Praise the LORD! Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.
When we choose thankfulness in the middle of the trial, the power and presence of God breaks through to bring us victory.
Every week, Hagee Ministries receives messages from individuals who partner with us or who need prayer for difficult situations. One particular letter came from a mother to ask for prayer for her daughter, Jesse.
Jesse was a healthy, happy teenager who joined her youth group for a much-anticipated ski trip. While hurtling down a hill, she had a terrible accident that broke her neck and several vertebrae and left her with a life-threatening head injury.
The first letter begged, “Please pray that my daughter doesn’t die.” And we did.
For several weeks, Jesse teetered between life and death, bedridden and without much hope.
Every week, Jesse’s mom sent an update: “I’m thankful that my daughter is still alive. I’m thankful that doctors are still giving me hope.”
Six weeks later, she reported: “I’m thankful that my daughter has blinked her eyes.”
Five months later, she revealed: “I’m thankful that she moved her hand.”
Ten months later, she rejoiced: “I’m thankful that she has wiggled her toes.”
After fourteen months in the hospital, Jesse’s mother sent a jubilant note: “I am thankful that my daughter is walking out of the hospital!”
Give God glory! Every day is a gift from our Father. Our praise will break through to victory!
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. Give thanks to the God of the impossible Who does all things well!
