When my mom first got diagnosed with kidney failure in December I bought her this sign and hung it up in her hospital room!!!
I prayed and prayed and prayed for my mom's healing! I day-dreamed of her being well enough to help me with bringing kids to church again and I know if she could have she would have, because she was very passionate about that. I thought in my mind, who could handle a whole bus FULL of rowdy, rough kids with NO PROBLEM??? MY MOM!!! Annnnnnnnnnnnnnd
WE PRAYED FOR HER HEALING!!!
And on February 17th,
MY MOM DIED!!!
But that does not mean that God did NOT answer my prayer...
"For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory."
(1 Corinthians 15:53-54)
AND WHEN MY MOM DIED,
SHE GOT HER HEALING!!!
God healed her the
way HE WANTED!!!
“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” Revelation 21:4)
For although she wasn't healed in the in the physical sense the way I would have wanted, she truly IS healed!!! We don't always understand the way God does things but we just have to trust him!!! As for God, his way is perfect..." (Psalm 18:30)
How can their be a greater healing than for that which is corruptible to become incorruptible??!?! And for that which was mortal to become immortal?!!?! She is in no more pain, she will never again have to struggle spiritually in her flesh, for the former things are all passed away, a glorified body...
And although I still hurt and I still cry and although I miss her, God answered my prayers, SHE IS HEALED!!! Not in my way, but in God's way!!! “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.” (Isaiah 55:8)
"That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses." (Matthew 8:17)
"and with his stripes
we are healed."
