I'm claiming my miracle!

Do you believe God still performs miracles on this earth; right now, today? All of us can probably remember Jesus' miracles in the Bible from our days in Sunday School; turning water to wine, feeding 4,000 people from 7 loaves of bread and a few fish, raising Lazarus from the dead, healing the blind man, telling the man who had been paralyzed all of his life to get up off his mat and walk. There were many other miracles that Jesus performed during his short time here on earth to strengthen the faith of everyone who surrounded him, I'm sure a lot of people remember them.

I believe that God is still in the business of performing miracles today. Many times in the Bible we see the words ' according to your faith, it will be done to you, or ' by your faith, you are healed.'  I have to be honest and say that many times over the past 12 1/2 years, during this journey I've had with MS, my mind has been consumed with thoughts of my faith and whether it is strong enough. That has to be the reason I'm not healed of my MS, right? It's gotta be me and my lack of faith.

I know and believe that our Almighty God is Holy and in charge of this whole universe. So, it only makes sense that my one little miracle, is nothing for Him, right? It's gotta be me!!!

I believe God does performs miracles In His Time, and that is the magic phrase, His time; not mine, not yours, not anybody else's. He has a purpose and plan for each and every one of us, and only He knows our journey, our paths, our mountains and our valleys. Our job is to Believe. Believe in Him, Believe that He is who he says he is. Believe that he will keep his promises to those who love him and are called according to His purposes.

As I approach my upcoming CCSVI angioplasty surgery for my MS on 8/19, I am humbled and encouraged by my many friends who have told me how excited they are for me, and that I am "due for my miracle." as one close friend put it. Be careful they all say, "don't get your hopes up too high."

I've prayed for so long for a miracle exactly like this to happen. I have asked God to give me my miracle, somehow, someway. I truly believe that my CCSVI angioplasty surgery is my miracle! I am believing that because I think God has ordered this whole process-- all of the pieces have fit together perfectly, just like a puzzle. No delays, no problems, just green lights...Totally a God-Thing.

Will I get up and do a dance around the room after my surgery? Probably not, but I am believing that this is the beginning of my healing. Right now, I am re-reading a wonderful book that my friend Ron Watts gave me many years ago, entitled "Your Healing is within you." by Canon Jim Glennon of St. Andrews Cathedral in Sydney, Australia. He has been part of a healing ministry for many years and has seen the Lord work in marvelous ways. Through this remarkable book and the love of my family and many friends, my faith is being strengthened to claim my miracle!

I believe my upcoming procedure is just the beginning of a whole new life for me. Will it be an easy life? Come on, does anybody have an easy life? No, Will I be healed of my MS? I know that In His time I will be healed. His time may be now and it may be in eternity, but whatever He gives me, I am claiming that as my miracle! I am moving forward, empowered by His strength and with new confidence to serve Him and proclaim His Name.

My verse today is from Mark 11:24

"Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it and it will be yours."

My prayer for today:

Dear Lord Jesus:

Thank you for this beautiful day. Thank you for my family and friends who support and love me each day. Thank you for miracles that you are still performing! Lord, I am claiming my Miracle! I am believing that you are going to do even more wonderful and marvelous things in my life, according toYour will. Give me patience Lord, give me strength to move forward boldly in Your Name. The fields are ripe Lord and the harvesters are few. Let me be one of your harvesters with renewed passion. The world needs you Jesus, heal me so I can proclaim your greatness to everyone I know and love and new people I do no even know!

In Jesus Name I pray,
