Walking by Faith!
Saludos Everyone! We hope you had a great Thanksgiving!
I am writing in lieu of Brandy because she has spent the last couple of weeks at University Hospital. Her daughter Diamond is in ICU. She is currently on life support, breathing with the help of a ventilator. Brandy and her family ask for your prayers.
Brandy and her family want to thank you all for your visits, support and prayers. It is working! Diamond is healing! Most of all – we thank Father God for the healing he has given Diamond and for complete healing and restoration. Thank you Father God for all of your blessings!
This leads me to this month’s topic: Walking by Faith! Sometimes it is difficult to walk by faith, mostly (continue reading…)
I am hoping that everyone has started off the New Year with a great start.
2010 was probably not a great year for a lot of us as we have all probably had to face some sort of trial or tribulation.
With that comes pain.
There are so many types of pain that one can encounter, and at times we our selves don’t realize what is causing it.
It can be an injury due to trauma? It can be a health issue? It can be anything you can possibly think of that creeps up with age? It can be physical? It can be mental? It can be real or psychosomatic.
But Pain is Pain – no matter what!
So where does pain come from and what causes it? It may come from someone you loved and shared you life with has passed on? It may come from someone you trusted has hurt you some how?
And right about now, You are probably wondering what does that have to do with “Hope and Healing.”
I have learned that even when you have gone through setbacks in your life, whether it be medical or emotional – it is associated with pain…
You may find that all this time the pain that you thought you were suffering with was health related, where in some cases it may be true, but in others it may just be something that you have been hurting from, that over the course of time, has brought pain to your heart.
Recently I was watching a The Dr. Carrasco Show, produced in San Antonio. The Doctor shared a story with us about one of his patients.
After a period of time in hoping to find a cure that would help his patient from going through depression and Anxiety and help free her from the thoughts of giving up.
The process for Hope and Healing began.
When finally, as you learn more about the patients history, you find that what was causing the deterioration traveling through her body was a much more greater pain that affected her heart.
In this case it was the abuse that this beautiful human being went through – not only once, but twice!
She was violated in such a terrible way that after years of treatment, she no longer wanted to live life.
All this time the pain that she was going through was the sadness and resentment she was having to deal with for some time.
Her doctor saw her as a family member the way a patient should be seen.
His belief and the love he has for Christ is the same love he has for his patients, and with that comes Hope and Healing.
She was given Hope in believing that the healing process had already begun.
Today his patient dances around the room like the Ballerina she has always been.
The point to this story is when we are in pain and feel there’s no way out always remember that God will put someone in your path who has hope for you and will help with the healing, and that is what he was able to help his patient with.
I want to share something very Important with you: Whatever you may be going through in life and the pain becomes persistent, always turn to God and ask for hope and healing. There may be a doctor or someone who may help.
But always remember it has to start with you who wants the hope of being healed.
And to those of you who may not always understand when the one you love is hurting with pain. Why do you suppose that is?
Ask God for hope and healing and feel the gentleness of each others HEART.
Remember to love one another and say those words that god says to you “I Love You!”
Blessings and Healing
