Be encouraged

aliyah16A couple weeks ago we had a scare with Aliyah again. The girls have been sick on and off with the usual cold of the season. Aliyah was completely fine the night before but woke up alittle crankier and was not her happy self. We were all off of school and work that day due to the MLK holiday. I was finishing up making breakfast, when Dan says to me something I didn’t think I would ever hear again, “babe her stomach is retracting!” I calmly walked over to see our little girl sucking in breath and you only knew she was struggling because her abdomen was retracting rapidly and hard. I think I went numb inside but we both knew to call the doctor immediately. Thankfully the doctor’s office was open and I quickly got dressed to head in to the office–not knowing what the outcome would be! See just last year, one week to date, Aliyah was hospitalized with the same symptoms and was diagnosed with RSV at 4 months of age. Facing the Storm through Rest
That was a very difficult time for our family and as I buckled her into the car seat those memories stricken with fear and worry soon flooded my mind.  See in the last few weeks here, Dan and I have been really stretching in our faith, we have been going through a time of facing the storms that life just throws at you from nowhere.  So to have this come at us out of nowhere again felt a bit like the last straw.  But as a parent, do you ever get those moments of where you throw your hands in the air and give up or say I can’t take this anymore? Not really.
Aliyah did well on the nebulizer treatment that lasted one week and she is back to her happy, friendly, want to be just like my big sissies-self.  We didn’t have to go to the hospital and honestly coming home from the doctor’s that day, you would never know she wasn’t feeling well.
Going through this brief battle with Aliyah the lesson I learned is yes things can come at you full speed ahead out of nowhere, you might even be blind sighted from how fast things can change but how do you react in a crisis?  Do you give up? Do you assume the worse results? Do you look at it as a punishment? Do you assume well this is how it’s going to be?
See I really didn’t know what to post as a blog today.  But I feel in my heart I wanted to share with my readers whatever crisis you may be facing, YOU will get through it.  I know many of my readers may not believe in Christ.  But I’m telling you when life hits you down hard and fast–try Him–what do you have to lose?  Life is no joke at times, it can really leave you stressed, worked up, angry, bitter, reaching for the next best thing.  But from my heart, I encourage you just try Christ.  It’s not as difficult as you may think.  You will never be alone nor will you ever feel unloved.

Be encouraged today in whatever you maybe facing…God knows and He hears and answers prayers!

    Shivaulie I continue to be so proud of you for the Mom you are always putting Jesus first in every situation. Its so uplifting to watch Aliyah praying before bed time and saying “Amen” at the end of each prayer at her tender age. Jesus will honor that.

    Proud Mama!

    Shivaulie:

    The Lord says that He will never leave us nor forsake us but He will be with us to the end. No matter what the enemy throws at us Jesus can and will turn it around for our good. Aliyah and the entire family are in the hands of our Lord and He will take care of us no matter the circumstances. May the Lord plant a hedge of protection around her now and always. Trust in the Lord always!

    Love, Mom

    Hi Shivauley,I cannot help but think what a wonderful Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, we serve.  What may have meantto cause panic and fear to both you and Dan, Jesus turned it around to be a great testimony of His love and care for families.  We just have to trust, believe and look to Him and He will keep us in perfect ‘peace’all the time.Aunt Kay
