Today I went to go visit my Father at the rehab center that he is residing in until he gets better. He has made so many improvements since the last time I saw him in December. 6 months ago my father had a stroke. The doctor said that he was going to die and if he lives then he will not be able to move his body. The only part of his body he would be able to move is his eyes.
Doctors Proven Wrong
Well God proved the doctors wrong. My dad can eat without a tube. He can write his name in a complete sentence. He can even shake someone’s hand when they reach his way. My dad can shake his head yes or no when asked a question. Everything is slowly but surely coming together. Through this process a lot has changed in my family. My brother in law gave his life to Christ. My sisters relationship with God is stronger than ever. My brother received the job that he has always wanted. I was rewarded teacher of the year and my book is going to be released soon. My mother has developed a new understanding of what it really means to serve God. She told me, “You can go to church every single Sunday, but still not have the love of Christ inside of you. There’s a difference between church work and kingdom work. Keep God first and you can never go wrong.” On top of it all my dad accepted Christ into his life. One day I was by his bed side and I told him the story about the woman at the well and if he drinks from the fountain of living water he will not thirst anymore. I told him a story about how God has been calling his name for a long time and today he is calling is name louder than ever. I took my father on a journey and asked him if he wanted to accept Christ into his life. He shook his head yes and began crying. I told him to repeat the words in his heart because he cannot talk yet. I said YOU ARE SAVED. He began to cry. I began to cry as well. My mother began to praise God in the room while she was recording the moment.
My dad is not able to talk yet and he is not able to walk. He will develop that ability later on. Everything takes time the nurses said. As we are waiting for God to fully strengthen my dad I am learning how to listen to God through my prayer time. I have developed so much strength and patience through this process. I am not mad or angry at God. Nor, do I question God. I have learned to be at peace with what God does because he always has a plan.
Days I Cry
Of course I have days where I cry but it’s not in sadness. I cry because I am rejoicing what God is doing in my family. God works in mysterious ways, and in order for the victories in my family to occur then all of this had to happen. My dad is a real living miracle. My relationship with my dad is so close that whenever I am having a bad day or I need advice all I have to do is dig deep down in my heart and listen to what my dad would say if he could talk. Sometimes you don’t need a person to be right by your side to know what they would say. That’s the power of love. Thanks for all the prayers because they are definitely coming through.
Let go and let God..
