David Burge Updates

David Burge updates his journey with leukemia

Visit to the Consultant

with one comment

The consultant is working hard to tailor the chemotherapy to Dave. He made some changes last week and again this week. It is a delicate balance to maintain Dave’s quality of life and still keep the leukemia at bay. At present he is succeeding well. Dave takes a number of tablets, some are chemotherapy, others are to control symptoms. The breathlessness was caused by low haemoglobin (no sign of problems in Dave’s lungs), so Dave is going back to the Day Stay tomorrow to get some blood products. We will see the consultant again next week.

If we think too much about what may be ahead, it can threaten to overwhelm us, so we  focus on today. “Do the next thing”.

Matthew 6:34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

I don’t think Jesus is saying that we should not make plans for the future. We do make plans. For we are taught in Psalm 90:12 Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.

We talk about decisions that will need to be made in the future. But we try not to dwelt on what if, what if…

  1. Great to have the update & even greater to read about the way you are living in the light of the situation. I have always had a slogan “I am a now person” this came about from the saying of Jesus: “today if you hear my voice harden not your heart” and “Now is the accepted time” as you well know it is the Jewish evangelism I have in mind. The tomorrow thing takes away any challenge to share Messiah Jesus today. The verses you mention above are also so relevant to us seeking to live the Christian life but not easy to put into practice.
    But you have the right idea in not worrying about tomorrow. May you really know His wonderful presence & comfort at this time.
    Much love in Y’shua
