The Lord has said to me, that if I write another Blog, I can be healed of leukemia. Just another Blog and I'll be healed? Who can help resist? The trick was making sure that I can be heard. For when she calls, it's only those who answer that are published on her Blog. My mom told me to pray, and keep my fingers crossed. I did much more. I prayed and prayed and prayed that she would call when no one else could hear her voice. I prayed that when she called, the universe would be asleep. I prayed that when she called, my fingers would twitch, and I would know that she was calling. I prayed that every time she called, I'd hear and be the only one to answer to her call. She called and I was not the only one who answered. I heard them clamoring to be heard. But it was me she answered, and proclaimed that "yes" the ether said that I could write another Blog.
I didn't tell her what the Lord had said, but only that I wanted to be heard. But when she heard that I had had leukemia, she challenged me to bid it fly away, to ask the Lord to tell it, "Take a hike." I thought that she was joking, but I prayed the prayer she gave me with all faith, and sure enough, leukemia took a hike and can't be found. My mother says my cells have been renewed, all in one night. I shudder at the thought of what might be, if I had never taken him at his word. If, when he said to write another Blog, I'd shrugged it off, and missed eternity's provoking laugh when everything that God has said comes true, when everything is true, when everything that God has said comes true. When everything is true, and even when you don't believe, it's true.
My doctor says my mom should just promote the Universal Blog that bids leukemia take a hike, and sees it fly away, and leave her teaching job behind. He thinks that it's just magic that my cells look normal now, and thinks that by tomorrow they will look the same as they have always looked. But if tomorrow comes, and they look the same as they do now, you'll know, because my mom will write a Blog that says, "Hallelujah, God has healed my son." But jokes apart, you'll know, because this Blog is written several days before it posts, and if it posts, you'll know that I was healed.
The thought that every child of God must heed, is that the Lord will always answer to our need, but when he answers, it is we who must obey his instruction. What does writing another Blog have to do with being healed? To my youthful mind, there was no connection, but his promise was too powerful to resist. What did I have to lose? So I wrote another Blog, and now I'm healed. Wednesday's child, the Lord will always answer to your call, but listen carefully to his instruction, and obey it. Listen carefully and obey. Listen carefully, and obey.
