Is. 61:11 For as the earth brings forth its sprouts, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to sprout up, so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to sprout up before all the nations
On the morning after arriving home from hospital and hearing my daughter’s voice saying, ‘Good morning dad, see you later..’
You will never know how precious those words felt as I woke up in my own bed. I have now had two wonderful nights sleep in my own bed and space – I am so thankful to the Father for sparing my life and giving me more time on the earth. As I listened to the surgeons walk me through the details of the operation and what had happened, all I could see and hear through the clear pictures of my internal organs is the Father’s voice saying, ‘I am the God who heals you, I am the God that saved you, I am the God that can do ANYTHING..’
As I laid on the bed in A&E experiencing pain I thought was not possible for a human being and as Vel placed her iPhone by my ear playing an assortment of worship songs, my awareness of needing God was so much stronger than the morphine shots – that wasn’t having any affect at all. Yes, very thankful to Don Moen’s anointed songs I could hear as I was fading in and out of what felt like a ‘deep sleep’. The final morphine shot just knocked me out completely (though Vel said I was still groaning throughout this deep sleep).
Maybe, sometime later on I will relay the full experience, but for now I just want to give all praise, glory, thanks and honour to my loving Father that guided the hands of the surgeon to move my bowels (unharmed) back into place and sealed up the membrane that had become perforated. By the way, the bowels had travelled up my body and slipped through the hole in the membrane!!
On leaving the hospital, the surgeons asked if they could journal this medical phenomena as this is not something they have ever seen before and would like future doctors to be aware and study in the event of future or similar incidents. To be honest, through all the various recent conversations at the hospital, it does not matter right now how it happened, it does not matter right now that an investigation has to be done! All I know is that, the Father’s hands of grace was and is upon my life – my life which belongs to Him.
I do apologise that I cannot personally respond to each and every message, text and calls, but have read all and had Vel relay ALL messages and calls. We as a family are eternally thankful to you all – family and friends for your prayer support.
Now, I am under strict rest regime as my body and mind has been through so much over the last few days …. But, my Spirit is alive and stronger than before! Really want to thank my wonderful wife Velveta and my girls for their tender care!
