"Not To Us, But To Your Name Give Glory"

I don't even know how to begin blogging tonight.  My heart is overwhelmed with emotions.  A group text was sent out last night to our youth group about meeting at our house tonight for prayer.  I am part of that group text so I knew something was up.  I thought what an amazing thing to have our youth come to my house and pray over me.  Jordan took me to Highlands today for a shot and said there were some adults in the church office talking about coming to our house as well.  I soon found out this was more than just our youth group coming and Jordan informed me that there would be a lot of people coming to our home.  Flowers were delivered to me this afternoon and after receiving them, I was sitting on my couch spending time alone with Jesus and was so overwhelmed that people were coming to pray over me.  As I was talking to Jesus, I told Him that I knew if He was physically here walking on the earth, that He would be at my house tonight and would be able to touch me and heal me.  At the very moment I said those words to Him, the front door blew open.  People can say it was a coincidence but I know Jesus physically showed me He was with me and would continue to be with me.  My heart was over joyed as I got up to shut the door and I thanked Him for the physical part of seeing He was with me.  Shortly before 7:00pm cars began parking on our street and the people started circling the house.  Our house backs up to Wal-mart, so people parked in the Walmart parking lot and came through our back gate as well.  Below is a testimony of what God did.  No one came inside our home except for family.  As people were praying outside, I sat in a chair in the middle of our living room and my family circled around me on their knees praying.  The power of the Holy Spirit was so evident all around us.  It is so hard to put into to words the gratitude my heart has at this moment.  This night was not about me, but I believe it was about God's people seeing what only He can do.  Psalm 115:1 "Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name give glory, for the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness."

This last picture was captured by one of our neighbors.  Thank you Jamie!

Psalm 116:7 "Return, O my soul, to your rest; for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you."


"Today is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it."


  1. As insomnia hit me at 3 AM, I prayed for you... that you were having a restful night and thanked God for your faith and witness.

  2. Oh, I am sitting here with tears streaming down my face Janet. What an awesome display of God's children intercessing on your behalf. May The Lord continue to give you strength for each day as he restores you to good health. Hugs to you!

  3. This post gave me chills Janet! Love you, praying for you! Thank you for posting and for constantly reminding me God never fails and He is always by our side!

  4. Simply brought to tears by this...God is faithful and so are the people surrounding you. Your testimony and faith is inspiring. May God continue to surround you with His presence.

  5. The communion of the saints is something that cannot be described. So many praying on your behalf - not only your family and friends, but people far away. May God continue to fill you with His peace and goodness.
    My soul in silence waits for God,
    My Saviour He has proved,
    He only is my Rock and Tower,
    I never shall be moved.

    On Him you people evermore,
    Rely with confidence
    Before Him pour you out your heart,
    For God is our defence!

  6. What an incredible sight and thought.....to see and know that so many people love you and are storming the gates of Heaven on your behalf. I don't know you personally but I pray that you will continue to feel the breath of God upon your healing journey.
