  • Miracles and a dream

    Daddy gave me a dream. It was about the Pharisee and the man who smote his breast (Luke 18). He put me on the top of the Temple, and let me see them clearly. I asked questions and He answered me. It was so beautiful that I just enjoyed being up there. Daddy explained a lot to me and then I indulged those answers with hunger for more. I didn't understand why God gave me that opportunity until a few days later. While I was having a little argument with my husband, (happens in the best marriages too), it dawned on me that my problem is my ego. I had too much Pharisee in me and too little of that humble man. I repented immediately and humbled myself before Daddy and my husband. Since then I'm more humble and miracles have started to happen again.

    The first miracle was that even though I still need painkillers (and probably always will), the pain goes away regularly. My body also functions better like it did before. We even managed to take a little road-trip for an errand, which we normally do with the taxi-bus. It was beautiful weather and we both enjoyed it very much! It was also possible because my bladder pains are most days minimal. I drink fruit-shakes and apple/carrot shakes and that seems to help my bladder. I drink more water and I secretly started with simple leg exercises that you can do sitting down in the wheelchair.

    The second miracle was that I was able to sit in my "non-electric" wheelchair, in which I can go through the house. I especially like to sit in the kitchen near my husband, so that I can help him cut up vegetables. I am finally able to handle knives again!

    The third and most beautiful miracle of all, is that I can walk again! I started with a walker for a few days, then holding unto Charles and now I can walk by myself! I can only walk very small distances. We are not planning on doing that outside because it's too dangerous. I can't stand up for longer than half a minute before I fall, so then it wouldn't work in a shop. But it's such a freedom that I can go to the fridge and get my own drink! Or pick out my own clothes from my closet! The only place Charles refuses to let me walk alone is in the shower with the adjusted toilet in it. He does not trust that floor, so he rather wants to be with me. If I sit in the normal wheelchair then he allows me to go alone, but not if I am walking. Now that I can walk, we moved the bed for Assisted Living out of the living room into the bedroom. This creates so much more space. I am so happy that I don't have to hang in an elevator anymore for transfers! I could go on forever about the freedom I have been given by Daddy, but that probably would make this article way too long....

    What I have learned from previous miracles, is that I definitely have to remind myself to stay focused in the Word. We're currently studying Luke, about 2 chapters a night and I sometimes do a devotional. I plan to do a solo "go through the Bible in one year-plan". Charles will probably get involved because I don't understand it all. It will be good to do some studying on my own as well. I am going to keep eating healthy which will include shakes, lunch and supper. Another goal is to lose some weight, which comes naturally through healthier food and moving more. We found a recipe online to make our own protein powder, so Charles is going to do that tomorrow. It will help me with my muscles and exercising. I am really excited about all of this but in the mean time I will do my very best to stay humble, with the help of Daddy and Charles. Sometimes my ego gets the best of me. I then receive correction, repent and start over.

    I am intensely grateful for these miracles. Finally I am at the point where I can be happy again, in spite of missing mama. I'm sure she smiles from Heaven seeing what is happening to me!

      Thank you for sharing this, Mieke. We need to be thankful for every little joy we receive, and give praise for it. Just imagine: one day in the New Jerusalem, we will all have brand new, incorruptible bodies that will never grow old, feel pain, get sick, or die. I can hardly wait!

  • A Girl named Hope
    by Diggindeeper
    We met Hope soon after we sold a house in Alcoa, Tennessee and moved a few miles away, just outside the city limits of Maryville, Tennessee. Hope was a year younger than my daughter who was eleven years old. She rode the school bus with my children and lived three houses down from us on a street where a builder had built ten homes side by side on one side of the road. We all had about one and a half acres, mostly at the rear of our homes since the homes sat near the road and the lots were narrow,...

  • Christmas At The Gas Station
    by Diggindeeper
    This story was given to me a few years back. I don't know who the author is. I did not write it. But since it was given to me, I want to give it to others. Christmas is a time of giving, friends. No one really learns to live until they learn to give. I've often thought about something. You see, every vegetable or fruit we eat has given itself to sustain our life. Every steak, burger, pork chop and chicken sandwich we eat, some animal has given itself to feed us. And best of all...Go...

  • A Word of Encouragement
    by my1cutie
    You woke up this morning and the crises began Ė keys missing, children uncooperative, bus running late, traffic snarled, boss unreasonable, and that was BEFORE you heard or read even one bit of the dayís news. Itís enough to have us beaten down and ineffective if we allow it to do so.

    Psalm 25 (quoted below in bold type) provides a good word of encouragement, and who couldnít use that most days?

    1) To you, O LORD, I lift up my soul.
    2) O my God, in you...

  • God's Plan for our Time
    by keras
    As 2013 moves along, we may wonder what it is that the Lord has next for His creation. We know the story of how He destroyed an early civilization by the means of a great flood. Jesus prophesied that in the time of the end it will again be Ďas in the days of Noahí. We canít know how bad that civilization was, but it seems they just got on with life much the same as we do today. From Godís point of view, their problem was they failed to acknowledge Him or respect His Laws, so their Creator simpl...

  • The God Who Sees Me
    by Saved7
    Isn't it interesting that we say we believe that God is sovereign, He loves us, He sees everything and knows everything, yet our prayers tell another story. Have you ever noticed how when trouble comes our way, we cry out to him in fear as if He has no clue what's going on and can't even hear our cries. Not only that but our prayers prove that we seem to think God, our Father and Savior, doesn't really care what's happening to us. Now before you assume that I'm calling us all faithless, please...
