A Taste of Friday with Shoshana Rhodes and One Lamb Redeemed

One Lamb Redeemed
by Shoshana Goldberg



About the Book:

Have you ever wondered why you were born, what life is all about, what your destiny might be or if you even have one? Are you facing a giant such as cancer or betrayal in your life and wonder if you will survive? Do you have a call of God on your life and don’t know how to get from where you are to where you need to be? Have you ever asked yourself “What if”? “What if I had done that instead of this?” “Do I really have a future and a hope?” Even if you’ve given up on yourself, God has not! This book might just hold some answers especially for YOU!

This is the story of my life- really my journey with a supernatural God who was never put off by my faults and failures. It might answer some of the burning questions you have in your own life, or it may simply point you in the direction of your own journey with God. Either way, it is my prayer that you, the reader, will learn to walk with the most loving, powerful being in the universe, Adonai, the Lord of hosts, and find hope for your future!

Chapter excerpt:


Cancer

Cancer. It’s an ominous word filled with dread and fear, lots of fear. I’d heard this word spoken in times past over others. I knew from reading nursing journals and text books that one’s survival depended on the stage of the cancer and the rate of growth of the tumor(s). I read that once a person was cancer-free for 5 years they were considered to be “cured”. I also read that many persons were official “cancer survivors”.

Personally, I didn’t know anyone who had survived cancer. It didn’t seem to matter if they were young or old, male or female, rich or poor. They had all died. My Dad made it 10 months. His 36 year old sister was dying from cancer. In the years to come my Mom, another uncle, my sister-in-law, and many friends would succumb to this horrible plague.

I also knew that the available treatments for cancer in 1988 were as bad as the disease leaving its victims weak, nauseated, and debilitated. Many people I had talked to were so sick from the side effects they simply lost the will to live. They just wanted it to be over with.

My own story began before the actual diagnosis. I like to get alone with God in January of each year to hear from Him about the upcoming year. Some friends of mine had a retreat center that was snowed in. It was a perfect place to “hibernate” for the week! I spent that week in fasting and prayer. The Lord said nothing about the upheaval that was about to descend upon me.

He talked about faith. I looked out the window to the beautiful view of the mountains where I was. There were pine trees, snow and a small building on the adjacent mountainside. Suddenly, fog began to move in. It covered the mountain like a thick blanket within a matter of minutes. Then the Lord began to talk to me. He said “Daughter, what do you see”? I replied “Nothing but fog”. Then He inquired “What is really there”? I answered “A mountainside with trees, snow, and a small building”. He then said to me in that still, small, gentle voice that I’d grown to love: “Faith is like that. What you see is fog, but there is so much more that is really there. When I ask you to believe for something, you can’t see it yet, but I know what is real- what’s really there. If you can simply agree with My reality, when the time is right, I will clear the fog. Many times My people believe there is nothing there, so they go on their way and miss what I have for them.”

I was having some “female symptoms.” Nothing significant--I’d had female symptoms before. I usually went to the MD, got a prescription, and no more symptoms! This time was different. I went to the doctor and he referred me to a specialist. That’s when I got the dreaded diagnosis. It was no longer something that happened to other people. It had happened to me.
