Today I didn’t have a babysitter so I took the whole gang with me to my oncologist. Once we arrived, I felt my energy shift. The lobby was full. I immediately felt sorry for myself. I texted my husband this picture because I wanted him to wallow with me on how sad it is that I have to drag my kids to these appointments and that we had no seats.. Donnie texted me back that the Lord spoke to him that our children were there to pray for others in the lobby. My heart was hard guys, I was almost annoyed by this comment. On top of it all , my oncologist found a suspect bump on my breast that we are both hoping is just scar tissue. I left feeling mostly confident it was just scar tissue, but annoyed that I would have to do another MRI, and schedule more doctors appointments in regards to this. More time away from the kids, more money I don’t have.... I immediately began to revisit my pity party. On the drive home, my mind felt preoccupied with thoughts that manifested into genuine worry that maybe the bump was a reoccurrence after all? . Oh man, I was being attacked hard. Deep down I knew it.
Then Mccoy and Italia begun sharing their stories with me. Italia said she prayed for a young mom who came in with her baby. She was bald and was wearing a face mask. This immediately snapped me out of my self focused pity. How could I have thought I was the only one juggling these appointments with a baby on my hip. ? I knew I wasn’t. Another woman had shingles and my girls started praying and the woman visibly shook and the Lord told mccoy at that moment she had been healed. Upon hearing this I burst into tears and became aware of how distracted I had been. I truly believe my children used the authority of the Holy Spirit to heal multiple people in the lobby today. Lord, forgive me for being so focused on myself today. I failed to realize that you are at work all around me and through me. Thank you God for my prayer warrior children who love you. God you are so good, I stand in awe.
