I was reading from Psalm 116 today from the New Living Translation.
The words describe exactly what happened to me when I was suffering from malignant cancer.
I love The Lord because he hears and answers my prayers.
Because he bends down and listens,
I will pray as long as I have breath.
Death had its hands around my throat
The terrors of the grave overtook me.
I saw only sorrow and trouble.
I called on the name of The Lord,
Please Lord save me.
How kind The Lord is! How good he is!
So merciful this God of ours!
I was facing death, and then he saved me.
Now I can rest for The Lord has been so good to me.
He has saved me from death, my eyes from tears,
My feet from stumbling.
So I can walk in the Lord’s presence as I live here on earth!
It is good to believe in God.
