God our Healer

Yesterday, Haley took Abby (11 months) to the Dr. and found out she has an ear infection. We knew something was wrong because she had fever and felt terrible. Kylee, our 3 year old, was worried about Abby and kept asking "when is Abby coming home."

When she did come home, Kylee prayed for her to be healed by Jesus. That was really moving. We have prayed for Abby since before she was born to be healed from her heart condition and this past December we felt confirmation for that and the Dr.s didn't want to see her for a year.

Jer 17:14 - Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou art my praise.

I was home all day yesterday spending time with my family and updating our church website some. I went to our piano and began to play some old worship songs - Heal Me O Lord; I am the God that Healeth Thee; I Stand in Awe of You; When I Look Into Your Holiness; etc. I also played a newer song by Jared Anderson - Hear Us From Heaven. I did this to worship but to also remember to run to God to even in the "smallest" problems. An ear infection is common in kids and medicine usually knocks it out pretty quick. Kylee reminded me to pray for the smallest things.

God wants us to run to Him for everything. That's my prayer today.

Psalms 19:14
Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.


  1. WOW thanks Bro. Stephen, I enjoy your writings so much and I feel like I had a bible study this morning. Keep on blogging:)

  2. You have quite a testimony with Abby over the past year.
