Because I Too Have Suffered
My Mama is in the hospital. This has been the theme for our lives over the last couple of years. But this time, something is different.We have seen doctor upon doctor here in our little town. And they have given her the care that they could within the scope of their practice. But it hasn't been good enough. Finally we got the referral I have been praying for.My mother has been in pain, and in peril as we have watched her undergo surgery after surgery within the last 9 to 10 months. Each doctor has been unable to answer our questions, unable to stop what has been happening to her.Yesterday we met another doctor. This was a totally different experience. He came in, assessed my mother, and said "This is what we're going to do." And then he matter-of-fact laid out a course of action stating "We aren't going to cut any corners."All I could say was Thank God, Thank God.This doctor is unique in that he works in an area that most don't want to deal with, and that is wounds. And he doesn't *play around,* he means business.My Mama has been in so much pain, and when she expressed her fear of more pain to him he patted her and promised "I'm not gonna let you hurt."I suppose if anyone has physically hurt in their life, it has been this man. You see, at some point he has suffered from severe, disfiguring burns. And as he sits by his patients and says "If the worst happens, it's not because we didn't do everything we could do, it's because it's God's will," I can look in his eyes and know he means every word.He knows what it is to hurt, to suffer, because he has suffered too. He can go beyond sympathy to true empathy for his patients.I know Someone else who has done the same for me. Someone who was "wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities," Someone who left a throne on high to "robe Himself in flesh" so he could say "I know."I believe this doctor is going to do whatever it takes to get my Mama through this. I believe it because as some point another doctor obviously did the same for him.And I believe that my God will bring the healing for my Mama. For it is through His suffering, "with his stripes we are healed."

Welcome to the 21st Century!!
My family and I took a much needed break from reality this past weekend. We slipped away in our motor home that has seen very little activity of late and went to the beach. It was so beautiful there. The beaches were white and the water was so clear.As usual our *apostolicness* turned some heads, but I personally think it does people good to see there are people who live a holy life and still have some fun. And have fun we did!My husband has a cell phone. I know, you're thinking "big deal," but he almost has one against his will. When we got new phones last year the kids wanted nice phones which they paid for themselves, but my hunny and I got the $0.99 special. I found one on eBay like I wanted a few months back and after consulting with my big brother *the cell phone guru and eBay expert* I called my hunny and he said I could have it. So I have a smart phone. My husband never lets an opportunity pass to let me know how unnecessary he thinks my phone is.So here we were, riding to the beach. I had fallen asleep on the couch since I had worked the night before and was apparently sleeping quite well when a loud POP sat me straight up.We had a blow out in the middle of no where. Thank God it was the left rear inside tire, so we were able to limp into the next town. He called trying to reach the retailer that he knows in that town, but no such luck. While he was trying to figure out what to do, I took my *unnecessary* phone and looked it up on the internet, dialed the number to a tire place and handed him my phone.Granted that tire place didn't have what we needed (and it was really scary), but they pointed us in the direction of another that was able to get us back on the road in no time.The rest of the weekend he spent saying look up *whatever* and see what it says. Now I know it really is not necessary to have my phone, although I certainly have enjoyed it's convenience, but it did come in handy this weekend!My old Pastor used to say "You don't run out and check you're spare tire every time you leave home, only when you need it." Unfortunately that is what religion is to so many people. God rides around in their trunk of life, only to be dug out when there is an emergency.And I see so many people that live life based on the experience of their parents or grandparents. *If it was good enough for them, then it's good enough for me.* It's time I stepped out and introduced them to God's message for Yesterday, Today and Forever, showing them that God is not a spare tire, but He is a right now God, He is a Friend, and He should be a part of all of our life.I am glad that I saw the benefit of looking further into His Word, and was ready to accept something that was so different from everything I was used to. And I am so excited as He expands my walk with Him to encompass every area of my life and give me insight. I cannot wait to see what lies ahead for my family...Always you are welcome Lord, transform my life into something You can use today, and tomorrow, for I am Yours for all time!!!!
