Update

Hello sweet friends, praying that you are all doing well. Thought I would update you on my health. I had an appointment with my neurologist yesterday, lovebug got to go with me, was very glad about that. Here is what we now know for sure: My brain is still swelling, have no idea how long it will continue to swell, I definitely have a blocked artery in the same location as where I had my stroke, in the back left of my brain, it is 100 blocked. If I have another stroke, it will be a massive one. But, I know that God is in total control here. I am not giving in to stress, and sadness, I am not giving up on my life, I am laying it all in God's precious, healing, hands. He has taken care of me my entire life, and I know He will continue to carry me through all of life's storms, and together, we will conquer the storm, and create a beautiful rainbow at the end. Thanks for your continued prayers, love you all so much.

I'm holding you in my arms and praying, precious Denise. That swelling needs to cease in Jesus' Name and I pray for your total healing today. May God place a protective shield around you and His biggest angels to minister peace and comfort. I love you.

Hugs,
Mary

Denise,

I have lifted you up in prayers and asked God to cover you with His wings, abide in Him and provide you with His strength to get you through this small storm. In the meantime, praying for hope and joy to fill you to overflowing everyday, offering Him the praise that goes along with it so He can keep you filled with happiness!

There is nothing around the corner that is beyond God's view.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Father God, You know Denise and You heard this update but we ask and receive only the good report that Denise confesses! We lift Denise to You and ask that 100% be unblocked and pass in Jesus Name. You, Lord, never created us to live with swelling or blockage, so we ask that You, who are Almighty and in control, stop this swelling and bring healing, flowing form the top of Denise's sweet head to the bottom of her toes, a fresh anointing of Your grace and healing! We thank You for the medical people, such as the neurologist but we ask that You be glorified in Denise so that it will serve as a good testimony to him
and others.

I stand with my other sisters in Christ that pray and have left words of prayers here (Mary & Kat)
that Denise has a protective hedge around her, a shield, a covering of Your wings...yes, Father...thank You for placing that around her even as we pray... that You restore and strengthen her. We thank You for Denise! We praise You for taking her through the storms!
We give You glory for changing all of this for Your glory and to complete a good work. Nothing is too difficult for You! Nothing is impossible! You reign in Denise and she abides in You! Hold onto her, Father, wrap her in Your arms daily and give her a new portion. Fill her old wineskin with new wine. Anoint her and continue to flow afresh in her and through her. Lessen her pain and suffering and swelling! Release more JOY and more
HOPE to replace the trials and afflictions! We ask all this in the almighty, precious name of Your Son, Jesus... who took all of this already for Denise and for me. Greater is He that is in us... We are more than conquerors. We are Yours! Have Your way and do Your will. Bring healing words and comfort to my dear sister as You continue this work. All glory, honor and praise is Yours forever and ever...

My dearest Denise, Thank you for your update and your steadfast stand not to give in and not to give up. Claiming all God's Promises for you, His Word is medicine to our hearts... continue to bless the Lord and be encouraged and blessed as you encourage and bless us. We will continue to pray and bring you before God's throne boldly, believing Him and loving Him and YOU!

Love and many blessing and prayers,
Peggy

My precious Heavenly Father, You know all and see all who have prayed and what they have prayed for Denise. You are El Roi, the God who sees and You, alone, see the total picture for Denise. I agree with all the prayers that have been sent up to You for my dear new found sister. We know that sickness of any kind does not come from You (Denise pray this outloud) but from the enemy. I say to you, satan, take your hands off Denise now, in the name of Jesus. You have no authority over her because she is covered by the blood of the lamb, Christ Jesus, and you cannot cross that blood line In the name of Jesus I say flee now. Bless Your name, Jesus. We give You, the Father and the Holy Spirit praise for all You have done for Denise and for what You are doing for her right now. Praise God from Whom all blessings flow. Father, You are our healer, provider, our all precious friend who loved us so much that You gave Your son as a sacrifice for our sins and healing for our bodies and a home eternal.
What a day that will be when Jesus returns to take us to be in Heaven with our Heavenly Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Praise the Lamb that was slain, praise You Father, glory, honor and praise for all You do for Your children. Thank You for hearing and answering our prayers for Denise.
(((hugs))) my dear sister in Christ.
