I started to panic…


When I began praying about what I would share for my next Cafe devotion, little did I know at that time God would give me an opportunity to share with you a very personal story.

Two weeks ago, my son Jordan started complaining about arm and leg pains.  At first this didn't alarm me.  I simply gave him some Motrin and went about my day.  However, as time went on it continued to get worse. 

After three days, I got a call from Jordan to come pick him up from work. He was now in serious pain.  His arms and legs were swollen about twice their normal size. At that point I knew something serious was going on.  So, what did this woman of faith do?  I started to panic and immediately called his doctor. 

Please join me today over at the Cafe to find out what I discovered that day.

That is great Susan. I think I know exactly where you were. sometimes God likes to remind me that I am holding on way too tightly...forgetting Who really holds my sons. Once after my third son had his tonsils out he got this high fever in that crucial48 hour period after...I knew he had a secondary infection of some kind. I was on the porch with TWO phones, the cell and another- calling the doctor, asking for prayer. This Fedex guy comes up with a package and has me sign. He asks me how it is going...I can't even remember what I said. I must have spilled it. He said, "You believe in Jesus don't you?" I shook my head and replied, "Well, yes, most definitely." Then he said,"Well, let's just take it to Him." He lifted his arms in the air and began to pray! NO KIDDING! Peace and calm began to flood my soul...then he walked away!

I pray you receive a good report and I ask Jesus for healing for your son! Blessings!

Know that I'm here lifting your family up in prayer!
Hebrews 6:17-20 Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

"In times like these we need to know that God wants to teach us how to hold on. He is a very strong foundation in whom we can put our complete trust."

Susan, God is teaching me now, and I just now realized it. Great devotion!

Clicked over to Cafe but didn't find your devotional. I was curious to find out what it was!

You have a good blog. I appreciate your spiritual and family emphasis. (I linked here from Lisa's blog).

I sure hope your son gets better soon! I know this does greatly concern you. You are a great example of turning to the LORD in times of panic and need!

God bless you! Mississippi
