Philippians 4:6-7 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

First let me say that I believe this is my year for manifested healing for a medical condition I have suffered with.

I can remember being very tired as a child, having some sort of learning disability and a variety of aches and pains. Fatigue grew worse as I got older and I had great difficulty keeping a job because of this. I managed to get married and have a family but it was very difficult managing housework and the kids. I adapted and concentrated on raising my 6 children. Looking back I can see the grace of God all over me….oh how the Lord helped me to take care of my kids and home.

Then my health took some turns that were much harder to adjust to. In 1991 I was sitting with my kids watching TV when I was struck with a sudden bout of severe weakness. It almost felt like I was having a stroke. My family call 911 and I went to the ER. By the time I got there I was feeling better so they sent me home with a diagnosis of allergy reaction.

This was the beginning of many years of these unexplainable episodes. For the first about 8 years I had them several times a day every day. I lived in the ER and have been to almost every hospital in the New York area even Boston MA. In the middle of all of this I’ve had a hysterectomy and a mastectomy as well as other surgeries and illnesses. I’m left with permanent weakness in my legs and chronic fatigue. My husband is so wonderful and has been through all of this with me and has always been very supportive and so have my children.

This has been going on for the past 21 years. I wrote a little bit of my story on a past blog and someone read it and wrote me saying it sounded like what they have. I presented this rare illness to my doctor who agreed.
There is a specialist in Pennsylvania who sees people from all over the country because he is good at diagnosing people with rare conditions. This doctor is not on my insurance plan….but a dear friend is paying for me to see this specialist  on September 13, 2011 at 2pm. (God is so good!)

I’m asking for my brothers and sisters in Christ to pray for me that God will reveal and heal me in Jesus name. There is power in prayer…… own son was healed of the devastating effects of cerebral palsy…so I know…God is a healer! I am grateful for doctors and I will go to this doctor…but my hope is in the greatest physician…. my Lord and my God.

Will you agree in prayer with me? Thanks so much!

Message for today: I put my trust in the Lord who tells me in 1 Peter 5:7 to cast all my care on Him…….I’m doing just that.
