I would not be surprised if anyone believes I wrote my book (Endure Everything with Patience) to share the story of the miraculous healing in my back. That is understandable, but not actually the point. I started writing the book months before I was healed, and though I believe God intended it to be a part of the story the entire time, I certainly had no idea. The healing brought fulfillment to the message I was hoping to encourage in people, but it did not change it.The book is about endurance—seeing God in the midst of your sufferings, and receiving from Him the strength to persevere.
God blessed me with many healings before I was ready to receive one in my back, and He has continued to offer healing in so many areas of my life. I have become more and more convicted that healing is a process. There are so many layers to our pains.
Friday (May 25) will mark five years since my back was miraculously healed upon receiving Jesus in the Eucharist while on pilgrimage in Rome, Italy. WOW…
