Miracle Monday


Praise God from whom all blessings flow. I am so glad that today is miracle Monday, because I certainly have a fresh miracle to share. I am so happy, I can barely sit still. My friends, never doubt the existence, power, and precious love of God. Never think that miracles do not happen, because they do. My husbands nephew, is married to a sweet girl named Brooklyn. In June they will celebrate two years of marriage, Gary is 20, and Brooklyn is 21. They have a precious little boy named Logan, he just turned 1 in March. Several months after they were married, a knot appeared on Brooklyn's lower back, it turned out to be cancer. So, bless her heart, she has truly been fighting a battle. She is going through chemo, and has lost all of her hair. She has been very sick for awhile now. Last week, they told her that the cancer has spread. It has gone up her spinal cord, and underneath her ribcage. She was taken to the hospital last weekend, where she then went into a semi-coma. Yesterday, I sent out an urgent prayer request to all of my dear prayer warrior friends for Brooklyn. Well, I know that my friends, along with myself were storming the gates of heaven on her behalf. My friends, God heard us, and He was faithful to answer. Gary called me about an hour ago, Brooklyn is no longer in the coma. She is very much awake, and alert. The Doctor said evidently, she had just had a very bad reaction to her most recent chemo treatment. My God is real, my God is awesome. Praise You Lord for Your miraculous healing power. I praise You Lord for answering our prayers, and taking care of Brooklyn. I know the journey is still ongoing for us, Brooklyn still has cancer. But, we still have God!!!

Oh Denise! I'm so thrilled! Hubby and I prayed for her last evening and again this morning. During prayer time with one of my students today, we prayed for her as well.

God is so good, even in the midst of the storm He gives us peace, comfort and hope.

We will keep storming those gates my friend!

Angie said...

Praying for Brooklyn's continued recovery. Praying and believing for Brooklyn's complete and total healing for her. "For I know the plans I have for you..." God has a plan for Brooklyn and part of that plan is to be a mommy to her baby boy.

KEEP BELIEVING

This is just amazing. God is so amazing and He has these faith buidling answers to prayer. Yes, this young gal is still on a difficult journey, and I will continue to pray, but He does bring us alongside those who need prayer NOW. I am so glad to read this today.

Oh Denise,

I can't tell you how awesome this is. I have been praying for her. I lost my brother to cancer less than a year ago.

I do believe in miracles and God can heal Brooklyn. Praying with you. Love and hugs, Lynn
