Oopsie is Healed!

Where do I even begin? First of all, as of tonight, Oopsie is completely bump-free. Praise God! He is AWESOME.

I had SO many family, friends and strangers praying for Oopsie and so many kind words and words of encouragement. I can't even begin to express how much every single prayer and encouraging word meant to Brad and me.

The first couple of days were REALLY hard. I Googled ... and I shouldn't have. Of course, something horrible and deadly came up that sounded so much like what he had. I had a hard time not thinking about it. I was a serious mess; my eyes were so swollen from constantly bawling my eyes out.

I thank God so much for the people he has placed in my life. You all are such a blessing to me. I asked God to do a miracle and for this whole thing with Oopsie to become a great testimony that gives Him honor and glory and that He did. I have no doubt that my God is a Healer and a God of miracles.

Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth. (Psalm 46:10)

Now faith is assurance of things hoped for, a conviction of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1)

And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou taken up and cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that what he saith cometh to pass; he shall have it. Therefore I say unto you, All things whatsoever ye pray and ask for, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. (Mark 11:22-24)

Again I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father who is in heaven. (Matthew 18:19)

Those are some really encouraging verses among many in the Bible. I also know what the Bible says about being double-minded and being double-minded is something that I struggle with quite a bit, especially in hard times ... as well as, fear, anxiety, condemnation, etc. So, I have no doubt that my husband, family and friends (many who have great faith that I admire) really stood in the gap for me while I was going through this. No doubt, God heard their prayers and answered them.

I know Oopsie was on antibiotics and we also had him on Children's Benadryl but we know that God is the one Who healed him.

John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it have been given him from heaven (John 3:27).

So, I give all honor and glory to God.

Brad and I grew so much through this. We grew closer to each other and closer to God. It caused us to examine our hearts and repent of some things and for all of that, we are thankful.

Again, thank you so much for all of the prayers, love and support. I love you all so very much!

  1. God is good. In a world filled with sadness and disappointment, I'm reminded of this time and time again. We are so thankful that God has touched Oopsie and that he is well. Your family means so much to mine. I send love and Max and Riley send *wags & licks*
