With so much going on in our lives right now, we have to know that we know, God is our help in the middle of all the chaos.
He’s lifting us up on His shoulders when we feel we cannot walk another mile or go through another thing.
Our help comes from the One who made heaven and earth.
I’m so glad He has big shoulders.
I’m needing Him to carry an awful lot of things for me tonight.
Just found out my oldest sister is at ER very sick. Had gotten a message just before that from my daughter’s friend, saying she had her son at ER because he had poked a small hole in his eye near the tear duct.
Two of my friends have a parent in the hospital right now. Both are in need of lots of prayer. One is in ICU in critical condition, pneumonia from covid.
Our youth pastor and wife’s oldest daughter has been in ICU with bilateral pneumonia since Monday. She is a bad diabetic. She tested negative for covid. Which is very strange. We almost lost her Monday! She was unresponsive, on a ventilator, but was finally taken off. The doctors are saying she is a miracle at this point!
My hubby, myself, one of my friends, (the one whose mom is in ICU) her son, daughter in law, and 4 grandchildren all have been down sick with covid for 17 days now.
I had just found out my oldest daughter, in another state, had it. We weren’t around them any.
We are still under quarantine. My hubby found out six days later he was positive, so that added more days to my initial quarantine date.
In case there are some out there wondering if this stuff is real, I can attest, it is very much real. This is the sickest I have ever been. I’ve had other illnesses before through the years: bronchitis, flu, strep, vertigo, but this was the granddaddy of all sicknesses.
The fatigue was worse than anything I have ever been through. And the hallucinations! I had those two days without running any fever! 😱
I had one critical day where nothing but prayer brought me through. And that night also, I honestly thought my time clock had been punched. I had made up my mind, if my hubby’s fever did not break, I was calling the ambulance to come get us both. I was having trouble breathing.
I am being very real here. I got desperate. I got my anointing oil, anointed us and prayed. His fever broke soon afterwards, and I was able to finally fall asleep, knowing he was alright. I am so grateful God hears our prayers no matter how weak or how strong. I am thankful to still be here.
Yep this stuff is straight from hell! And I am not exaggerating in the least bit.
My hubby and I are much better. Him more so than me. I’m still dealing with chest and head congestion. I’m still trying to get my strength back.
So when you pray, please pray us and for my small town. Our hospitals are slammed and understaffed, with no room, as well as other hospitals all across the south.
I pray my sister doesn’t have it also. I myself haven’t been around her, so thank goodness for that. My baby brother is also under the weather. Praying he doesn’t have it either!
Tonight our church gathered for worship and then had a prayer meeting, instead of preaching.
Afterwards, our church met up in the hospital parking lot to pray for all the doctors, nurses, staff and patients in the hospital.
Little did I know my niece had just pulled up in the parking lot to check on my sister who was already in the ER, while my church was praying! Talk about perfect timing! I knew my daughter’s friend was still there with her son, but had no idea at that moment about my sister.
Of course I was at home during all this. Which hurt my heart, because prayer is where my heart is. I was praying with them in spirit at home though.
Anyways, this song was on my heart tonight. Hope you enjoy.
