Attention Shoppers: God is at Cash Register #10

I saw the video below last week and I’ve been thinking about it ever since. It stirs so much in me... memories of when I first awakened to the fact that God is still in the miracle business but more important, it stirs my faith.

I found out yesterday that a dear friend, who happens to be my age, was just diagnosed with a brain tumor. She fell on Tuesday and hit her head – a severe enough injury to send her to the emergency room. That started the round of tests that revealed the mass in her brain. Reminiscent of precious Andrew who is waiting for his miracle. Last week, I heard of another cancer diagnosis in a beautiful 26-year-old young lady.

Last night, as I prayed for these needs, two things came to mind. Almost 25 years ago, I was on a prayer chain at our small Methodist church and got a call to pray for a teen who had been critically injured when she was thrown head-first through the windshield in a terrible car accident. I awakened all through the night after that call with a severe headache and would pray for her (her name was Kelly), the headache would go away and I would go back to sleep for awhile. Then the cycle would repeat.

The next morning, I felt absolutely compelled to go to the hospital and tell the parents Kelly was going to be okay. I had no clue what I was doing – this was a totally unfamiliar experience to me. But I couldn’t shake the feeling, so off I went. I found her parents in the waiting room for neurological intensive care and delivered the message. Two days later, when I got the call that Kelly had awakened from her coma with no brain damage, my life was forever changed.

I’ll tell you more about that journey later. For now, I am full of faith for these three friends in particular, to be wholly restored. I declare a cancer-free zone. It can happen anywhere and anytime….even on cash register #10.

Yay,God indeed!
This is what I want in my life...more of THIS!! More of that boldness, more of that flat out faith! I cried the whole way through...this was for me...this was for me! Thank you.

I agree with your cancer-free zone, in the Name of Jesus!

P.S.
I am blogging again and...we're back in Bradenton. Perhaps we'll get the chance to get together sometime when you are here.

I needed this too. One of my husband's good friends at work was diagnosed with a brain tumor on the day Edward Kennedy died. He has the same type of tumor that Kennedy had. We know his friend doesn't have long, and we also know that his friend has turned his back on God, considering himself an agnostic. We're praying for mercy in this man's life and just a sliver of understanding. It's hard. Really hard.

Yes! We are believing that God has already stopped the tumor cells from growing and even now that the diagnosis is being reversed ~ cancer free in Jesus' Name! Amen and Amen.
Nothing is impossible to those who believe and take God at his Word. The Word of faith is nigh me, even in my mouth.
Thank you, Beverly and Builderman, for standing in faith believing that God heals today and that it IS His will.
Love,
Melanie
