He’s taken some hits, plenty of them. Born on the floor of an abandoned building near Miami to a mother who didn’t want him, raised poor and hungry, labeled mentally retarded in school… he’s worked hard to get somewhere. He’s worked real hard.
Fifteen years ago, he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. He wouldn’t accept the doctor’s prognosis of “terminal.” Rather, Les said that the doctor’s ability to help him had terminated. He’s a survivor.
But now the word is that the cancer has spread beyond his prostate, into his back and other parts of his body. The situation looks grim from the outside. Friends and family are gathering around him. Has he been hit too hard this time?
What would you do, given that same medical diagnosis? Have you ever thought about it? What if the doctor said you were on the way out? Would you quit your job and travel? Would you go on the bender to end all benders? Would you cash in your savings and try to do everything you wish you would have done earlier? What would you do?
If you want to know what Les Brown is doing about it, tune in to his live radio talk show on KFWB, Los Angeles. He’s there every weekday from 2-4 p.m., Pacific Time. He’s not moaning about his condition, though. He’s doing what he’s always done–reaching out to help others. Give him a call. He’s listening.
If I had heard this news about any other person, I might be shopping for flowers. But Les Brown is no quitter, and I’m not quitting on him. Les says that there are times when the odds seem so stacked against us that we need to fall back to the position that is always solid: It is possible. And with God, all things are possible.
I’ve been praying for Les every day. I’ve been speaking health and restoration his way. Would you join me in that pursuit? Would you?
Here’s the intention that I and several other folks have been claiming for ourselves and for Les. Sit with it. It is powerful…
The healing power and love of God flows through every cell, bone, blood vessel, muscle, and organ in my body; restoring, renewing, and revitalizing me to wholeness, wellness, and complete health as God created me.
It ain’t over until it’s over… and it ain’t over. It ain’t never going to be over. Les Brown is alive and well.
That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.
