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!!!!!!!!
