WATER INTO WINE

Sunday, May 29, 2016

50 Is Not Old | WATER INTO WINEFaith is a hard concept to grasp. It asks you to take a leap, often without you knowing why or what the outcome will be. It asks you to believe, without seeing. It asks for complete trust and confidence, without showing you proof.

I am just like most of you, I want to see a miracle. I want to know that God is real and that he knows I exist. My heart says yes, but sometimes I let the devil wander into my thoughts and ask, “Where is the proof?” Where is the person who was dead, and now is alive? Where is the person who could not walk, and just by a single touch has now been made whole? Modern day miracles happen all the time around us, but we have become really good at explaining how they came about. A person is shot 6 times at close range and survives, explanation is they are lucky. A person who is in a coma for years, just suddenly awakens, explanation is modern medicine. A person (I actually know) was held by her husband with a gun to her head. He pulled the trigger three times, with a fully loaded chamber, and yet the gun never fired. Explanation was that when you push the barrel into something really hard, it won’t fire. REALLY??? You want to be the one to demonstrate that?

When I started reading Draw The Circle – A 40 DayPrayer Challenge, I had one prayer that I prayed daily. I prayed for my “Water Into Wine” girl, a modern day miracle. I wrote about this sweetheart back in February, explaining about the terrible disease that she has lived with since the age of two months. Our entire community has been praying for her healing, but the disease is a terrible one and the prognosis was not promising. About a month ago, her mother announced that the hospital was going to be entering her into a clinical trial for a new drug that might show some promising results. With a new found optimism, pictures were taken with the hope that there would be visible improvement. After one month, the results were UNBELIEVABLE!!! The tumors had shrunk dramatically. Here’s the thing, the doctors are astounded. The medicine has never worked for someone with her type disease. They are now doing case studies on her and her results. She is nowhere near cured, but there is no doubt in my mind that the Lord has touched her, and she is now on her way to being cured. Did he use the medicine to heal her? Maybe, but that is alright with me.

Do you have faith? Will you take that leap with complete trust and confidence? Please add my little Water Into Wine girl in your prayers. Let’s show an entire community what the Lord can do.

 

Have a blessed weekend!

    Love your daily reads, and outfits, and will keep your Water into Wine girl in my prayers.😊

    Welk, I am playing devil s advocate being seriously ill. I often think, why die this happen to me, why is there no cure, why do I h ave to go trough this? So, I lost Faith a bit along the way.

      Nancy, I am so sorry to hear that you are ill. And you are not alone is wondering, “why.” I don’t know the answer. I know that people will get sick, I know that car wrecks and fires will happen, and I know that people will die, but that doesn’t mean I don’t wonder why. Why to them, why now, why not me? I will say a prayer for you. A prayer for your health and for your spirit, and I hope that you once again find your Faith.

        That is very sweet of you Tania! Thank you. I am afraid that I sounded a bit down, but that is not the fact. I Have lost Faith along the way, but also think: this happens to me because I can handle it !

        You are not alone, Nancy; many of us struggle just to get dressed but I never wonder why me; why not me; I’m not special; I have had 4 botched surgeries; am I angry, not anymore. I am trying to leave my anger and fear in God’s hands. I am alone, my husband of 30 years died as a result of a botched surgery. I’m not proud to say that I pray for death every day. That has been going on for 3 years and regardless of the fact that my doctor said I would be dead in 6 months, for some reason, God keeps me here; I have no idea why. Please know that I will pray for you, Nancy and hope life gets easier for you.

    I always enjoy your uplifting Sunday posts. What a blessing to hear the report about the tumors shrinking. God is SO good! I am always on the lookout for signs and miracles to encourage me. Many times I don’t recognize them until they are long gone but then it hits my heart what God has done.

    I accepted the challenge in the fall God placed on my heart to be a Stephen Minister for my church and walk along someone in need. That assignment is in it’s early stages but I am so looking forward to watch what He does in both my life and the person I care for.

    Have a wonderful Sunday!

    Thank you so much for your post. Modern day miracles happen every day, as you said, but God a lot of times is not given the glory. Nancy, I don’t know what illness you have and what your struggles are, but I too have a disease that is auto immune, and some days it is very difficult. But I have been thanking God that He is is with me through it, and that there are others that have things that are so much worse , that I could have instead. I cling to His promise that He will never leave me or forsake me. I will be praying for Nancy, and also for that precious little girl. Have a blessed day, thanks again, Tania!🇺🇸

    God puts people in our lives for a reason. I know this to be true today. Yes, I am also 50 years old and love your blog when it comes to fashion, but coming across your blog might just be the miracle we have been looking for with my son. My 16 year old son has neuro ganglioneuroma. We found it when he was 8 years old and he has been going to MD Anderson Cancer Center half of his life. It is not cancer and for that we are thankful. It does however grow and is in his spinal cord and around his organs and even on his brain. People think that tumors can just be removed. I used to think this as well. Now I know that tumors attach themselves to organs and blood vessels and their removal could be deadly. My child is living a normal life with just a few restrictions. But there is always fear. It is very hard to find faith when there is so much fear. Ironic since that is when we need it the most!! We have been told that radiation and other cancer treatments will not shrink the tumors in people with his type of tumor. Reading your blog and learning about this clinical study might be something we could try. Is there any way I can find out some details about this clinical trial??
    Yes, God puts people in our lives for a reason.
    Thank you and God bless you!

      Paula, it gives me chills to think that this might be an answer to your prayers, as well as mine. I pray that this blog will be used to glory God, and that someone will be reached. Maybe that someone is you! Here is the Facebook page of little Mattie. Her mother details about her disease and the treatment. Like the page, and feel free to ask Catherine questions. I pray this will be of some help to your son.

    Sometimes Heaven is the healing God promises.

    There’s only one way to be with the Savior I love is to someday die. “Absent from the body is present with the Lord”
    No fear in death only anticipation in seeing and being in HIS presence for eternity.😊
    This earth is not my home! I’m only passing through it.
