Praises Along the Way--Rough Day But Getting Better!

October 17, 2008

The morning started out calm until my cell phone rang and it was Danni. Her step-mom was supposed to be with her but due to a migraine she could not go so Danni called to tell me that the doctor wanted to talk to me. He had moved on to his other patients so I jumped into the shower and while I was in there the phone tag began.

When I got in touch with the doctor he said that he was concerned about her. She had a pocket of fluid between her lung and the wall of her chest cavity. Oh man! I about dropped my phone because I was attempting to finish getting ready to go as I was talking to him. Thank God it didn't hang up!

He wanted to have a short procedure done where he would have another doctor put a needle through her back into the the chest cavity to draw the fluid off. He wanted to do the procedure in twenty minutes, I told him I'd be there within thirty and he said they would wait until then.

I tore down the stairs grabbing my things I wanted to take with me and ran out the door. I just had to get to Sharky. After a short drive, I was at the hospital and they took me back to the room where she was laying on a gurney in a dimly lit area with the ultrasound humming.

I went in and gave my things to a girl to take up to Danni's room, after a short time they began to sterilize the spot where the doctor would insert the needle. I stood beside Danni and held her hand. I prayed for her, I prayed for the doctor, I prayed and prayed.

It didn't take long for the doctor to be done and after a short x ray to make sure everything was okay she was taken back up to her room. She was amazing! God was there with his peace and comfort! She's so brave! He makes her brave, He makes her amazing!

Later that day a friend came to lay hands on her and pray for healing for her. Once again the presence of God was present with healing in his wings. That friend was not the only one to come and lay hands on her for healing this week.

Also, when I needed a boost, a ray, some confirmation to hold to what I have believed from the beginning God sent another friend who was miraculously healed of a brain tumor to give me a hug and testify to Danni. All this happened this week! I thank and I praise God for the way he moves upon the hearts of his people to bring encouragement to those of his children who need it, just when it's needed!

I believe and though I don't see with my eyes the healing complete, I proclaim my faith in this matter that God is faithful and he began the healing process with her today. I want to live by faith and not by what my weak and feeble earthly eyes see.

Now, join your faith with mine and speak faith about Danni from your lips as well! God is healing her! No matter what we see, God is healing her! Let's live the word and see where God takes us! Amen!

Christy, What a life you are living. How can you not look at all of us and think we are so shallow and clueless? Well, thanks for not judging those of us who haven't suffered in the way you have. Thanks too for finding blessings in everything. It's a great way to live. We stand in agreement with you and pray for healing for that beautiful sharky of yours.

I am and Danni are so strong with your faith that its unbeliveable. I mean I do believe but at times I am not sure if I could be as strong as you both are.I love Jesus Christ and believe in him and I do believe that he will heal Danni. (all in his own will and time) Amen!
I send my prayers your way every day! Never doubt the love that we all have for you and Danni and how you are always on our minds and in our hearts.

Psalms 34..."I will praise the Lord no matter what happens. I will constantly speak of his glories and grace. I will boast of all his kindess to me. Let all who are discouraged take heart. Let us praise the Lord together, and exalt His name." You and Danni are fulling those scriptures...blessings of complete healing...we continue to pray...Fla.
