Prayer Request Update

Keep watching and praying that you may not enter into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. – Matthew 26:41

Can I first tell you how blown away I am by all of the prayers you have offered on behalf of my family. Thank you will just never be enough. I am unable to spend time answering each comment as I used to, but please know that each comment left touched me, moving me to tears. Your care and concern, encouragement and assurances brought me a very real sense of God with skin on. You are fulfilling the law of Christ. And I am humbled to be a part of each of your lives. I love you.

Brian’s hand is healing very well, thanks to your prayers! Praise God, he can move his thumb and pinky in normal range now and is even losing some of his numbness on that hand. Our house has been set to rights by kids pitching in. It’s helping them, I think, to feel they’re contributing and helping in situations they normally have no control over.

Yesterday I ended up at the doctor with another “reaction”, only this time I had started no new meds. So now the games begin and we do our best to figure out what’s causing this.

My doctor called today. 

He said that all bloodwork was clear, except for low hemoglobin, and that I am anemic. He’s letting my regular doctor handle that when I see him on the 27th.

They want pictures of how bad it got, which thankfully I have and can bring with me for the next visit. He said it’s possible that this is not an allergic reaction at all, but part of a disease process, so I’m to go back in if it gets worse in the meantime so they can chart it with photos and maybe get more clues about the origins of this process, depending on what changes they see.

So I am staying away from any “new” anything… foods, meds, soaps, detergents, etc. until the 27th. I am also keeping the benadryl going.

I hurt and I’m afraid, but at the same time, I hear, “Just trust Me, watch what I’m doing.” I feel a great sense of anticipation. Through this week, we have had provisions sent, family meetings that went smoother than expected, paths appear that have made things easier. Our God is an Awesome God. He is a Good Father. And He is always with us, always answering, always working for our good.


Holy King, I cannot thank you enough for these amazing people you’ve placed into my life. I love them. Thank You for Your powerful presence in our lives, and for answering prayers in such a tangible way. We love You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen…

  2. Oh Shelly, no wonder you’ve been on my mind and in my prayers. Sometimes it just feels like the attacks are relentless, but we press into the Lord that much more desperately to grab ahold of all He desires to bless and cover us with knowing we are more than conquerors. Your faith is strong and you are being stretched, but amazingly sustained through that faith and the power of prayers. I feel such a connection with you, both being a sister in Christ, but also one who knows how hard it is to suffer and let go of all things.

    I was playing Christy Nockles “Healing is in Your Hands” the other day over and over again and singing it with you in mind. Enjoy, my Sister. I will keep praying for your sustainment and the peace that surpasses all understanding. Here is the link:

    Much love, prayers, thoughts and tons of hugs, Tammy
