An Open Letter To My Readers
I worked with a woman who hands the size of a six year old girl. She wears extra-small gloves when she can find them. I prayed with her for carpal tunnel syndrome, she felt some tingling when I did, but when I ran into her a few days later, she was still experiencing some symptoms. My plan? Wait for the next opportunity to pray with her and teach her how to keep it.
You can pray with faith for a condition that you’ve seen healed a hundred times and still not see any changes in them. But It doesn’t mean you don’t have faith and it doesn’t mean they weren’t healed. It just means they didn’t feel anything happening at the time.
Staying out of deception comes by trusting others more than you trust yourself. This is easier said than done. First you have to care about whether or not you’re being deceived and that means entertaining the possibility that you might be wrong. Then you must believe it’s possible for someone to have more accurate discernment than you do. Such a person must have the guts to confront you and you must have the humility to allow God to reveal your own blindness. Since these things are not likely to occur with regularity – I believe most of us (myself included) are deceived rather often.
When my daughter is gone, I miss her a lot more than I realized.
I’ve always wanted to have a partner who was fluent in Spanish. Now I have one. He took a week off and things weren’t the same. I missed him. And now it looks like he might be moving to a different unit. The only constant is change. The only exception is God.
The fact that a patient is small (say, 6 months old) is no reason to be afraid when you’re in the ambulance with them.
More people should take advantage of golfing early in the morning instead of waiting till later in the day when the course is crowded.
Arizona has a lot of cool birds. They make enough noise that you can hear them inside the hospital. If you spend a few minutes outside listening to them instead of your fears and worries, you might not be so stressed out.
Using a propane torch is a quick way to rid your yard of weeds.
I’ve been feeling a bit ‘left out’ lately. While a lot of my pals are going around the country teaching people about healing. I’m sitting in my ambulance cat-napping between calls and being a dad and husband. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a tad jealous. I received some wonderful comfort from Corma Holmes, who heard God tell her about how I was feeling. She sent me a message and encouraged me and somehow she knew exactly what I was going through. My wife has also been a great encourager, reminding me that God has a special way of using me to reach people. I’m OK with that.
I have no plans to stop blogging. I only wish I had more time to write, because I’d write a lot more if I could. If you’re worried about me pulling the plug….don’t worry. I’m planning to be around for a long time.
