Saturday, December 1st!! I know that is tomorrow, but I will have completed the 6 weeks that the hospital appoints me. But today – November 30th, there’s been a blessing!!
- Last weekend I had a fellowship the Saturday after Thanksgiving that was very encouraging to me. It was a time with our Ghanaian friends/family from all over Houston; that just lifted me up!
- I cooked gumbo. Lloyd said it was great.
- I tasted a Whataburger Jr. LOL! I liked it more than Sonic but do no understand why people would eat it regularly
- And the best news is … The difficulties are not bothering me!!! Vertigo, tiredness, vocabulary, recognition of people … they are still there but I feel ABSOLUTELY blessed!
Lloyd has been pretty clear that we were going overseas in our job soon. I didn’t really believe it, but the doctor’s office called me to let me know it was necessary to ensure that I’m ready to return full time to my job. The doctors office also let me know that they have been communicating this to Lloyd which means, I’m on a plane!! We are going to France (NO! not Paris) to visit three missionaries who are learning French in preparation for their work in Africa.
I was a little scared at first, but I was reminded by my Spiritual Director, Minister Denise Foxx, to remember that I have not had a seizure in six weeks AND I haven’t had even an airplane seizure since the Lord placed me under the care of this neurological team. I believe in The Amazing Almighty God! I trust Him! Yes, I do! He has guided me and He will keep me. Y’all … pray for me!
When I return from the trip, I will be meeting with the surgeon as soon as I get off the plane … literally! He wants me to land and drive straight to the Houston Medical Center. I love the relationship I have with them, and God’s impact on them through lil’ old me! 5 days after meeting with the surgeon I have an appointment with the neurologist. It is not over yet!
I know that The One who is healing me is worthy of all praise. In fact, I know that The Almighty God has healed me of the seizures and sent me through surgery because I can let others understand the work of Our Father in medical care. I’ve had six weeks without ONE seizure! The Holy Comforter has kept me in my right mind. The Great I AM reminded me day by day that I am a child of the King who is!!
My Father, my Lord, the fullness of my joy is in Your presence! You receive my praise each and every single day! You have loved me, My Father. You have called me to be a saint and have, through Jesus Christ, given me grace and peace. I’m rejoicing today because I know, with no doubt, that you will keep me firm until the end. I know that Your hand keeping me will help me to be blameless when Jesus Christ is looking at me! My Father, you are so faithful. I am grateful beyond my own understanding that You have called me into fellowship with Your Son, My Savior, Jesus Christ. Traveling across the ocean is a place that You will keep me. Using me to serve people who have been called by you into missions, I know you will use me strongly for the sake of Your Kingdom. (Proverbs 3: 23 – 24; Romans 1:7; 1 Corinthians 1: 8-9)
