For years in the church, I have jumped and raised my hands to fire-filled messages about God's healing power. As a pastor, I have preached uplifting sermons and spoke of God's power; however, I was challenged in my faith when I was diagnosed with lupus. I asked myself how this could be, and, "Why me?" Through my chronic disease, I learned the true meaning of healing. My diagnosis of lupus caused me to stand "naked-bald" before the Lord . . . withholding nothing and receiving everything.
