When my twin was diagnosed with MS three years ago, she could not walk. Lesions cluttered her brain and spine. The pain was so intense that she could not stand to feel the hospital sheets against her legs. Since then she has endured daily painful injections, monthly infusions, and a myriad of MS symptoms.
But today, she walked over three miles in the National MS Society Walk in Boston. Each step was taken with the love and support of family and friends (and bloggy pals of mine she has never even met –THANK YOU!)
Lexi, her daughter, wore our motto proudly: Don’t MS With Me!
This weekend my eyes were opened to the power of God to mend.
It started with my sweet friend Lianna sharing a book with me of communication e-mails that were sent out after she was in a car accident that very nearly took her life. The cover of the book quotes “Come and see what God has done…” Page after page I see His healing hand on her as He knit her back together throughout a long recovery process. Her life is such a miracle.
Even though she still has to fight, I see Him mending my sister. Thank you, God! Because three years ago, today would not have been possible. I see Him mending my daughter, Rhema. (She did so well today!) I am surrounded by walking miracles, their very lives make it impossible to doubt the ability and will of God to heal.
Even me. Even us. He’s mending.
With tender mercy and a delicate hand, He is patching up our hearts, renewing our minds and bodies, making us usable by repair. What a miracle!
