Preparing For My Miracle

Hey Friends,

This is Odie reporting in from Tennessee. It is wonderful to be back in this beautiful state. It was here as a girl that I learned to love the beauty of God’s creation and I always look forward to visiting Tennesse. 

Tomorrow revival will begin at Beechfork Holiness Church. We will be here thru Wednesday night with our Tennessee family Pastor Herman and Sis. Margaret Woods. We love being with them and their sweet congregation! I look forward to a wonderful revival by faith. 

This Thursday and Friday, April 4th and 5th it is time for the Pentecostal Fire Youth Conference. You still have a few days to make your plans to be in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee for this year’s PFYC. We hope to see you there this week at the LeConte Center. Click Here to learn more about PFYC 2019.

Preparing For My Miracle 

Most of you know that I was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy (CP) when I was about 2 1/2 years old. The damage probably happened while I was being born. They say brain does not send the correct signals to my leg muscles to allow me to walk properly. I have relied on the aid of people and things for my mobility all of my life. I have never been able to walk on my own. I do believe that I am going to walk on my own and I have always dreamed of that day. 

My parents taught me of God’s healing power and from a young age. I have trusted and believed that God would heal me, but honestly, I never dreamed that I would wait over 30 years for my miracle to be completed. God has always been faithful to me! I cannot complain, because the Lord has been so good to me. I have had times of discouragement, but I have always found my refreshing in the Holy Spirit. 

I am a planner I like to know the schedule and have a general idea of how things are “supposed” to go. I would love to know the exact time of my healing, but God does not work by our time schedules. Therefore it is impossible to plan a date and a time for my healing. Whenever God has my miracle planned, then I am ready!

My imagination does get carried away at times wondering where, when and how my miracle will take place. I have imagined many different scenarios over the years of how it might happen. I have considered how can we share the news here on the blog. I do not have the answers to my many questions. Today I just wanted to alert you, please do not be shocked when you see the news of my healing. I believe in my heart that it is coming soon!

You may be wondering how I can declare that my healing is coming soon? I have had two special experiences during church services recently that I thought my healing was happening that very instant. It is impossible to know why that was not the appointed time for my full miracle, but I absolutely refuse to be discouraged. Instead, my faith is encouraged and strengthened. I believe my healing is right around the corner! I am excited about the future and what is to come!

New Years Eve 2010 my Dad preached on faith and that night I shouted the new year in believing that my healing was happening soon. January 1, 2011, I started a list on my phone of people that I had to let know when my miracle happens. I have carried that list with me for eight years. Occasionally I go over the list adding more names. I pulled my list out recently in anticipation that I will be needing it soon. 

Now I also began a mental list of places that I would like to go or things that I would like to do after I am healed. My life has been absolutely incredible! I have met so many people and I want to go see them all again, walk into the church and let them witness the miracle of God's healing power with their own eyes! That is going to be awesome.

I have been so blessed to have a ton of amazing experiences in life. I think it would be great to go back to revisit some places with the ability to walk. I have a few things that I would like to do that are practically impossible in my current physical condition. Today I am dreaming big and I am preparing for my miracle. 

This is just a little glimpse into my thinking lately. I appreciate you stopping by to visit with me today. Are you looking forward to what God has in store for you? Please allow me to encourage you to believe, plan and dream! I hope that our prayers are answered this very weekend.
