Praising God

Friday, January 22, 2010

Today I am praising God for his goodness and sovereignty.

A year ago today, my husband was admitted into the hospital with a flesh eating bacteria that nearly took his life. Just before he was wheeled into surgery I got a call that my daughter was going to the ER for facial faciatis - she was also admitted into the hospital. I was also suffering from a burst eardrum and a severely infected mastoid. Everything happened at once and the only place I could turn to was God. It was like He whispered and said just rest on my shoulder. I turned everything over to Him and He gave me such peace. As I lay on my pillow that night I felt I was laying my head on His shoulder.

Besides Scripture, many of Dennis Jernigan's songs comforted my during that time. One was "It's Gonna Be Alright", www.youtube.com/watch?v=QNv4_Y

God did take care of us and healed us. My husband didn't lose his hand (which was a real possibility), my daughter had no scarring or brain damage, and I had surgery and regained 85% of my hearing back.

I'm praising God this on the year anniversary of a very scary day!

God is good all the time, all the time God is good!!!!!!!!

    What an amazing testimony! It is indeed awesome how God is there and He just pulls us through all these trials and tribulations. It's hard as we go through them but He always pulls us through.

    Have a blessed day my new Sparkfriend :-)

    Wow you've really been through it! What a lovely thing to remember the anniversary of your family's deliverance. The OT talks about making memorials, and you did that here.

    This is one of the most inspirational blog I have ever read. As I sit here pondering all you have been through I am reminded that in life we may make plans but we must allow God to direct our steps. It is the only way to get the comfort and assurance that everything will be ok. You are truly blessed and you are a blessing to me. Thank you for sharing.
