Sky Like A Canopy, Original Watercolor, Marcia Carole
Lately, I have been experiencing tiny rashes that seem to linger, then eventually heal, only to find new rashes on my torso in slightly different places. Sometimes, these rashes are accompanied by feelings of fatigue, fever, chills and achiness. Supposedly, other cancer patients experience this. The naturapathic gurus say I am de-toxing; my body is flushing out the cancer because of my diet, the Arimidex, and the supplements.
I have to trust this is what is happening on the cellular level, although I only see the rashes and feel the fevers. This concept of trusting, believing more is going on than my eyes can see, reminds me of a watercolor I have done of the seen and the unseen. (Pictured above.) I began with a verse from Isaiah; He, God, stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and spreads them out like a tent to live in. – Isaiah 40:22b. To me, I think of God as the Master Artist, who sets up His canvases, so to speak, and paints beautiful skyscapes, sunrises and sunsets. I often see His masterpieces while lounging about at the seashore.
I really appreciate seeing God in His art work. When I lie down at the beach, sand in my sun-drenched, warm hair and sea salt in my mouth, I look up at the sky and “see Him” in ways I never can back in suburbia.
I am trying to trust Him today, even though I can’t “see” healing on the cellular or God level. God is using solvents and cleaners, in a way, to clean out the toxins in my body, to make way for new, healthy cell growth. I’ll just have to be patient about it as He goes about His creative work.
Do you not know? Do you not hear?
Has it not been told you from the beginning?
Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth?
It is he who sits above the circle of the earth,
and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers;
who stretches out the heavens like a curtain,
and spreads them like a tent to dwell in;
who brings princes to nothing,
and makes the rulers of the earth as emptiness. Isaiah 40: 22, 23
