This Month's Article was written by
Donna R. Brown


Have you sung “Jesus loves me?   During difficult times we want to be in Jesus’ lap and let Him hold us until the storm is over.     

In January 2013, I began having health issues.  I saw many specialists and nothing could be found.  In November 2013, I hemorrhaged; had a biopsy; and, was diagnosed with uterine cancer.  A complete hysterectomy was performed.  In the recovery room I was told that it appeared the tumor had been contained.  After the pathology review and a visit with the oncologist, we were told that the cancer had not been contained; it was more advanced; and, chemo and radiation would be required.  I fell apart emotionally.  That’s where this testimony truly begins.

A friend from work gave me a book on the healing powers of God.  Through the book, I was reminded that the Lord’s Word is alive and that He is the same today as He was yesterday. I could believe God for my healing and fight for it or I could give up.  I knew I could not waste time, so started clinging to Proverbs: 4:20 – 22:

My son, give attention to my words, incline your ears to my sayings:  Do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart; for they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh.”

I felt that my healing depended on keeping the Word of God in my heart and mind.  I understood that to say one thing and to believe another was being double minded and in James we are told that a double-minded man receives nothing from God.

I was ready to receive healing but the Holy Spirit said I had to forgive others.  I had people in my life that I was hanging on to unforgiveness toward.  I knew that forgiveness is a decision, not an emotion so I had to pray and ask the Lord to help me make the decision to forgive. 

The Holy Spirit told me a second step was required.  I had argued with the Lord that I contributed to the Lord’s work; other organizations and helped family and in my own way I felt I was tithing.

I read Malachi 3  “Will a man rob God?”  Yet you have robbed Me!  But I asked, ‘In what way have I robbed you, Lord?’  And the Lord answered, “In tithes and offerings.  You are cursed with a curse, for you have robbed Me and even this whole nation.  Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in the Lord’s 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 for you to receive it.” 

I calculated 10% of my gross pay and decided to always give God what is His.  

The treatments began in a “sandwich protocol”.  Three chemo’s; 25 radiations; and, ending with three chemos.  When the chemos started, I was again attacked by fear. I would say out loud, “Fear, in the name of Jesus, get away from me.  I belong to the King and I serve Him.  I will not die but live and declare the works of the Lord.”   (Psalm 118:17).

I also spoke to the cancer aloud.  “Cancer, I command you in the name of Jesus, to leave my body.”  Why?  Remember when Jesus walked the earth He spoke to fevers, storms, and evil spirits.   We are made in His image and He instructed us to be like Him.  Matthew 18:18 states “I tell you the truth, whatever you forbid on earth will be forbidden in heaven, and whatever you permit on earth will be permitted in heaven.”  

Over the past years, medical research has proven that people of faith are usually more positive and heal faster.  Too many times, people are waiting for God to heal them when, He already has done it.  On the cross Jesus redeemed us from the entire curse that includes our sins and sickness.  First Peter 2:24 tells us that “by Jesus’ stripes, we are healed”.  All of us have had loved ones that we have prayed for healing and the Lord answered our prayers in a different way.  We need to always pray, believe for the miracle, and to remember that God sees the full picture and knows what is best for us.

I was anointed at church, as commanded in James 5 “Is anyone among you sick?  Let him call 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 sick and the Lord will raise him up.  And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.”

If you are in the midst of any challenge (physical, emotional, financial, etc.), I urge you to believe; have faith; and, stay committed to the scriptures.

The treatments are over; the CT scans have verified I am cancer free; and, my life will never be the same.   I realize more than ever that we are in this world to love and serve God and to be His hands and feet.

I leave you with two requests as Jack comes forward to conclude our sharing.   Periodic CT scans will be scheduled.  I am claiming they will continue to be clear, however, your prayers to cover me will be appreciated.  And, since we know that we are the hands and feet of Jesus, will you serve Him with us and claim 2 Chronicles 7:14  “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
