Come to Jesus…and Live!

About bwebbjr

A grandfather, father, husband, man, and a child of God who is following Christ Jesus and working out his salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work IN me, both to will and to work for His good pleasure (Philippians 2:12-13). I dodged my first bullet with cancer when a cancerous polyp was removed in a sigmoid colectomy surgery in August 2007. Four years later, in the midst of a second colectomy surgery we discovered I had Stage IV metastatic colon cancer. Rather than colectomy surgery I had colostomy surgery, which now means the colostomy bag is a part of my everyday life ... with the emphasis on life. God has given us a peace beyond understanding as my wife and I have traveled this journey. By the grace of God I am blessed to be a 6 plus year cancer survivor aka warrior. In writing, I am often wrestling with my own personal struggles and beliefs and in the midst God leads me to a lesson He wants me to learn ... or sometimes He simply touches me in the revelation of Himself. My hope is that the result you see here might touch your heart and glorify God. And let me be clear ... I am not the only one with something to say. Please join in the conversation sharing your faith, your cancer experiences, etc. I would love to hear from you. Bernie

    Bernie, thank you for sharing. What a beautiful way to start an afternoon. Loved the musical presentation of Chris Rice for “Come to Jesus” … Jim D.

    Bernie,
    This was so beautiful, and as Jim commented…what a lovely thing to experience this afternoon. Come to Jesus has been a favorite song of mine since Chris Rice recorded it. In fact, it is such a part of my testimony that I want its beautiful message to be imparted to friends and family who might attend my funeral when the Lord calls me home. I want them to know the joy that is mine can also be theirs.
    As always, another wonderful post!

    Thank you so much for sharing,

    Anne K.
