At first, the news devastated Mom as she prepared to lose one of her children.
BUT, she was young in her faith, young enough to believe that what she read in the Bible was true. She bought my school clothes and continued and continued and continued to pray promises she had discovered, such as Isaiah 54:13. By the end of first grade, I received a clean bill of health!
Other than the bad diagnosis, Mom had only her faith in the One whom she had grown to love. She allowed the Holy Spirit to speak to her and to make some things in the Word of God become her words of promise. It came alive in her heart and grew bigger than the mounting evidence to the contrary.
Through my mother’s example and other life lessons, I’ve also learned to take Scriptures God has given me and turn them into prayers to conquer other “bad diagnoses” I’ve received. That’s why I wrote the eBook series!
