Let THE Word be Made Flesh--YOUR Flesh and Be Healed
Here is a beautiful YouTube Video of Healing Scriptures that I believe my readers will enjoy. I implore you to watch and absorb this Word. I believe you will be wholly blessed by this video.

Re-Post of Healing Scriptures:
I re-post these occasionally so they stay more readily available and readers don't have to search archived years. I'll try to do it more often. When the new blog is launched with the book, I'll try to get these always on home page somehow. That is just a few weeks away I think.
These audible healing scriptures are among the most visited and searched for posts on the blog. I did them myself and they aren't polished and professional but they are from the heart of one who has, herself, benefitted with great healing after saturating my body/mind with God's Word. His Word becomes flesh--mine and yours--when we listen and speak His promises.
Bless you as you listen. #1 is without music, #2 and #3 include background music.

I often have requests to pray for friends of friends who have received very recent cancer diagnoses and who are already into the first treatment option suggested to them. I continue to be astounded by how many people make quick decisions while overcome with fear and without even stepping back to consider a second opinion or other options. It is particularly difficult to pray effectively for someone who has made decisions based in fear rather than faith (which can NOT coexist). On the other hand, it is powerful to pray for someone who is following their faith rather than fear in their "battle plan".

A few nights ago I attended a small gathering of women from my little village church. It was a warm, loving group who treated me as though they had known me for years as they had each other.
I know that two of the women dealt with cancer in years past (one of them twice) and the conversation turned to begging their daughters to test for the "breast cancer gene". Another said, "I don't want to know about genes like that." The reality of "focus" and "fear" came to mind and I mentioned the science of epigenetics which shows us how we are not slaves to our DNA because diet, sleep, and environment impact our genes as life goes on. I was met with puzzled stares so I went no further. Again, I saw the enemy's lies glazing over the eyes and ears of good people and propagating the "victim mentality". I thought, "God, you gave me this book, but who's going to 'get it'?" I heard in my spirit, "I just told you to write it.......The 'getting it' part is not your job." The book I refer to is the one I just finished writing, Slam the Door on Cancer....and Lock It Out of Your Life, which is being edited for publish early 2014.
Following the potluck which consisted of one fresh salad (I brought and mostly ate), 5 rich casseroles, a selection of cake and pie as well as sodas laced with aspartame, we gathered around the tree to exchange "secret pal" gifts and sing carols.
The leader of the group, a highly anointed woman of God, seemed a bit weary and admitted it. She's recovering from foot surgery, but while leading prayer, she shared that "every person in her family was dealing with something that she couldn't help them with" and the holiday season was amplifying the difficulty.
Being new to the church, I was reluctant to interject a great deal, but, in my heart, I prayed that all of these women would read my book, Slam the Door on Cancer......and Lock It Out of Your Life, when it comes out (I hope Jan or Feb 2014). I have obediently shared, in this book, "downloads" from the Lord paralleling Scripture and science with fresh insights to bring encouragement and hope into just such "life stuff" as these precious women mentioned.
Our "leader" emphasized how especially tough it is to deal with adversity during the holidays. It so happens that my own worst bout with cancer was during Christmas a number of years ago. Of course I have enjoyed many bright, wonderful, and blessed Christmases since that very painful and difficult one. Yet, I look back on that one not with sorrow but with a tremendous sense of peace and joy because my focus was simplified in that situation.
I had surgeries in early December that year; was kept unconscious for days between surgeries; experienced severe systemic infection requiring isolation; and yet somehow met the minimum requirements for hospital discharge late on Christmas Eve. During my "induced coma", I "heard" Handel's "Messiah" sung exquisitely and it sustained me. During the post surgery recovery, my daughter actually saw my "angel of light" hovering by my ICU bed and was given peace. Once discharged, the 4 hour drive home in heavy rain was dark and difficult, yet wonderful because I was going home for Christmas. I was too physically weak to celebrate, but oh how wonderful to sleep in my own bed and hug my grandchildren. I was blessed at a visceral level.
I'm certain the pre-mature hospital discharge was due to doctors thinking this might be my last Christmas. They meant well, and it turned out well even though I was air lifted back to that hospital a week later after serious internal bleeding.
What I want to share now is HOPE! I no longer have routine scans looking for cancer; however, I do twice yearly blood tests including tumor markers. This week, after tests, my internist told me I was the healthiest person seen in his office. ALL my labs were absolutely perfect. My energy, appetite, sleep, joy, and peace are dead center of "perfect". This report was a nice Christmas blessing. I do not fear that cancer can return because I keep my body inhospitable to it as I explain in the coming book.
So, if you or a loved one are dealing with cancer this Christmas, you CAN look forward to future Christmases of "perfect peace and joy"..... and health. My story of overcoming pancreatic cancer is not special because it was pancreatic cancer. Nor is it special because of a "miraculous instantaneous event". The story is one of an interactive miracle in which God, who wants us all to be healed, led me in a divine "connect the dots" process of miraculous healing.
God, who IS love, wants you healed, period. Everything is in place for that healing. In this blog are many things I learned from the "dots" God and I co-labored to connect. Especially, check out the April 2013 posts and please watch for the book coming out early 2014. I also urge you to listen to the Healing Scripture audios available in posts under that label here in this blog. We will launch a second blog with the book and it will be www.slamthedooroncancer.com .
Look forward to the Christmases when cancer will be behind you forever! God does.
