Today, is the 15th day since my recent surgery, and after 18 months of living with pain it is such a pleasure to not be overwhelmed with pain any more, Constant pain had sucked the life and enthusiasm out of me, I am so thankful to the Lord that His grace HAS BEEN AND STILL IS EVER SUFFIENT FOR ME. 2 Cor. 12:9 NKJV And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

I am not yet totally pain free, but it is so so much better and the enthusiasm for life is returning. My daily prayer has been “Lord I want to walk unaided and pain free and transition into a new ministry”.

The Lord has used these 18 months to do a work of grace in me, for which I will be eternally grateful, as the Lord has so quickened His Word to me over and over again, I have stood and stand in awe as the Holy Spirit has taken the Word and let it WORK in me, as well as showing me areas in my life that need positive change.

Sadly, I did not have a happy childhood, and never really had a relationship with my father or mother. Everything began to change for me when at the of 10 I was born again. During these past 18 months I have come to really appreciate God as MY FATHER, who the Bible tells me LOVES ME, and because he loves me has chastened me, so I may embrace more and more of my INHERITANCE IN CHRIST NOW. I am not an orphan but God’s son, and what an awesome family I am part of hallelujah.

There has been a large group of family members from around the world that has continually prayed for me, Most I will not see again here on earth but will thank them when I see them in eternity, and above all that Jesus ever lives to make intercession for the saints.

So it is with a heart of THANKFULNESS I pen this blog today and give the Lord ALL THE HONOUR AND THE GLORY.
