I don't often sit still.
It is hard to keep me down.
Logan can attest to this from the night I had 12 blood clots in my lungs and it took 7 shots of morphine for the hospital staff to be able to lay me down to get the MRI. (Logan said, "if we ever go into battle, I want her on my side.")
Recently, spending about an hour, several times a day,
in the bathroom performing a coffee enema, has caused me to "be still", "be quiet", and "relax".
Strange, I know.
But as a result of this "quiet time", God can easily capture my undivided attention. He has showed me visions and spoke to my heart in awesome ways,
where before I was never still long enough to hear.
There was such a day several months ago,where he gave me a dream that is bigger than I could ever imagine. It has to do with helping sick people, particularly those inflicted with cancer. But I had become discouraged about it and kind of put it on the back burner, due to most people's response to natural healing. But he has opened my eyes to dispel the discouragement and is giving me renewed vigor to go forward, even though in the flesh I have no idea how to or what to do to make this possible.
But He does.
As long as I am willing, He will provide, lead, and go forward with me.
I will share the dream with you soon. :)
If we are all honest with ourselves, we know in the back of our minds and in the deep crevices of our hearts that God knows the answers and He HAS given us what we need to heal.
But in a world where for the last 100 years we have been use to relying on the white coats, labs and pill bottles to help us, to have all the answers,
to give us all we need,
we have become dependent on the medical field.
Treating the whole medical society as if they were our god and caregiver. Replacing the One who can heal.
And actually becoming so resistant to anything outside that white coat world, that we tend to think anything natural is quackery,
we tend to think it doesn't really help.
I am not saying don't go to the doctor. We have just gone too far the other direction.
It took me a long time to give the natural way, a second look.
Why do we think God can handle it and is the one we need when we fall into a pit or are in total despair,
when we need to heal...welll, then "God healing" is just a nice story to tell.
God showed me why so many people won't try being healed by natural means.
And it broke my heart....
In reading Luke chapter 4, verses 20-30, Luke tells how during the time of Elijah there were many widow women who needed help and healing during the famine. But only one had the heart to BELIEVE, and through that belief Elijah was able to do a great work. And in the time of Elisha, there were many with Leprosy. But only one had the heart to believe for his healing...Naaman. And he was healed.
People are not believing in the fullness of their heart!
YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE.
You have to BELIEVE He can and will heal you.
Not I believe, BUT....
I have believed in my healing from the beginning.
I refused to entertain anything else.
The doctors never gave me any kind of hope of anything working against my 9 tumors.
But I believed God would answer my prayer and heal me, I believed he could.
AND I had faith in intercessory prayer. The prayers of so many people all over the world, praying for me. In the Bible God never refused an intercessory prayer where people truly believed and did not doubt.
BE PERSISTENT in your prayers.
So He showed me people are not truly believing He could heal them or would. They are not believing in the natural things he has given us to heal. Some are not relying on him at all.
Satan is blinding people's eyes, because he wants us to remain sick, he wants us to not rely on God. People don't have the faith to believe because not only are their physical eyes but also their spiritual eyes and eyes of their heart, have been blinded, and he weighs us down with stress, more disease and sickness.
I have been through it!
I hate it that anyone else ever, has to go through it.
This revelation broke my heart ....then..
it made me mad.
I am vowing to go into prayer battle for cancer victims.
Max Lucado, my pastor, just preached on intercessory prayer on May 5. (You can watch this sermon live at www.oakhillschurch.com under media and the date May 5, 2013.) That sermon had me thinking about intercessors and how important and effective it is to pray for others. I am living proof of the positive results of intercessory prayers as many of you have been praying devotedly for me for the past 16 months.
I believe God is sending me into battle against this disease.
I am asking all you wonderful prayer warriors, to add to your prayer list, below my name, all those you know and don't know with cancer, to pray for their healing and their eyes to be opened. And I would ask you please pray protection around my self and my family.
This IS a spiritual battle.
I am going to keep pressing on, telling people, until the wall is broke down.
Please pray continually. We are all a part of this.
