May Your wonders never cease Jesus!!
As I look at my family in those wonders-and praise You. I look back at all my trials from before, and praise You. As for I wouldn't even know who YOU ARE!! Our Savior, the Lamb of God, Bread of Life, Emmanuel, Holy One, The Way, Advocate, Lord of Lords, King of Kings, Cornerstone, Redeemer, Best Friend, Mediator, Prince of Peace, Morning Star, Almighty, Light of the WORLD, Good Shepherd, Messiah, SON OF GOD!!!
And I truly thank Him for the taps on my shoulders--allowing more boulders to come thru, to get me to look for the Real One, Only One, to truly turn to for answers. Not signs, or friends, family, guesses... or just however things roll-the way we wish to live. When we find Him, turn to Him, give Him OUR LIFE-which is His anyway-then we truly get to live. Live thru Him, and for Him. And see the miracles and wonders He works in our lives, others lives-every day, every moment. Even when hard stuff is going on.
Yes, it took some of the hardest of hard-you'd think people would never think God exists-when really-these are the moments so many turn to find Him. We have to be on our toes, as Christ followers, that ones who are going thru tough times-also seek Him. We have to not throw it in their face--or I am first to tell you, the greatest percentage, as I, will run. But present it humbly. Even with testimonies-that show the scarring of our life. The total imperfections, that get us to our knees to wake up knowing-we are NOTHING without Him. And we are always imperfect-until the day He makes us perfect, with Him-in His Holy Realms of Heaven. Till then-- we keep running this race-knowing we will endure suffering, trials, tough times-but nothing that compares to what our Savior has done for us-to wash away our sins. To make us clean in God's eyes. As we give Him our lives--and live for Him here. Loving all as close as much as we can-as He loves us. Never will compare. But to keep striving to be Christ-Like.
He doesn't hold grudges. We sure do. But as we walk closer-the Holy Spirit sure wakes us up, just at His perfect timing. Teaches us love and forgiveness. Can't have one, without the other. Leads us down just an amazing path-He has had planned long ago-back before we were born. When He knew everything about us, when we were in our mother's womb. He knew we'd be faced with troubles-but He knew He would and is always here for us. Keep calling to Him. Giving Him all your worries, cares, and troubles. He takes those burdens. Makes it such a lighter load-as we love, trust and obey Him.
My precious husband has anxiety when it comes to me. Otherwise he is so calm. But each brain surgery he has been here for, every hospitalization, all seizures, and back in my overdosing days-he has only known-hang on to Jesus. Keep dear Christian in your prayers as I go into my 3rd brain surgery Monday February 1st. (@flyingchristian and @Heliftsmeup ) Pray for my precious daughter Tory. Who also has epilepsy. Has been here for all my brain surgeries-but starting at 1, 4, now 8 1/2. She talks about it so calmly-until the other night. She had such lack of sleep-which throws emotions into overdrive-but she sure cried about everything, including this. But she usually comes up to Mayo Hospital-all excited to see me-never scared. She is one child who can pray like a major PRAYER WARRIOR!! Never silent about Jesus. AMEN!!!
As for me-- just pray they take out the right parts of my brain-and as much this time as possible-- to go from 32 pills a day, perhaps to one medication, and 4 pills or less.
Will miss you when I do go in--but will be on the moment I can Tweet, FB, Blog, etc.
IN HIS WILL-ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!
In His Love,
