Timing is everything. I believe that, I truly do. Years ago I started to share my natural health story of overcoming Pancreatic Cancer naturally here on the blog. I initially wanted to share it in book form but too many things stopped me/us from doing so, so instead to the blog I went. That was a good way to share it. A few months ago though, something brought the subject up again and this time the timing was right. I believe God’s timing is perfect if we choose to be patient and wait. Waiting until the timing is revealed to “go ahead” with whatever God has put on your heart or has opened the door for to happen. This is exactly what happened in our case. The door was now opened because the timing was right, so together Mom and I with the help of many others began to walk through it. I want to give my Mom the spotlight because truth be told, she was the one to get my story ready for publishing. That was a HUGE process, encompassing a LOT of stuff she knew and didn’t know how to do. Mom learned a lot and dare I say Mom is now very savvy in the whole publishing process, especially regarding the computer end of it. She may beg to differ on this though 😉
God opens door for us but I believe we get the choice if we want to walk through the door. Each and everyday we get chances to walk through doors. Some doors we aren’t ready to open and other ones we are. Some doors we think we should walk through may not actually be the timing that God had in mind, but Papa God honors our choices never the less. I’m not perfect and don’t say that I am. I fall short everyday.
As Mom and I walked through the “door” to embark on the publishing journey this felt right. Now I’m not going to lie despite it feeling right in heart and mind it was difficult for many reasons. The first and biggest being neither of us had ever done this before so didn’t really know where to start or how to go about this. But that didn’t stop us. Mom dug right in and was off in no time researching and finding the right publishing fit for us. And guess what? Papa God opened the doors leading us to exactly where the right if was. Funny? Or, as I’d say, Papa God’s hand at work!
It seems almost surreal that today we have my health story in book form. Maybe it’s because I’d went back and forth so many times of should I or shouldn’t I publish it? Or maybe it’s because it was such a long process from starting the first drafts of writing my story in 2015 and now it’s 2022, 7 years later and sitting in a soft cover in my hand. 7 years… I’m actually laughing because that’s how long it took from start to finish for my health to be reversed. God has a way of making us laugh and I’d say there’s an importance to the number 7 going on here.
Let me clarify that my sharing of this happening isn’t to strut around or get a pat on my back. Rather, it’s just the same as when I started sharing it on the blog, to help people. For those that may be curious as to what I went through, to know there are “other” ways of healing naturally of cancer, and to inspire the reader to live a life of health (whatever that may be to them as a bio individual), and to help that person that is in the midst of something here and now. My story is for anyone to read that wants to live a better and more healthy lifestyle whether it be little or big. As I say, “your life your choice”, we all get to choose each and everyday what we do or don’t do in virtually all areas of our life. Are we breathing life into ourselves or not?
Today, I hope we all choose to walk through the door that was meant for us. That we would know the door and the timing of when to walk through it. If the timing isn’t right, don’t be afraid to be patient and wait until the timing is right. No need to rush God’s timing as his timing is perfect!
Before we part ways on this beautiful day I’d like to give a shout out to Mom for doing so much of the publishing process to allow it to get to book form. To my Dad for helping edit. To Jean, whom also helped with the editing process. My brother for encouragement and helping with some computer tech issues. To Sharee, for encouragement, editing, and your beautiful book acknowledgement. To Jeanne for your prayers through my journey while I was in the midst of sickness, to being healed, and now to publishing and your kind book acknowledgement. And, to the MANY others that helped with this publishing process whether it was big or small, it all made a difference. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
