Brain Tumour Stories

Devotional Treasures

Isle of Skye Bridge & Eilan Ban Lighthouse. https://www.facebook.com/SpectacularScotland

I sought the Lord, and He answered me,
And delivered me from all my fears.
They looked to Him and were radiant,
And their faces will never be ashamed.
This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him
And saved him out of all his troubles.
The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him,
And rescues them.

Psalm 34:4-7 (NASB)

Recently I commented on a post by Jennifer Arimborgo entitled “An Amazing Perspective .” I expressed my gratitude for her wonderul post and shared a bit of my own story in my faith journey with a brain tumour. Jennifer asked me whether I had written any posts about this, which I couldn’t remember if I had. Thus I did a search and found four posts; I was surprised (memory failure is common with brain surgery). I list these stories below. I believe that Father God has a purpose in…

Continuous positivity influences your mindset

Pablito...travelling mentally with you!

In 2014 I fell off a building. 15 metres to my closest encounter with death.

What I feel it actually sparked was a period of intense growth to observe the psychology we are surrounded by each day in our social worlds.

One thing from the moment I opened my eyes in week 3/4 after the accident was having an intense focus on positivity, my interests, my passions and my recovery from that fall.

It wasn’t easy. In no way was it easy. However, part of that positivity was ignoring the negative responses people had towards my accident and particularly the Brain Injury I suffered.

This again was NOT easy.
