Praise God!

After four years of being sick I guess I just have known the routine of getting back to walking. I have been so humbled tonight I don't even know what to say other than Nothing compares to the Promise I have in Him.

This morning started the same although I had a little more feeling in my legs, I could stand like yesterday, taking steps was out of reach.

Tonight as I was in my wheelchair I felt like I should get out of my wheelchair and walk and I felt in my heart if I trusted I could do it, it would happen. I stood up and took one step and then another... OH MY GOSH I JUST TOOK MY FIRST STEP IN 3 WEEKS with NO HELP is all I could think. But I focused and took a few more turned on our hall way light and said "hey mom! Check this out!" I walked from my room directly to her room with tears in my eyes. I can't believe it I am walking! I am walking without any help the shaking is going away and I didn't know what each step held but I knew somewhere in my heart that I could do it. I did do it! I have walked around the house I have been walking for just a little while now, and it's almost 11:00 so I will be heading to bed. But all I can say is in the 4 years of my sickness never has God blessed me so huge than to give me the strength and ability to walk after not walking for 3 weeks.

I can only say tonight that I am speechless I have cried many tears of joy and I am so excited, tomorrow is a new day with new things to overcome but hopefully walking is a thing that will stay. Thank you for your prayers and I ask for continued prayer as I continue to get my IV and get well but this is something that will forever stay in my heart in head and make this disease that much more bearable. PRAISE GOD!

How awesome that you were able to walk. I can't even imagine how difficult it must be after being bedridden for weeks. Your faith in HIM just proves that anything is possible.
