We have sung the age-old song, “Jesus Loves Me”, countless times. Yet, how many of us really know and understand in our heart the reality of the words so that we can say without a doubt, Jesus Loves Me?
His love for us is endless and totally unconditional. Jesus died on the cross and took away ALL of our sins and ALL of our sickness, and I know this is true because He healed me when the world said there was no cure. In 2011 I had undergone major surgery for cancer only to learn afterwards that the cancer the doctors thought was gone had actually spread to my lymph nodes. Being read the death sentence was truly the most horrifying experience that I had ever endured, and I was shocked and devastated beyond words, to say the least.
Luke 1:37 says that nothing is impossible to God, and I knew this was true but my mind became a battleground and it was hard to concentrate on the Words. Romans 8:11 flooded my thoughts day and night with renewed encouragement, but the words of the medical doctors pierced my thoughts and covered me with icy chills. It was a battle that was enforced with fear but that was won through faith.
I turned to prayer warriors and asked them to stand in the gap for me so that my faith could be made strong. During my constant prayers to the Lord, He gave me answers to all my questions, to all my fears, and I wrote them down so that I could read them over and over. My faith was strengthened daily and I was able to stand and face the battle and know that Jesus had already won it for me. And now, a year later, I am cancer-free and healthy! Praise God!
But I don’t want to keep the blessing to myself. I wrote all the inspiring messages into a book to share with you and with everyone who wants to make their faith strong so they can believe God to heal their bodies.
We walk by faith and not by sight, and the words of the Lord, according to Colossians 3:16, must be alive in us all the time in order for our faith to stay strong. But when we face adversities in our lives, the fear of what’s coming against us can steal the hope and belief we have in our hearts. So we must never stand alone. We must always pray and support each other so that our faith stays strong. This is the love of God in us that makes us Christians.
Where two or more are gathered in prayer, the Lord is in the middle of them. This book is filled with the love and inspiration of God. It is my prayer that it will be an encouragement to every person who reads it, and that they will be blessed and their faith will be made strong by the Lord so that they, too, can receive the victory over their problems.
Let Faith Arise! will be released in the first week of September, 2012 and I pray that it will be a blessing to people everywhere, especially to those whom the doctors have said there is no hope because they have cancer. Jesus IS our hope and He inspired me to write this book to share that hope with you.
“But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.” … Romans 8:11
