I went to make a hospital visit this afternoon and was blessed by the person I was visiting. You really have to know BetteAnn to appreciate my appreciation of her, she is in her early to mid-fifties, sings on our praise team, is a little lady in stature, but huge in her faith and ability to praise God...in spite of her health. BetteAnn has had over sixty surgeries, cannot bend her neck, and this week had her themis gland removed. She was placed on a ventilator following surgery on Tuesday and was supposed to be off of it...but today is still relying on the vent. Today when I went to see her she was in pain, struggling to breath, and yet believing God for healing. She laughed when something humerous was said, nodded when something spiritual was said and smiled when I reminded her that in spite of the dark ones attempts to take her out...she's still here...she's still standing! One day she told me that she had to get back to church to worship...worship is what keeps me alive she said! I've watched her sing, step down off the stage and dance before the Lord...when I knew she didn't feel like it. As I held two of her fingers and prayed, I felt myself breaking, tears wanted to form in my eyes...not because I feel sorry for her...No, she's going to be fine! But because in spite of all she's been through, she's determined to come through and share her testimony...she'll be standing when others have simply sat and quit! Something inside me once again gives thanks that God has allowed me to remain upright when I felt like laying down. My health has not been the best lately, I've felt lousy for some time...but I'm still standing! God has kept His word to me, I am healed, I'm being healed, and I will be healed...His Word promises that to me, and BetteAnn's healing prophesies it to me...The testimony of Jesus Christ is the spirit of prophecy! Whenever someone testifies of what God is doing or has done for them each of us have two choices: 1. We can say that should have been me! 2. We can say that is going to be me! Personally, I chose number 2! Thanks BetteAnn! I needed to see you today!
