(KJV) Mark chapter 5 verse 19
19 Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.
Sometimes you just gotta tell your testimony! Here's a little bit of one of mine.
I just want to thank The Lord for keeping me and my family safe. Some of you may know that I had a really rough pregnancy while carrying Gabriel back in 2007, and began to develop preeclampsia... I had to be omitted to the hospital and put on bed rest... 24hr monitoring, constant testing, and injections... I was beyond frustrated. The doctors were unable to keep my blood pressure under control... thus leading to Gabe being born 2 months premature. Prior to the decision of having a premature birth, I honestly had a sense of calm about it. For some reason, I knew that he would be fine even if he was born early... I guess I could feel the fact that he was a little independent fighter lol. (Which in fact, he is!)
I knew that he would be small being born at the time, but I wasn't expecting him to be only 2 lbs! :O He was soo tiny and needed to be monitored and fed through a tube... I didn't even get a chance to see him until almost a day after giving birth because I was being treated for ridiculously high blood pressure. :/ It was a very difficult time for Ty and I... Gabe had to spend his first month of life in the NICU until he reached a proper weight for us to be able to take him home, and even then, he went home with a monitor to make sure he didn't stop breathing. Well, our whole first year of marriage went through a lot lol. However, I thank The Lord for getting my family and I through that difficult time and for allowing Gabe to grow into a crazy smart, outgoing, energetic, & healthy child. You would never guess that he had such a rough start to life.
After having Gabe, I unfortunately kept the high blood pressure and was told that I would be on BP meds likely for the rest of my life. I had to monitor my blood pressure multiple times a day, and took meds for years... I was very frustrated with the situation especially since I was only in my 20's. Well, as of about two years or so now, I no longer have high blood pressure nor take any blood pressure medication. (I was very nervous while I was weaning off of the meds... it had been a part of my daily life for so long and I didn't want my body to freak out and have a stroke or heart attack!) But God said NO MORE and it is just that! Thank you Jesus!
God is too good NOT to give Him praise! What's a testimony of yours?
