People coming to my blog site for the first time may wonder why I am telling stories about my family, food, garden, my holidays, birds, scenery, and not All about cancer. I looked at my list of topics I write about and cancer isn’t even in the top ten.
I thank God that he is faithful to help me as I have faith that he exists. I do not have cancer in my body. He is a living God who answers my prayers. The power of the death grip that cancer had on my body has been broken by the power of the blood of Jesus. Jesus died 2000 years ago but his sacrifice is effective today to heal me. Jesus, when he was on earth healed ALL who came to him for healing, no matter what their condition.
There is no other person or spirit that can claim to heal or deliver and give abundant life. Other spirits can heal but give you some other curse. There is no other God that can forgive, love, bless, heal and deliver and give a new start in life and do all this for free. Many people seek other remedies or therapies for healing of mind and body. They will be out a lot of money, like the woman who came to Jesus. She had spent all her resources to get healed to no avail. One touch of Jesus garment brought her complete healing from an issue of blood for twelve years.
I now tell stories about how my life is being restored. I am not just healed of cancer, I have new life experiences happening all around me. My eyes are opened to see all the life around me, in my garden, in nature, in new grandchildren and in restored relationships. If I was in the grave I could not write or tell of the wonderful things that are happening to me. The grave cannot praise God. I am alive to give thanksgiving and glory to God. I now live for God. The old Angela is dead but my new life is hid with Christ in God. I no longer live but Christ lives in me.
English was not my favourite subject at school. I had no desire to read books. I know others who love books and can’t get enough time to read them. My husband and I wrote a book about being healed from Cancer, Staying Alive. Brendan has been writing for many years. My book was the fourth book he has published. I have learnt much from his wisdom. I gleen from his hard earned experience.
I am surprising myself when I write a blog on the internet that is going out to the nations. Psalm 71 says,
I will tell everyone about your righteousness. All day long I will proclaim your saving power, though I am not skilled with words. (Psalms 71:15 NLT)
The Word of God gives us a wonderful promise. Jesus came to give us life and life abundantly. He says,
The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life. (John 10:10 NLT).
The work of the devil is to steal, kill and destroy in people’s life. He comes to steal our health through sickness and tragedy. He is the thief Jesus speaks about. Jesus defeated Satan when He shed his Blood on the Cross.
Jesus promise is true for me. I am living a rich and satisfying life. I do not have much money. But who could pay a mother pheasant and her five chicks to walk across my lawn? Can I pay for the sun to rise every day and give me light and warmth? Can I pay for forgiveness of my sins and healing for my disease? Can I pay for my son to catch fish for supper? Do I pay for the produce that grows in my garden?
When I believe in God the Creator, and his son Jesus he gives me so much in return. As I have faith in God he is faithful to help me when I need him. He promises to be with me in trouble and deliver me out of it. He will not forsake me now when I have grey hair. I can highly recommend you my reader, no matter what age you are, to have faith in God Almighty, creator of the heaven and the earth.
O God, you have taught me from my earliest childhood, and I constantly tell others about the wonderful things you do. Now that I am old and grey, do not abandon me, O God. Let me proclaim your power to this new generation, your mighty miracles to all who come after me. (Psalms 71:17-18 NLT)
Young people may wonder “What is the point in my believing in God and obeying his commands? I am young, healthy, strong, I have money, a good job, everything looks rosy.” The prodigal son went off to see the world. After many years when things didn’t work out he needed help. I was like that. I turned to God for help in my distress when I was twenty eight. I tried to follow his ways since then. When I was nearing death God was faithful to help me. So the years of following God have not been in vain. It is true God has not abandoned me now I am old and grey.
I am alive to enjoy the goodness of God in the land of the living. Bring on the coffee and cake!
