JEHOVAH RAPHA

After church, I decided to get some food from a local restaurant to take home. The restaurant was overflowing with “after church diners”. It ended up being a loooong wait for my order!

But God used this time to use me in prayer for a precious woman undergoing chemo after cancer surgery. First, I prayed with her husband after he shared with me about the situation. Then later, he introduced me to her and I had the honor of praying with her when we were alone together (if you can be alone in the middle of a crowded restaurant)!

I have to say though…it felt like it was just me, her, and the Lord. Everything and everyone else simply fell away into the background…

Thank You, Lord, for using me today for my Sister and for Your glory! I’m so glad for the long wait!! I love You, Jehovah Rapha!! ❤️

Awesome God!

I was waiting in line at the grocery store. The woman ahead of me was finished but was talking to the young girl checking her out. It was obvious to me that in spite of the difference in ages, they had a connection.

I couldn’t help but overhear how the woman was going for more of her chemo treatment in a few days. The cashier was asking her questions determining that she was being well taken care of.

Finally, the woman noticed I was waiting my turn and apologized for making me wait. I told her I was in no hurry….and then when I received a little nudge from the Lord…I asked if I could pray for her.

Her whole face lit up as she responded with a strong YES! I came closer, gently laid my hand on her shoulder and began to pray. I noticed the cashier with her head bowed as she joined us.

After I finished, the young cashier said, “Whew!! I feel heat!!

Oh Lord!! Thank you for opening the door to be able to pray for my Sister’s complete healing! Thank You for being able to speak blessing and love to the young cashier! Oh Lord!! Thank You for blessing ME!! You are an AWESOME GOD!!!

The Goodness of God!

We were on our way home from spending precious time with family in Miami. First we stopped at Cracker Barrel. Nope-30 minute wait. We left and went to Outback in Daytona Beach.

The first table was in the bar area and it was too cold. We moved to a booth by a window in the main area.

Our waitress was a young woman who blessed us tremendously! Above and beyond service!! I praised her for her excellent service. ❤️. As she brought our box to go and our check, I felt the Lord’s nudge to speak a blessing over her.

I gently touched her arm, looked in her eyes and began speaking, “May this New Year…” She interrupted me by throwing her head back and laughing joyfully!

I said, “I want to speak a blessing over you.” She immediately closed her eyes and bowed low over our table.

I gently touched her forehead and said, “May this New Year be above and beyond what you can think and dream of! In Jesus’ Name, AMEN!”

She raised her head and exclaimed, “I needed that!!” I said, “God is so good!”

Oh my, God is indeed good! Circumstances changed to make sure I was at her table to speak God’s blessing and love over her. I am completely overwhelmed by the goodness of God!!!
