healing and growth

Today baby boy had his 4 month check up.  He’s in the 50 percentile for his weight and 25 percentile for his height lol.  My short little chubby man.

On the other hand son and I have been sick with what the doctor calls the rotavirus or something.  For a few months I have had this little splitter behind my ear and it never changed in size or anything, but yesterday I noticed it was swollen and sore.  I panicked and texted my nurse dad which in turn texted me and told me to get it checked out.  I called and they can’t get me in until the 25th because I have to go as a year visit because I have a 5000 dollar DEDUCTIBLE.  I talked to a nurse at the hospital that told me it is probably not a big deal and that if I felt comfortable I could wait until the 25th to see the doctor.

anyways.

I started praying… like hardcore praying when you are scared and know you have no control of the situation you are in and the only one person you think about is God. Which also got me to thinking that I need to pray this way all the time too.

He can heal me.  He’s healed me before.. I was hemorrhaging after my son’s birth and my family and I prayed for it to stop and it stopped immediately.  I prayed to have each of my kids and got pregnant with them while doctors along the way were telling me my body doesn’t do the right things to get me pregnant.  I prayed for a vehicle and we got a 15,000+ van for 1,000 dollars. We prayed for my husband’s job to be at home instead of traveling and he got it, we prayed for our house and got it. We have prayed for fever’s to go down, to heal our kids of sicknesses, on and on and on and on and GOD has answered those prayers. If I really sat here and thought about it my whole entire life is a testament to God’s power.

SO, the little bump on the back of my ear.. which could be nothing but a lymph node swollen from this virus will be healed, because I’m His child and He created this world around me just so I could see His greatness every day.

Seek his will in all you do,
and he will show you which path to take.
Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom.
Instead, fear the lord and turn away from evil.
Then you will have healing for your body
and strength for your bones.
– Proverbs 3:6-8 NLT
