Here is the update on my mom. 10/19 My mom received her biopsy and was diagnosed with Cervical Cancer. On 10/20 I got word that my mom also has a tumor in the same region in her body. She goes in for her PET scan on Thursday 10/22 to see where from here. My mom isn't sure if she has to go through chemo yet, but my mom being a nurse, she said chemo will probably be the next step after the PETscan. My mom is in a lot of pain right now, she told me this morning after i had asked her how she was feeling. She replied, "I feel like I'm giving constant birth." I'm not a nurse but that doe not sound comfortable at all. So please just keep praying, fighting and waring in the spirit.
"Though we walk in the flesh we do not war in the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal. But MIGHTY IN GOD FOR DOWN STRONGHOLDS." - 2Timothy 2:4
This was a cool story. I came home from work yesterday and as I arrived at the house, I realized I didn't have my key. It got lost the previous week, so I was hoping Josh's Dad would let me in. But he was definitely sleeping in his room. So, I figured that I will just go in the backyard sit down and read my leadership book "Top 10 qualities of a Great Leader" - Phil Pringle.
By the way, if you are looking for a great book get Top 10 Qualities of a great leader. Everything rises and falls on Leadership, we need more leaders in this world and especially in our churches. We need Great, Strong mighty men of God leading our churches. the enemy will attack the Leadership first before he attacks the Body.
Anyways, I started reading that book in hopes of Josh getting home from work soon. As I Began to read it, in one of the chapters it had the above verse 2Tim. 2:4. For some reason I kept stopping on that verse and reading it over and over again. So I felt like I needed to memorize it, which if you know me I don't like memorizing things because I have really bad short term memory! ha So I memorized that verse and all the sudden I just felt a power stir up inside of me. This whole Cancer thing is a plan of the enemy to kill, steal and destroy God's people. There is a battle going on that w cannot see with the Human eye. It's called the Spiritual Realm, and there is a constant Battle going on that we as Believers need to take ownership and Help fight. But our weapons of our warfare are not one of carnal flesh but in God. 1) The word of God 2) Prayer 3) The Holy Spirt. We need to take all these into consideration when we go into this war. I have that verse stuck in my head, it keeps me reminding myself to keep fighting.
About 20 minuted Later Josh arrived home from work, so i met him at the front door. As i began to think about my mom and every thing that was going on, God really stated to do something in me. All of the sudden I began to get this overwhelming outward expression of excitement, joy and Peace. it all started inside of me and just came out all of the sudden! The weird part was i was not in control of it at all, i even tried stopping it! But God was doing something inside of me. God had naturally grace me with a lot of Faith in my life, but as this supernatural move of God start happening to me. I began to see my faith Grow into a supernatural faith that was unstoppable. I went in my room and i was jumping around and laughing, it was so crazy! If someone were to see me at that very second they probably would have thought i was crazy anyways. I just felt the peace of God all over me, and him tell me, it's all under my control. Do not worry about a thing."
After that i knew i had to go see my mom. Knowing that I don't have a car at the moment I called my sister and she came and picked me up. Right when I arrived at my parents, I went into my mom's rooms where she was laying down. I got on her bed and laid next to her, looked her in the eye and told what happened earlier, how God has gave me so much joy and peace about her. Then I paused and told her, "You don't have to Worry. God is going to heal you."
- Faith Doesn't make things Easy But it makes things Possible
Doing my daily bible reading i came across this scripture.
Romans 5:3-5, "3 And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; 4 and perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us."
