I was recently hospitalized (still am actually) and all that I had with me in the waiting room, ER, and the first little bit of my hospitalization was my iPod. So I had my Bible, my commentaries, and many of my books with me the whole time helping to direct my thoughts rightly toward God. I only had intermittent internet connections, just enough to download the books for offline reading I knew that I'd want. So thank you so much for developing the iPod app.

Jacob,

I'm sorry to hear you are in the hospital -- I will pray for you. 

I enjoy your contributions to these forums.  I started reading Simeon's Horae Homileticae based on your endorsement a month or so back.  It is wonderful and thought provoking.  In case you are not aware, it is available on the iPod.

Regards,

Scott

Thank you, all. Just had a bone marrow biopsy. They're suspecting lymphoma. 

It's good to know that there is not a single cancer cell in my body (or any cell anywhere) that doesn't obey my Father. So I know that this will work out for good, and I know that it is best. Thanks for your praying; and thank you Logos for a portable library. I'm here on my netbook able to read, and I was even able to take my iPod with my to my biopsy and have my Bible immediately available right there.

Oh, Jacob. I'm glad to hear you are in such good spirits about the news. I pray that they're wrong, but if you do have to go through treatment for cancer, I pray for strength and endurance for you, peace and hope for your family, wisdom and skill and success for the doctors, and God to be glorified throughout by your testimony and your positive attitude, and that he would soon make it clear how he means this for good in the long run...  Blessings, and keep us posted.

God, Please guide Jacob's doctors; grant him peace of mind as you fulfill your purpose--thank you for providing him access to your Word during this challenging trial, and ask that through it you reveal your will.  I plea for you to restore his health.

Praise God! I'm glad you got it and have found it beneficial. The more I read of Simeon, the more I generally appreciate his pastoral insight to the text.

Prayers ascend.  May the LORD bless you and keep you, make His face shine upon you, and give you His peace.

Jacob,

What a testimony to God!

Many say things like this when it's not real, and things are good but God has given you the strength to worship during difficult times.

Brother, you have blessed me with your attitude.

Jacob, I will pray for you, and you are on the prayer list in the bulletin, so others praying also.

I read this thread this morning before church, and was preaching from Psalm 46, and I used your quote about cancer cells obeying God, it just showed how well you understand and live by  Psalm 46:10 (ESV) 10 “Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”  I admire your faith.

Biopsy results back today. No cancer! So we don't know what's causing the nodules on the lungs or the super-low platelets and bleeding; but very good to know it's not cancer. THank you all for your prayers and encouragement. I am grateful to God for this trial and for what looks like is the preliminary outcome.

Praise God for one good report. However we still are praying until every question is favorably resolved.

That is wonderful news, Jacob. Continuing to pray for answers in what is causing the symptoms, that you might be relieved of them soon.
