Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And all that is within me, bless His holy name.
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And forget none of His benefits;
Who pardons all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases;
Who redeems your life from the pit,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion;
Who satisfies your years with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle.
– Psalm 103:1-5
We take God at His Word when He promises to heal our diseases, and we see it happening every day in Abbie as she recovers from a near-drowning accident on May 3, 2004.
There are many tools He has provided us along the way that have helped Abbie in this process. Although many have been developed by man, we believe each of them has been a gift from God at just the time we needed them. This truly has been a journey of discovery, so to document that properly, I have kept in place previous entries from 2007, so that you can see how things have evolved. I will be updating this page over the next few months, adding all we have learned in the last few years.
Very early in Abbie’s journey a precious friend had a comforting vision of Abbie. He was reluctant to share it with us, but finally did so. He saw Abbie walking hand-in-hand with Jesus, smiling and having a great time, as if they were walking in a park. As the view expanded, however, our friend could see that they were not walking in a park but in a deep dark valley, and behind Abbie and Jesus he could see masses and masses of people following. She looked back at everyone as if to say, “C’mon…this is not scary at all!”
The little girl who said, hours before her accident, “Jesus keeps me safe! Jesus keeps me safe!” knew what she was talking about. Her spirit, trusting in Him has led us through some dark valleys, just as our friend saw. I believe she is paving a path for many to regain health, wellness, and above all…HOPE!
These are the tools we have used and information we have gained in our adventure:
There is no doubt in our minds that Abigail would not have survived her initial injury if it had not been for the prayers of thousands of people around the world, most of whom we’ve never met. It is impossible … Continue reading
My son, attend to my words, incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all … Continue reading
So much of what we have learned has come from Dr. Jerry Tennant, MD. Because I reference him and his work so often, I thought it would be wise to tell you more about him, his background and his contributions … Continue reading
Our bodies run on electricity, which is clearly seen in EKGs of the heart, or in the EEG tests of the brain I dreaded so much. While western medicine is good at using the body’s electrical status as a diagnostic … Continue reading
This section is going to be much more detailed than many of you need. However, I am writing it with the mother of a Gtube-fed, recovering child in mind.
Considering supplements is like being a child in a colossal candy store, it all looks wonderful but eventually becomes overwhelming. We have tried a fair number of things, but certainly not “everything that comes down the pike.”
