PRAISES!

Though they kind of got 'buried' in all the pics I posted ~ who knew they'd post one, by one, by one, by one?? Lol!~ the posts I put up on July 11th and July 13th are resonating with me today and, upon the heels of a very prayer-filled propehcy seminar at our church Sat.,I am all the more challenged to trust God harder, and pray all the more,for my unsaved family & friends as well as for the saints in our church and the church world-wide. I asked for prayer for the gift of healing Saturday, as we were encouraged to pray for the gifts of the spirit we do not feel we posess in order to bring more glory to God. Well, I have never felt that I have had any giftings in the areas of healing prayer or speaking in tongues,so I boldly raised my hand for prayer for both(this took a lot of muster, let me tell you! LOl. And that is to my shame, because I was very tempted to put fear of man over obeying God and asking to be able to serve Him better with spiritual gifts.)

Well,to keep a record of this and to edify you all and myself,I had horrible pain in my left ear last night, which had gotten to the point where I couldn't fall asleep because of it, and I prayed a bold prayer for the healing of this ear~placing my own hand over my ear and throat where it was hurting~ and after several minutes of stating to myself several times " I believe You can and will healmy ear, if it is Your will" and " We are healed by His stripes" The Pain Started To Lift Away. One layer at a time, a numbness took over where just minutes before there was searing pain, and I was able to start praising God for my healing! Moments later, I passed out (I was so overtired!)but first thing when I woke up this morning I was able to praise God for my healing and His willingness to bless my feeble attempts at a healing prayer ( even though it was for myself this time.) Thank You, God!! And I just wanted to post this to encourage any of you out there who may read this post to keep praying for your spiritual gifts to be released in you, God hears and not only is He able but he is willing, according to His plan.... God bless!! ;)

Stacey, I just happened to click on your blog today and was so encouraged! Keith told me he got to pray for you on Saturday for this area. Isn't so kind of God to give you such an immediate & sure evidence that he is at work? So kind! I will pray for you as you continue to grow and be bolder in pursuing these new gifts that you desire. :)

God is able to do exceedingly, abundantly above anything we ask or think. He is so awesome to show us that He is there to give us power even when we are feeling weak (both spiritually and physically!!) I'm finally back to posting! Stop by if you get a chance!
