One week later, Kimberly had stopped going to church since when she had this tumor when surrounded by people who pretended like everything is fine but deep down in her heart she knew what was bothering her, sometimes she felt like God has forsaken her and like she regularly studied the Bible everything was shimmering just like a light. she decided to make the family happy, cleaning the house and mopping the floor Melissa, and Martha it bothered so when the saw the princess of the house wanting to help them cleaning
she forcely got the broom.
Were shocked to see Kimberly helping them, the maids tried to stop her but she insisted ”I will manage ! ” an m I, not a person also, we are all equal in the eyes of God, stop treating me like a princess I can do this also ”when Olivia saw the daughter mopping on the floor, she yelled ” honey you know that you are not feeling well ”
Kimberly ” mom an m fine nothing is wrong with me, just cause of the sickness does not mean I can do anything, ”
Olivia yelled! at the maids Melissa and Martha, how could you let her be working when you know she is not feeling well, ”
Melissa replied ”she insisted we tried stopping her but to no avail.
Olivia ” stop mooping now and go back to your room, ”
Upon saying that Kimberly was topsy-turvy and went.
Olivia ”apologized to the maid ” I know its not your fault but listen an m sorry, I hope you can understand me its just my daughter is going through a lot now days
the maids replied, ” we understand, we know what you are going through right now its fine. ”
Upon saying that a bell rang, Olivia went and opened the door, she was astonished, it was pastor Maxwell Bolton and their wife Chloe Bolton, Olivia welcomed them into the house, it was fabulous cause it was a long since they had visited.
Olivia ”you are very welcome, you can have a seat, ”
Pastor Bolton asked ” where is your daughter Kimberly ? ” it has been ages since I saw her at church.
Olivia called Melissa and when she came, Olivia tell Kimberly that our very own pastor Bolton is there.When pastor Bolton heard this he chuckled it was amazing.
Kimberly came she greeted the pastor and the wife and she Seat on the couch, the pastor ”why have you not been to church the past couple of days ? ” it has bothered us as the church cause you are one of our stronger members in the church and the childrens you teach misses you a lot they want you, every time its Sabbath they complain.
Kimberly replied ” I know I also miss church but the problem an m facing Pastor has made me weak I feel like God has forsaken me, an m suffering from a Cancerous tumor pastor, I feel helpless and the doctor told me that I will die soon, which is so painful. the pastor nodded looked at her a bit and asked her where is your faith ? ” the pastor got the Bible from his bag was colored black, and he opened the Bible
and started reading, Job 22:21-26
”Now acquaint yourself with Him, and be at peace; Thereby good will come to you.
22 Receive, please, instruction from His mouth, And lay up His words in your heart.
23 If you return to the Almighty, you will be built up; You will remove iniquity far from your tents.
24 Then you will lay your gold in the dust, And the gold of Ophir among the stones of the brooks.
25 Yes, the Almighty will be your gold And your precious silver;
26 For then you will have your delight in the Almighty, And lift your face to God.
Upon finishing reading he started telling Kimberly ” that you have abandoned God.
when he had finished reading,no matter what we face in life God is there for us ,if we believe in him. God waits for you to communicate with Him. You have instant, direct access to God. God loves mankind so much, and in a very special sense His children, that He has made Himself available to you at all times. ”
Kimberly ” anyway a m going to die soon , it feel God wants me to die nothing I can do about it , ”
pastor Maxwell ” sometime God brings us problems so that we draws near to him ,he started reading the Bible again
James 13 ” Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms.
14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.
15 And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.
I do believe that God heals, but I also believe that healing is not always the only path that He chooses for us. Sometimes His perfect plan for our lives is to allow us to suffer and experience disease, illness, and hardship. The reason for this is that He can often teach us things through suffering that we would never be able to learn through a book or seminar, or through comfort and prosperity.
Paul had a problem with his eyesight that God never healed. When Timothy was sick, Paul told him to drink wine (not go to a healing service). The Lazaruswho was raised from the dead eventually died later. Paul says that he had a thorn in the flesh which he prayed for God to remove over and over again, but God never removed it. Job suffered because God had a whole bigger purpose for him than mere comfort on this planet. And Jobs suffering was not the result of a lack of faith.
Some of the greatest blessings in this world come from Gods power in the midst of trials. God changes us, molds us, strengthens us, and builds us through hardship. And there is nothing like the experience of being comforted by God alone in that dark hour.
Kimberly asked ”so God is letting me suffer , pastor Maxwell replied ” God is love and can let you suffer the main reason why people endure pain is cause we have abandoned God,if we believe in him ,he said send the comforter thats the holy Spirit whenever we are in pain ,we will have peace cause the fruit of the holy Spirit is love. ”
Kimberly asked ” what should I do cause I don have peace a m always troubled ? ”
Pastor Maxwell ” believe in God that nothing is impossible to him, Just like Jesus healed the blind man so believe from today that he will remove the tumor from you ,if you believe and trust it will go soon,I want you Kimberly to testify in church one day, how amazing God can change your life and come back to church , your home where you belong. ”
When Kimberly heard this she was pleased and thanked Pastor Maxwell ,she promised to change and come back to church to witness the glory of God and never give up cause he is always with us.
Upon having this conversation pastor Maxwell and his wife Chloe Bolton , went off and encouraged every one to pray and focus on God.
