New Concept

I was chatting with one of my CF friends and she inspired a cool idea upon me tonight. She is still in the process of getting her blog up and going....you can find the link to her blog on my blog list under Wholesome Talk. So check it out. Anyway, the concept of what she is doing with her blog is neat and so I have chosen to adopt some of her ideas and incorporate it into my blog posts once in a while. So this post will be linked to a scripture that I find has helped me throughout my journey or a scripture that inspires or provokes a thought/feeling. Something around those lines.

I will start with my favorite scripture which I hold very dear.

2 Kings 20:1-7

1 In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And the prophet Isaiah the son of Amoz came to him, and said unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Set thine house in order; for thou shalt die, and not live.
2 Then he turned his face to the wall, and prayed unto the Lord, saying,
3 I beseech thee, O Lord, remember now how I have walked before thee in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in thy sight. And Hezekiah wept sore.
4 And it came to pass, afore Isaiah was gone out into the middle court, that the word of the Lord came to him, saying,
5 Turn again, and tell Hezekiah the captain of my people, Thus saith the Lord, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will heal thee: on the third day thou shalt go up unto the house of the Lord.
6 And I will add unto thy days fifteen years; and I will deliver thee and this city out of the hand of the king of Assyria; and I will defend this city for mine own sake, and for my servant David’s sake.
7 And Isaiah said, Take a lump of figs. And they took and laid it on the boil, and he recovered.

I was led to this scripture by the spirit. I was searching for answers to my prayers and turned to the scriptures... as I read this chapter I felt a comfort come over me and felt as though the promise the Lord makes to King Hezekiah was also promised to me. It's a hard feeling to express in words, and some may even think it all sounds crazy, but I heard the words from the scripture spoken to me and knew I was going to be healed. Just as Hezekiah prayed unto the Lord that he had 'done which is good in thy sight'. . .I had said those very words in my prayers many nights. I knew I was meant to read this scripture. . . .

I was put on a ventilator and I am amazed at how I felt this promise was also given to me, because on the 3rd day after I was put on the ventilator, I received new lungs and was healed. I still had tough times ahead of me, but just as I had Faith that this was my promise. . . I received my miracle. Hezekiah was promised 15 years, I have Faith that I too will get 15 years. I don't ask for more than I need, but 15 years would be amazing~

My Testimony

It's hard to put into words how I feel toward my Heavenly Father and the Savior. I have so many reasons to be thankful for what I have gone through & endured. Because of my trials in life I have gained a strong testimony of Faith. I have always had Faith in the Lord and in Prayer. As I faced the decision to get a double lung transplant I had to rely on faith to make the choice.....By listening to the spirit, I was guided to Pittsburgh where my life was saved. I believe prayers are answered. I have always tried to follow the philosophy of this: If I do what the Lord expects of me, he will give me what I want & need. That has always worked for me. I Believe in MIRACLES..........My life on this earth is a miracle- I prayed on my knees for years to be healed from my lung disease. I knew that through a priesthood blessing (if it was God's will) I could be healed. So many times I thought he would heal me instantly...my faith was tested as I continued to get sick and no cure was in my future. I turned to prayer....I talked to my Heavenly Father, I cried to him and he heard me and he healed me by guiding me to Pittsburgh and guiding the surgeons hands. I learned humility, and thankfulness. I realized that we need others to lean on and we are supposed to strengthen each others testimonies. I learned that the hardest things we'll do are usually the greatest blessings in our life. I was able to experience a lot of things during surgery and I know I had comforting angels in my ICU room. THe Lord knows each of us by name and he will never leave our side. We need to remember to stay close to him and have Faith that he is watching over us. I know this for a fact! I know that following the gospel will bring us true happiness- the world will tell us otherwise, but I know I am truely happy & living the gospel has brought me that. Amen
