My Mom at Bubba Gump's
Last April my Mom had a stroke that affected her ability to communicate. She needed 24/7 care and in June I took my turn committing to stay with her for two weeks. She could barely put more than two words together. Then the Lord prompted me to meditate on the scriptures that had to do with healing.
Every morning we would get up and we would read through those scriptures repeating them out loud. It began with me saying the words and Mom attempting to say them as well. What was the result? Within 12 days she went from needing 24/7 care to being able to communicate well enough such that she was independent and back on her own again (that's her preference - we would prefer she moved to live with us or near us). So praise God, He did a miracle for my Mom. She turns 89 in 3 days and is doing EXCELLENT! She can talk so well now.
But there was another benefit I had not expected.
God Reversed the Curse in my Life
When I was 28 years old a doctor looked at an xray (I'd torn my ligaments playing basket ball.. again!) of my left ankle and told me my sports history. He was very accurate telling me how I began to sprain my ankle starting at age 14 and wound up saying I had the ankle of an 80 year old woman with arthritis and that I'd never run again. That almost became true. I struggled for years after that with one injury after another (all the results of how I'd abused my body in high school and college).
When I returned home from helping my Mom, I was excited as God did a wonderful miracle. Then a thought entered my mind. I need to start running again. Well I did. I've been running for a few months now and I just ran 10 miles over the last three days.
I began meditating on the word to help my Mom. That's what prompted me to do what the bible teaches us to do. What would have happened if I'd started meditating on this word years ago? Its a good thing I chose the believe God's word instead of the doctor. If you'd like to see the scriptures we meditated upon....
