Faith, In the English language it means to believe 100 precent. It doesn’t mean, 99 precent, possibly, probably or maybe. With that being said, I believed in Faith that Michael was going to have a full recovery. I prayed in Faith that he would have the renewed body of a fifty year old. God offered Michael a better deal. Michael body died on 4/3/21 just like a count down 4,3,2,1. Michael would be upset with me if I didn’t share the full story. Michael contacted me early the morning of 3/31/21. He told me, I made it and I’m ok. Well, I busted out in tears for 15 or 20 minutes. As I thought to myself he is gonna get that miracle (renewed body of a fifty year old) in the near future. That’s not what Michael meant at all. I have come to understand he wasn’t in that struggling body at UAB anymore. God must have called Michael and said your Brother will not shut up and he believes in Faith about your recovery. God said Michael what do you want. The renewed body of a 50 year old or do you want Paradise.
