Luke 8:45

As I sit here trying to catch up on my everyday Monday chores, I'm constantly reminded of His amazing healing powers & His ultimate grace & presence in our lives. Last night, both our sweet little boys had an awful tummy bug...both ends:-( While Caleb laid on Cruz's bedroom floor all night with Cruz, I was in our bathroom all night with Corban. During this time, the great Lord laid a verse on my was Luke 8:45. I said "Luke 8:45" over & over to myself all night so I would not forget it by morning. I couldn't wait to get my Bible out this morning to read the words that He spoke to me last night.

45"Who touched me?" Jesus asked. When they all denied it, Peter said, "Master, the people are crowding and pressing against you." 46 But Jesus said, " Someone touched me; I know that power has gone out from me." 47 Then the woman, seeing that she could not go unnoticed, came trembling and fell at his feet. In the presence of all the people, she told why she had touched him and how she had been instantly healed.

Amazing:-) Last night, I felt a similar parallel to this verse. I felt like the lady reaching out to Jesus so he would heal my babies. He then laid His comforting words on my heart letting me know that whatever the circumstance, if I reach out to Him, He will heal! There is nothing too big or too small for the Lord Jesus to take care of. This also reminds me of one of my very favorite Bible verses, Phillippians 4:6 "Do not worry about anything, instead pray about everything." Coincidence? I don't think so!! Also, this morning, my husband told me that his mom(the boy's nana) went to the ER last night because she was terribly weak & couldn't walk. When they got there, her heart rate was 45 bpm, whereas normally, it should range anywhere from 60-100. Her potassium levels were way too high...for a dialysis patient, this could present heart problems. As of now, she has been moved out of ICU to a normal room. Even though I didn't know any of this was going on last night when taking care of and praying for our boys, it's comforting to know of that special verse he laid on my heart:-) He will heal! All we have to do is reach out to Him and just ask:-)
