His Healing Power

On July 25th, 2022, I posted the story of Peppi’s miraculous healing of cancer. This stage 4 cancer was his third round and it was in his brain, face, neck, shoulders and was going into his bones, but not anymore! To date, 4 CT scans and a PET scan are proof that God has given him a new life.

There is no longer cancer anywhere in his body!

Glory to God!!!

You may read about it in the post “Nothing is too Complicated for God.” At that time I had said that there were two others that I would write about at a later time. I had intended to, much sooner, but I have been totally focused on getting my next book finished. I am very happy to announce that the book is now written and edits are complete. It is now ready for the cover designer and then a sample will be ordered for approval. Almost there! I expect it to be out in early to mid December.

Patty has given me permission to share the goodness of God and of His unsurpassed Healing Power in her life with you.

I was shocked the day I heard that Patty had breast cancer again, for she was a survivor from many years ago. Eighteen years, she tells me. Who would have thought, after all that time, that she would be facing that vile disease once again. I am so proud of Patty, because she was prepared and she faced this giant with her hand firmly tucked in Jesus.’ Though she chose to do chemo, her faith was in God to see her through.

There was a time when that would have bothered me, as if giving a mixed message. Wavering, so to speak, but Keith Moore, of Moore Life Ministries said something one time that set me free. He said, “You don’t deny it’s there, you deny its right to stay.” “You use every tool you’ve been given.” That so helped me to see sickness and disease in perspective. Jesus took sickness and disease upon Himself that you not have to have it. Therefore you are healed. When you put your trust in Jesus, and receive what He did for you on the Cross, you are no longer a victim. You are victorious in Christ Jesus!

You are the healed–sickness and disease the trespasser!

You have God-given rights to demand it to leave!

“He personally carried our sins in His body on the cross [willingly offering Himself on it, as on an altar of sacrifice], so that we might die to sin [becoming immune from the penalty and power of sin] and live for righteousness; for by His wounds you [who believe] have been healed.” 1Peter 2:24 AMPB

So, each one of us must look into our tool belts to see how, and with what we must fight, when faced with the tough decisions in life. That is not the time to find you have an empty tool belt; for you can be taken under while you are out gathering what you need. If you are a Christian, you have been given everything you need to live victorious in this life. It is all written there for you in the Word, the Holy Bible. It is filled with promises and tools that are yours to keep, know and to wield, when the enemy would try his best to take you down; but it is up to you to dig them out, sharpen what you have and be prepared. Don’t wait until you need them. Find them, sharpen them every day, make use of them and be ready!

So, Patty asked for her Church to lay hands on her and pray. When her doctor spoke the c word to her–she took it immediately to God. During this prayer, she felt the Fire-of-God Anointing shoot through her breast and it is with this physical manifestation and the assurance of the Word, that she knew it was going to be alright.

This was her belief and confession and she stuck to it!

Halfway through treatments her platelets dropped dangerously low. A drug they were giving her, seemed to be attacking her adrenal and pituitary glands and she became very dizzy and was passing out. In this weakened state, she was hospitalized and was found to have Covid. They kept her there until the Covid was over its course. Sending her home, a steroid she had been on was greatly reduced, and after just a couple of days she became too weak to lift her head. An ambulance was called and thankfully they were there, for her heart stopped and they brought her back to life. She died again in the hospital, and was brought back to life and now suffered with three broken ribs from coding.

When Patty was finally able to be home and become strong enough to return to her doctor, he ran a PET (positron emission tomography) scan to determine how far the cancer had spread. It had been a month with no chemo at all and the last they had looked it was still in her breast; and had spread to the lymph nodes in her arm pit.

This scan however was different, for it showed that there was no longer any cancer anywhere!

Glory to God!!!

Patty is doing well and getting stronger every day. She still has some issues, caused from the drugs that she was given, but no cancer. There are side effects to medicine, but each must make their own decisions of the path they will take when faced with sickness and disease.

Be a support, not a condemning voice.

The other person is someone also very near and dear to me, but I forgot to ask specifically if I may say who she is, so I will leave it anonymous.

This person had cancer in the lower intestine/upper colon area and chose to have surgery. Her situation is a mystery because, post surgery, her surgeon visited her in her hospital room and gave her ‘the talk.’ He told her they got 50% of the cancer and that it was in the lymph nodes. They talked about the fact that she didn’t want to go the chemo route and he concluded that the cancer would then just take its course. Many people had been in prayer for her, as were for Patty. The next time she saw the surgeon, she asked him what she was to expect, as far as pain, and if it would likely go into her bones etc. His reply was puzzling, but great news . . .

“You don’t have any cancer, go and live your life!”

Glory to God!!!

We’re still not exactly sure what happened, but conclude all good things come from Him! Three different people took three entirely different paths, but all three put their trust in Him and all three are cancer free!

Again I shout–

Glory to God!

“Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, And He saved them from their distresses. He sent His word and healed them, And rescued them from their destruction. Let them give thanks to the Lord for His lovingkindness, And for His wonderful acts to the children of men! And let them offer the sacrifices of thanksgiving, And speak of His deeds with shouts of joy!” Psalm 107:19-22 AMPB

You may read about Peppi’s full transformation testimony in my new book about to go to print. Peppi is a former prisoner, and it is an amazing testimony of God’s loving redemption. God stopped my writing, for He had Peppi on His heart, and He wanted him to be in this book! I had never met and had not even seen Peppi before, but God spoke to me to take my books to a coffee shop. He said He had someone He wanted me to give them to. Peppi’s, is the final testimony in the “His Voice in My Heart” series; a message appropriately titled, “Peppi’s New Life.”

All Glory Be to God, Amen!

Nothing is too Complicated for God

In my last post, “Nothing is too Insignificant for God,” I wrote about the seemingly insignificant things that are important to God, because they matter to us. The testimony in that post declares His unending love for us. Even that which would seem foolish to others matters to Him, if it matters to you.

You can trust Him with your heart!

Likewise there is no concern that you may have, that is too big for God to answer. From the tiniest need to the biggest fear and concern–He is there!

The following testimonies are, joyous, living proof of the goodness of God! They each received terrible news from their doctor. Each took a slightly different path, but each put their faith and trust in their Heavenly Father and the Healing power of Jesus Christ. I will write of just one testimony today, the other two will follow another day.

You can trust Him with your Body!

Please allow me to introduce you to Peppi. It is with his permission that I write his testimony and use his real name.

I was writing the third book in the “His Voice in My Heart” series last June, when the Lord stopped my writing. I blogged about it then, but at that time had not yet known the full purpose in His stopping me. At the time, I had been working toward a goal of publishing by Christmas of that year, 2021; when He spoke to me and said, “So, why don’t you think more toward spring.” “Ok, sure.” was my reply. I had thought He was just wanting me to slow my pace, and not work so hard. I was really enjoying the writing though, so I slowed down but kept dabbling at it. He then pulled the anointing. It was like trying to write in the dark without Him. No, not happening! What I didn’t know at that time was that He had someone that He was soon going to introduce me to and it would forever change this person’s life. His testimony has become a crowning Glory to the Lord, completing the book series, “His Voice in My Heart.” It declares the Lord’s Love, Compassion and Healing Power to all who will receive!

Glory to God!

I won’t go into the whole testimony here, you may read it when the book comes out. I won’t venture to say for sure, but again my hope is in time for Christmas; but I’ll just leave that up to the Lord!

Knowing that there will be many that don’t venture to read a book, I will tell you much of what happened. Spoiler alert for those of you that will read the book, but then it bears repeating . . . again and again and again!

One can never stop rejoicing in the goodness of our wonderful Savior!

So one day I was going to meet a friend for coffee and the Lord spoke to me and said, “Take your books with you; there is someone I want you to give them to.”

I obeyed without question, and went to meet my friend. She texted that she would be late, part of God’s plan I expect, and so I sat there looking around for the person He had in mind. My spirit had been drawn to a man that was sitting behind me but he had gotten up and left, so I looked around and finding no clues, asked the Lord, “So, who are they for?” Just then that same man came back in, and this time sat at a table to my right. “It’s him.” the Lord replied. and then, as if to make sure I didn’t miss it, He immediately repeated, “It’s him.”

I didn’t need courage, because the Lord was so clear, but asked the man if he liked to read. His responsive yes was all I needed. I jumped up and told him the Lord had asked me to bring him my books and then told him, “They are written for prisoners but please don’t take that personal, because they are for anyone.” “We all have things in our life we’re working on.” I said.

“No,” he replied. “I am one.” “Well, I’m out now, but I’ve been in prison in Chicago for years.”

He then seemed to want to talk, and told me of his life in prison. He spoke of cancer, an aneurysm, stroke and seizures in prison that he had overcome, without the help of the prison system. Then he proceeded to tell me that he now had cancer for the third time. When he said that, faith came out of me like a roar and I said, “Oh, NO, that’s got to go!” “Can I pray for you?” I took his hands and commanded that cancer to leave his body, in Jesus Name.

He received his healing right then and there, but it was January 21st that he texted me and said the doctor could hardly see any cancer on the scan. March 3rd, the doctor couldn’t see any cancer, and this past week it was confirmed with a pet scan. There is no cancer anywhere in his body!

Glory to God!!!

I found out later why the Lord had cut me off and I didn’t wait to hear where he had the cancer, but prayed. I may have been daunted by the report for he had cancer in his brain, face, neck, shoulders and it had started in his bones. I learned that day that the Lord is not daunted by any report!

It was his 3rd round of cancer and stage 4 but that’s not too big for God!

God is the healer, I am not. I was there to connect with him to God. Sometimes we need someone with us to bolster our faith and believe with us.
I explained to him that day that many don’t receive their healing because they don’t believe it until they see it. They keep praying and asking but never “receive” it. Some healings come instantly, but others take time. Faith is the “substance” of things “hoped” for and the “evidence” of things “not” seen.

I told Peppi, that he is healed right now!  “Expect to see it, but not be concerned about when.” “Praise and thank God daily for your healing.” “Write healing scriptures on sticky notes and put them where you will see them though-out the day.” “Read them out loud to get them in your ears and down into your heart.” I encouraged. “I’ll do it!” he replied with conviction and a sharp nod of his head.

He wasn’t disappointed!

I rejoice with you, Peppi, and thank you for allowing me to pray with you and for being a shining star to complete my book. You represent all that I write for and I hope that others will take courage from your testimony to trust the Lord with their heart, body and life.

I want every reader to know that no matter what you’re going through, no matter where you”ve been, you’re important to God!

Reader, He knows right where you are, and you are not alone–simply reach out to Him.

Peppi had met the Lord while in prison and was out now and studying to become a prison minister. He told me later that he had planned to go into the prison systems to minister when, suddenly, Covid hit. “Lord, how am I going to get into the prisons now?” he prayed. The Lord answered his prayer bigger than Peppi could imagine. He answered this dying man by healing his body, giving him a testimony of victory to share and now, with God’s help, Peppi’s testimony will be going into prisons all over the country via the next “His Voice in My Heart” book.

If the Lord hadn’t stopped me from finishing that book, June 6th, 2021, it would have already been to the publisher for editing by the time I met Peppi.

I had never met or even seen Peppi before. God introduced us, because He has a plan for Peppi’s life. He not only knows Peppi, but he knew he would be at the coffee shop that day, arranged to have my friend delayed, and sent me to pray with him. Peppi was not forgotten. He may have messed up in life, but God will use his testimony for His Glory!

You are not forgotten either . . . you have a future waiting to unfold.

God’s timing is perfect–listen to Him–He knows just what you need!

Peppi told me later that prior to all this he had been discouraged and had thought about going back to Chicago. He had trouble finding a place to live because no one wanted to rent to him, given his record. His sister, Lois, told him, “Peppi, if you come back to Chicago you will miss your blessing!”

Lois was right! Soon after, someone did take a chance and offered Peppi an apartment, 5 minutes away from his church. That was the stipulation Peppi had put in his prayer and God answered that prayer!

Peppi, you’re on your way–Your future is bright!

Thank you, God, for allowing me to be a part of his story.

I pray for God’s Blessing to be upon you, Peppi, all the days of your life and I know that God has already answered my prayer!

All Glory Be to God!

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3:5

Will 2016 Be the Best Year of Your Life?

If you are a regular reader, then you know by now that nearly all of this blog consists of messages that the the Lord speaks to my heart. It is my desire to be present only as a servant, bringing forth to share with you what I believe that He has laid on my heart. I look up scriptures to verify the messages and take delight in the ministry He has called me to.

A few times I have written randomly, from my own heart’s thought, not announcing it as such, for I am certain that you can tell the obvious difference. Last New Years was one of those times and recently as I was looking over some of the past messages I was shocked to read again what I had said. “Hello 2015, I cannot wait to see what you will bring.” I remember the excitement of anticipation for the new year; not a clue that in just five months my husband would be dead.

I am still stunned.

We don’t always know or even have a clue what our life will bring. So busy with today, we often forget just how fleeting and precious this life is. Are you prepared for this year, even if it may be your last? My husband didn’t have time or the mind to change. When we learned of his brain cancer we had four very short and intense months. I gave everything I had in me, poured my life out for him, but it was not in my hands.

Are you ready?

Do you know Jesus?

For in the end, He is all that really matters. Your stuff doesn’t mean anything. You will never see it again or another paycheck in eternity. But you will see Jesus. You will see Him for an embrace or judgement–you choose.

If you don’t know Him, ask Him into your heart. Admit that you have messed up somewhere in your life, just like all the rest of us. We have all failed in one way or another and deep down we all want to do better.

But the fact is that in your own strength, flesh and willpower you can’t; none of us can–we need a Savior. We need Jesus. He exchanged His life for your failure. The price has already been paid and He waits for you to acknowledge it, believe, receive.

Will you ask Him today?

My husband didn’t have another year. He didn’t even have another 1/2 year and I will never forget the look on his face when we learned the terrible news. It is a terrible and painful loss to lose someone you love, but I am forever thankful that, prior to that terrible report, he had already heard the good news–he heard about Jesus. And he is with Him today–with Him for always.

So let’s make 2016 the best year of your life. Be ready, no matter what it brings. There are no guarantees what this year will be; but this is your key–if you receive Jesus–if you believe–you will be–for all eternity.

Ask and believe!

Happy 2016–let’s make it the best year of your life!

“Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and whoever lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?'” John 11:25-26

“-since all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, they are justified by grace as a gift, through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as an expiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God’s righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins; it was to prove at the present time that he himself is righteous and that he justifies him who has faith in Jesus.” Romans 3:23-26
