Everyone goes through times of difficulty or times when things just seem dark and bleak. During these challenging times, know that we are not alone. God has a plan to drive out the darkness—He will flood us with His joyful light! It’s going to happen suddenly, unexpectedly; we won’t see it coming.
We woke up, and it was still dark. Nothing had changed, but suddenly we get the break we need, our health turns around, we meet the right person. The light comes bursting in.
If we’ve been going through a rough season, get ready for the goodness of God in a new way. Know that His light is about to come crashing in! Get ready for breakthroughs. Get ready for restoration. Suddenly, things can change! God wants His glory to be seen on us. He wants us to stand out in the crowd. He wants us to be so blessed that everyone around us can see His goodness. So keep standing, keep believing, keep hoping and keep declaring His Word because His light is coming!
I say all this because, the past 7 weeks have been the most challenging weeks of my entire life. I have experience more pain recently than my entire life. The pain stayed in my body for at least 22 of the 24 hours of each day. It was relentless and very active. Have you ever hit your toe against a door, and you experience that sudden pain throughout your body and then a few minutes later....the pain is gone? Well, with Radiation Flare Ups, the pain does not leave. I was eating Pain Killers like they were skittles, but no relief. There were a couple of nights I asked God why was this happening to me? And, if it were my time to go, I was ready! Pain plays so many tricks with your mind, body and spirit....and, now I completely understand why some people get addicted to Pain killers.
As the pain runs through your body, you are willing to do almost anything to make it stop and simply go away.
Well, I'm into my 8th week of the Radiation Flare ups and the pain is down to about an hour per day and my body is healing through the grace and love of God. Please understand, that even though I have not had a good nights sleep in months, my faith and love in God remains untethered.
He will always bring us through the tough times in which will make us stronger in faith and will broaden and strengthen our spirit. I am getting better and will continue to get better as my faith will win!
Note: Elisa is a Rock Star......her willingness and love to help me us unwavering.

Was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer on July 18, 2018 which may have crushed someone's soul and spirit. However, it did the opposite, as I already knew GOD had claimed my victory over this disease and was using me as an instrument to others who suffer from this deadly disease.
