Healing Isn’t Particularly Beautiful

“All who have been graciously, sovereignly, compassionately touched by the Savior and received the healing blood of his cross, we can see. Yes we all, like this guy from Bethsaida, have some blurriness of sight. But, don’t look away discouraged. See the Savior touch again. See him dip his finger in the great ocean of his blood and reapply. We are seeing better. We are loving more. This is due to the Savior’s powerful and gracious compassion.” — Erik Raymond

Jesus’ ministry here on earth in human form was short (around 33ish years, to be exact). But a major part of that ministry was physical healing. These miracles weren’t identical — He didn’t have “one perfect way” of healing a person. Just as we are all individuals, His miracles were exactly what that person needed at the exact time and in the exact way they needed it.

There was a blind man who Jesus led away from the crowds, spit in his eyes, laid hands on him, and then asked him if he could see. At first, his sight was blurry, so Jesus laid hands on him again — and his sight was completely restored!

April: Oral Cancer Awareness Month

I am privileged and blessed to be here for the second year in a row to bring awareness to oral cancer. A year and a half has gone by so quickly!

It’s incredible to look back and see how God has worked my story into something completely NEW. Health coaching and educating others on health and wellness has become a passion that I never expected! And being able to give people the tools make better informed decisions about how to take care of themselves and their family, and therefore impacting future generations, is just so humbling. Because, why wouldn’t you want to understand stress management, save on medical bills, have increased energy, and improve self-confidence – just to name a few?!

The fact of the matter is, I should not be here today writing this post. I was given six months with the cancer having spread to my lymph nodes. I was supposed to have lung issues. I was supposed to see the spread throughout my body- all because I refused conventional, Western treatment.

One year and six months later, I’m healthier, stronger, more active, and best of all…completely cancer-free.

Oral cancer is not something to mess with. Oral care is so important: the chemicals you allow into your body through your mouth, the toothpastes, the artificial teeth-whiteners, the water you drink…so many environmental factors with pesticides in our food supply, chemicals in processed meals, and the lotions, soaps, and makeup you use on your skin DAILY…

All contributing to damaging your cell DNA, hurting your immune system, and leading to cancerous tumors, distressed lymphatic systems, and suppressed detoxification in the body.

Ladies and gentlemen, IT ALL MATTERS. Take it from someone who personally knows that making the right decisions about health and wellness means living healthier, happier, and free of disease…make the choice TODAY to investigate and live informed! Cancers are more prevalent in today’s society than ever before- with the leading cause of young adult deaths being caused by the TREATMENT of these diseases.

And you have the opportunity to make immediate changes to your lifestyle before you experience a life-changing diagnosis. Awareness is the first step. Preventative measures are the key.




Walk This Way

“…your time of tears is over. Cry for help and you’ll find it’s grace and more grace. The moment he hears, he’ll answer. Just as the Master kept you alive during the hard times, he’ll keep your teacher alive and present among you. Your teacher will be right there, local and on the job, urging you on whenever you wander left or right: “This is the right road. Walk down this road.”  – Isaiah 30:19-21 (MSG)

Listen; God answers prayer.

That’s not just a feel-good saying or a wish to throw up at the sky when we’re feeling helpless. Time and time again, scripture is full of God coming through in mighty and powerful ways for those who trust Him; right on time, every single time.

And if examples in history aren’t enough, I have experienced His goodness and mercy over and over again in my personal story. So I can say with absolute certainty: God answers prayer.

There is nothing too great for Him. Nothing is impossible for Him to accomplish. But sometimes I think that maybe we are brought to the very edge of ourselves and our humanness in order for Him to prove His faithfulness and our reliance on Him. If the Holy Spirit is guiding us, we have that clear, still, small voice inside that says, “This is the way, walk in it.” And we have to take those steps in faith, believing that no matter how crazy the next step might be, the outcome will be God’s best for us. 

When I chose to walk this route of holistic healing instead of conventional medicine (radiation), I truly believe that as I sat there in the radiation oncology office, no longer hearing the doctor over the roar in my ears and the spinning of the room, my hands tightly clasped in my lap and tears choking me…I was stilled inside by clarity and those four words: “Do you trust Me?”

Nineteen months later, I’m holding to the promises He’s made to me about health, healing, and the future. Still choosing life. Still confident in seeing the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living (Ps. 27:13). Proving His faithfulness to me and to my family, over and over.

It never stops. His faithfulness and unfailing love never ends.

So then…why does my confidence rely on tomorrow’s proof? Why isn’t His faithfulness in the past enough for me?

My doubt seems insignificant in comparison to the Israelites. When I read about the ways God came through for them (parting the Red Sea, saving them from slavery, sending miracle after miracle their way and leading them to the Promised Land- just to name a few!), and how they constantly forgot who God was and turned back to rebellion, I want to shake them in disbelief. “Why don’t you get it?” I want to yell at them. “God loved you so much and was so merciful to you time and time again- but you chose to worry, complain, and disobey instead!”

Then, I get a nice reality check. I’m no different in my worry, anxiety, doubt, and disobedience. I rejoice and feel so loved and blessed when He meets my needs, always right on time. But when I’m in the desert, or when it’s dark and I’m afraid to take another step further, or I sink into depression or despair because the answer (in my finite brain) is never coming…

I turn to my own strength. I strive, struggle, and lose myself in an emotional rollercoaster.

“Do you trust Me?”

Those words are true in ALL circumstances. Not just in the path I’ve been led to in my freedom from illness, but in my worry about where next month’s rent is coming from. When I stress about work. When I’m angry over situations caused by others that I internalize or take personally. When I’m feeling so beyond myself and my capabilities. When the hard times seem neverending.

He is able. That impossible thing- HE WILL DO IT. If you’re walking faithfully with Christ, day by day, then I guarantee you will see His mercy and grace. Those areas of life where you strive and struggle- give them over to a God who sees your need and knows exactly how to fulfill it. And I also guarantee that when He meets your need, many times it’s in a way that blesses you AND blesses someone else. Maybe He’s using you to encourage, reassure, or bring an answer to others through your story. You don’t know the full extent what He’s doing with your surrendered life!

For His glory, and your good. Always. Be encouraged, wherever you are at today, that your prayers are being heard, and He is answering them.
