17 Apr The Power of Faith and Prayer
Faith- the confidence in what we hope for and assurance of what we do not see. Hebrews 11:1
It was a week before Christmas (2014), when I first heard the news that my brother was diagnosed with Stage 4 Stomach Cancer (rare and “incurable”). As you can imagine, this revelation was devastating and worst off all, completely out of left field. “How could my healthy, 33- year old, firefighter brother have this horrible disease?” I simply couldn’t believe it. To be honest, I just didn’t want to believe it. It had to be a mistake. He was too young and had too much to live for, a two-year old son and wife that needed him. But the truth was, cancer didn’t discriminate. And despite this shattering news, we were not going to let it bring us down. We were going to put our faith in our almighty God, who is capable of doing the “impossible”.
Today I am so blessed to share that the doctor confirmed what we already knew. After having a PET Scan earlier this week, they found NO EVIDENCE of Cancer!!! Can you believe that?! I sure can! Our God is amazing, gracious, and always faithful. The power of faith and prayer is real! I’ve seen it in my life so many times before, and God continues to show us his unending love. So no matter what you may be going through, or how tough things get, Don’t give up! He answers our prayers.
Have a great weekend!
