Have you ever received news that was so scary it left you speechless? Thinking I had bronchitis or pneumonia, I was not prepared to hear the words, "You are in heart failure." As a 31-year-old woman, wanting nothing more than to be a mother, I was left contemplating what my future would look like - if I had a future. My doctors said my greatest chance of survival would be a heart transplant. God was gently teaching me to trust Him despite how physically unbearable life became. Over time, I began feeling distant from God's love, especially preceding my first open-heart surgery. But each time I cried out to God and searched His scriptures, I was reminded that He cares deeply for all who suffer. My prayers began to change from a daily plea for healing to a surrender of my future to His will. After surrendering fully to God's will, I had a moment of overwhelming love from my heavenly Father in which I felt His arms reach down and hold me with unimaginable love and peace. I am eternally grateful for the lesson I was reminded of first-hand: MIRACLES DO STILL HAPPEN Through the heart-felt sharing of my testimony and true-to-life evidence of God's healing hand, I pray that Though My Heart and Flesh May Fail will motivate readers to put their faith and future in the hands of their divine Healer.
