Thank you to those storming heavens gates with prayers and intersession on behalf of my family. Tonight there is a new song mama is dancing to, one of sweet victory. The road ahead is hopeful long and filled with unknowns.
Yesterday before she was put in isolation I had the chance to spend some time with mama alone. The Lord laid upon my heart Psalm 18 1-6. I tweaked it making it fit her needs. As I read specific words she would double blink, her way of saying yes,as if to stand in agreement with His word. I don't remember a time in my life that my mother and I have ever share God's word in such a sweet way. Out of such a tragic situation He has brought such healing to our broken family, His fingerprints are every where right now. AMEN!
Since her open heart surgery Monday morning, her kidneys and liver have been failing. The family has been called in twice as we stared at death's door. She is fighting and defying all medical odds with all glory be to our Heavenly Father. About an hour ago I talked to my dad and got some more good news. They have decreased some of her medicines, all internal bleeding has stopped and there is no need for further surgery. Her liver is fully functioning allowing her heart to function on it's own. She has some color back in her cheeks and her body temperture is much better. Although she is not out of the woods by any means she is making great strides in the right direction. Prayers are being heard and I ask you to please continue to storm heavens with you prayers and petitions for her and my family.
Here is Psalms 18 1-6 David's Song of Victory (Mama Victory)
1) How I love you, Lord! You are my defender.
2) The Lord is my protector; He is my strong fortress.My God is my protection.and with Him I am safe,
He protects me like a shield;He defends me and keeps me, safe.
3) I call to the Lord,and He saves me from my sickness. Praise the Lord!
4) The danger of death was all around me; the waves of destruction rolled over me.
5 )The danger of death was around me; and the grave set its trap for me.
6) In my trouble I called to the Lord; I called to my God for help. In his temple He heard my voice, He
listened to my cry for help.
Verse29 You give me strength to attack my sickness and power to overcome.
Thank you to my sweet bestest friend Joy who is just aching with feeling so helpless. Although our hearts long to be together our spirits are.We know the Father has a purpose for this delay. Remember to keep her in your prayers as she if getting stronger each day. She has all her staples out now but is still having pain and some difficulty getting around. This weekend will be a tough one for her because it was going to be "our weekend together."
Please send some extra love her way.
Keeping Faith in my prayers and thoughts.
Sometimes a Picture of someone helps with prayer. Here is a picture of my mama.
