That time my Dad was really sick…

We read this scripture at church about Jesus’ healing. It’s about two separate healing’s.

I remember when my Dad was in the hospital with I.T.P., a bleeding disorder where your immune system attacks the platelets in your blood. Platelets help your blood clot. He had bloody gums, nose and so on. He was in the hospital for a month.

I was so heart broken to see my Dad, who has been so strong and hardworking, helpless and sick laying in the hospital in bed. I’m very close to my parents. My Dad is very self sufficient and hard working, I’ve seen him for 12 hour days, 7 days straight growing up. He is a handy man and can do anything in the house, he could fix the whole house up if wanted to! I was a Daddy’s girl growing up. To see him sick broke me.

My Mom, and I were desperately praying. We came across this scripture where Jesus heals a women that had a bleeding disorder for 12 years.

This scripture brought me so much peace like God was speaking to me.

My Dad got better, out of the hospital, and 13 years later has never been that sick again.

Thank you Lord Jesus for healing my Dad when we asked you and revealing yourself to us. Thank you for giving him a good life full life years later, so he can be with his family. In Jesus name amen.

Mark 5:21-29 New International Version (NIV)

Jesus Raises a Dead Girl and Heals a Sick Woman

21 When Jesus had again crossed over by boat to the other side of the lake, a large crowd gathered around him while he was by the lake. 22 Then one of the synagogue leaders, named Jairus, came, and when he saw Jesus, he fell at his feet. 23 He pleaded earnestly with him, “My little daughter is dying. Please come and put your hands on her so that she will be healed and live.” 24 So Jesus went with him.

A large crowd followed and pressed around him. 25 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years. 26 She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse. 27 When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, 28 because she thought, “If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed.” 29 Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering. 

This was my churches awesome service this Sunday:

My Favorite Bible verse.

For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. Romans 1:20 

I love this verse because I have struggle with my faith, and having doubt but the awe and beauty of creation makes me think that there must be a loving creator. Being in nature brings peace to my soul.

I want some kind of tattoo that encompasses this scripture.

I’ve never seen the wind. I see the effects of the wind, but I’ve never seen the wind. There’s a mystery to it.” ~Billy Graham
