On Thursday last week, I shared with a my friend J, who we were praying with,how thankful I am that ThreeApples have been enjoying good health. I was especially thankful for KApple who has not had any asthma attacks or random viruses that kids tend to pick from school. We prayed and thanked God for this.
Three days ago, KApple had slept on our bed. When I went to carry her so i could transfer her to her bed, she was burning hot… a fever that has persisted since.
Tell me, how would you feel if after spending time in prayer thanking God for His goodness towards you, the same thing you are thanking Him for turns negative… like in this case KApple?
Would this discourage you? Would you doubt God’s goodness? Would you question God as to why He choose such a time to allow your baby to be sick?
Well, I chose to go back to God, and thank Him again for ThreeApples good health and to declare healing upon KApple. Again I went back to the fact that KApple belongs to Him and despite the circumstances, He still loved her and had her best interests at heart.
I realized that this was also an opportunity to teach KApple to pray for her healing and to see God answering her prayer would be such a great step for her in believing that God hears us and answers us when we call upon him.
Isn’t it great for children to learn such truths from a tender age?
To learn to call on their Father in Heaven?
To see that our healing comes from the Lord?
KApple is much better now and this morning she prayed for me, who also caught whatever she was suffering from, and told God ‘thank you Lord as you heal mummy, please bless her’
The joys of mother hood. *teary eyed*
