“The condition for a miracle is difficulty, however the condition for a great miracle is not difficulty, but impossibility.” – Faith Like Potatoes (the movie)
It has been a bit since I posted. Not much to report, except for that we continue to believe for mom’s entire and complete miraculous healing. She looks good, and although she gets more tired than she used to before this all came to be, she is still doing a LOT and staying pretty busy. In fact, I think her & dad are out right now running errands. Her hair is REALLY filling back in, much to her delight 🙂
Our friend Karen Ellertson sent my mom some CDs to listen to in which Bill Johnson, the pastor of Bethel Church in Redding, CA talks about healing. Boy, are they awesome at building all of our faith!! I have listened to 2 so far, and there are several more. He addresses something that has bothered me for a long time – why do so many Christians nowadays just assume that healing is not for today? The Bible says clearly that He is the same yesterday, today and forever. So if he was healing back in Bible days, why shouldn’t we expect the exact same thing now?
It’s like the quote from the movie I recently saw, Faith Like Potatoes. The circumstances for a GREAT miracle is IMPOSSIBILITY. This is our current circumstance. But oh how glorious it will be to see this impossible circumstance OVERCOME by the blood of Jesus!
We need to have faith like Job. Here he was in the worst situation possible, dealing with deaths of family members, financial ruin, and illness, and he still said, “Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him.” Job 13:15 In the most impossible of situations, our eyes need to be fixed on HIM.
Thanks so much for your prayers for my mom’s healing. We are so blessed by all the cards, letters, and encouraging notes from all of you.
