Having a doctor say the “C” word about your body is terrifying. No question. “Cancer” and many other “disease” diagnoses drop a veil of fear and confusion over life…..suddenly the conversation in the room sounds like slow motion groaning and the patient becomes less a participant and more the object of discussion. It’s difficult for a patient to stop the mental video of his own dreams vaporizing long enough to catch an occasional word of the discussion. And all the while the patient’s heart beat is drumming in his or her throat. It is a time of sheer electric panic………….NOT a time to make treatment decisions…….BUT a perfect time to stop and have a heart to heart conversation with your loving Father–God. THE Great Physician.
Patients who find themselves facing treatment decisions often rush to schedule surgery……”let’s get this thing cut out and pray they get it all”…..or “let’s burn it out with radiation and pray it doesn’t damage too much other tissue”……..or, “get that chemotherapy started because I don’t want this tumor to get any bigger or spread”…..and pray the chemo doesn’t kill me. The mindset is “time is of the essence”.
Usually the order of action is…first, make all the physical decisions and then go beg God to make those decisions work. Petitioning the Lord AFTER making important decisions rather than first going to Him and laying your situation at His feet seeking His guidance about your decisions is getting it backwards.
This blog includes a great deal of information about choices and decisions pertinent for preventing and overcoming “disease”–especially cancer. There are many resources and, most important, great reference to God’s Word and its healing power.
This particular post adds one of the most important resources I’ve ever discovered…..it came to me from a new friend about whom, every time I speak to her on the phone (we’ve never met face to face), I think “this has to be one of the gentlest souls on the earth”. This friend, Carrie, operates Doves Landing Farm in Kentucky and provides me and many others with wonderful fresh clean produce and hand crafted soaps. Visit her website www.doveslandingfarm.com and at least order some of her wonderful soaps (that are sans toxins of course). Carrie visited my blog and shared a resource I hadn’t known about; however, it is, perhaps, the most important one to date.
Keep in mind Hosea 4:6 “My people perish for lack of knowledge”. Rushing to pray for a “miracle healing” or get your name on “prayer lists” AFTER making medical decisions demonstrates that “lack of knowledge”.
I find this new resource agrees with some of my most recent “research and study”. Medically and spiritually sound as well as deeply rooted in God’s Word, Henry W Wright’s book A More Excellent Way to Better Health is absolutely the most comprehensive and insightful book I’ve read and I’ve read dozens in my effort to bring blog readers information to evaporate that fog of fear the severe diagnoses evoke—-forcing decisions based on panic.
Henry W. Wright, a pastor of a church in Thomaston, Georgia, has sound credentials and an understanding that “God’s perfect will is not to heal you. God’s perfect will is that you do not get sick.” Health is the goal—perhaps returning to health after a dire diagnosis or perhaps holding on to health in a world assaulting it vehemently. Trial and error management of symptoms and the “side effects” of those trials do not have health as the goal…ever.
This book is comprehensive and deals with spiritual roots of disease……something another truly anointed and insightful minister of healing, Katie Souza, whose ministry website is www.expectedendministries.com has discerned in a similar way to Wright. Katie has a miracle personal witness and is highly anointed with insights only gained passing through “the refiner’s fire”. She also does conferences but the downloads available on her website are instant help. I highly recommend “Sons of Light” and “The Glory Light of Jesus Heals your Soul” for your first downloads.
Both of these ministers are faithful to God’s Word in their teaching. Both are passionate in their mission to build God’s Kingdom populated with God’s children claiming their inheritance won by Christ and living in physical, emotional/mental, and spiritual health as opposed to struggling against evil powers and disease…….Both of these ministers have been blessed with insights rooted in scripture about the blocks to healing that must be dealt with before physical healing can occur. This point is critical. I know it from personal experience….these two ministers teach something I know that I know that I know is critical for healing.
Henry W. Wright’s book is not his ownly resource. He leads a ministry that holds conferences both in Thomaston, Georgia and other locations worldwide. His website is: www.beinhealth.com.
If you or a loved one are experiencing ANY disease; symptoms that haven’t been diagnosed as a disease; allergies; or an occasional ache or pain……you will benefit from visiting www.beinhealth.com and www.expectedendministries.com. You will understand health…..additionally you will understand a lot more than those who “chase miracles” hoping against hope.
Seek the healer rather than healing! You will be blessed with health.
