I seldom talk about myself because I feel I am modest and it's not necessary to share my personal endeavors. Maybe it's because underneath this layer of thick skin lies a shy and timid girl.  Yet, my heart was driven to share this miracle. To share how I used my Faith and enabled myself to conquer the hard lessons learned, and the good things that have been won, that maybe in sharing this, I may be able to upton someone else to take hold of their own Faith.

Now, I have been told and I shall paraphrase, "That Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen."  Now, I am no Bible scholar and it did take me a few minutes to understand this magnificent phrase. But Lord, how I quickly forgot how many times my mother have said, Faith is something that you can't buy, no one can give it to you, nor can you place it on a shelf for the times when  you need it. Faith she says, stays within you forever, it's rooted in your soul, you just have to perfect it every now and then. And how true she was. 

I say that, to say this, Faith is something that is within you, an inner metaphor of God's special presence living inside of you, knowing that you know, you know without any shadow of doubt, any preservation, that if you stand firm, and wait, and hold onto your Faith, you can leap through all obstacles that may come your way, because HE lives within you.

To make a long story short, a year ago, I felt a lump on my breast as big as day, the first thought that came to my mind was "CANCER",  I prayed and I cried. I went to the doctor and took multiple tests...some that had to be repeated as much as 7 times. When I awoke one late night, I decided to go down-stairs and watch TV, something I seldom do, while flicking through the channels I tuned into TBN, and saw Juanita Bynum (A WOMAN OF GOD'S HEART) preaching. She pointed her finger straight at me, well it seemed as if it was at me and she said, "Those who are watching by television that have Faith will be healed by 12mn."  Now not thinking anything of it, I received it, and went to bed. I never once experienced ny fear, as a matter of fact I thought how quickly I needed to get my affairs and house in order.
When I returned to my primary physician he said, "it must be a miracle" he said the other doctor said, all the tests were negative, they confirmed NOTHING!

So my friend, no matter what you are going through HOLD ONTO YOUR  FAITH AND NEVER GIVE UP.


When your husband want to act silly...Leap

When the children get out of hand...Leap

When your heart has been broken...Leap

When you fail...Leap

When the job don't treat you right...Leap

When your friends forsake you...Leap

When you been diagnosed with an illness or disease...Leap

When the finances are dwindling...Leap

When you're unemployed...Leap

When your told you won't amount to anything...Leap

When the church folks gossip about you...Leap

When you're lonely...Leap

When you need a new car...Leap

When you need deliverance...Leap

Whatever you are going through...don't be discouraged





God Bless You All

"Leaping Through Faith"
Loretta, what an exquisite article you have written here, and the sharing ahh it gripped my heart and made it quiver! Praises to the LORD JESUS and the MOST HIGH he healed YOU!! Yes, yes when you have that faith regardless what else one may not have, but when you have that faith that is all that is needed.
Thank GOD Loretta you have the faith, and had the faith. Faith is one of the most beautiful and inspiring qualities in a heart as a matter of fact it is awesome.
This write is most touching to my heart, I live in faith, I breath in faith~step out in faith. Without doubts and without fears I know, I know.
My heart sings inside because of faith, there have been times one feels...but if I could just touch the hem of the garment...and it is Faith. (Makes me think of that sermon of T. D. Jakes)
Loretta, I know you do too have such faith, it something that can just be felt and I feel that way about you. It has also been a blessing to know you as an author, and to be one blessed enough to get your book.

All the best to you always,
Gwendolyn A. Thomas GATH

Beautiful, and well said. Faith indeed is only a first step. For once you truly believe in God, it’s only a matter of time before you will personally know God. For he already knows and loves you.
