It always astounds me how God shows His beauty and sweetness in difficult times. This particular story showed me how He was not concerned as I was about this problem, but that He is so in control on that throne, that entertaining my baby was more of a priority to Him instead.
When my baby was 8 months old she developed a bad middle ear infection, which resulted in loads of crying, fevers, unwillingness to eat and obviously a lot of pain.
The first course of antibiotics never cleared the infection up, which the Doctors were puzzled about as it was a strong course.
So off we started on the second lot and I really prayed for a healing from God as I did not want to resort to grommets!
Everyday throughout the day, during work and whatever I was doing, I would silently pray for healing for my little one. One verse from Malachi 4:2 I find particularly beautiful is “…the Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings…” and I always included it in my prayers. It really conjures up a beautiful picture in my head!
So, the one day, while playing with Jordan, she kept looking past me, upwards and laughing and smiling. When I looked to what she was focusing on, there was nothing there, just a blank wall! I remember thinking, ‘freaky’, but she obviously found something amusing. And I forgot about it.
That night, I had a dream. An angel came to me and said, “Jordan was laughing and smiling because Jesus was showing her what the wings look like!”
Isn’t that most beautiful? Here I was constantly worrying about an ear infection yet God was not the least bit concerned because He had it all under control – His Son did it all! He instead found joy in playing with Jordan! Hallelujah!
How I pray that I can model Christ in this way – to completely leave my troubles and burdens at His feet, and just be free to enjoy Christ for all He is. What a way to get through life’s troubles! While we sit and worry, He relaxes on His throne – we can find joy in His presence instead!
God has it all under control. Lets’ enjoy Him always!
Amen Jesus – thank You for my sweet memories!
