured me by reminding me about the song “When you walk through the Storm” I was commenting on Terri’s Blog and remembered the Post below, where I had shared in Memory of my Mum and a Story about hearing God speak to us, when I went to get the link for Terri and this was the day before we knew about Ron’s Cancer, I found it also mentioned the song, so I attached the YouTube on it… now I know why, how can we ever doubt His constant Love for us.

In the Storm

God is so very good all the time!

Isaiah 43:1-3 – Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.”

Jeremiah 29 :11-12 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the Children of men.

Christian Love in our Unity in Christ Jesus – Anne.

  2. Patty B says:

    Been praying so I know that God has both you covered during this storm. I did not realize you were a beast cancer survivor, I am 14 yrs cancer free how about you?


    • Thank you Patty for your continued prayers they mean a lot to both of us. Yes I had suspected breast Cancer, the Doctor felt it was very advanced and she booked me into have the Mammogram and Ultra Sound on the Friday, it was almost a week to wait and having just lost my Sister because of Bowel Cancer, I was a mess but on the Thursday I said to God; if this is how my life is going to end on earth than I’m ready to come to be with You and I than experienced the most wonderful Peace, I no longer felt frightened.

      When the woman was doing the tests the next day, she was taking so long I asked what was wrong, she had a diagram from my Doctor showing where the lump was but she said she couldn’t find it, that was over 5 years ago and all my Mammograms have been clear since and I have had no more lumps and just like the other life threatening conditions I have been healed from, it never returned.

      I received your E-mail Patty, thank you, I might give you a quick call latter this morning your time, just so you can hear the accent that I haven’t got, or at least that is what my Aussie friends tell me.

      Christian Love Always – Anne


      • Patty B says:

        Bless your heart – God is so good. During my treatments I gave my life to God and His peace just filled the deepest part of my soul. There are no words to describe it. It would be a few months later that I knew the chemo and radiation worked – wish God could have physically healed Tom, but I know He granted him much better healing. And God is indeed the true comforter.


        • Very True Patty and yes how He comforts us we comfort others in the same way, both of us gave our problem to Him as a child would to their Parents and so we experienced His Peace, even though we were still in physical danger.

          God tells us Tom’s time on earth was known to Him before he was born which is the same with us Patty, thankfully Tom does not remember any of the suffering only those things that brought him Joy, like you did and because Tom is in your heart you will never really be apart, you also have wonderful memories Patty of the times you shared with Tom, I never had these with my Babies but Heaven is a place of extreme Joy which overflows continually so I give thanks that they never suffered and have only known Joy.

          Blessings -Anne


          • Patty B says:

            what comforting words – thank you and yes heaven is a place of extreme joy and I am filled with joy knowing Tom is with our Lord – and the most wonderful gift God gave me was the closeness that both Tom and I still share.
            I am sorry I did not know that you had young ones that did not live on this earth for long. May Gods joy and peace continue to fill your life.


            • Yes Patty, I have 7 babies in Heaven, 3 girls were Stillborn and the rest died at almost 5 months gestation, in those days they knew very little compared to today and I also may have been responsible, it’s a long story to share here. But I have shared quiet a bit about my early life on this Blog but not all yet.

              Perhaps you would like to read some of my Posts about my those years, I will leave the link to a Post about my Childhood for you, it also has some links to other Posts. What about you Patty, do you have some Posts you would like to share with me, I would love to read them.


              Christian Love Always – Anne.


              • Patty B says:

                I am so sorry for your lose – how devastating for you and your husband.
                Thank you for the links, I have it saved and will read them tomorrow when I have nothing on my agenda so I can read them with a nice cup of tea. I look forward to reading them. I am a fairly new blogger so I don’t have many articles in my own blog. I did save a few from other blogs and will send them to you. I don’t save the website, rather I copy and paste them to be saved on my thumbdrive or now on my ipad.


  3. My thoughts and prayers to you and Ron during this very difficult time my sister in Christ. I pray for God’s healing, for miracle of healing. Despite of the pain and sickness you both are facing, you manage to inspire and give comfort, breathing life to God’s generous love and mercy. Yes, God is good, all the time. I believe he will calm the storm for you and Ron. Please tell Ron he is in our prayers. Take care and God be with you always.


    • Thank you for your Loving and kind words of comfort and support dear Island Traveler and for your Prayers, we both are very grateful and value them very much.

      Ron’s appointment with the Oncologist is on Thursday and we will know more than, he has been in pain this week so hopefully they will be able to help relieve this but I’m still hoping for a Miracle, thank you for praying for one.

      Christian Love Always from both of us – Anne.


  4. Once again even before our Storm with Ron and my pain, our Loving Abba Father reassured me by reminding me about the song above “When you walk through the Storm” how can we ever doubt His constant Love for us.

    Blessings – Anne


  5. andtheword says:

    Once again you have shared what a wonderful God we have. Praying all will be well for Ron, and that you are able to look after him, in the way he will need. Praying also that your back is all well now, as it is hard to get motivated to do anything when you are in pain, and you already have more than enough pain from various other body parts, without a pinched nerve into the mix.

    Your sister in Christ


    • Thank you for your concern Vivienne and yes my feet are the pits but I’m very thankful for God’s healing intervention over the years or I wouldn’t be writing this and you wouldn’t have known me except in Heaven.

      To be honest, I really abused my body with dangerous dieting and slimming pills when I was young, and with starving myself, so I only have myself to blame, we live and learn.

      But Thankfully I have no pain in my Back or side now and I’m very grateful for this blessing.

      See you sometime this week, I will phone and let you know what day.

      Christian Love Always – Anne

    Caught up with your post…Things should go well now God is on your side sharing your walk and will see you through your times of trouble…Love to you both Barb


    • Thank you Barb, I appreciate very much your visiting and sharing and the great news is God is always on our side, and always was, He knew us even before we were conceived and planed a wonderful future for us but of course we have to search for Him with all our heart and not put worldly things first or we won’t know Him for ourselves just what others tell us about Him.

      Christian Love dear friend, looking forward to your thoughts on Destiny, either sent by e-mail or on your Blog.


  7. Ron says:

    Yes Anne how great is our God, He is interested in the every detail of our lives. It`s only when we look back that we can see His handiwork and how He has been there for us . No doubt there are occasions for all of us , when we have looked back ,and realised that He has been there interceding for us. We have so little to complain about and much to give Him thanks for, Praise God !



    • Thanks for commenting Love you must be really tired after traveling to the Convention and back and having to concentrate all day, I sometimes wonder how you keep going, you really amaze me but than you have always been this why and young in your focus too .

      Yes as you said when we see how much God has done for us we can’t complain and it is why we need to always give Thanks.

      See you tomorrow Love – Anne


  8. T says:

    Yes God is good all the time and all the time God is good! I will continue to pray for your and Ron. Here is a link to a song I like called Praise You in this Storm I hope it works.


    • Thank you dear T we very much appreciate your Prayer support, it has been a heavy Storm and there is still dark clouds but we don’t walk alone, yes God is good all the time.

      Thank you also T for the awesome song, as you can see the link worked, loved the words and yes all God gives is good and He takes away the fear and worry and gives us strength to endure.

      Christian Love Always from both of us – Anne
