Sitting here alone tonight and it’s almost 2 a.m. There’s so much going on in my life right now, so many things on my mind. I see the whole world gone mad and increasing rapidly day by day. So I guess you could say it’s like this great whirlwind of heartache and chaos from beneath my very own roof extending all throughout this world. Today I took an extra nap. I admit I’ve been feeling defeated with all of these problems and people that I cannot control nor fix. But then it dawned on me tonight…
I’m still in His hands. My God, my Father reminded me of how my 14 year old Chihuahua’s health has perked up and how she has come so far in but a couple of months. It was revealed to me by Him of just how far she had come and how bad her pain was. I recalled crying in my husband’s arms a couple of months ago when it looked like there was no hope at all. My baby was walking around with her tiny frame all contorted and whimpering along. I just knew she’d have to be put to sleep, forever… But we took her to the vet to get checked out. The X-ray showed that her spine was bent in the middle (the arch of her back) and the cartilages between the disks had worn so thin at the top. He didn’t mention putting her to sleep and I held my breath.
That day my husband, my mom and I returned home with some pain medication and antibiotic for her stomach and diarrhea episodes. We’ve went back a time or two for refills on the pain meds. She still requires maintenance but looks normal now. Sort of thin. There are days when she needs her meds…but my oh my, My God breathed on my dog, my baby!!! And some days, she runs like a puppy. I can hardly keep up when I try and meet her at the mailbox! I know she is still elderly at 14 yrs old. If the Rapture of The Church doesn’t happen first, I will experience her loss. But not like I would have. I truly believe she will be in Heaven forever with me.
I now see that I have taken this all for granted. This MIRACLE! Of course The Lord knew all about our special bond and how she’s been there all along. Since before my Bipolar diagnosis and through the loss of my dad she has always been there. Sitting here tonight in the quiet gave me the ability to really think. The Lord reminded me that if He could do such a great thing for my tiny dog, Little Bit, how much more great things could He do in the rest of my life. I was discounting Him. The Creator of The Universe. I am learning to walk by faith and not by sight. All for His glory. God is love itself. God is compassion. All good things come from above.
I am so grateful for the hundreds of people that cared enough to respond in prayer during that time for me. PRAYER is so powerful. It is so important. It’s so awesome that The Lord has brought me into networks with all sorts of Brothers & Sisters in Christ. In these dark times we really need one another to keep that fire going. I just wanted to share this with everyone in hope that it blesses you and may bring encouragement to a hurting soul.
If you do not know the Lord Jesus Christ, He is only a prayer away! Find love beyond measure, peace that surpasses understanding, and the comfort of The Holy Spirit today! Don’t put it off. We never know what day may be our last.
Revelation 3:20 King James Version (KJV)
20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
Romans 10:9-13 King James Version (KJV)
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
