Last night was a rough night but only because Jake didn’t feel like sleeping. He was wide awake at 12:30am and talked and cried and blew zerberts on his arms until way after 2am. He just wasn’t up for sleeping so it’s a good thing that all I’ve done for the past 2 days is sleep!! I’m not tired this morning and I’m feeling a lot better.
My fever broke yesterday and today I can swallow without it feeling like I’m swallowing rocks or talking with golf balls in my mouth. This is the quickest recovery from strep I’ve experienced ever. This is great news as I have to preach tomorrow morning and help lead the worship.
God always saves me just in time. One time, when I was about half way through my pregnancy with Jake, I twisted the wrong way trying to pick up my little Li (who was almost 3 at the time) and I felt a POP. Instantly I could not move. I was in absolute agony. I knew I couldn’t take anything either for the pain except Tylenol and this was morphine kinda pain. I was on the couch for awhile and in that time I had lots of help from our church and from our friend’s church which is down the street from our church. My hubby was out of town during all of this so not only was I to preach on the upcoming Sunday but I was to baptize a couple in our church. After getting 7 needles in my spine in the ER and having a friend who is a massage therapist come to my house and do a session with me; I was still in pain. I didn’t think I was going to be able to be there on Sunday. I continued to pray and thank God for healing me. What a testimony it was when I got into the pool, I was able to raise my hands for the first time and I started to cry. He healed me instantly. I was able to baptize my two friends and continue on in the day with absolutely zero pain. The doctors were amazed and they didn’t tell me until later that I had torn my muscles when a rib popped out of place. That’s a major injury – of which I have no side effects from to this day.
I thank Him for everything He’s done in my life, big or small – it doesn’t matter the intensity of the illness or the situation you find yourself in. He is bigger than it all. His name is greater than any other name on this earth; poverty, sickness, etc. He is able!
