But we’re not exactly sittin’ here, happily watching soap operas and eating bon-bons, oblivious that there is a tumor growing in our baby’s head.
Just because we’re waiting….doesn’t mean we’re doing nothing.
So I wanted to fill you in on a little of what’s happening at the Blue House while we wait.
*We have notified the neurosurgeon’s office to schedule another MRI (they were waiting for our final word: surgery, or wait?). I assume they will let us know the date/time by mail, the way they did the last time. So I’m waiting for a packet from their office.
*We are reading all we can about nutritional healing, and cooking wholesome, organic, nutritious, local foods that God made, and not junky foods that man made. We are avoiding foods that are toxic and harmful. AKA sugar, soy, msg, dyes, preservatives, trans-fats, chemicals, etc.
*We have sent a sample of Annie’s hair to a lab for analysis, to check for the presence of toxins or metals in Annie’s system. We’re waiting for the results of that.
*We are praying constantly. Like we’ve never prayed for anything in our whole lives. We don’t want surgery. I’ll go ahead and tell you words that I’ve been hesitant to come right out there and say… we want God to miraculously heal Annie in a supernatural way. We are asking God to heal Annie in a way that only God can do.
*We are fasting and learning more about fasting. We will probably choose one day a week to be the Fasting and Praying for Annie day….TBA.
*We are scouring the Bible to search for scriptures related to healing. Another subject (like fasting) I had never really taken the time to learn much about…because I never had to.
I have always believed that 1) God can heal, 2) God has healed, and 3) that every word in the Bible is true. I have just never read through God’s word to find out if God plans to heal Annie. I am coming to realize that this is, indeed, God’s plan: total healing for Annie. And that the price for her healing has been paid already.
(I’m still learning and reading on this one, but don’t worry, I’ll do an entire post on this when I have more specific things to say and can list exact Bible verses to back it up. If you have info on this, please pass it along!)
*We are listening to testimonies related to God’s healing power. If you know of any, please, please leave me a comment, or a link to an online testimony that I can read.
*We are realizing more and more that this is a battle. There are lots of folks out there who are quick to tell me of someone who wasn’t miraculously healed, or want to help me ‘be prepared’ that God might not answer our prayers the way we want Him to…..and I have to avoid those people at this point. I just don’t have the energy for other people’s doubt to rub off on me. One battle at a time.
My dad gave me two CDs recently that I have been playing over and over lately.
One is the most amazing testimony from the parents of a 10-year-old girl who had a grapefruit-sized inoperable brain tumor wrapped around her brain stem and was given less than a year to live, and God healed her…her tumor dissolved. Miraculously. The other is a CD of healing scripture verses.
I can’t tell you how thrilling these two CDs have been to my soul, because I know that they point to the truth of God’s word. They are both so amazing and life-changing that I would love to pass them along to everyone I know. But since I can’t, you can find them here.
So, there’s the Cliff’s notes version of what’s happening at the Blue House.
I would love to talk more and more about what we’re learning about God’s plan for healing.
And I’m sure I will. 😉
