Everyone is worried.
Worried that Lucie has a very serious problem with the growth of her brain, worried that her development is going to cease or who knows what. I am doing my best not to worry. I am not a cliche but I am taking this to Jesus, my healer. And when I feel tempted to worry I chose to remember...
I remember when Michael suffered the most terrible allergies I've ever seen. I remember when the allergist told him he was allergic to everything and prescribed a ton of meds that made his nose bleed. I remember how he couldn't even eat dinner outside at restaurants without coughing and sneezing. I remember how Michael prayed and asked God to heal his allergies. I remember how Michael asked God to heal him so that he could enjoy the outside world that God had created.
I remember how our God healed him! I remember how my mother in law almost crashed her car into a curb when Michael told her that he no longer had allergies because Jesus had taken that from him. My God heals!
When I start to think what all this could mean for Lucie I remember when I was experiencing terrible pain in my abdomen. Pain so bad I would fall down unable to walk. I went to see a gynecologist and I remember her telling me that she felt a growth in my uterus. I prayed, I asked everyone I knew to pray for Jesus to heal me and remove this growth.
I remember going for the pubic ultrasound and the tech telling me that there was NOTHING to see! I remember her telling me that that there wasn't even any fluid as if a cyst had broken. I was healthy!
Just a year ago I was having weird visual problems. I was seeing a black spot in my vision. I remember the doctor telling me that it was attached to my retina and that if it pulls off I could go blind and that I needed to see a specialist before the week was out. My parents were worried, I certainly didn't want to go blind. I prayed, and I prayed. And a guy at a coffee shop who didn't know me, but did know Michael, prayed for Jesus to heal my eye. He just came up to me because he was prompted by the Holy Spirit to do so. I remember feeling the Spirit of God upon me in the coffee shop and I remember coming home and telling Michael, "I'm healed!! Jesus JUST healed me!"
I remember the look on my dad's face when the eye specialist said to me, "your eye is perfectly healthy. There is nothing wrong with it at all. Its a picture of health." I remember praising Jesus in that doctors office and thanking God.
So when I think about Lucie, I will remember. God is our loving Father, All Mighty Healer, Redeemer, Savior, Master, and King. I will remember who my God is, and I will pray and seek His face and trust in Him. Please join with us in praying for the Lord Jesus Christ to heal our daughter and cause her brain to grow as it should. And remember who our Lord is.
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's. -
