Is God throwing you a LIFE PRESERVER??

Is God throwing you a LIFE PRESERVER??

I’d like to share a story with you. There was a man struggling to survive a terrible flood. He crawled up on his roof and pleaded with God to save him. Soon, a helicopter came by and offered to lift him away. He said “No, I believe in God and He is going to rescue me!” And they flew away. After that, a boat came by and offered to let him climb aboard. Again, he said, “No, I believe in God and he will answer my prayers and rescue me.” So, the boat paddled away. Then, some firemen from a near-by roof top tried to toss him a rope to pull him to safety. Once again, he shouted back to them, “Thanks anyway, but, I have prayed to God and believe he will rescue me!” So, the fireman went on to the next house. The flood waters continued to rise and the man was swept away. When he entered the pearly gates, he asked Peter why God hadn’t answered his prayers and rescued him Peter replied, “What are you talking about- he sent a helicopter, a boat and a rescue team!!”

While this story is on the humorous side- there is a lot of truth in it as well!! Some times God sends an answer to prayer, but it is not the way we wanted him to answer and we ignore it or don’t even see it. Even though God can step in and perform miracles, sometimes he asks us to take part in the rescue! Not too long ago, a lady came forward in our church and was crying and asking for prayers for physical problems she was dealing with. I prayed about it and felt God leading me to meet with her and share the message of health and healing available through proper diet and lifestyle. So, she agreed to meet with me and I shared God’s directives for our health with her and she seemed receptive. She told me she had prayed and asked God why this was happening to her and asked for healing. But, she decided not to follow through and to my knowledge, her physical problems have continued to worsen. Most people pray to God and ask for healing, expecting him to swoop down and instantly heal their afflictions. Many of the testimonies I read, tell of people sharing how their prayers regarding their health were answered by someone sharing the message of health and healing through proper diet and lifestyle and how thankful they are. Some tell of an inexplicable urge to go into a book store for no apparent reason, only to find a book that lead them learn more about healing through God’s directives as found in the Bible. Have you or a loved one been praying for healing? Make sure you don’t miss the life-line God may be throwing your way, only to be swept away because that is not the way you wanted your prayers answered or because it wasn’t the answer you were looking for! You have to grab that life preserver and and use it- it won’t work unless you do!!

“Medicine” Cabinet ??

Image

For my first blog post, I would like to ask you a question and post an odd picture. How many of you out there are sick and tired of being sick and tired??!! It doesn’t have to be this way! To prove my point, I would like to invite you into our “medicine” cabinet. (Just be sure to stay out of the closets!) 😉 I took this shot just a few minutes ago. (Yes, that is a cow on top!) I didn’t remove anything or move anything around- just opened the door and snapped the picture. In it you will find the following items:

-home-made tooth paste (subject of an upcoming post soon!)
-2 bottles of cinnamon and peppermint oil I use flavor the above tooth paste
-Tubes of chap-stick from Burt’s Bees
-dental floss
-a digital thermometer that the batteries have long run out on. (I was going to replace them and decided that would be a waste of money since we never use the thing.)
-contact lens cases and solutions
-retainer- think this one is Louis’ but don’t see him using it much 😉
-some ear cleaning stuff for our son Trevor who wears hearing aids (read on our “about us” page on the website if you are interested to know how he lost his hearing.)
-and a little flash light I put in there in case we needed to be up in the middle of the night pilfering through the medicine cabinet in the dark and won’t have to turn in the big bright bathroom lights. Also never used and probably full of dead batteries.

Notice anything missing from our “medicine” cabinet? Maybe I should change the name of it to something else- since there is no “medicine” in it! No aspirin or Tylenol, no Pepto, no Tums, Benadryl or cough medicines, nothing for runny noses or fevers. Why? Because we haven’t needed them for years! And, NO prescription drugs to be found either!! Most people our age already find themselves on at least a couple of prescriptions the doctors tell them they will be taking the rest of their lives. I could not tell you the last time I have been to a doctor. I can tell you the last time any of us was “sick”. It was about 6 years ago when we moved into our newly built home, but this “illness” was not caused by a virus or any other bug…have you ever heard of “new building sickness”? I can tell you it is REAL! (But, we’ll save that discussion for another day! Google it if you can’t wait!) And, had we not been in as good of health as we were, I can tell you we would have been a lot worse off! Anyway, it is possible to live life in a healthy manner and not have to worry about almost all of the common illnesses and diseases facing so many in our modern day society. Although they keep researching and telling us there is no cure for the common cold- I can tell you that there is indeed! I can show you testimonies of 1,000s of people who haven’t had so much as a cold for over 30+ years and even longer! And, even more amazing than that- testimonies of healing from all types and forms of cancer, diabetes (see our testimonials page on the website!), lupus, arthritis, fibromyalgia, leukemia, MS, and the list goes on and on even right down to dandruff, indigestion, acne and heartburn! Want to learn more?? Stay tuned as we bring you useful information, articles, research, great recipes and other fun stuff to help you be healthy and live life to the fullest! God’s desire is for us to be healthy! As it says in 3 John 1:2, “I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in HEALTH, as I know that it is well with your soul.” Come and join us we learn how to put the principles God provided in his word for our health into practice to live a long, healthy and happy life!!

*Added note- I am expecting the “medicine” cabinet to grow even more empty in the future. My husband Louis has worn contacts and glasses for about as long as I have known him. Over the past few years, his prescription has been decreasing- his eyesight actually IMPROVING (not getting worse with age as they will tell you is the norm) much to the utter amazement of his eye doctor who has never seen anything like this happen before! So, hopefully soon, we can rid the cabinet of all the contact lens stuff too! I have read testimonies of others who have been able to throw their glasses and contacts away as well! Maybe someone out there can give us some ideas of what we can fill our empty “medicine” cabinet with!
