After receiving a message from a reader of the Donkey Whisperer Farm I realized I need to update my health and talk a little more about my relationship with Jesus Christ but most importantly the gift and power of prayer in Jesus Christ name. After reading his testimony for Jesus Christ I asked for permission to share with all of you. – Enjoy!
I do not talk much about my pain and suffering as well I try not to dwell on the negative and stay focused on the positive in my life, I wish I could say GOD healed me 100% but this has not been the case. I suffer from chronic pain every minute, hour and day and I have been told when I am older it will be more difficult I will need to live in a dryer place in my late years. Dampness and cold is horrific for me and I do not look forward to the fall and winter of the Pacific Northwest, Washington.
Please remember nothing is impossible with GOD, prayer is very important as the bible states the angels wait for us to pray they cannot go to work until we pray in Jesus Christ name.
Update on my health:
Washington State has had no rain for over 40 days now and I have learned the warm weather with no rain helps me walk better and less deep hip pain. I was in a wheel chair for one week short of 90 days praise GOD after the three screws were surgically inserted in my broken pelvis from the semi truck accident. From the wheel chair I went to Physical Therapy for almost two years, sadly I live with chronic pain every minute, hour and day since April 13, 2010. I suffer from chronic pain every day, neuropathy in my feet ankles and a deep ache in my right hip where the three screws (large) were surgically inserted into my pelvis. I suffer from insane amounts of knee pain, back pain all connected to the nerves from the pelvis along with the right ribs needing to be popped back in by the chiropractor on a regular basis a horrific amount of pain seems to be one of the side effects. I cannot stand for long periods of time or walk for long periods of time without serious back pain and neuropathy in my feet and ankles.
I continue to pray GOD will remove all this pain from my body one day and I will be able to walk again without insane amounts of pain in my feet and back. I am forever grateful to GOD for his miracle of life and healing as I should have died in the car accident, guess what GOD has the last word and GOD said it is not my time to go to heaven. I am needed here on earth to share the miracle of mercy, life and health GOD can give each one of us if we believe as much as a mustard seed. Jesus is alive and he loves all his children.
Pain is horrific as it keeps on minute, hour and day after day relentless to not give the body, mind and soul a break. It has been my full-time job to heal and get well since April 13, 2010 after surviving a semi-truck smashing into the passenger door of my GOD mothers little truck after she ran a stop sign. I recently read 90 minutes in heaven a book about a man who survived a semi truck accident and suffers from chronic pain he went to heaven for 90 minutes. I did not die or experience any form of heaven when I almost died. What I do remember is feeling like GOD was holding my right hand and GOD was giving me the strength to trust him to take care of me.
Melody, I’m curious. In one picture you’re seated in a wheel chair. Are you still?
I’m old enough to have experienced and seen how the Holy Spirit uses the things in our lives to help us grow spiritually. There are always times of disappointment and wondering but that makes it challenging and interesting.
I would like to share one thing in our lives. My wife was still working as a public health nurse when she discovered that she had a brain tumor. She had an MRI three years prior but the radiologists failed to mark it down. With in a week she had an MRI and we sat before a surgeon at the UW medical center. He said he had surgeries scheduled for the follow 3 weeks. The day was Friday afternoon. He called his wife and found out that she and her daughter would be visiting colleges so he said he would come in special the next (Saturday) morning.
My wife was still on the phone working. I checked her in to the hospital that night and then went home. She called me about 11:30 and asked if I would cancel our airline tickets to San Diego. She had made the arrangements so I looked through her notes and discovered she had taken out cancellation insurance. I called the 800 number for Travelocity. I talked briefly with the man who told me that I needed to call the insurance company to get a reference number. Before I hung up he asked why I was canceling. I told him about my wife. He told me he would pray for her. About twenty minutes later I called the 800 number back. The exact same man at Travelocity answered. I asked if he was a Christian. He said yes. He was located in Bombay, India. She was in the hospital 22 days. When we left, we sat before about 8 staff. The painted a grim picture. They told me I had a Pollyanna outlook on life because of Christian faith. I told them they had no idea who my God is. Today she is 99% back to normal. The pieces fit together like a giant puzzle.
I know there may be times of frustration. Be patient and let your life unfold as he takes charge of the details.
