Will the rich get into heaven? This is what Jesus has to say about it. And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?
And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments. He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,
Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?
Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.
But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.
Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.
And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?
But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
With GOD all things are possible
Jesus’ words tell us that nothing is impossible with GOD and all things are possible with GOD. So if you find yourself in a tight spot .. don’t fret. Just exercise those knees and say, ‘Thank you LORD for helping me, because I know that nothing is impossible with Thee,’
GOD hears prayer. It is as simple as that. After I ruptured my appendix and the surgeons decided not to operate .. all I wanted to do was get home to my girls. I thought if I must die, I will die at home. But I decided that, if it was up to me, this was not an option and enlisted GOD’s help.
Today is the official launch day of my book ‘My Story of Survival.’ I wanted to share with my readers what it means for me to believe in The Most High. I want you to know that whatever situation you find yourself in; GOD hears prayer. And not only that, but He answers too.
Today I’ll print up the last excerpt of my book, for now. You will be able to download my book for FREE from Amazon on December 15, 16 and 17 in 2015. Please share this link with anyone who may benefit from my story or my diet.
My message is, don’t give up! Trust the LORD! If there are answers out there for me, there will be for you too. May GOD bless you and yours richly with abundant health always!
EXCERPT FROM MY STORY OF SURVIVAL
GOD hears Prayers
Alleluia, Praise God, he heard our prayers, got me out of the hospital and into the care of my girls, who did an awesome job at keeping me going. It took the kids around a year to nurse me back to being able to simply get up from bed.
The hospital had sent me home with boxes of antibiotics to which I was intolerant, and with every breath I managed to take, I felt and looked as if it were going to be my last.
The surgeons had told me, “Come back when you’re better and we’ll take your appendix out.”
The kids phoned around and located a wonderful naturopath who did a home visit and prescribed the homeopathic remedy Pyrogen and Cleavers herb. These remedies, together with loads of TLC and mustard seed-sized faith, proved to be a lifesaver.
When I came out of hospital mid-2008 after rupturing my appendix, I could only suck slivers of ice for quite a while. I couldn’t drink, I couldn’t eat, and there was nothing I could keep down, not even water, unless it had been frozen and shaved.
The healthy diet I had been on of fresh, raw, organic vegs and fruit now caused me massive cramps and vomiting. After weeks, I was able to hold down some soups. After months passed, we discovered that I was unable to tolerate any kind of grain, including rice, or any kind of flour, meat, tofu, tempeh, cheeses (and I do like cheese), eggs, and so on. After a while, we figured out what I could tolerate.
In the end we came up with a ten-ingredient-diet which sustained me for a period of five years. Five ingredients only for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Below I show an example of how I arrived at the ten ingredient diet.
Guidance through prayer
Trial and error and oodles of faith.
It is true, when I said earlier that the diet came about 100% by trial and error. What is also true is that I received a lot of guidance with prayer. The problem was that I hadn’t exercised my knees much, and even though I received wonderful responses to my prayers, my follow-up left a lot to be desired.
For instance, one night I went to sleep asking for a solution to the infections that seemed to plague me non-stop. I woke up in the middle of the night thinking, ‘God says E, 6 times 3.’ Nice little rhyme, easy to remember, and a little intriguing. Naturally, I didn’t recall it in the morning and it was not till weeks later that this prompting popped back into my mind.
Dreams and prayers
At breakfast one day we were discussing dreams and prayers. Propped up against my pillows whilst chewing my bit of apple, I suddenly remembered the intense prayer for a solution to the infections, and just as I was about to open my mouth to say that I was still waiting for an answer, I remembered the little rhyme. Call me cotton brain if you like, but this happened a lot to me. I would intensely pray for a solution and completely miss the answer for weeks, if not months, on end.
I was not only dopey, but also untrained and unfamiliar with prayers being answered so readily and easily. I would often get an answer and not act upon it for quite a while.
Once I remembered the little rhyme I said it out loud, “God Says E, 6 times 3.” What does that mean girls? I looked around, and next to me on my bedside table was an orange little bottle of Goldenseal extract. Ha! (G)olden(S)eal (E)xtract. Tada!
Now you probably wonder why this was such a revelation, because obviously, if this bottle was on my bedside table I was already taking this supplement? Well, no. I tried, but hadn’t been able to take it because every time I took a dose I would end up with a massive migraine.
Goldenseal extract is sometimes prescribed to help with the germ E coli, which of course had come into play with the septicaemia. It may have been mentioned to me by the friendly homeopath, I cannot remember, and we may have ordered it from Iherb. But the thing was that this supplement had been of no use to me because I was not able to tolerate it … till the answer to my prayer.
Once I remembered the little rhyme of ‘God Says E, 6 times 3,’ I decided to ignore the dosage instructions on the bottle, which was way more than I could tolerate, and took 3 drops at a time, 6 times a day. It did not take very long after this for me to be able to sit up more in bed without feeling nauseous and dizzy. Till that stage I had mainly been lying in bed not doing much of anything in particular because sitting up had been too much of an effort to me.
*** USEFUL FACT *** Goldenseal’s ability as a “natural antibiotic” has given this herb a great reputation in the herbal lore. Digestive secretions in the stomach are increased by taking the remedies made from the goldenseal. The remedy also has an astringent action on the mucous membranes lining the gut; this checks the spread of inflammation in the area at the same time. Do not use for prolonged period of time. See NOTES.
Little by little
And so little by little, step by step, I recovered eetsy weenie tiny bits at a time. This particular answer to a prayer taught me to ignore the dosages given on bottles because they were always too large for me. I learned to take things one drop at a time, even to the point where I would put one drop on my wrist and wait for a couple of days to see if there was a reaction, and after this maybe have a drop in a glass of water and wait to see if there was a reaction, and so on.
I had already learned that extracts were the way to go for me because they get absorbed easier and can be purchased without any additives. But many of these extracts were simply too potent for me to handle … till I learned to take it really easy. Literally one drop at a time.
It was in the same way that the trial and error with the diet came about. Trying out one bite at a time. Literally take one bite of carrot and wait for a day or so to see if there was a negative reaction. I know this sounds crazy, and indeed my life was pretty crazy. Crazy good, I am still breathing! And I am still around!
