I wrote "The Healing Desert" as a testimony of my journey of faith through the desert of my survival of cancer and the miracle I received during my treatment. It is a testimony of deep faith that helped me endure through my life's journey with my husband who suffered with cancer for twenty years. It recounts the moving story of my daughter who was pregnant with twins and almost died because of a brain tumor, which was discovered at five months. This was the hardest test of my faith.
The many trials and sorrows that came my way caused me to hold on to my faith and my life experiences took me down pathways of pain. Sorrow, fears and uncertainties. I learnt how to trust, to wait, to surrender and believe even when to believe was the hardest thing to do.
Too often we are crushed, broken and spilled out, and we never understand why it's all happening. Why do I have to suffer so much? Why do I always have to carry a burden? I wrote "The Healing Desert" to show you how to develop your trust and Faith in the Lord and how He is going to bring about positive change in your life.
Do you really know and understand God's love for you? It's a message of hope and the remembrance that "we are not in control of our lives, nor are we masters of the university" My desire is that the message of this book will restore faith and courage to all who feel that in the darkness there is no light. Many have turned to finding consolation in addiction and haven even taken their lives because of hopelessness and despair.
We are terrified of the desert wildness and darkness. We are terrified and see no way out, but it's in the desert we are made whole and healed. Never give up and know that God carries you in the palm of His hands and it's in your weakness you are made strong.
People no longer depend on God and the marketing trend of the world focuses on power and outward beauty, rather than inner beauty. Society seldom accepts us, unless we are powerful, successful, or beautiful. Loss of self esteem and insecurities are the root causes of hopelessness and discouragement. "The Healing Desert In The Sands of Time" is a legacy of Hope, Love and Light and a message to the world of Surrender, Trust and faith.
In "The Healing Desert" you will also read of my grandchild who is a special needs child. The proceeds of my book will go towards the establishment of a desperately needed Special Needs Clinic in Trinidad and Tobago.
With His power He has saved me and can save us all- just believe.
