A Very Special Blessing
Words cannot express how thankful I am that we made it to church this morning. Satan was doing everything in his power to keep us away. He knew what was waiting for us. It’s not normally like us to skip church, but I’m just getting over being sick and I don’t get to see my husband a lot. As I looked ahead at this week’s schedule, I realized that I will be at the church today, Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday, and twice on Sunday. It just exhausted me to think about, so I thought that today would be a great time to just stay home and have some family time.
Then I saw on facebook that our church would be taking communion today. I called my husband and said sorry, but we can’t miss church now. We only partake in communion a few times a year at our church because we don’t want it to just be some religious act. I’m sure making the decision to go really ticked the devil off. Even though I have been feeling better, I couldn’t fall asleep last night because I couldn’t stop coughing. It was sometime after 1am that I finally fell asleep. Needless to say, we woke up late and we left late. My attitude quickly went downhill when I realized that I had forgotten my phone and a couple of other things I wanted to bring with me. Then I realized that it was all a part of Satan’s plan to keep me from going. I was so happy to finally be there. The Lord’s presence was so overwhelming.
As we took communion the man who gave us our juice and cracker passed back by us and stooped down to tell my husband, “Jesus has a very special blessing for you”. My eyes filled with tears. My husband has been feeling the spiritual battle taking place around him and I know how much he needed to hear that word. I know that God has so much in store for my family, but as we were walking out of the sanctuary, a man stopped my husband. He had noticed for a while that my husband has trouble controlling his neck. Although we don’t like to give it a name, it is tourettes. But we know that because it has a name, it must bow down to the most mighty name of Jesus Christ. We have been believing for my husband’s healing for a long time and we remain faithful to do whatever the Lord puts on our hearts, no matter how crazy it seems to us or the rest of the world.
The man who approached us was a chiropractor from the area. We knew his name, but we had never met him before. He told my husband that he’s been wanting to talk to him for some time, but just couldn’t leave this time without talking to him. He wanted him to come in and get treated because they have seen people in similar situations become healed through their work and of course with help from the Lord. We told them that we are not in a financial position right now to afford treatment and the man said, “Don’t worry about it”. Once again my eyes filled with tears. I am so thankful for people like this man who have a heart to reach out to people when they know they won’t get a financial gain from it.
At the beginning of this year, our pastor looked at my husband and told him that THIS is his year. I knew in my heart that my husband would be healed this year. Here it is, December 9th, and although I had began to question when my husband would be healed, I still held on to hope that it would be this year! And now I am believing that the special blessing that Jesus has in store for my husband is his complete healing….THIS YEAR! I can’t wait to see my husband giving his testimony!
