Don't you just love testimonies of the greatness of His love. Today I heard one of the most endearinig I've heard yet. A mother of an eight year old had e-mailed a friend on Easter Sunday and stated that her daughter had fallen off the swing and was hurt, so they rushed her to the hospital. She is 8 years old, very active and vivrant, a sweet little girl. At the hospital she had an MRI done and found that she had a tumor in her kidney. I can not recall the type, but it's cancerous.

During the duration of the treatments the little girl went through, many family and friends from all around had travele to be there while the little one went through her surgery to have the tumor removed. Mom commented to her friend that she couldn't believe all the negative messages she received. Her friend told her that her husbands and her first thoughts were, "why her Lord, why her?" The mother said, "Why not?"

You see, the mother's faith in God is so strong, her belief being in the Lord the way we hope to be. She stated that they were blessed as the daughter fell off the swing and hurt herself, and at that time had no idea that she had this tumor. There were no signs of it. By the grace of God, she had that minor accident to find it! By the grace of God, this little one had it caught in time. She is handling the chemo treatments well. There has only been one time she got sick due to missing some medication.

It's funny, so unique how He works in our lives. Pastor has talked about negativity being a downfall, and positive being the works of the Lord. This mom instead of looking at the negative aspects of what her daughter was going through, dwelled on the positive.

Think of it this way; by mom having a positive attitude, she is able to transfer this to her daughter. Her daughter picks up on it--and we all know that positive thinking helps us heal faster--takes on a positive attitude and is kept as cheery as possible and walks through her trials in a much better position than if she had negative vibes around her and picked up on them.

By having the positive thinking/behavior, the enemy was blocked. Had it been reversed, the doors and windows would have been wide open for the enemy to walk in and go to work on your exposed soul.

Did this make you stop and really think? Did this make you want to change your outlook on life? I know it sure did me. I've been working on this very thing anyhow, but hearing this, the strength of a mother who could have caved to desperation instead lifted her daughter up to the Lord. Praise the Lord for this wonderful mom and her insight.

What a great testimony, don't you think? If this doesn't open eyes to His greatness and faithfulness, I don't know what will.

Be Blessed. Make a ripple and watch it grow and grow and grow (thank you Hon for this idea). Remember to always P.U.S.H. {{{Hugs}}}
