What freedom in the USA can you say you are thankful for? Last night I met with a woman who found out she has more cancer in her body after three years of trying to eradicate it. Supposedly they have told her this is a “new” cancer that is already stage four. After having both breast removed a few years ago, she was going in this week to have more lymph nodes cut out. They have suggested an experimental cancer treatment this time and she will enter the study in a month or so. She shared her journey which began some three years ago. Parts of it were astounding and unbelievable. The things she has been told and the tough decisions she has had to make have altered her life as she knows it.
She came to me for advice on how to get started with some natural remedies and wanted to begin to use essential oils right away. We chatted for over two hours and I gave her some hard advice about where to begin. No one wants to hear the drastic change in diet that needs to happen, the supplements that one needs to feed the body, or the exercise that is needed to keep the fluids flowing, something even oncologists don’t see a need for. We can’t blame them for that, well kinda. They have only a few hours in nutritional training as they work their way through school and it is not there #1 recommendation. Chemical warfare is what they were trained in and some see it as the only way.
At the end of our time, I asked if I could pray for her and she agreed. Right there in Applebee’s we took more than a few minutes to pray to the God who hears and we did it unashamedly. I blocked out all around me and began to focus on this new friend of mine, the one who had a great, positive spirit and was eager to move in a different direction this time. She listened intently and I’m sure was praying along with me as we both were asking for healing and faith and strength.
As I reflected on the evening on the way home, I was thankful for the freedom I have in this good ole U S of A. I can still pray in public without any restraints. I thanked the Lord and will not take it for granted. Don’t take it for granted least our freedoms be taken away. This is a privilege. Treat it like one. Remember God is and always will be in control, the King of the world. Trust, have faith, and keep on doing your part as an individual and in your home. It begins with us! Minister to those around you. Take every opportunity to tap into Almighty God. He is the “Great Physician.” “Don’t give up in doing good . . . you will reap a harvest if you don’t give up.”
