I HAVE A PRAISE!!!!!!!!!!

I honestly believe that right before our eyes that a miracle from our Father occured to us last week. It is my pleasure to tell you all that my mother....

DOES NOT HAVE MS!!!!!!!!!!

It is such a blessing to hear this. Last week when my mother went back to her neurologist to find out her form of treatment and what the results of her spinal tap was. Less than two months from that appointment her regular doctor confirmed that she had it. But after her spinal tap the specialist said that all of her symptons were due to when she had diabetes. (She no longer has diabetes due to her losing weight from gastric bypass.) There were no lesions on her brain, but what they saw was cholesterol. The numbness in her feet is due to a condition called neuropathy that is caused from diabetes. She will have to take a medicine that will make the numbness subside.

Without a doubt, I know prayer works.....

I was sent a devotional the other day from a friend. She sent us an email asking for prayer for her son and some issues going on with him physically. We all worry about our kids, families, etc...But, one of her friends who responded to her email touched my heart so strongly. I don't know her, but have heard her story. She is about my age and her husband died in front of her due to a brain aneryusm. They have three very small children. But she stated this in her response to my friend's worries......
 Jesus wrote it to the readers.

Entrust your loved ones to Me release them into My protective care. They are much safer with Me than in your clinging hands. When you release your loved ones to Me you are free to cling to My hand. As you entrust others into My care I am free to shower blessings on them. My Presence will go with them wherever they go and I will give them rest. This same Presence stays with you Ss you relax and place your trust in Me. Watch to see what I will do.

Genesis 22:9-12 ephesians 3:20 and exodus 33:14

Wow, is all I can say. It is so true. I have a hard time "releasing" my kids, finances, ministry, marriage, health, my dad's cancer, my mom's worries, my brother, my sister in law, friends, job, in my Father's hands. They are so much safer in His hands than mine...

I just wanted to say this. Everyday, no matter where we are people are suffering with something. Life is hard. Here lately, it seems like so many friends, family and sometimes strangers I talk to are dealing with a trial. This devotional that was sent to my friend has touched me more than anything this week. I hope this is an encouragement to you.

I was so glad to hear about your mom. I too have a problem putting things in Gods hands. But I know He takes care of me and my family and knows what is best for us. Look forward to seeing you Sunday. I have really missed you. Meaghan and I were talking this past wednesday at praise team on how much we missed you and look forward to you being back home and back on the praise team. Love ya:)
