SID: Now LaDonna, down to 89 pounds, nine surgeries in 90 days, colon dead, 10th surgery, remove her colon, just on a doctor’s error. But she knew she had to do our television show. She does it before all this, it actually started before. But before it got as bad as it did, she did our TV show. She’s in the hospital. She’s battling the spirit of Death. She’s almost giving up, really. You did reach a point where it would have been very easy for you to give up.
LADONNA: It would have been very easy. I came very close to turning to my son who was in the room and saying, “Take me to hospice. I’m tired of fighting.”
SID: And that’s what happens to a lot of believers. They get worn out and tired just as victory is almost there. But she didn’t know, she did the show because God knew she would do the show, because God knew she would need it at this point in her life. We serve such a marvelous, wonderful God. So she’s in the hospital dying, starving to death and her nurse comes in and turns on the television show she did with us. It just happened to be playing while she’s in the hospital. And what happened?
LADONNA: The nurse is standing there crying as she sees my life and I’m, of course, I’m watching this and I’m puzzled. I’m very drugged at this point, very puzzled. The enemy is saying, “You’re going to die. Jesus doesn’t love you like he does everybody else. You won’t get healed. Those you prayed for, you had faith for them, but you don’t have faith for this. You’re not going to make it.” But I watched the show and immediately as the show was playing, emails started coming in on my little Smart Phone, little bells, ding, ding, ding, ding, ding. And I started looking and people from all over the world are emailing me, “I saw you on the Sid Roth show, pray for me, my mom is dying. Pray for me.”
SID: You’re dying and you’re praying for others.
LADONNA: “Pray for me. The doctor just said I have cancer. I have 30 days to live. Pray for me. Please help me. Where are you going to be next? Will you come to my church?”
SID: If they only knew.
LADONNA: Yes. So I started focusing on helping others again and I started praying for them. I kept getting weaker and weaker, but I held on to my destiny. I picked back up because of It’s Supernatural.
SID: Do you, I mean, can you see the hand of God? That same hand of God that was on LaDonna is on you. It’s just you don’t know it. My Bible says, “He has every hair,” and I need them all, “He has every hair on my head numbered. Not two sparrows fall to the ground without him personally being aware of it.” And how much more value are you than the sparrow? Now LaDonna, there is an old song that means a lot to you, “Leaning on the Everlasting Arms”. Tell me about that song.
LADONNA: As I got weaker, I realized that I was learning to pull my strength from Him. Something was pulling strength from my natural body, but spiritually I learned to lean on Him. The Apostle Paul told us about that in the Word of God that when I’m weak He’s strong. That is what that song means to me.
SID: You know, we’re just human.
SID: But how strong is God? LaDonna, if you would go to the music set and I’m going to tell you something, it’s time for you to stop trusting in your own natural strength and start trusting in the strength of the Creator of the universe, the same power that rose Messiah Jesus from the dead dwells in you. Trusting in the everlasting arms.
