Today brings joy
On Christmas eve we celebrated our Lord Jesus’ birthday thanking HIM for coming from a perfect place in the heavens to save us! It was almost 22 years ago we understood what being “saved” meant for the first time. It took a tragedy. It took almost losing our son to wake us up to the truth Jesus came to SAVE us from our sin not to celebrate the day of gifts and hoopla.
We ended the evening with Mitch being anointed with a prayer from the church family. Laying hands on our boy people prayed for a special gift for Mitch. A gift of a miracle.
Essential Oils Used For HealingIn case you think I’m crazy, look up in the bible all the times essential oils were used for healing, cleaning, perfumes, sacrifice, and even at the cross! (references below) I think this is why I love them so much. There is something special when you pour an oil on a sick persons head or on the area of pain and can feel, smell, and simply enjoy the blessing of bringing your request to the Lord. The oil naturally formulated from an herb or plant which comes only from HIM being poured onto the area of pain. It’s worship in the most beautiful way!
My favorite oils I use on Mitch as each one has a special job:
As we are in the stage of waiting to see and hear what the doctors will do next, we do simply pray. Each day he fights pain but moves on with his day. I continue to bring my concerns to the Lord as soon as my mind wanders into areas it should not. Being in God’s word helps tremendously as I need strength and assurance. In the wait, Jesus is near and hanging on to all of us!
Until we have more, keep praying! Our Jesus has our Mitch!
Love deeper, talk sweeter,
