last few weeks I've been sharing and updating with thoughts as my
Momma discovered she had a tumor on her spine in April. Thank you
all for praying with our family for good reports and her healing.
This past Monday, she
called me with answered prayer that the tumor is benign! In
this, I have learned many lessons about God's sovereignty,
praising Him in all circumstances, and more so about believing Him
and His promises. So many times, I take the safe route in praying.
Asking God for the little things, praying for things I am pretty sure
He will say yes to. Yes, it is good to pray about every , but it's
time to stop praying just the “safe prayers." We are to pray believing He will do as
He has promised. He will answer us. He does work everything together for
good to those who trust Him. When my Momma called me with this good
report, obviously I was excited- yet sadly, even though I knew God
could heal her, I was in shock...at a loss of words. Even though I
was praying for her healing I was mentally preparing myself for the
worst case scenario. I questioned God, asking Him if she had not already endured enough physically with paralysis (that he healed her from), fibromyalgia,and rheumatoid arthritis--why this too? He worked tenderly in my heart. Drawing me to Himself so gracefully each morning during our time together. Calming my anxious heart with His sweet peace. In His mercy He chose for there to be no
cancer present. So with the man in Mark 9:24 I say, “Lord,
I believe; help mine unbelief." This past weekend we were able to celebrate Daddy's 55th Birthday and then Mother's day together.
Mom was the special speaker at our Ladies brunch during Sunday School.
She did a fabulous job!
