God is good. Dad is cancer-free.

Got word this afternoon that the results came back and my Dad’s cancer is gone.  Officially, it’s called remission.  And, also officially, we are celebrating!

I’m teaching through Nehemiah right now and this reminds me of one of my favorite verses in the Bible showing it would be (1) naive to pray and do nothing else and (2) silly to fight your heart out without praying:

But we prayed to our God and posted a guard day and night to meet this threat.  -Nehemiah 4:9

Someone once told me their approach to the challenges of life:  Pray like it depends on God.  Work like it depends on you.  I see that combination being powerful all the time.  Sure was with my Dad.
