Update and then some.....

First I want to thank all of you for praying for my mother. Her situation continues so please continue to pray and I thank you all so much for caring and being there.

I went to the Dr's on Friday, I had to see a specialist about an ongoing problem I have been having. He did a test and the results were not good at all. He put me on a more medication and I'm suppose to be doing a procedure, but it's not working. I also have to go for another very involved test on the 23rd. Please pray for me that the Lord will heal me from this affliction. I would be lying if I said I wasn't scared and I know it will be fine. I am scared and I don't know it will be fine. I do trust the Lord and I am fighting my fears.

I think what bothers me the most is that I am needed for the care of three other people and there isn't any other family. I don't want anything to happen to me for their sakes. I know the Lord knows my situation and he knows they all need me and I pray that he will give me another miracle and take away this affliction and heal me so that I may continue to do my work for those who depend on me in Jesus name I ask this. Amen.

Dear Katzie

You continue to be in my prayers. Keep your eyes firmly fixed on Jesus sister and He will carry you through this.

Loving Father bless this family. Please may health be restored to Katzie's mother. May Katzie experience Your closeness during her medical tests and if it's Your will may any health issues be resolved. May all Katzie's fears be diminished in the knowledge that You are a God who loves with an everlasting love.

God bless you Katzie

Appreciate the update Katzie. I am praying that your need's will be met, everyone of them.

I hear your concern for others, and I am praying that a word in the 'right ear' will cause that need to be met alleviating your concern.

Medical science is so advanced today I am praying you will come out as a new woman, getting back to the place you used to be. Not that I restrict the LOrd in your situation, O no, He can do it in a moment, and he often does. But whatever, I am asking Jesus to meet every need in your life at this time........Amen

Hi Katzie. Seems like when it rains it pours. Keep your head up and continue to pray and believe. I have no great words of wisdom for you but I can pray.
Dear Lord, thank You for letting me come to You in prayer for dear katzie and her mother. I know You are The Great Physician, and You are a loving and merciful God. Lord I pray that You will make Katzie and her mother well again. Lord please give strength and courage to Katzie during this hard time for her Lord. Please place peace in her heart and comfort as well as she faces each challenge that comes her way. Lord I am looking to You as well as is Katzie to provide for her and her mother and to hold them close under your wing. Thank You Lord for all that You are and all that You have to give to us. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
Love you Katzie. Wendy

For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:
But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.
1Peter 1:24-25

Psalm 103:14-16 For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.
As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.
For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.


Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. Ecclesiastes 12:7

All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.
Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth?
Wherefore I perceive that there is nothing better, than that a man should rejoice in his own works; for that is his portion: for who shall bring him to see what shall be after him?
Ecclesiastes 3:20-22

Sister Katzie,

thank you for keeping us updated and also for continuing to ask for prayer.

Can I share something with you?

The above Scriptures tell us something. I don't know how many times I have begun worrying about 'my' needing to stay alive, in order for loved ones to be looked after. It probably goes through everyone's mind at least once..... they need me! What will happen to them if I die?

But, although we can assist others while we live, it is only ever the Lord Jesus that anyone needs. Now, there are many unbelievers out and about, and yet they eat and most are reasonably healthy and can look after themselves..... what they miss is that it is the Lord who keeps them, whether they believe it or not. Remember He is not willing that any should perish......

and this perishing, is the life they can either gain in Christ, eternal life, of lose without Him.
The flesh passes. We must accept that.

So, who would look after the loved ones?

How often we see the tragic death of parents in vehicle accidents.... what of the children? Do they then shrivel up and die? No. This sort of tragedy does happen, but in such cases it is because their parents have died the same death, in lands of famine and corrupt governments.

The point being, Katzie, that it is not your task to keep the folks you love. That is the Lord's task of love. While you live He may work through you..... but ultimately it is His problem, not yours, and by worrying about not being able to tend to loved ones if you are either dead of physically unable, will only serve to weaken your faith.

If the Lord be willing, I will be healed. If the Lord be willing my mother will be healed.... and if He calls either of you home, may His will be done. I say this to encourage you to look only to Him, and not to the circumstances that leave you worrying, my sister.

I have been there at times, like I said, and always He reminds me that I need to get off His throne and let Him handle it. It's called trusting Him. If we are willing, He will give us the trust we need to overcome the fears that fly in our face and tear at our minds and worry our hearts.

I encourage you my sister, to accept that Jesus is Lord of your life and those you love and care for, and rest in Him, trusting He will perform much more than you and I ever could.

The number one thing is Jesus Christ .... be more concerned about yourself and others knowing you and they can trust Him with your lives than anything else... for all else passes.

Bless you Katzie ....>

I will continue to pray in Jesus name

Wow....thank all of you for your prayers and Br. Bear....how did you know the talking I needed to have today, for I have spent the entire day in fear and worrying because I am not getting better. Thank you so much for what you said, it means a lot to me for another Christian to admit they too have had these fears and what they have had to learn.

I knew everything you said to me and I even said it to my mother today that there is only one who can help us and that is Jesus and she agreed. I know these things but when one's symptoms are getting worse and it's a life threatening situation I don't think I'd be human if I didn't worry just for a moment. But that's it....I need to let it go and keep my faith fixed on Jesus.

I just have always had this problem my entire life of worrying more about others then myself. I don't even want my dog to have to suffer my loss as he is so attached to me. I have extreme empathy and I feel other people's pain. I can't even watch the news because it makes me cry seeing people hurt and so forth. I can't even watch the commercial that shows animals being hurt and needing help. Anyway, I digress...... I know there is a purpose for everything.

It is wrong for me to think I am smarter then God and think things like my family will just fall apart if I die, because each one of them is disabled in different ways and I am their caregiver and helper. Thank you for reminding me that He knows their needs and He will not forsake them.

Keep praying for me as I am still anxious about the medical stuff, the proceedures I will have to endure and so on.....

Thank you again to all of you praying for me, I am a huge believer in prayer!!!!!

God Bless all of you!!!!!!

Katzie
