Signs of Restoration
On Monday of this week I received the words, “It’s gone, you are cancer free”. Hearing these words brought a great sigh of relief and I am praising God for this victory. One of my great joys has come with the fact that I am beginning to see real signs of restoration. These signs are coming in the form of something that used to drive me crazy… black roots.
Yes that’s right, I have a multitude of tiny black hairs growing in and I’m thrilled. What used to send me reaching for the bottle of hair color is now serving as a reminder to me that God is faithful to his word:
And the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will Himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. 1 Peter 5:10
As a wait for my total restoration I’m thanking God that my suffering has an end and that my restoration has an author who said that He would see to it Himself. All praise and glory be to God!
