I received the following message from a dear friend. I copied and pasted it below because it is an encouraging word to anyone seeking the Lord for healing.

I have been struggling terribly with migraines. I am suffering much, even now laying on an ice pack and finally reading a book written by you,  my friend.  I have suffered migraines for 28 years.  Two weeks ago, I admitted myself to the Diamond Headache Clinic at St. Joseph's Hospital.  I took 9 two-hour IV treatments every eight hours for four days.  I had a horrible 3 am experience with a brutal, unkind nurse (who, after reading your book, I know I need to forgive.)  I have been out of the hospital for two weeks.  I have had daily headaches...and not many options.  I do not want to go back into the hospital.

I have no place left to turn but God.  So tonight, through tears, I am reading your book.  It us resonating with me.  I am reading the scriptures.  I choose to believe that I am healed.  I know that it is not God's will for either my daughter or me to suffer with sickness.  I believe that God will completely restore both of us to health.  James 5:15 "The prayer of faith will heal the sick and the Lord will raise him up." I will not stop or believing or proclaiming God's word, even if the symptoms continue.  I choose to trust the truth of God's word, no matter what pain tries to tell me.  I have no where else to go, but to God and His word.  I am greatly encouraged by the words of your book.  Thank you for writing it.  I will be in touch:)

After Doria sent the above email, I gave her Durmond's phone number. She called him for prayer and this is her VICTORIOUS REPORT below. 
I just got off the phone with Durmond Blatnik.  What a blessing!  Today, on April 25, 2012, God not only set me free from panic attacks, chest pain, and migraines, but he unleashed a spiritual rebirth in my life.  On August 4, 2000, the day of my divorce, I lost the child-like connection I had with my heavenly Father.  But today, at about 11 am Arizona time, (1 o'clock Illinois time) I confessed unforgiveness I had harbored toward Dan, against myself, and against God. 
I am delivered.  I am free.
I am delivered.  I am free.
I am delivered.  I am free.
I have recently been claiming Jeremiah 24:7 for my children, "I will give them a heart to know me, that I am the Lord.  They will be my people, and I will be their God, for they will return to me with all their heart."
God just revealed to me, that it is I who first needed to return to my God with my whole heart.  How good God is! 
I would like to visit you in Branson, MO so that we can re-connect.
Love in Christ,

Experience-based theology

Most people have an experience-based theology. They believe only what they have experienced through their five senses.
What does it mean to have a word-based theology? Simply this:
The Word of God is True, whether we experience it or not.
Word-based theology means God's word becomes manifest in my life when I speak His words (instead of whatever the experience may be) and doubt it not.

Chocolate or spinach?

Lord, couldn't You put a few more vitamins in chocolate than are in spinach? Not that I don't like spinach. Thank You for spinach. I'll eat some next summer. Now? Okay.

What is more real?

What is more real? The things we experience through the five senses? Or the eternal things we cannot see?
Some would answer both. However, the things we see with our natural eyes are temporary. The things we see through Faith are eternal.
Thought for the Easter season. When the penitent brought a lamb to be sacrificed for his sins, the priest did not examine him. He examined the lamb for blemishes. Jesus is the Lamb of God without blemish. I'm so glad that He is perfect, and His is only sacrifice that is acceptable.
Whee! I'm back on my blog, which has been down for awhile.
