Faith Filled Friday

Let me tell you what My God can do. 

On Tuesday morning at 3:00 a.m., I received a call that one of my brothers had suffered a stroke. He was in the hospital. He had the stroke between 10 and 10:30 p.m. Monday night as best we could figure out, but it was 2:00 in the morning Tuesday that he could finally function to call someone.

After I hung up the phone with my sister, I immediately began praying. As soon as my friends were up, I requested prayer on Facebook. I put him on our church prayer list and asked others to do the same. My sister, cousins, friends all did the same. We had a network of prayer going for him.

He fulfills His promises...trust

After several days of prayer and worry, I am happy to announce is has pulled through. From barely being able to stand straight, problems with his motor skills and very confused with trouble talking, he is able to get out of bed and walk where he wants. He is able to feed himself, pour himself a Pepsi and drink it and to carry on his conversations and visit with friends and family who have come by to check on him.

He will have to have a small amount of rehab, but the Lord is good and we expect a full recovery. It just amazes me how our darkest hours can turn in to God's spectacular moments. Miracles performed, mercy shown and grace received. All because we took a moment to pray in FAITH believing that God would see him through this.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all my family and friends who have offered up prayer and support through this rough week. God is good.
