The Good News

Update

In the second video, released on October 22, 2021 Max Lucado shared that the measurement of his aneurysm has diminished! He is quick to give credit to a good God who is keeping his hand of grace upon Max’s aneurysm.

Original Post

Pastor and best-selling author Max Lucado recently announced his diagnosis of an ascending aortic aneurysm. Join Max in praying that the Lord’s perfect will be done. Through this serious health concern, Max continues to inspire us to trust in God in all circumstances. This letter from maxlucado.com/health beautifully displays his outlook and faith.

A Letter from Max

Dear Friends,

I want to take a moment to share with you some personal medical news. Recently I was diagnosed with an ascending aortic aneurysm. Because this is a serious condition, I wanted you to hear from me personally.

Though surgery is a possibility, none is planned at the moment. The current strategy is to wait, watch, and pray that the aneurysm doesn’t increase any further in size. I am maintaining my normal routines and commitments; my ministry is undisturbed by this news.

Here’s the good news: I feel fine. I am under the care of an outstanding medical team, and most of all, I am in the hands of a good God.

If there is other news to share, we will post updates at MaxLucado.com.

For now, please know that I am fully trusting our heavenly Father. I am grateful for your prayers for me and for my family.

God bless you, Max

Other ways you can pray for Max Lucado:

– Strength to continue the daily needs of his ministry.

– God’s guidance in health decisions.

– Knowing peace in the sovereignty of God for Max and his family.

My husband also had a 5.3 aneurysm on the ascending aorta. Surgery was not an option in his case because he had already had 2 open heart surgeries. In June he had a heart attack. As normal procedure they did a cardiac catheterization. It showed there had been no damage from the attack but most of all the report said there was not an aneurysm on the ascending aorta. Aneurysms do not just go away on their own. I had been praying for the aneurysm to go away. I believe that God healed that aneurysm that day and I will… Read more »

Praying for you Max! My aunt is facing the same thing. Unfortunately for at this time surgery is not an option. We are believing God for her and for you and with you. She could use prayers especially since she is not a believer at this time. Love and prayers fo you Max!

God bless and keep you safe under His feathers. I always am reminded of “In The Grip of Grace” that I read once years ago that you wrote. I needed it so bad. I was on a church Board that preached little about the grace of God. I read the inside jacket that you wrote about the cloak at one of our ladies board meetings. I thought it was great. They sat there and just looked at me. 💟✝️

My son at the age of 37 years old had surgery from this 4 years ago as well. He was fortunate to have felt in his spirit something was wrong. He went to ER and the kept him until they had an opening for surgery . his was only a 4cm, but on smart doctor really look at the CT scan and saw how thin his aerobic wall was where the aneurysm was located. They said one more jog and he would have collapsed and died. I too have been diagnosed at a 4.5cm with an ascending aerobic aneurysm in… Read more »

Since it is a vascular condition, let me say this: I was able to reverse varicose veins by adding Grape Seed Extract to my daily vitamins and minerals…I am no longer wearing the hose as my veins have gone from the size of my thumb to half the width of my little finger. I know God expects us to do everything we can to be ready for His intervention. God bless you and I am praying for all hands involved in your healing process.

“In the Grip of His Grace,” in my personal home library for years, was partial inspiration for the title of my latest book “Boosting Joy: In The Grips of My Alzheimer’s Caregiver Journey.” I know you are a man of faith; God’s grace is sufficient. 🙏🏽
