You may remember that a few weeks ago, I went to a conference and mustered some courage from seeing God do the impossible. And then I started to believe it was possible. And that maybe God could use me to bring healing to people’s bodies and lives too.
For years, I complained to God that I just didn’t have faith to see him heal people. But I still noticed all the sick and injured people as I went about my life.
I saw them, but I did nothing. It was miserable.
While at the conference, I realized it was hope I was missing the whole time. Faith is the substance of what I hope for. So if I don’t hope, faith has nothing to hang on to.
The catch: without faith, it is impossible to please God. Wow. Straight forward.
So essentially, if I need hope to have faith, and I need faith to please God, then I need hope to please God.
Hope is just as essential as faith. It is the building block of faith.
So that was what I learned, and little by little, I started. I prayed. And I still do.
I see some healing, and I feel great. And some days, when I pray and people don’t get healed, I just get frustrated and disappointed and wonder what’s wrong with me.
Josh reminded me that faith pleases God, and my prayers, even when I don’t see answers immediately, demonstrate faith. So I am making God happy, and that really is all I need to worry about.
So without further ado, I would like to introduce to you my latest project. It used to be scratched down on little index cards, and the stories still are. But I wanted to put them out here to encourage people who want to pray for healing too, and to let the skeptics know that I’m not selling anything, this doesn’t always work, but I want to believe big because God is big.
The Prayer and Healing Journal can be found here. Stop by often for new stories of breakthrough, miracles, healings and the honest truth about the in-between days when I wonder where God is.
