Matt Chandler: 'I Really Do Believe the Lord Has Healed Me'

He plans to go back to talking about church, Scripture, and gospel next week.

"I really do believe the Lord has healed me and that this is going to be something that we look back on and smile on his grace and his mercy," Matt Chandler said in today's video blog post.

Chandler, lead pastor of The Village Church in Highland Village, Texas, was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor after a seizure last Thanksgiving. He has been vlogging during his treatment with generally upbeat reports, and describes his healing today somewhat casually.

"We've got a long road ahead of us, but all in all God has been unbelievably merciful in healing and in comfort, and in those ways," Chandler says at the end of today's video. "It would have been merciful if it had gone the other way, too, but this has been a big answer to prayer for our family and for a lot of you."

He says next Friday he'll go back to text blogging, talking about issues unrelated to his health and recovery: "Different things concerning the church, different things concerning the Scriptures, differing things concerning the gospel."
