How can I be quick? I can’t but I just wanted to let you know I’m still here, still praising The Lord and still standing on God’s promises that, “By His stripes I AM healed!”
So much has happened it’s hard to start. A couple of weeks ago I was giving myself an enema crying and in pain. I told The Lord that this one has to be the last one because I couldn’t take it anymore. Just then the phone rang and it was a pre-recorded call from our church. The church sends out calls to our congregation to let us know what’s going on like prayer requests, reminders about the church picnic, church canceled because of bad weather, etc.
I wasn’t going to even listen but that still small voice (the Holy Spirit ;-)) said to listen. Well, it was a special request for the church body to come together and pray for., … Yes Indeed, ME!
I just sat there and cried! Just at the very moment I needed it, God showed up (He’s always there but this was an ah ha moment). Isn’t that just like Him? He knows what we need and precisely when we need it!
So that week, on Friday night, our church was having a Harp n Bowl service. This service is all about praise and worshipping God. I knew I needed to go and my sisters along with my step-Mom, Barbara (who was visiting up here from Florida) all went. What a glorious time we had!
As I was praising Him, waving my banner, I was free from ALL pain!!!! Yes, I was up front dancing waving my arms and no pain. That was a wonderful night!!!! I’m standing in faith that this will happen more often and soon, it will be a common every moment occurrence!!! :-)
Here’s a picture of Vanessa and I but I have a short video and can’t figure out how to post it, bummer dude!
Bob and I usher at church every other Sunday (or whatever the schedule goes). My part of our ushering is to help serve communion. The congregation come up front, drop their offering and tithe into a basket and we stand with a tray of cups and wafers. This past Sunday morning I got up feeling dizzy and really out of it. Bob thought I shouldn’t serve communion because he was concerned I might fall or something. I talked him into letting me do it but he had Jeremy follow me just in case.
I knew in my heart that I had to do it because I am strong and healed and I don’t want my body to dictate what is going on! Well I have to say that I literally had to clutch the juice cups to my side but I DID IT! I made it and felt quite the accomplishment!!!
Something came over me right then. I know it was joy but an overwhelming feeling of accomplishment I guess flooded my soul that it’s hard to express. I couldn’t hold back the tears and had to go to the restroom to cover up the fact I couldn’t stop crying.
I just praised God that I could serve Him and my friends and it felt so good.
Well, that’s about it for now. I feel bad my posts have been few and far between but praise God I’m able to post and share!
