TESTIMONY TIME: Earlier this month, I had an abnormal mammogram. Same breast as last time. Different location. Throughout the month, I have been up and down, had a mini meltdown and went through the biopsy like my doctors suggested and recommended. This morning while listening to some music, the listening session turned into one of the hardest praises I have ever had. I praised so hard my kitchen shook. Well FB, I just got word that my biopsy results came back and the calcifications that were found are NON CANCEROUS!!! Through the pain and bandages, I am raising my hands saying, HALLELUJAH!!! People, if God is doing this for me…someone who don’t always dot her i’s and cross her t’s…what in the world do you think God will do for you if you give Him a chance and BELIEVE. I NEVER claimed that mammogram finding ya’ll (calcifications in the lymph nodes) but I am human so I did get a little emotional at times. That’s when my husband stepped in and reminded me of the words I had said many times, “I ain’t claiming nothin’.” All I can say is, WON’T HE DO IT!!
