I'm approved!!

"Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen."  Ephesians 3:20-21

If you need a Monday pick-me-up, I've got a great one for you. At 8:30am, I received a call from MDA letting me know my insurance had approved all five stereotactic radiation treatments!! Tears of thanksgiving almost choked my voice as I tried to tell the MDA representative thank you for letting me know. The poor gal didn't know what to do with me, I told her the news had made my day and thank you for letting me know so quickly. After I hung up, my immediate response was to raise my hands in praise to the Father crying out, "Thank you Lord! Thank you Lord!" We asked you to pray the approval would come through by Monday and the Lord didn't disappoint.

Thank you mighty prayer warriors for asking and believing He would do this. Boy, did He!! This was a mountain indeed, and He moved it. We are singing His praise with great thanksgiving in our hearts. Now - on to the mountain of cancer in my body - please move it, Lord. Destroy it now and forevermore!! Show it it is no match for the God of "immeasurably abundant more than we could ever ask or imagine."

- Stereotactic radiation on my T2 vertebrae begins today at 1:30pm. (Each treatment will begin at this time throughout the week.) Please pray for wisdom and precision for Dr. Brown, the physicists and technicians involved. Pray the equipment would be complication-free.
- Please pray the Lord would still my heart, my body and my mind as I lay on the treatment table for approximately two hours. The pain in my lower back continues to intensify, so I pray I can keep my focus on Him and not the pain.
- Pray that each treatment would be highly effective in erradicating the cancer from my T2, L2 & hip/pelvis as well as my body forever.
- Pray for minimal to no side effects from this radiation.
- Pray for continued divine encounters at MDA. I've already had two very special conversations here today where I could share of my hope in Christ.


  1. HOORAY! Thank you for always sharing these specific answers to our prayers; seeing God's hand at work is such a challenge and encouragement to my prayer life. Praying for you NOW as you're in treatment!

  4. Tears of thanksgiving and joy as I read the title of your update! God is so good; He never disappoints; His ways are not our ways; and His timing is always perfect. We continue to pray daily for you, Kelsey, as you walk this journey.

  6. Happy Birthday, Kelsey
    I'm praying that today is the day the Lord chooses to perform a complete healing to your body. Paul writes in Philippians 4:13 that we can do everything through him who gives us strength. He earlier writes in verses 6 and 7 that when we bring everything to him by prayer and thanksgiving that the peace of God which transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. So my birthday wish to you is a really big one--complete healing today, strength, and peace. God bless you and your precious family. Love, Sharon
