Bow Up On It



Up late with this sweet thing last night. I think the season changing has brought a little sickness to our family, but not without us putting up a fight.

We aren't the take-it-lying-down type. We bow up on stuff when we know it is out of God's order. Like sickness. It certainly is not His will for us to be sick. He can use sickness to end up being a blessing, but His original design is never to harm His children. So, our first response is always prayer and then BELIEVING that prayer actually works and that Yahweh can and WILL heal through our believing Him. It doesn't really work when you just say a bunch of words you've heard in church.

He's been speaking so much to me lately. Do you trust me? I know you believe in Me, but do you believe Me?

Everyone is so excited to read the Bible stories about people being healed and praying in tongues, and miracles happening before their eyes. So why would we think that those things can't happen in 2011? To you and me and our families? Was God not the same God then as He is now? Did He get wussier over the years and now just doesn't really do that stuff anymore?

We believe absolutely not.
Just like I read stories of Apostle Paul laying hands on people and them being healed, people can hear stories of Jessica Kiehn laying hands on people and them being healed. Because the same Christ that was in Apostle Paul is in me. And in you! Yahweh is as mighty now and He was then. It's up to us and how much we believe Him.

Don't just have faith in God, but have the faith of God. His faith. That nothing is beyond Him. That when you lack finances, or your health is under attack, or a relationship needs healing, that you believe and know...My God is the ruler of all things, and He lacks nothing. If He's in me...then I lack nothing.

Say it, and then believe it.


So I'm happy to say that this morning Ruby is back to herself. After we prayed for her amongst the fussy and crying and uncomfortable and no sleep, she went #2 in her diaper and all was well. Just what she needed. Sweet girl. She was up for hours and hours...just miserable. Finally fell asleep at 3:00am. This parenting gig is such a huge, challenging, tiring at times, amazing, most rewarding assignment we've ever been given. We are growing up right along with Ruby as parents and it's so fun to do so!

Fun, and sometimes tiring.

Did I say tiring?

Jessica-Brice and I stayed up hours last night talking about this. Thanks for an awesome word.

Glad Ruby is feeling better!! It is no fun to have a sick little one. Especially in the wee hours of the night.

love, Love, LOVE this post! I'm always amazed at what God does when we humble our hearts and let him.

And Ruby looks soooo much like you in that picture!
