There are so many things in this world that we must face every day, our trials and tribulations make us stronger and wiser, but those that have faith and believe in God, understand that although we might feel alone at times, God is always there to guide us.
I expierienced a miracle last year with my mother. My mother, Peggy Avalos, is the manager for Meals on Wheels at . She was diagnosed with leukemia in 2009, but quickly went into remission, untill last year when she got very ill and ended up in the hospital. Lab reports were inconsistant with her diagnosis and nothing was making sense anymore. She recieved blood transfusions and had a bone marrow biopsy, and we even went to Stanford to get answers: "Why was she so sick"? "Why isn't she getting better"? "Why doesn't anyone have answers"?
But my biggest question:"Why is God allowing this to happen? My mother has so much faith in you, and still you allow her to suffer." I started to question God and question my faith. It was the longest and most painful 10 months I had ever expierienced, but God pulled us through. My mother is in remission once again and God has opened up my heart and mind, and I truly believe that our expierience was God's way of showing me just how powerful He is and how powerful prayer is.
I never lost faith, but I did question it. There was no medical explanation to my mother's case. Even the specialists couldn't explain how my mothers health could change so dramaticly. But I had an answer. My mother is a miracle! God is Great!
My mother and I started to attend service at Watsonville Victory Outreach on Sundays at 10 a.m. We love going to hear Pastor Gerry and Sister Alma. It is a very unique place of worship. I have never felt so comfortable in a Church setting as I do at Victory Outreach. Come and see for yourself. Contact me for more info by leaving your email in the comments here.
