ANOTHER MIRACLE


(By Kristy; written the first of the week; photo taken right before my surgery on Nov. 15.)


I recently blogged about one of my miracles that has happened to me: like Mary the mother of Jesus, I am WILLING to submit to God's will in a difficult situation. "Lord, use my life as You see fit," has been my prayer since I was a young teenager.


Today, I thought of another miracle. When I started this journey of "A Cloud Above, A Chair Below"on Nov. 6 when I learned I'd lost 1/4 of my per. vision in both eyes and then went for an MRI the next day and learned I had GBM brain cancer, one big problem was (operative word WAS--yeah, God!) my claustrophobia. A patient has to endure many MRIs (narrow tubes, long amount of time in them, and sounds like a jet engine on your head), plus six weeks of treatments under a mask locked over your face.


But guess what happened? A miracle occured the day of my diagnosis. My claustrophobia--no, "the" claustrophobia (I ain't claiming it)--LEFT ME!


So, if you're facing a fear right now--this very moment--believe that God is going to take it away and in its place give you peace, joy, and love. That happened to me!


It's gonna' happen!! Believe and then receive!

Funny that I said, "By Kristy" to begin this post. I think you can all recognize mine and Milton's righters' voices, right? Maybe I won't put that anymore.

I've been blog hopping tonight and saw a prayer request for you on The Bluest Butterfly's site. After reading just a few of your posts I was touched and moved to leave you a comment. Thank God for the Miracles he's been working in your life. I pray he blesses you with many more.

My dear Kristy,

I commit to you, to Pastor Terry, and to Almighty God I will fast the Friday noon meal for the six weeks of your radiation treatments.

I was told two years ago I have non-Hodgkins lymphoma. Last Thursday I had PET/CT scans, again.
I prayed and thought of you throughout the entire procedure. Time passed very quickly.

From day one, similar to you, I have only asked God to give me the ability (through His strength, not mine) to "pass through the waters" in a way others will see Jesus in me. I ask nothing for myself---only the blessing which will allow others to see HIS power in me. Hallelujah!

I thank God for your wonderful, loving husband, for every member of your family, for your Church family, for all others who have loved-you-through-this trial!!!

I shall continue to read your blog several times a day; more importantly, I shall continue to pray for all of you. I hope to attend your church in Jacksonville soon; a young Jewish lady friend has moved to Jacksonville and I have plans to visit her soon.

(I am a widow with no natural children. God has given me a zillion Spiritual children.)

(I visited Rebecca and her husband in Robinsville when they were building their home there.)

Remember: You are in the hand of a mighty God; have no fear; you shall continue to abide under the shadow of His wing!!!!

In His love,
Achaia

Hi Kristy!
Praise God for His many miracles He is providing you in this trial. He's gathering them all up in a bouquet and giving them to you in a major miracle of healing.

Here in the Chicago area we've had a lot of snow and everything is so pretty and white today.

It's a blessing to stay inside where it's warm and read your heartwarming blog.

Hi Kristy. That's wonderful about the claustrophobia! What a praise!! I look forward to hearing many praises about you through this. Your testimony is reaching lives all over the world.

There's something about rockin' redheads, huh? ;o)

I trust you had a blessed Lords' day. We had a Christmas presentation at Trinity this morning. Terry preached a wonderful sermon, drawing parallels between the people of the nativity story with the people of today. We were blessed as always. This post is a testiment to our loving God and His rich grace toward His children. Thanks for sharing. Tom

Hi Kristy, I totally understand this miracle God's given you as I've had quite a few MRIs myself. I had claustrophobia so bad one time they had to pull me out of there early. But the next time I went to a different facility and the tech gave me earphones and asked me which radio station I liked. This may sound funny but it was such a comfort to listen to a familiar dj's voice as I went through the testing. I've always believed God was behind that :)

Bless you as you continue to experience God's palpable presence and help along this journey.
