“O Lord my God, I cried out to You, And You healed me.” ~Psalm 30:2
I had my second surgery two days ago. I entered this one with confidence and unwavering faith. God has been so good to me and I felt no reason to be afraid. He replaced my fear with peace. My faith tank was full.
Father, I thank You for the myriad ways that You’ve blessed and loved me even before I was placed in my mother’s womb. You have always been by my side, in both the dark and light of my life. I thank You for Your presence, patience, peace, parenting, and power. I will praise You continuously until my test turned testimony leads someone to You. Lord, You have been a rock in my most unstable world. You’ve made broken places straight. You have calmed the storm that came without warning. Because of Your strength, my weakness was made perfect. From this pain, You have birthed promise. I will forever worship Your holy name. You are great and greatly to be praised. It is true, there is NO ONE like Jehovah. The great I AM, the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, the Author and Finisher of our faith. How grateful I am to be Your humble servant. Thank You Father for renewing my hope and my life. In the mighty name of Jesus, Amen!
“He brings the wind out of His treasuries.”~Psalm 135:7
As part of my recovery I am required to walk several times a day. My little son is very good about reminding and escorting me as well.
Some days I am reluctant to walk because of the heat. Today was such a day. When we made it to the corner, I had to pause for a spell because it was blazing. I told my son how hot I was.
And would you believe that right then and there, God sent a glorious refreshing breeze?! I stood in the shadow of the tree which was gently fanning me, soaking it in and praising God for His goodness.
Today I was able to raise both arms worship style since my surgery. Praise Him!
Today I was able to encourage another person going through what I am. Praise Him!
Today I received a beautiful love token from my job. Praise Him!
God simply has been overwhelming me with His everlasting love. Praise Him!
“Seek the LORD while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near.” Isaiah 55: 6
When I am feeling emotionally overwhelmed by a troubling situation I am going through, I say this “pocket” prayer multiple times throughout the day:
Heal my hurt. Lord, heal my heart.
It’s simple but it works. The Lord hears this prayer the same as He hears all others. The length doesn’t matter; He only cares that our heart is seeking Him.
Today is my first post on TTOMH. I felt compelled to start blogging about daily struggles and revelations as a Christian. It is my hope to connect with and encourage other believers. Feel free to stop by anytime!
