Praying for Miracles


 I have been having trouble making crafts lately. Some of them even ended in the garbage. They seemed to reflect what was on my heart. Confusion.
I guess there are some negative feelings that crafting cannot make it go away and the fact that in reality, there is sorrow, grief, helplessness, pain and disease.

I just found out that my brother-in-law from the Philippines is diagnosed with Stage 4 liver cancer.He was very close to us. He opened his home and fed us because our parents were not at home everyday. The doctors gave-up and subtly said that there's nothing that can be done but to wait on his deathbed. I do not know if it is possible for God to grow him a new liver but I am still holding on to the hope that he could still  provide a way. To top it all, the burden of my sister's and their children made it more painful. It hurts me to see them undergo the same situation like I had when my father suffered from the same reason. It is very difficult to think that I can't be with them for comfort and support. I guess I have to do that even I am all the way across the seas.

I will be taking a break from blogging/crafting for a few days or a week or just until I can pull my thoughts together. If without good news, hopefully  with a positive perspective. But I still believe in .....

Matt 18:19

Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. 

and... 

James 5:14-15

Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.
I don't usually ask, but I am making an exemption this time. If you could say a short prayer for my brother-in-law's situation and the comfort of his family, this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much. I hope you are all having a great day.

  1. If there is one thing I know for sure, Myric, it's that doctors don't "know" anything and their diagnoses are proved wrong time and time again because the doctors don't allow for the power of prayer and the power of belief in healing. If your brother-in-law truly believes God will heal him, there is nothing in this world that can prevent his healing.

    You are both in my prayers. xox

  3. I am so sorry to hear of your brother in laws illness. He must be a great person for you to show such great hurt. The Lord has a plan for everyone of us and I pray that whatever his decision is that you will be able to accept it gracefully.
