Overflow

My heart is on overflow to the LORD who showed up in a BIG way yesterday for Audra Elizabeth's surgery to remove the loose cartilage from her knee. The Dr. had NO explanation for the over a dozen pieces he removed. NO EXPLANATION. He could not find a donor site where the cartilage had come from. He even had his assistant look. He said her knee looked PERFECT - and he showed me 2 pages of colored pictures that proved his point and which also just confirmed the spiritual attack aspect we have been encountering. Leah, your comment from the last post, summed it up!

He also removed a non-cancerous nodule about the size of a sweet pea that he had not seen on the MRI - his words were "If this surgery was done to just remove the nodule, I'd consider it a blessing from the LORD." All I could say was "Praise HIS NAME."

PRAISE HIS NAME!

I am still saying it - PRAISE HIS NAME!

I find I'm living in the abundant overflow of HIS mercy, grace and lovingkindness, not only today - but each and every day.

One of the earliest verses I put to memory was Romans 8:28. I could not help but think of His Truth again yesterday. He is soo good. I am so thankful to HIM for you. Thank you for joining us in prayer and praise! HE alone is worthy!

LORD, I'm living in and experiencing Your overflow
Your goodness, grace and mercy, I don't just feel, I know
We are surrounded by Your powerful and healing streams
Even when enemy attacks make us think we are in a bad dream
We are living, moving and breathing in Your overflow
And Precious Father, YOU are all I want to know
In good times or bad
Whether I feel happy or sad
More of YOU, in me, please overflow
More of YOU, I want to know
Thank you LORD for Your abundant overflow. Amen.

Lora,

Wonderful answer to prayer. Even more than you could ask or think, some specifics were not even on your list of requests. Isn't that just like the Precious Lord we have?

God is always in the mix of what is going on. Sometimes we get to witness His Presence. Thank you God for being our refuge and for taking care of Lora's children. The Lord is GOOD! B

So, so thankful for the mercy and grace that He showered on you. God always goes before us....when it turns out the way we want it and even when it doesn't. We can trust His heart!! Rejoicing with you.

And, yes, again, what the enemy means for pain and destruction the Lord our God means for our good and joy!

Your testimony encouraged my heart this morning.

Many, many blessings to you!
