Against All Odds


This has truly been an interesting life. For those of you who do not fully know me, I , like many of you have suffered many ups and downs in my life. Truthfully, probably more downs than ups from almost being killed a few times as a child, to dying once (Yes with out of body experience - which I cannot elaborate on right now but I will do so in the future), to being sick with 2 brain tumors on two separate occasions as well as many other sicknesses (of which there were too many to count) all of which I was miraculously and instantaneously healed. Now, you may be thinking "Who are you? That you should be healed like this every single time?" And my answer to you is, "I am absolutely no one. I am simply a person that has been through a multitude of terrible things from miscarriages and substance abuse to sickness and death. And I have been loved and forgiven of it all before I even knew what Love really was -or should I say, who Love really is. Love is not just a mushy gushy feeling we get when we meet someone for the first time. No, that's not love. Love is eternal, Love is Jesus Christ. Love is dying for us and taking what was supposed to be our punishment so that we might live and not die, nor endure such punishment. And in quoting Charles Dickens -who actually took a quote from the bible, "Greater love has no man than this, that He lay down his life for his friend." And with this said all I need to say is “For this reason I tell you, her sins, which are many, have been forgiven—for she loved much. But the one who is forgiven little, loves little.”‭‭Luke‬ ‭7:47‬ ‭TLV‬‬. And with this Love, it has grown a sincere passion within me to put my faith fully and whole heartedly in the one who created both you and I. And except for a diagnosis (which is according to the laws of Moses) not to put my faith nor my trust in any man to heal me. “And in the thirty-ninth year of his reign, Asa became diseased in his feet, and his malady was severe; yet in his disease he did not seek the LORD, but the physicians. So Asa rested with his fathers; he died in the forty-first year of his reign.”‭‭II Chronicles‬ ‭16:12-13‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

You know?... I know for a fact that the Lord showed me 6 years ago that there will be a time when doctors would not be readily available, especially here in the U.S. And unfortunately I see this becoming the case now more so than ever with these new healthcare laws in effect. What used to be maybe an hour or two wait in the Emergency room is now a 10-12 hours minimum wait. And what used to be a one month wait to see a specialist is quickly becoming much, Much longer. And some people don't have that long to wait. So, my question to you is "Are you going to learn to trust the Lord now, or are you going to wait on the doctors and risk losing everything?" Seek the Lord while He is here. "I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears; surely I will heal you..”‭‭ says the Lord. II Kings‬ ‭20:5‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
