And He said unto me, "My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
2 Corinthians 12:9

Here lately we have been experiencing no lack of rain. We welcomed the most recent showers and the unseasonably cooler weather that has come with it. However, I am asking you today to send more showers...showers of prayer.

Wow...what a tough and exhausting end for July. More so, what an even tougher start to August. To all who read the blog, thank you. Your encouragement and prayers mean so much to M. I am on my knees this morning asking the Lord to heal her! Will you join me? Please let's bathe my Princess in prayer and beseech the Lord to end her illness, to end her suffering, and to restore her. For now over three years Princess has endured seizure after seizure. Since March, as many of you know, she has been on a special diet to help control and heal her of her seizures. The diet has been working! We have seen M reduce her medication, have less seizures on a daily basis, and start to feel like her old self again. But for some reason, she has taken a turn since last Wednesday...

Since last Wednesday, just now in the last 5 days, she has had around 50 seizures. This is very strange especially since she went almost the entire month of July with just over 50 seizures. So needless to say we are frustrated, tired, exhausted, confused, and numb. What is different? What happened? Was it something we ate? Was it something we did? Was it this crazy Texas weather? Was it that we got out on the left side of the bed and not the right? Was it we drank too much water? Not enough water?

While many of you know about our relationship with our Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, it is in times like this morning and over the last few days that we look to Him. Rather than grumble at her circumstance, I am amazed daily how M goes before the Lord constantly, seeking Him in times of struggle. Drawing closer to the Lord has been a wonderful experience through these last three years. Despite the adversity, the countless medications, the surgeries, the hospital trips...we have held fast...M has sought Jesus, she has not turned from His ways, and has treasured His words more than food itself.

And so, again we are seeking out prayer. Prayer for healing that only God can provide and give. Prayer that would heal M and all of us would be truly captivated by God's glory and power. Would you please pray for M continually today. Tomorrow? Let's bathe her and all be on our knees together for her.

Lord, may M be healed from her illness of epilepsy TODAY! Lord, through our weaknesses you are strong. It is in your power and your control Jesus, that all things exist. M is fearfully and wonderfully made in your image. You are the giver of life and we are worthless without You. Thank you for the life you have given M. Thank you for the strength you have given her. Thank you for the countless blessings you have bestowed on her. I pray Father, that you, today, would make her body new. Take away her seizures...Take away this illness. Thank you for the light she is and the glory that you receive. I humbly come to you today, again, and know that man does not have the power to heal without you. That you not only just heal our physical ailments, but you alone can heal our spiritual ailment and give us everlasting life. Thank you for that life you have given M. Thank you for that life you have given me. But now, oh Lord, heal M's physical body. Heal every portion of her brain that has been affected. Remove these seizures and put your signature on your healing of M. Give her renewed strength. Give her a renewed life and a fresh start from TODAY forward. Thank you that you want to be so involved in our lives.
