Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good. His unfailing love continues forever, and his faithfulness continues to each generation.
Psalms 100:4-5 NLT
I can still recall in vivid detail what happened to my parents one day in March of 2015. I woke up late on a work day having extended my hours too long in the office the previous night. I opened my phone and stared at the messages and missed calls. My parents were both rushed to the nearest hospital early morning; both had a stroke.
I remember rushing to the provincial hospital from a city one hour away. I was dazed but kept a calm demeanor knowing I had stuff to do. In an adrenaline rush, I was able to manage both of their needs among other things in no time.
After everything was done, I slowly and deliberately went to the chapel and sat in a mix of relief and surrender. My eyes full of tears, I fervently prayed for both of their healing and asked for His will. I said in all conviction that I would do anything for them to recover.
It is a miracle they both survived and are now relatively active almost as if those crazy, exhausting months never happened! They renewed their vows a couple months after. Now both of them are attending Sunday service at the local church. 🔥
And this weekend we went on an out of town trip that involved some trekking to the falls and strong beach waves. It was absolutely amazing and inspiring to see them with such energy and smiles on their faces!
Lord, I love You and I am forever grateful for all the miracles in my life most especially for healing my parents, keeping them healthy and for also working on the spiritual growth and harmony in our family. Please give me the strength and wisdom to influence them to grow closer to You and to each other. In Jesus' mighty name, Amen. #Love #befaithful #forevergrateful #Loveistheanswer #Jesusistheanswer
