Anticipation

I'm putting myself out there but I can't care. I'm so full of anticipation and passion for what the Lord has spoken that I'm willing to look like a flake that doesn't hear God.

Last Thursday we started the process to get Miles a wheelchair. The measurments have been taken, insurance will be billed any day and the colors of the wheelchair have been picked out. I'm sayng that the Lord told me yesterday that Miles was not going to be needing the wheelchair by the time it comes. Jesus Christ will heal my son before that chair is delivered to my house.

I've been feeling this anticipation for awhile now. I've just been expecting to walk in on Miles and him be running around. If you were to see him this morning it would be hard to agree with me but I'm telling you the Lord is about to do something Extraordinary!

Yesterday afternoon I was praying that God would begin to prepare me for he's about to do. I prayed that he would prepare our church for what we're supposed to do to thank Him. Also, we need wisdom about who we're supposed to contact. I don't know. I was just praying about details that I've never dared to dream about and then I felt the Lord tell me about how Miles was not going to need that wheelchair because he was going to be healed by then. Yesterday during "naptime" I couldn't sleep because I was so full of excitment and wonder.

What will it be like when I see my son running around the house and chasing my other children? Will I laugh, cry, fall on my face, scoop him all up and dance before the Lord? Who will I call first? How long will it be before I grasp all that God has done? How will our church worship as they see "their boy" walk in front of the church? How many will I get to tell that, "It was all worth it!"?

There have been so many "extra" people in my home the last couple of weeks and when I see them I just think about how they are here for a purpose because that's one more person and "their people" that will be able to testify to the miracle that God is about to do in Miles.

The wheelchair could take 6 weeks to a couple of months depending on insurance. I will enjoy my baby for a few more weeks until he turns into a little boy.

Thanks for letting me in on your days. I feel so blessed that you decided to share what thet Lord told you about Miles. I just started crying and I can't stop. I just feel like I don't want to miss any events where the Wilson's are in attendance for fear that I might not get to see it! I am so excited I can't wait! Wow. I need to talk to Elliott about this and I think we need to get a jump start on thanking God!!!

I just have to tell you that at the CORE service the other night, when we started singing, "I am free to run, I am free to dance. I am free to live for You. I am free. " I just saw in my spirit that Miles was doing those things. I looked over and I know you were claiming that for Miles, too. I am so excited about what God is going to do and is currently doing in and through Miles!! I am EXPECTING this soon!!
