Disappearing Mass

Leave a comment

4 years ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I went the normal route of diagnosis, tests, and treatment. I have no doubt God walked with me every step. I remember a time I cried out to him when I didn’t think I could go another day. A year ago I told my Drs that there was something not right. They checked and said it was just scar tissue. Two months ago we found a lump/mass. I had the routine mammo and it didn’t show anything abnormal. I went to my next appt and the surgeon agreed there was definitely a lump/mass .He relooked at the mammo and showed us where this was seen if he enlarged the picture. We chose to have it removed and biopsied. My appointment was scheduled for October 7th. We only told those closest to us because I didn’t want sympathy. All through we prayed. Sunday when I was getting ready for church I checked and it was there…another reminder that here we go again. When I walked into church I asked for a few of my closest ladies to pray for me. I knew what to expect with another bad biopsy but I personally felt I was on the verge of a melt down. Those ladies laid hands on me and prayed. Tuesday morning I got ready to go for the surgery and I felt for the lump. I couldn’t find it. I asked my husband to look and he couldn’t find it . We went to the doctor’s. The nurses starting prepping me for surgery and I asked to speak to the surgeon. The nurses asked what was wrong. I told them I couldn’t feel a lump/mass. They checked and said they didn’t feel it either. They called the surgeon…he felt and said well we are not doing surgery today. There is nothing to biopsy. He told the nurse that 10 days prior I had a lump and he showed her by putting his fingers about an inch apart. One of the nurses said wow…can you believe that? I told her I believe a baby was born from a virgin…I can believe this too. Praise God that no matter what…he walks with us….gives us comfort through the sad times…..and gives healing even when all we asked for was peace.

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!

Even and Straight

WOW!!! This is unbelievable!! (hold on to your seats)! So I went to the church today to break down the sanctuary after Wednesday’s prayer time for Mickey. Adam opened the door for Aubree and I to get in and he proceeded to show me a video on his phone of him healing his son Breckin. Apparently one of his legs was shorter than the other. On the video, I actually saw his leg move out a bit!! I proceeded to tell him I have the same problem due to my scoliosis, that one of my legs was shorter that the other (I have a 19 degree curve in my spine, they do major surgery at 22-23 degrees). I’ve had many problems due to this scoliosis, including muscles spasms, etc. At times it gets pretty painful and I have to take Vicodin, an addictive prescription drug to get any relief!!! I am in recovery from being an alcoholic, so these meds are horrible for me. When I take them I can 99% know an alcohol relapse will be coming shortly. (These meds trick my brain into thinking I’m drinking). So Adam says, "Let’s go pray for that right now." So we did, and I believe he has it on video. I did feel a sensation in my right hip and warmth in my leg!!! At the end of the prayer, he said my legs were now even!!!! Very cool, but it doesn’t stop there. I proceeded to take my jacket off and show him how bad my scoliosis was and how my shoulder dipped!! He saw it and then prayed for my spine to straighten up, several times!!!! So freaky I felt my upper body start to shift, like I began to lean to the left, except I wasn’t leaning or moving!!!! DOULBE WOW!!!! My spine straightened up at that very moment!!!! I was trippin’ out, wondering what to do with all of this! He told me to just go and praise and thank GOD, so I did. I got to share this with a few people who were hanging around the church. I kept looking in the mirror checking to make sure I was still staying straight. Adam came and checked on me and looked at my shoulders. "YEP", he said, “They’re straight”!!! We were both excited about the miracle God just did.So I’m crying, happy and freaking out all at once. I kept asking Danielle if I was still straight!!! I don’t even know what to say, I’m still in a daze. Can’t wait to get my back x-rayed again!!! GOD is so awesome and is so "for me"! Completely amazing, a miracle right in front of me and he used me. God is good guys, and he wants to do this for all of us. Open up to him, get close to him and keep the faith, in fact ask for an increase in faith!! Thanks for listening and GOD bless!!!

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!

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.
