When you are going through a rough time in life, sometimes it's hard to articulate what's happening, couldn't you agree? There's a verse for that! "In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And He who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God." Romans 8:26-27
I love to write about the Lord and the amazing things He has done in my life through this blog. But lately, I haven't felt well at all, intense head pain has taken my life over on many days, and it's hard to get any thoughts together long enough to sit down and think them out for myself, let alone share them with others and seem to make any sense of it all. I'm still not sure all of this will make perfect sense because the MS cog fog is back, but here we go any way.
My new prayer group on Facebook has taken much of my time,and just keeping that going by selecting music, pictures, verses and prayers has been a struggle, but I am determined to do it even through the pain and the Lord has helped me with that. He seems to allow me just a window of time each day to achieve that before the pain sets back in.
I have been amazed at how well this wonderful and growing group of Christian lady prayer warriors is melding together to help each other and new members in the name of Jesus Christ. I can see the Lord's Hand in this growing ministry everyday and am totally encouraged by the way the Lord is using me and the other prayerful ladies to reach out to others in need, in His Mighty name. I guess I never realized that the prayer needs in the chronically ill community were so great, but I am thanking God that He opened my eyes up to start filling this incredible need in His name.
I Praise Him because the Lord has used His Holy Spirit through me to minister to these ladies, in spite of my pain. In the last few weeks, I have also witnessed how He has orchestrated making the "Haacke protocol" MRV available to me and then hopefully to others in this area.
When my radiologist at UDI in Tampa, who diagnosed me in 1997, wasn't interested in pursing a more comprehensive CCSVI diagnostic test, (even though Dr. Haacke spoke with him through email) I was very disappointed and discouraged, but continued to pray about it.
Then, Dr. Haacke came through with another email recommending a wonderful new, totally enthused radiologist in this area that is going to work with me to get this done. We spoke for almost an hour the other day on the phone, and he totally gets MS/CCSVI and the connection and is excited about digging in to make this available to others. I also found out yesterday that he is a Christian! Now, tell me, that isn't a God Thing! Thank you Lord Jesus for your faithfulness~~ Everything is falling into place.
Working with my new tech, and with Dr. Haacke and his group coordinating from their end in Detroit, we can get my comprehensive scan done, then make this amazing technology available to all those others suffering with MS/CCSVI in the Tampa Bay area. This will be a huge bonus for everyone seeking this new scan and I am thanking the Lord that He has opened the doors of Heaven to make this happen.
Just when you think you haven't got anything to say, God will open your heart and give you the strength to speak His Words to encourage others. Thank you Lord Jesus!
My verse for today is above in red.
My prayer for today:
Thank you Lord that you are always with me, even during the tough times when I don't feel good. Thank you that you make always make a way and open the doors of Heaven for those who love you. I do thank you for this growing prayer group of ladies. Thank you for their hearts of gold, and for the way they are reaching out to others in Your precious name. Thank you for giving me the strength today to sit down and write in my blog, which I just haven't felt like for so long. I pray that you will continue to order this process with the Haacke MRV protocol so that I can get my results and others may also begin to heal so they can serve you.
Amen and Amen
