What We Focus On, Grows

Let Us Not Limit God!

Sometimes our attention to something can be important, like driving.  No one likes a distracted driver!  Sometimes, however, if we are focusing so much on one thing; we can miss other things or opportunities in our lives.  For a great example of this watch this video at the end of this post. This is the same if we focus on negative things in our lives, whether that be illness, pain, debt, lack, insecurity, worry, regret or un-forgiveness.  We will no doubt see more of it in our lives and be presented with more experiences that confirm our beliefs about it! Why?

Because it is a universal law that what we focus on, think about or worry about actually expands and becomes our reality.  This is why after we finish praying, petitioning and thanking God for what He is doing in our lives; we are to keep our focus on the positive and be at peace.  This is why scripture also states: …And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.  {Philippians 4:7-9}

Too often, after we pray for or about something, we go right back to thinking or worrying about our problem. I have a wonderful story of a very close friend who when given a death sentence, chose to focus on what was “right” and “pure” and “lovely”.   Over 13 years ago, at the age of 25, she was diagnosed suddenly, after a seizure, with a grade 4 cancerous brain tumour and given 18 months to live.  She was pursuing her modeling career in Toronto at the time and this was a devastating blow to her, her family and those around her who loved her. She was told by her doctors that they could cut out most of her tumour, but that there was nothing they could do to save her life because the tumour actually had roots that went down into her brain cavity and were inoperable.

Do you know how she responded?  She told the doctors she wanted the surgery anyway, even though it meant losing her long strands of beautiful hair, her modelling career and could cause irreparable damage to her memory and brain functions.  And then she told them – and us – something else.  She said that this cancer would not take her life, that she wasn’t going to focus on the tumour;  but she would be focusing on her healing and the power of God instead!

She began to eat differently, went to homeopathic doctors, pursued any activity – when she wasn’t feeling sick from the radiation and chemotherapy – that was fun and made her laugh.  She took her focus completely off of the tumour and refused to speak of it or give it any attention!  And do you know what that blasted tumour did?  It grew back – a second time!  And still the doctors told her she was sentenced to death – by their worldly knowledge of cancer – even though almost two years had passed. So, she had it removed again and then she went right back to praying, loving, living and having fun.

In 2002 when Pope John Paul came to Toronto, by miracle or sheer determination of a mutual friend of ours, who had written to ask if our friend could be one of the ones that was blessed by the Pope on his visit, our friend was chosen!  She said, “I’m going to get blessed by the Pope and get my miracle!” She did and John Paul laid his hand upon her head – not knowing that she had a brain tumour at all – and blessed her! That was in the fall of 2002.

By February 2003 – even though her doctors knew in late September, but didn’t want to get her hopes up, if you can imagine – she was told that her tumour, roots and all had completed and miraculously disappeared!  Now, in 2015 my friend is cancer-free, living, loving and still having fun.

Do I think this is possible for everyone?  Yes.  Do I wonder why some get their miracle and others do not?  Yes.  Am I hear to pass judgment on God and what prayers get answered and what ones do not?  No.  What I am here to do is to help heal – emotionally, physically and psychologically whomever God puts in my path by either my teachings, my prayers, or my hands (if that’s how he instructs me) and trust that if HE wants me to share these stories, there has to be a reason.

So what do I believe?  I believe that God does not discriminate and therefore what is “available” to one, is available to all.  I believe that our bodies are great instruments of communication and they are constantly sending messages to our brain and to us.  I believe that if we were to actually love ourselves enough to be at peace – to have full faith – to focus on what IS right in the world and what IS right with us – to stop telling ourselves that we are “broken”  and to focus as Joseph Prince states: “On the 99% of our bodies that is healthy, instead of the 1% that isn’t”, we would see more healings, more transformations in this present day.

Why do I believe this and who told me this?   Jesus did when he said: Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?  {Matthew 6:25} And when he said this: Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. {John 14:12}

My faith in healing is great because I also have two sisters who have overcome the odds of a brain tumour and multiple sclerosis.  What else can I do but write about these miracles – and my belief in scripture’s promises and in healing – even if some are offended or disagree – I put my faith in what God says is possible; not what humans think – and are constantly being told by doctors based on PRESENT day knowledge and medicine – is possible. Remember, mankind once believed the earth was flat and fought to the death to prove they were right!

I believe in miracles.

I believe in the power of the human spirit and our minds – once they are made up!  Maybe this will inspire you too! How our Focus affects what we see:
