Miracle Testimony: God Healed My Skin Problem (Possible Cancer) in an Instant

By in Noah's Archives | 0 comments

If you know me very well, you know I have some seemingly insurmountable health challenges. I’ve been praying for healing for some of my health problems for more than two decades. I’ve even had doctors tell me, “Don’t come back to me for this condition. I don’t know what else to do for you.” So, yeah, it’s been a discouraging situation with my health as one thing after another piles on. And they’re not normal things. I have had a chronic (daily) cough for twenty-five years and doctors don’t know what to do. I have two permanently dilated eyes from a rare neurological disease. I have bipolar disorder. That’s just to name a few. And then . . . About a year ago, a crusty raised bump appeared on the back of my shoulder. I didn’t think too much of it but it didn’t go away. Then a second one appeared a few inches away. Could it be skin cancer from the severe sunburns I had when I was young?...

Waking Up: How I Found My Faith by Losing It by Ted Dekker

By in Book Reviews, Grace, Memoir & Testimony | 0 comments

Waking Up How I Found My Faith by Losing It Ted Dekker 2015 27 pages   Author Ted Dekker exposes his struggle for many years to reconcile what he believed about God with the reality he was experiencing. The Bible says God answers prayer, but Dekker felt his prayers were left unanswered. The Bible says to love our enemies, but Christians can’t even get along with each other. The spiritual conflict became a crisis of faith and he began exploring alternative belief systems outside of Christian faith. That’s when he had a spiritual breakthrough. As the NY Times bestselling author sat at his desk one day, he felt God remind him of a simple truth. We are to love others unconditionally. How, then, can we believe God doesn’t love us with the same unconditional love? This is love. This is grace. To know this kind of love and acceptance means we can quit trying to be good enough. As Dekker says,...

Write Your Testimony as a Product Testimonial (Part 2 of 2): Negative Reviews

By in Crazy Grace Blog | 0 comments

If you wrote your testimony as a product testimonial, you may have been honest enough to include some disappointments with God. What do you do if you have partial or completely negative experiences with God? What good is a testimony like that? You might be surprised how God can use that. Everyone is disappointed with God in one way or another. Unanswered prayers top the list, or at least prayers that weren’t answered the way we wanted. Live events that leave us asking “Why?” are also culprits that shake our faith in God at a deep level. And there are matters of timing (God can seem so slow to us), trust (God disappointed me in the past, how can I trust Him now?), and any number of other issues that come up. First, let me say if you are disappointed in God, you are a normal, thinking, feeling individual. It’s okay. God can handle your doubts and fears. You’ve taken the first and biggest...

Write Your Testimony as a Product Testimonial (Part 1 of 2)

By in Crazy Grace Blog | 0 comments

I don’t know why people get so freaked out by the word “testimony” as if they feel theirs isn’t good enough, they might do it wrong, or they don’t have one. Rubbish. Everyone has a testimony and yours is just as valid as anyone else’s. I think the hang-up comes from hearing spectacular testimonies and feeling ours somehow doesn’t measure up. Or perhaps we’ve been told our testimony needs to weave in certain elements of salvation to bring others to Christ. Nonsense. In court a testimony is simply one person’s account of what they saw, heard, and experienced at a particular time and from their point of view. They may not have all the information. They may not have seen everything from their vantage point. But their testimony, taken with others, helps paint a much larger picture of the overall scope of events that took place. On product websites, anyone is free to give their product...

By in Crazy Grace Blog | 0 comments

K.P. Yohannan has been on my radar for more than a decade. He generously gives away books to help Christians enlarge their worldview, their faith in God’s power, and their need to get involved with God’s plan. Among his many books, he loves to give away copies of Revolution in World Missions, his testimony of becoming a missionary, and No Longer a Slumdog, the stories of those whose lives have been changed by Christ in the slums of India. In addition, he offers free ebook editions of many of his books. His ministry, Gospel for Asia, ministers to the lost and hopeless people of South Asia by bringing them physical, practical, and spiritual aid. Although he was born in India, K.P. Yohannan came to the United States for theological training, during which time he discovered the power of materialism. Listen as he describes how he struggled with a desire to look good and have...
