  • Thanks Ray. Praying for your healing. I appreciate the advice to be brutally honest with God, yet without accusing.

    Keep trusting god

  • Ten years ago my niece had a brain aneurysm and doctors at one of the best hospitals thought she would not live. That was when I learned to praise God for her aneurysm. Two weeks after she was in the hospital I spoke to her and said “Joanna’s back!!” I sent a Thank You note to the neurology department expressing my thanks to them, because they were God’s Assistants.

    I asked the Lord this morning for help with pain from my past and present losses, to show me how to walk this path, practical ways to cope and restore my joy in Him. This video came through a very unexpected source, Ray Edwards, who does business copywriting materials. I came close to not opening it, but was prompted to go ahead and open it. I have bookmarked it to help me remember how to bring my pain to the only one who can heal it. What you said at the end about guarding my heart is what I was told yesterday; it was as if God was giving it emphasis through you. Thank you for sharing this video! Many blessings on you and your ministry!!!

    Thank you Ray. I understand very well about this kind of pain. My husband Ray, died in March this year with brain cancer. At the beginning, doctors said he had less than 2 weeks, after a surgery he recovered completely but months after that, the tumor reappeared, this time he was told that could live 6 months. He lived 4 years after the diagnosis, but the road was very painful, up and downs. Days of victory and days of battle to see the miracle. But at the end, we surely had the victory, we fight the very good battle of faith.
    Now he is with the Lord experiencing the real life, the only one, experiencing the unlimited love of our Father and we learned a lot about unconditional love. Many times I went to the Lord asking why! Many times with pain and frustration, my heart was open to Him all the time, humble but true. He knows me, I cannot hide any thought, or any feeling from Him… so why could I try to do so? For the contrary, He knows better our humanity, He made us, He is the only one who is able to understand us completely.
    His unconditional love was my only anchor to live one day at the time, living those times with purpose and completely sure that no matter what, the victory was ours. Victory is not receiving what we ask, but to receive with open heart what He lovingly offers to us. Now I understand better what life and death are, and both are a blessing when we really know Him. Thank God, I learned!
    Thanks Ray to share! God Bless You!

    Every one say.s: “he/she has a plan. Given what is happening in our world and lives it is hard to know what that plan is…

    God always heals he doesn’t heal the way men think he should heal and men won’t even for the most part even see the healing but God always heals he’s a healing God he’s a giving God God never does nothing without healing someone or something
