On this late Easter Sunday afternoon I find it absolutely the perfect time to update you about one of our community miracles.
Many of you who are new to our community have yet to participate in one of our miracle adventures. But you can read about our past miracles on our Kingdom Miracle page. (Link is in the navigation bar at the top)
But for many of you who have been family here for a few years you will remember our Kingdom miracle for Gina.
You can read Gina's story by clicking on the link at the bottom of this post.
So many, many of you prayed for this girl who was 17 years old and facing life-threatening melanoma cancer. You mailed letters, cards and sent emails by the hundreds. Makes me all teary-eyed again to just think how our community went to the Father in prayers of healing for Gina.
Gina was and still is my teenage daughter, Caitie's best friend. The girls finished out their senior year as Gina went through several treatments for the ocular cancer cells. The cancer did not go away. There were many dark days when she faced this disease alone.
Gina told me about a year ago that when she was feeling low, sad and despondent about her prognosis and the fact that she could be facing her death in five years she would pull out the letters we sent to her and read them over and again. She said, "They always made me cry but they also brought me comfort."
My friends, MY FRIENDS, I spoke with our Gina on Thursday.
Our miracle happened! Praise Jesus. She is in full remission with zero detectable cancer cells in her body.
Can I get a WOO HOO!! Hallelujah and thank you Jesus.
We serve a God who loves. Who heals and who answers prayer.
Thank you my family for surrounding this young girl. You demonstrative love helped to get her through the dark months. I love you so much. I love Jesus.
And on this day where we celebrate the risen King, I fall to my knees and weep with joy.
Isaiah 53:5 But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.
Amen. Please thank our Lord for this miracle. And I wait for God to reveal the next Kingdom miracle that He has for us. Love you so much, Lynn
Gina's request now is to pray that she remain cancer free for the rest of her life.
I posted a few of the prayers that were sent in down in the comments.. They will fill your heart.
