The other day when we had freezing temps and icy roads I was driving and it was dark. Well I changed lanes to get in a lane that had been traveled more by others and I hit the ice that sent me across 4 lanes and into the opposite side of the road ditch. Just feet from the fence. Jesus was in control! Thank you Heavenly Father for this Miracle that could have been a very bad situation. Photo was as we waited patiently for our help to come. 26971776_10211197806889689_1240970974_o

To Believe or Not to Believe

I have to go back a few month to start this blog. My oldest daughter has been having some physical issues with her stomach. In the last week and a half it had started to get worse.

Last Thursday after I got off work I called her just to see what she was doing. It was another typical school day and I was just checking on how her and Chloe’s day went. Within 5 minutes my daughter told me that she has been in severe pain and that it felt like her insides were being ripped out of her side. This was at 5:05pm. So I instantly got off the phone and called the doctor and asked to speak with someone about it. I left our information for the On Call doctor that was there till 6:30pm. By 6:00pm I was on the phone with the nurse hotline with CHIP. The nurse assessed Stormy and advised us to get to an ER to be seen within the next hour due to her pain level being an 8.

So off to the ER we went. Waiting in the ER I posted for prayers. (Thank you all for those prayers by the way). Two hours go by and we are still waiting in the waiting room with Stormy having bought of pain come and go. She is crying now. I am frustrated because of the over flow of flu patients in the ER it is taking hours to be seen.

I tell my husband to go ask them how much long it is going to take. Finally we get called to the back, just in time to wait another hour. They come in and do blood test and then order an ultra sound.

Finally we can get some answers… Or so I thought.

They come to roll her back to the Ultrasound room. She asked me to go with her. I sit in the chair watching for over an hour them look at all her organs. The first ultra sound tech was in training, put a ? mark by a picture she took of Stormy’s gallbladder. Then after she went and got the training ultra sound tech that also stayed on the gallbladder the whole time.

After an hour in the ultrasound room we were taken back to the room. Within 10 minutes the doctor came in and said that everything looked good but her gallbladder was tender. That we would need to follow up with her personal doctor and get a GI referral. They prescribed some pain meds and sent us on our way. So 5 hours later we get to leave the ER.

The next morning I get my daughter into the doctor. The ER sent all but the Gallbladder photos of the ultrasound. The doctor had told my daughter that it looked like they would have to wait till Monday and get CT scan done.

All weekend I watch my daughter in pain suffer with upset stomach and pain.

Attending church I asked for prayer for Stormy. I began to asked for a New Gallbladder and for the Pain to leave.

Come Monday Stormy went to the doctor and got a CT scan. By the end of the day we were informed that her gallbladder was good. That she was going to give her some meds to help heal her stomach from all the acid it had that was possibly causing the pain and upsetting of her bowels.

I still felt like a mother they haven’t found what is wrong with her. She has been in pain. I have watched my baby cry real tears and ball over in the floor with pain. I felt like they weren’t doing enough.

When I got home I found out that my daughter had been in the bathroom all afternoon with upset stomach. When we got home around 8pm she told me that there was also blood in her bowel and when she threw up. I instantly called the doctor’s office to once again give my information and told to expect a call back. After 45 minutes and no call  back I call my dad. He called my aunt and got some info on what to do next.

I called her doctor back today and asked several questions to get absolutely no where with no answers to any of my questions. I was told to just take her to the ER. This is coming from my daughter’s PCP. The doctor that is supposed to be who I go to. After much frustration the Lord began to speak to me when I hung up the phone. (And I was very frustrated for the last words I told the nurse was that we would be looking for a new doctor)

Today the Lord really convicted me of my beliefs. He told me that I can’t have it both ways. I either have to believe or not believe.

You see I had professed over my daughter for her to have a New Gallbladder.  But you see when He did exactly what I had spoken over my child and asked the Holy Spirit do a work in her body. He did.

I was not being thankful for the work that He had began in my daughter with her healing. Instead I was busy blaming the doctors for not giving me a reason why she was still in pain.

He basically told me that I needed to either completely believe or not to. I am so thankful for Grace that He gives even when we doubt. I have to learn to believe whole heartedly in His Word and Truth… I can’t believe then doubt in the next thought.

I made up my mind and decided that I am ready to trust, believe, and stand on the Truth and nothing but the Truth so Help me GOD! 🙂

P.S.
Stormy has not had any pain meds since early this morning. She has barely had any stomach issues. I believe for her full complete restoration and healing in her body. I don’t believe she will have to be on a special diet or medications. I believe she will possess the complete divine health in her body.

So Remember it is Easy to do, but you have to make the decision to Believe or Not to Believe.

Blessings

Leap Generation

God is Still in Control!

We have been through a lot the last 2 weeks. Just want to share a few testimonies that God has done for us the last few days.

Last Monday when my husband got off work he went to leave and the van had antifreeze all under the van. He called me thankfully before he drove it. Well I called my dad and he informed me that we should not drive it at all. So I called my husband and told him that I would have to come get him.

This made us go from 2 vehicles down to 1. My husband was a wreck over the whole situations. For some odd reason in this situation I was at complete peace about it. Not once did I question the situation. My parents were leaving town for the week and we were able to get their other vehicle for the week to use.

When my parents got back into town my dad went to get the van. By the end of the day Thursday my Dad texted me and said that it was fixed and ready to be picked up. I asked him what was wrong with it and he said it had broken… I then fully expected for him to tell me how much it was going to cost since he fixed it. I asked him how much it cost and he then informed me that it was still under warranty.

God had given me a complete peace about the whole situation. I knew when it happened that there was nothing we could do about it. For we have put all our finances into our business and have nothing left to fix it. Now we were blessed with this issues being completely taken care of by the Grace of God. It was still under warranty.

God will see us through the trials and what seems like nothing. We will walk this out with our Leap of Faith! He said Leap, that the Time was Now! Now I will Walk in Faith Knowing He is In Control!

God Bless,

Just Have Faith! Leap! Fully Relying On God! 

He Is Willing

My original blog post idea had nothing to do with this whatsoever. Unaware of how the events of this day would unfold: I did my normal routine before leaving the house this morning to go to work, with the exception of listening to my Bible app read the Scriptures to me (from the book of Hebrews) on my way out the door until I got to work.

Once there, I still carried on my normal morning the way I always do: I turned off the reading part and ended up reading several more chapters, finishing with my devotional I have through the app.

After clocking in, I headed to the back of the building to my department. It was another busy day as far as I was concerned. A few of us prepped the truck trailers to get them ready for the day’s orders that would soon be filling their space. We picked up where we had left off the day before by loading the remaining showers that we had left sitting on the dock. A new co-worker and I had went into the trailer to lift a shower and stack it on top of three others (a normal procedure, that we do every day). In the process of lifting it up, my co-worker struggled with it a little—the edge of the shower on my side slipped off and it began to tilt the entire shower back his direction. I hurried and pushed down on it trying to keep it from falling on my co-worker, I thought it had been enough but it again tried going over on top of him—so I pushed even harder on it. Only, when I did it the second time, the shower ended up moving to much, the bottom swung up and hit me in my ribs. We got the shower up finally, but I was in a great amount of pain during and afterwards.

I stopped working and just stood there for awhile hoping the discomfort and the pain would pass, but it didn’t, it just kept getting worse. It got to the point that I was having a hard time breathing and moving. I got put on light duty for most of the morning before it got so bad that I had to be sent to the doctor.

Once at my appointment, I was talking to my wife via text messaging. She asked me which doctor’s office I was at, I gave her the address and she showed up shortly after. She sat with me the entire time that I was there (which was nice, I really loved having her company). I got called back to see the doctor (after waiting a long time past my appointment time), and she went with me. They x-rayed my ribs but found no damage, no broken bones, nothing. The doctor said that I had a chest wall contusion and that my ribs would be in pain for several weeks. He advised me to take some IB’s and work through it. Once he left the room, my wife got up and put her hands on my ribs and began praying. She did this about four or five times, each time her hands were hot (they were not when she first put them on me), and each time the pain decreased more and more. By the time I got back to work I had no pain whatsoever in my side!   Daddy used my wife as a vessel to heal me of my hurt!

Not only did this touch my heart deeply that my wife did this for me, but, it also reminded me of the Scripture in the Bible where the leper said to Jesus, “Master, if You are willing, You can make me clean. Yeshua stretched out His hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing. Be cleansed!”‘ (Luke 5:12, Tree of Life Bible). He is willing to heal us, to make us whole, to meet our need right where we are.
