?

I didn't know what to title this post! I have run out of time to reply to all of you guys... I have tried as time has permitted but please know that I thank you all so much for the love you have shown and the prayers you are offering up on our behalf!

I am doing really well! I find myself honored and excited! Of course I am anxious a little bit just about being away from Carver for a few days. I will miss seeing his sweet little face!

But... I am honored and exciting (as strange as that may sound to some of you) that God is allowing me to go through this storm. I know I will be a much stronger person. I know my family will be stronger. I am excited about the blessings that He is going to bestow upon me, my family, and hopefully others by me going through all of this! I am excited about all of the things that I am going to learn through this process and about how much closer I will be to my God and Savior!

Thank you all again for loving me and for the prayers! I am so blessed to have so many people love and care for me and my family! I love you all so much and so many of you I have never even met! :) You guys take care of yourselves! Michael will be updating on his blog and as soon as I am lucid enough... I will be catching up with you myself! :) I love you all!

Kelley, I hadn't checked your blog in a while. I just read about what you're going through. Girl, you have a strong faith in God and have a lot of people out there praying for you!! I have been praying for you all morning since I read about this. I've been praying in the spirit for you! I'm not sure what time your surgery was/is but I've been praying for the Lord to guide the hands of the surgeons and for protection over you and that no unnecessary procedure would have to take place and that God would protect you from that!!

I encourage you to read all the healing scriptures in the bible. Read how the many times when Jesus touched and healed people, when he would say "according to YOUR faith be it unto you". Have faith in God and his promises of divine health and healing in your body. Believe what you're asking for and confessing that God has ALREADY given it to you! AMEN!!! But without faith it is impossible to please HIM (GOD), for he who comes to God must believe (not doubt) that he is God and that he is a rewarder of those who DILIGENTLY seek him. Be encouraged, God is faithful that promised! A sparrow doesn't fall to the ground unnoticed by HIM, just think how much more he notices the needs of his children!!
When fears and thoughts come against you a good verse to quote is 2Corinthians 10:4-5 "(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ." I sometimes just quote that over and over again when I'm going through times where fear and negative thoughts are trying to come in and I need to filter those thoughts out! Another good one is 2 Timothy 1:7 "For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a SOUND MIND." Also read 1John chapter 4. And read in the gospels on Jesus' healing the sick. And all through the bible on instances of God's healing! I just want to encourage you to soak yourself in God's word, read it all throughout the day, confess, believe, act on it and Thank the Lord for your healing! You shall be satisfied with good, by the fruit of your mouth.
You're in my prayers!! Stay strong and believe without a doubt, that God has already preformed the healing in you!! Praise the Lord!! (big hug) Jessica

Hello, my love. I was following Michael's blog earlier and realized I MISSED this!!! I'm just so happy things went smoothly today... You have been with me in my thoughts and prayers ALL day long, so prominently! I gathered my kids together last night and we prayed for you and MY VOICE didn't crack ONCE! {That's me REALLY giving it my all! hee hee} I love you, sweet pea! We'll continue to keep you RIGHT THERE!

Kelley,

I just read today's blog and then had to back-tack to get more of 'the story' as I am new to your blog. I want to tell you, as your sister in Christ, I WILL be praying for you. Thank you for sharing your journey with us....may it impact MANY lives....and thank you for speaking the truth about our Lord, He is often so misunderstood and blamed in a crisis.

Some words of encourage my BFF emailed to me yesterday, I trust they will encourage you too.

'To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.' When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. 'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.'

Rest in His Grip,
Sandi Brubacher (from Canada)

Kelley,
I've been reading the posts on your's and Michael's blog. Glad to hear that your surgery went well! After having a complete hysterectomy last year, I understand the "why's" that have been going through your head. The path that you are on can change in the blink of an eye, but God has a plan. My prayer is that God will give you peace about all this and healing....both physical and emotional. If you need anything, please don't hesitate to ask. I hope you are feeling better soon!

Dana Gustafson said...

Hey Kelley girl, SO glad that everything is going well. You are strong and you are faithful and you have so many caring souls supporting you through this time. We got your back, girlie! Hang in there! xoxo,Dana

Kelley, girl, you are such a huge inspiration. Your testimony will travel SO far and wide! And I adore your steadfast faith... Just want you to know we're praying for you! *hugs!* Keep smiling, dear!

Hi Kelley! I've popped in here and over at your husband's blog to stay caught up. You have been in my thoughts and heart everyday. We are all here rooting for you, cheering you on, and sending prayers up! What an amazing positive, faithful, and strong spirit you have! I met a woman in the pharmacy yesterday with my daughter. She had a mask on...tight. After my daughter looked up at her, she sweetly told her that she wasn't sick, but that she just had a heart transplant and so she was trying to Not get sick, to keep those germs away. Then she offhandedly mentioned that she's also on chemo. I couldn't see half her face because of her mask, but I knew she was smiling. I could feel her amazing spirit. And she reminded me of you! When we left, I told her, "You just keep kicking butt!" She said thank you and reminded me to enjoy every precious moment of life. I told her I would. And since you seem to have that same strong rockin' spirit, I thought I'd say the same, "You just keep kicking butt, Kelley!!" And we'll keep cheering you on!! :>:>
