Sorry I am not way great at this blogging thing. My job schedule is just crazy and then life happens and then before you know it it has been a few weeks and I have not blogged.

On my ‘free thoughts’, I have been thinking about people being healed.  Actually it more started after I talked to my beautiful friend Becca Weber.  Becca went to Africa this summer though Iris Ministries, which is a ministry to feed people and share the gospel in Mozambique.  It is led by this incredible woman named Heidi Baker.  More to her later.  Anyways, I asked Becca if she had seen any crazy healing miracles since I have heard that this ministry has risen almost 100 people from the dead.  Becca said that she put her hands on the eyes of a blind boy, and he was healed and could see perfectly.  And one of the students she was working with was risen from the dead.  So then I asked her, even though I already kind of knew, “Why don’t we see those miracles as often in the United States?”  She responded quickly, “We are not desperate for it.”  She went on to explain more interesting things.  She explained how she worked in two different communities in Africa, the village and the bush.  In the village, they had a hospital and doctors, and they did not see as many healing miracles there.  In the bush, nearly every time they prayed for a healing miracle, it happened. This causes me to think a lot, and I have given up because I just don’t know all the ways of God.  I know God does do healing miracles in the United States, and I have been healed once, but still.  For now this teaches me to pray to be more desperate for God.  To better understand better that He is life, and without Him there is no hope.

Below are two youtube videos that I highly recommend watching.  Definitely will get you thinking.  The first one is with Heidi Baker, and a man who was raised from the dead.  He shares his story of what happened.

This other one is some people who were healed in Disneyland.  It is perhaps a little awkward to watch, but I enjoy this one because the people leading act upon why God wants healing miracles to happen.  God releases gifts to bring glory and people to Him.  It is sweet that a greater miracle happened, upon many people getting healed, they more importantly got saved!!
