Giving Thanks

Instead of continuing with the story of my daughter's almost death from liver failure, here is an important message from the Lord about giving thanks.  I sure feel grateful!

He told me to read Psalm 100 in my dreams over and over again.  Here it is about giving thanks.

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
Worship the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs.

Know that the Lord is God.
It is He who made us, and we are His; we are His people, the sheep of His pasture.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name.
For the Lord is good and His love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Comfort In A Crisis

On October 19, 2014, my daughter had liver failure due to excessive use of Tylenol.  She was air lifted by helicopter to St. Louis University Hospital because of its severity.
She has a disability that causes chronic pain and when she ran out of prescription pain medicine, she used Tylenol.  As we later learned, Tylenol should only be used according to the directions because it can build up in a person’s body to a dangerous level.
Since lots of people consider off the shelf medicine safe in any dosage, an antidote was available.  She was on life support and unconscious but with a 50% chance of survival because of this antidote.
At first, I cried and was scared until I saw her at the hospital.  Then I prayed for help and the Lord reassured me with His presence and said that it would be ok.
After canceling my commitments, I contacted everyone for prayers and had her put on church prayer lists.  I was stressed but hopeful because a loving and merciful Father determines our fate.

Trust In Jesus

My great spiritual experience for the last three weeks began the night before it started, as I was going to sleep.  A strange creature caught my attention and I thought it was a mouse on the bed, but when it came directly in front, I knew this was no mouse.

As it stopped and stared at me, I saw that it looked like a type of beetle but mouse size and much larger than any bug in the midwest.  I said a prayer of protection to Jesus and knocked it off the bed.

I heard it on the wall as it continued to move.  This was an opportunity to trust in Jesus and build my faith, so I said another prayer and went to sleep.

This was to be the last good sleep I would have for weeks.  Supernatural help is only a prayer away!
