FAITH NEWS SERVICE – Possibly the number one life-changing illness that affects us the most, cancer debilitates physical and mental health beyond the cancer itself.*
When Rebecca Gilham found out that her husband, Rick, had cancer, she determined to trust God and discovered many earthly ways Jesus showed them love and support. As they trudged prayerfully on their journey, the cancer grew into a rare, aggressive form of lymphoma. Rick’s chances for survival were in the single digits.
Rebecca says, “I could see that Rick’s body was failing day by day and knew this was not something God did to us.”
A December challenge to read a chapter a day in the book of Luke sent her on a trek through Scripture, where she began to see how Jesus healed. Those He touched, the paralytic man, the blind man, and the woman with the issue of blood received full healing power. Why can’t Jesus do the same for Rick? Rebecca asked herself.
Walking With the Healer: Finding Hope and Encouragement Through the Shadow of Death is a powerful and gentle memoir of one couple’s intense journey through cancer and how a wife’s devoted prayers sought miraculous healing. Readers will be encouraged with biblical passages of Jesus’s healings, providing them strength to find healing in their own lives, perhaps in ways they might not expect.
