I've had a very difficult time these past 24hrs. I had to stay in the hospital with my son. He was having an EEG. We needed to check  and try to find out why he's been having migraines and seizures.
It's so sad and hard to see your baby suffering. It's the worse feeling we can have.
My husband and I have been praying for him and we know that God is in control.
This morning, the doctor came to give some information regarding the test and about my son's future treatment.
He thinks that he has some kind of epilepsy, something on his brain waves is causing him to have seizures.
As he was describing what he thinks, how he's gonna spend the weekend working on a report for the neurologist, how treatment could be, etc.... I was robbed! Right there! In the hospital!!!!
The devil came and robbed my joy and my peace. He stole it!!! Suddenly I became very sad, worried, I felt like a truck had hit me and I felt like starting crying right there.
I was so sad.
As we are preparing to be discharged, all these thoughts came to my mind. What's gonna happen now? How many more doctors am I gonna have to take him to? How much medicine is going to have to take? Is this forever? What am I gonna do?
I than called my husband to come and pick us up and there is something about being with my husband...I looked at him and as I entered the car, I broke down in tears.
The kids were asking "Mom, what's going on? Mom? Are you OK?" I just replied "I'll be fine, I got hurt". And I cried my eyes out.
The devil was so happy about it! He did it!!!!! He was able to shake me up!! Hooray!
How many times he does that to you and me? He never gives up!
As I started to think over everything that had happened this day, the Holy Spirit of God, sweet and sensitive, my best friend, came to me. And He filled me with peace.
 I felt His presence, I felt on my knees and started to sing:
 " Faithful God
You hold my life secure
All my days are Yours.
I believe,
My God is like a fire defending me
The Bible says that:
"The joy off the Lord is my strength"!!!!(Nehemiah 8:10)
And it is!!!!!! I started to praise Him for
"We know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose" Romans 8:28
I declared His Word that say:
 "If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?" Romans 28:32
So I told the Devil to SHUT UP!!!!  For the Lord gave me back my joy, my peace and my strength!!!
I know we'll have a long road ahead of us. But the devil will no longer steal nothing for me!!!!
And that's my message for today!
I wish I had something nice to tell you. Like I've won a million dollars! Or maybe some kind of prosperity word for you! But this is life! Today we are fine! Tomorrow is unexpected!
One thing is for sure!!!!!
"In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,  neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. " Romans 28:37-39.
I hope this will encourage you today!!!!
I'll leave you my worship song of today. He is faithful!!!

Now I'm just gonna enjoy my family. Thanks for all the encouraging messages.
