2 – How’d She Get Here? ? ?

Lisa’s Miracle Site has been set up in hopes you will be blessed and inspired at the day to day miracles God has and is doing in her.

.

The actual diagnosis of cancer came on Friday, March 4, 2011. The doctor that spoke that diagnosis apologized for having to tell her that kind of news. Lisa’s response was “I’m a believer so either way it’s going to be ok.” He told her he too believed and would she like him to pray with her. Of course, she said “Yes” and he took her hands and prayed. Not a “God help her please” prayer, which would have been good, but calling on the Father, Son and Holy Spirit prayer. She was blessed by those moments and had no doubt God was in the midst of whatever was going to happen from that point on!

.

On Monday, the pain she was experiencing became so intense we took her to the ER where they found she was having a kidney stone problem. The cat scan they took showed the stone had passed from the kidney into the ureter tube but was gone! Disappeared. She had not passed it but there was evidence on the scan that it had passed through the tube. So? Another assurance from the Lord of His presence and mercy.

.

On Wednesday, March 11, she went to an Oncologist who confirmed the diagnosis of stage three cervical cancer. He set up a PET scan for that Friday. By that time the tumor had grown to a size it was pressing on the kidney where it could not drain and the scan showed it had “exploded” (the doctor’s words) and urine was pouring into the abdominal cavity, which is why she was still in so much pain. She was admitted into the hospital where she stayed for three days.

.

The Urologist said, in 11 years of practice, he had never seen a kidney explode that did not shrivel up and die. That is what they do. Not hers! It continued to function, perfectly through the whole kidney crisis. Ever doctor that came in said they had never seen that happen before. They were amazed; the nurses proclaimed over and over, “Its a miracle!”

.

She began five weeks of daily radiation and once a week chemo during that time on Tuesday, March 15, 2011.

From the first time she heard the words “you have cancer” she has been in tremendous peace. Not once has she wavered from being immersed in His care. She hasn’t lamented, even once, had a “why me” attitude. She has been the stalwart of strength through the Lord.

.

All of us that have been honored to walk with her through this have been changed. You really can’t be around someone walking “with” God through something like this without being changed. It challenges your own mode of how you walk day by day. And, I don’t think you can just waltz into this kind of trust with God at the sound of those words. You have to be in a relationship with Him to know that you can trust him.

.

I will say, I went through some conniptions with the Lord when I heard these words about Lisa. I finally said, “I don’t want to be the one that is begging you for healing, I want to be with those that KNOW you have already done it. I want to be reaching into glory to pull this miracle out of Your hands into her body.” Many of you were already there. I wasn’t. I am now!

.

We pray you will be blessed through this blog. Thanks for visiting and come back often.

Have a wonderful day celebrating the you God is creating you to be!

    Lisa,
    We are praying for you. After watching Rob’s mom (from here to Indy) struggling with such grace and the Lord healing her, we have such faith for your recovery! We love you and miss seeing you. It was difficult to look over at the coffee cart during this April conference until I realized that I could use it as a more frequent reminder to pray for you instead of feeling sorry for myself that things weren’t “normal”. I will see you again on camera as well! I hope to serve with you there soon.
    Love to you!
