Trials of Terror

You might have seen that I dared to post good news about the Good News of Jesus on Wednesday. I spent a few minutes extolling the Lord and some of the great things He has done in supernaturally healing me of incurable cancer. So, of course, the following day it looked like everything had changed… I went to my routine bi-annual appointment with Dr. Crooms, … Continue reading Trials of Terror

Heart of My Heart

The Lord is teaching me about my heart and Holy Spirit. The lesson is so deep, yet perfectly simple, and it touches me to the core. I’ve said many times that part of me has felt dead inside since my diagnosis. It’s not a depression, just something I wrestle with, and sometimes it’s helpful. In fact, Proverbs 4:23 says, “Above all else, guard your heart, … Continue reading Heart of My Heart

Keep on keeping on

Some traveling missionaries from a different religion just came by the house to “turn us” their way. Whenever that happens we offer the story of my supernatural healing as a testimony of our deep faith in the One True Son of God. And, whenever that happens, the missionaries smile, say a few nice words, then become awkwardly silent. Every time. People of all faiths have … Continue reading Keep on keeping on

More than a comforter

The Lord is our comforter. The prince of peace. He creates a tranquil calm in the midst of storms that transcends all our human understanding. Holy is He who casts out all fear and soothes our souls!  2 Cor 1:4, ” [He] who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the … Continue reading More than a comforter

A Prayerful Life

Well, the Lord is at work again! Just when I think He’s doing something different, He brings me back into this prayerful lifestyle. He has revolutionized my prayers and is working quickly. I’ll be praying and hear my voice pray for a random thought that comes to mind, and then He answers it right away. It’s happened several times in the past few weeks. I … Continue reading A Prayerful Life

Petscher’s Week of Gratitude

My spirit is deeply moved with gratitude and a deep longing to please the Lord. It’s been three years since The Diagnosis. I was miraculously healed more than 2.5 years ago, yet I still haven’t been able to express words that truly convey my appreciation for that gift.When I think back to this time in 2011, my heart still races and I lose my breath. … Continue reading Petscher’s Week of Gratitude

Hope in Unanswered Prayers

Barbara Holloway left the earth early Wednesday morning. Since then I waited to post this in case I got some amazing revelation that improved the tone of the post, but that just hasn’t happened. She was a very strong and devoted believer and we know she is in her rightful place, at the “beginning” of eternity with the Lord.  Romans 8:28, “And we know that … Continue reading Hope in Unanswered Prayers

The Art of Worthlessness and the Joy of Hope

I’m totally worthless, and I don’t say that in some sort of low self-esteem, depressed tone. I mean that I am completely devoid of all value. The things I do each day could be done by anyone. I live now to glorify God and not only do I repeatedly fail to do so, it also doesn’t matter to anyone but me that I do. The … Continue reading The Art of Worthlessness and the Joy of Hope
