So, I have my oldest daughter, Shandi Hass, in college out in Chicago. Currently we are blessed to have her other Grandparents paying for her tuition. My mom and I are paying her rent, groceries, spending money and paying also for school supplies!!! VERY TIGHT BUDGET!! We just paid her rent, a bit late, but it’s paid. However, she’s a photographer and her current semester is almost over and she needed paper to print her photo project on to pass her semester. We barely made rent and her paper was going to be about $200.00. I kept believing that God would supply and bring this money to us, it was a must have!! She attended a photo fair shop and met a girl (representative for a photo company) and Shandi entered a contest and won some free paper, but not the size we needed. The women then said she is going to give her a free roll (the kind we needed) and it would be shipped to her by this Wednesday!!! Thank You God!! The women also sent her this text message: “something in my heart/head told me to send this your way, and I just do what I’m guided to do” How awesome is that!!! Again, thank you Lord

An Awesome God!

Our daughter, Amy Langione, has been suffering with Trigeminal Neuralgia for over 2 years. We have gone to neurosurgeons in York and all they would do is want to medicate her and tell her there is nothing they can do for her. It is one of the most painful diseases there is and they call it the suicide disease because of the pain. We have been praying and our awesome God opened many doors for her! We were told about a doctor at Hopkins that this is all he does but it would be hard to get in. We called and had an appointment within 2 weeks. When we were there he said she needed surgery and he couldn’t do it for at least 6 to 8 weeks. Even though she was upset, we could see the light at the end of a dark tunnel. They called two days later and had in her for surgery 2 weeks later. Praise God!!! She had the surgery 2 weeks ago and is still recovering but the pain she had before is almost completely gone. The doctors in York also told her she has a brain tumor on the other side of her brain that didn’t have anything to do with the Trigeminal Neuralgia. We went for follow up at Hopkins on Thursday and they couldn’t find the tumor!!!!! I know God healed her!!! They want her to have more test but we know God has already healed her and they will NOT find anything! Our God is an awesome God!!!!!

Encouragement

Leave a comment

I have been desiring to see God work in my life every day. For the most part He’ll parade people by me and it’s obvious what they need, I’ll pray and sometimes I see Him move and sometimes not. When the “not” happens it can be slightly discouraging. I was having a discouraging day when it occurred to me to return a call to my brother who lives several hours away. When I called he said to me “you know, in the year since we’ve been in touch again, it has been the best year of my life!” That was encouraging! Backing up a bit we had lost touch for about 30 years and didn’t do much other than the occasional Christmas card and phone call. He had left home when he was 18 and never really looked back having a lot of “issues” with my parents. When I caught up with him he was looking pretty rough. His knees were shot and all he could do was hobble. He was still bitter about things my parents had done more than 40 years prior. He knew Jesus and in fact was the one who presented me with the salvation prayer when I was young. Still, he seemed to be hurting quite a bit. I told him about what I had been hearing in church about our identity in Christ and that we could do the things Jesus did. I tried to help him with the resentments he had with our parents while having compassion for the pain he felt. He was also overwhelmed with a work situation. We talked, we prayed, we laughed and things seemed a little lighter for him. I went to lay hands on his knees and being that I was just starting to do these types things and expect instant results, I was disappointed that nothing seemed to happen while I prayed. Still I knew it was better to try than not. I was a little embarrassed but at least he knew that I loved him enough to give it a try. Coming back up to the present, he said that his life was better than ever, that he was down to working one job that he loved, he loved the church he was involved with and the people there and his knees were much better. He was walking about 8-10 miles a day and had dropped several pounds. So, thank God for bringing out encouragement at the right time! We don’t always see the answers to our prayers right away but we should always believe that he’s working it out when we are praying according to his will. Thank you Jesus!

Give Me Proof

Leave a comment

I have been seeing God move in a lot of great ways lately, but this morning I was telling Him that I needed to see more to know that this isn’t all in my head. It amazes me that I would think this with as much as I’ve experienced with Him in the past and what I’ve seen and experienced with Him lately, but there I was. When I went into work today I was startled to see someone who I thought was out for the week because of surgery. This person and I have had a lot of head-butting sessions in the past and we both felt like the other person was always attacking and looking for fault. I had tried to make peace with her but in the end we would still end up at odds with each other. One day, a couple of months ago I noticed she was in a lot of pain due to a knee problem. She said she had seen her doctor and that they had done an MRI and had determined that she definitely needed surgery. I told her I went to this crazy church where they believe that we actually become like Jesus and can do the things He did. I asked her if I could pray for her knee. She looked surprised and said "Sure!". I asked if I could lay hands on her knee, I commanded the pain to be gone in Jesus’ name and prayed for the restoration of her knee. She looked surprised and said that it was better but maybe not 100%. I said I believed it would continue to get better and we left it at that. I ran into her a few times over the next couple of months and she said that she would still need the surgery and this week she was out for the surgery. When she showed up for work during the time she was supposed to be out recovering I said I was surprised that she healed from the surgery so quickly. She told me after we were out of the meeting that she didn’t have the surgery. She said when she went in and they were taking her vital signs that things were out of whack and they couldn’t proceed. When the doctor came to her to talk about the surgery all of her signs had returned to normal. He asked what was going on with her knee and she said it was almost completely back to normal with only a small amount of things she couldn’t do with it. He called off the surgery. She said she believes that God healed her. We were both very excited about it! I guess it doesn’t hurt to ask God for a little proof every now and then!

Seeing to Believing

Leave a comment

I recently returned home from Guatemala, where God did amazing things!!! We saw the lame walk, a mute man speak praises to Jesus, and an "immobile," damaged arm move. We saw a man who once couldn’t hear out of one ear, receive the Gospel in that same ear. We saw the sick recover: sore throats, stomach aches, and headaches leave in Jesus’ Name. We saw the oppressed set free, and the once-alcoholic, now born again and filled with the Holy Spirit, lead another man to Jesus. We saw people born again into the kingdom of God, and reconciliation where there was once no home. We saw those who were once unsure of their salvation, become sure, and the power of the Holy Spirit move. We saw people filled with the Holy Ghost immediately speak in tongues, and the lost, hurt, and abandoned orphan receive the love, joy and peace of the Lord. Praise God! Queen Sheba said to king Solomon that she did not believe the report she had heard of him in her own land, until she saw it for herself, and that when she did see it, it was even more than what she had heard (1 Kings 10). The same was true for me–it took seeing God use me, to believe that He wanted to, and when He did, it was beyond any expectation I could have had! He is SO good, and He wants to use YOU to show it! He’s not waiting until you go on a mission trip to use you, either. He loves those of us in the States as much as anyone else. You already have a mission field. He’s calling you to advance His kingdom. If you don’t, who will? I am no different than anyone else… You can believe that He will use YOU. He promises that His Word NEVER returns void–NEVER!!! There’s always a harvest of some sort. Take Him at His Word that "these signs shall follow those that believe…" because they will. His Word is Truth, and the world (even our neighbors) need to hear it. What if you could be the one God uses to change their eternal destiny? You’ll never know, if you never try. Step out in faith, and let Him use you to shine His light before men, that they may see your good deeds, and glorify your Father in heaven. Amen!

In An Elevator

Leave a comment

Wanted to share this testimony from a couple of days ago in a hotel:

 
As I was getting ready to come up the elevator, I came across these two ladies and they were trying to get ice from the front desk. I asked if they were ok and the one lady had burned her hand on the waffle iron at the breakfast. I got to talking to them for a couple minutes and she was saying she’d be alright and this would pass and then said something about Passover (making a joke). I didn’t catch it at first and they then said they were Jewish (I assume not Messianic-Jews believing in Jesus but wasn’t 100% sure of that. I figured they weren’t Christian-Jewish). I held the elevator for them and going up I had a boldness come and I told the ladies: "I am a Christian and have seen Jesus do some cool things and would you mind if I pray for you/for your hand." She paused a moment and said, “no that’s fine, prayer is always good.” So I prayed and thanked God for her and I said "thanks Jesus for paying a price for this burn. Skin be healed in Jesus’ name." It was cool. I actually missed my stop on the elevator because I was praying, so I had to go back down. No big deal. Anyway, they said that was really nice and thanked me. I didn’t really ask her if she felt better but am believing she was healed. I was hoping to see her the next morning and wanted to ask how her skin/hand was but didn’t see her, but am believing she is well now and knows that Jesus healed her.

Roaring Like A Lion

Leave a comment

So I had this dream where my husband and I were praying for people on the street and I saw demons in this one lady. I could see them in her eyes. I began praying them out and I started roaring like a lion in her face until my roar literally sounded like a lion’s. There was fear in her eyes. The demons were scared.

I never got to finish the dream to see if they left her or not but I do know that we have authority in us through Christ. Instead of being scared of the demonic realm, realize that Christ lives in us, and demons fear us if we understand that, because they fear Him who has overcome the world! Be the lion, not a timid mouse. Hallelujah!

This dream just so happens to go with the conviction on my heart to pray for the demonically possessed, it is just something I feel that I need to grow in more.

“For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. He is the head over every power and authority.” — Colossians 2:9-10
