Shalom Dear Brothers and Sisters
Never in a million years did I think I could live like this! I want to share with you the fact that Abba is faithful. My mother never thought I could live like this either, she too needed an answer from God. She prayed and said Lord she was so vibrant so full of life will you restore her, please do not leave her like this as she threw open her Bible! It opened and Habakkuk 2:2-3 jumped out at her. We have stood on that word and the Lord has confirmed it over and over in other ways over the years! A few days, after I got my swallow back! A few weeks after that after being on a respirator from October 16 until December 22 my lungs started functioning on their own!
Once they removed the respirator and put in a temporary/permanent trachea tube with a plug, I spoke my first words! I was screaming because of the pain and scared myself half to death as well as the poor Dr. who was doing the procedure at the time. All I could say was I can talk praise God I can talk!
Little by little over the years the Lord has been faithful in restoring my sensations on the right side of my body and now I am getting tingly and on the left. I can move my right arm from the elbow to the wrist! I can move both my legs when I'm sitting in my wheelchair so I made myself bells on a string that I wrapped around my ankle and I keep time with the praise music.
I get a lot of attention where ever I go in public which gives me lots of opportunities to share why I can still smile! It wasn't easy, the Lord and I had a discussion about it when I finally discovered almost a year later what exactly had happened to me and that my prognosis according to the doctors is, it is impossible that I will ever walk again. I had a brainstem stroke.
I told the Lord this was not in the plan I have two children to raise a husband who needs me I couldn't do this! Then he asked me a question, "Did you give me your life?" I said yes. He said do you want it back? At first I wasn't sure of the question. Then He said, "Will you Trust Me". I said yes! I cannot do this without You! With tears streaming down my face I felt His arms wrapped around me so hard and hold me like never before! That is what I always try to remember the most about this whole ordeal. He recently reaffirmed to me again that He cradles me in His Arms! Although I did get a scolding for worrying and fretting and I'm ever so thankful that He loves me enough to keep me in line.
He has walked this road with Myles and I every day every hour, we have never known lack in any area of our lives and I know we never will. So what ever you are going through I know the one and He knows me and I know that I know I can trust Him and so can you!
B'Shem Yeshua Hamashiach, Amen
In His Love, Theresa
