Ever feel like you’re out of control? Are you anxious? Worried? Sad? Stressed? Angry? Dr. Daniel Amen offers hope for you – hope through a four-pronged approach to health: biological, psychological, social, and spiritual. (p. xxi)
On January 1, 2011, Keith and I were observing the San Diego Kite Club flying kites on the beach. A stranger came up to me and asked, “Would you like to have this kite?” Almost six weeks after the Lord miraculously healed me of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. Another test of my faith.
Do I have the energy and strength to get this heavy thing in the air? Continue reading 8 Things I’ve Learned from God’s Healing
Ever feel like life is an uphill struggle with a multitude of barriers in your way? Are you suffering with a chronic illness or what you perceive as an impossible situation, and there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight?
You and your doctor have tried everything you can think of: special diets, exercise, physical therapy, drugs, experimental treatments, prayer, healing services, and anointing with oil.
You’ve cried out to God, “WHY?”
You’ve searched your heart for secret sin and found nothing. Your faith is real, and it’s strong.
Still, you are suffering. What do you do? Continue reading 5 Things You Can Do When the Healing Doesn’t Come
Six months after the Lord healed me, I climbed half-way up the Great Wall of China (only halfway because the bus was going to leave). I would not have been able to climb the steps without healing.

F.F. Bosworth’s Christ the Healer is truth for today. Keith and I read this book after the many times that I had been prayed for and anointed with oil for healing from fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. After Keith read this book, he told me that he was going to preach a sermon after the Lord healed me. That was two years before God miraculously healed me on November 21, 2010. In January, 2011, he did preach on God’s healing touch.
In the two-year interval from God’s promise to His healing, we pressed into the Lord, and He blessed us with His presence and comfort as He gently shared the Scriptures with us in a new way, removing the church traditions that we had learned about healing and spiritual gifts only being for the early church and not for today. We learned that God still heals today – through miracles, through physicians and modern medicine, and in His timing, whether in this life or in eternity.
We observe, we talk, and we remember. We remember what was done, what was said, and what happened.
How we choose to view our past informs our future. We can sit down and frown. We can talk about how life isn’t fair.
We can wonder, “Why is this happening?”
