Peace From God


Have you ever prayed for more faith?


What if a trail where to come your way, would you still hold on to the Lord? Would you still rather cry out to God our Father than listen to people's advise? I wanna write a bit of what we've experienced this past year, hoping and praying that it will be a blessing to someone who reads this. 

2015 was the most difficult but most blessed year of
my life, I have grown so much closer to the Lord, A year ago December 2 - 2014 we found out that I have cancer, just hearing that put fear into me, I was 20 weeks pregnant at the time plus we had a little toddler, I couldn't understand why something like that would happen to me especially at my age I couldn't sleep that night after spending a long day at the hospital I cried out to the Lord all night until a thought came to mind and that thought was this:



And behold, a leper came and worshiped Him saying, 
Lord, if You are 
willing, You can make me clean. 

Then Jesus put out His hand and touched him, saying, I

 am willing be 
cleansed, Immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

Matthew 8: 2-3


If Jesus can heal leprosy can't He also heal cancer?
I said Lord, if You are willing You can heal me and I Immediately felt His peace come over me, since then I haven't been worried about it, of course Satan hate's it he is trying ALL he has to get me to worry about it but I praise God that He keeps giving me strength to stand against Satan, I can't tell you how many times I have asked God for
strength. Some people have been telling me that they are surprised that I'm taking it so well, let me tell you it's not me at all, it's my Father who gives me strength, it's surely not always easy especially when I get over loaded with advise,


If I can fulfill God's purpose in my life through a trail, than may a trail always be in my life.


Sometimes when I hear how family or friends are scared for my sake and I feel the size of the tumor (last time I got it measured it was 22.2 cm long and 17.5 cm wide and it's probably still the same) anyway than fear starts to creep in and I think what if I where to go to my heavenly home, what would happen to my 2 small children who still need
mommy for everything? What does God's word say about this?



He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me, 
he who 
loves son or DAUGHTER's more than Me 
is NOT worthy of Me. 
Matthew 10: 37

So if God wants to take me Home, praise and glory be to Him! Or if He wants me to stay here on earth longer, praise and glory be to Him! I thank God that He has given us power to resist fear



For God has NOT given us a spirit of fear, but of POWER and of love

and of a sound mind.
2 Timothy 1: 7

I gave my life to the Lord 5 years ago and I have also given this disease to the Lord I have absolutely no reason to worry about it I am in good hands and so is my everything my all and all. This past December my husband and I saw the Lord care for His children like we have never seen before. I was doing vitamin C IV's and oxygen treatments and I was also taking a lot of different stuff (14 to be exact) so in just 3 weeks we spent $4000.00 dollars just on me, it was financially draining for us we didn't see it possible to buy any gifts for Christmas yet, we needed everything, since we don't have credit cards to trust in, what else could we trust in but God?
Which He should always be the first one we should go to, not the last, our rent and bills where due, we needed groceries, we needed money for gas so that I could go do the treatments everyday, our children needed diapers, and our children and I had an appointment we didn't have money to pay for, we didn't see how everything was gonna work out, I kept repeating the verse


Consider the Ravens for they neither sow nor reap 
which neither have 
storehouse nor barn and God feeds them, 
of how much more value are you then the birds?

Luke 12: 24

So I said "Lord, I trust that You'll take care of our needs."



Therefore do not worry, saying, what shall we eat? Or what shall we 
drink? Or what shall we wear?

For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your Heavenly Father 
knows that you need all these things.
Matthew 6: 31-32

I had no idea what God was about to do, the next day we received 2 packs of diapers one for each, I got to go do the treatments everyday with someone else's car and we didn't have to pay for the gas, we didn't have to pay our rent, all our bills where paid for, we received some groceries, and I was gonna cancel our appointment cause we didn't have money to pay for it, but when I called, she said we didn't have to pay for it this time, we received money, some of it we have no idea where it came from, we received gift cards, plus we received a free turkey from the grocery store.

Most of this happened in 1 week. (2 weeks before Christmas) who else could have done this but God? I can't thank God enough for it I still get goose bumps just thinking about it. I am so grateful for how the Lord has shown us what He can do, if we only trust in Him.

Bring all the tithes into storehouse, 
that there may be food in My 
house, 

AND TRY ME NOW IN THIS, SAYS THE LORD OF HOSTS, 

if I will not 

open for you the windows of heaven, and pour out for you such blessing

that there will not be room enough to receive it.
Malachi 3: 10

God surely opened the windows of heaven and poured His blessings on us, It's so easy to worry when we're in a situation where we can't see a way out but why aren't we just trusting God? We can bring all our burdens and worries to Him,

Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I WILL GIVE YOU REST.

Matthew 11:28

What a wonderful promise, I love that verse.


My story may seem very small compare to yours but I thank and praise God for what He has and is doing in my life, a lot of young people my age have not experienced God's peace and faithfulness and strength like I have.



I'd like to encourage all of us to go to the arms of Jesus for every, mean EVERY situation we face each day.
