Prayer For Miss Phee

Miss Phee

Dear Friends,

These past few days have been very challenging for my husband and me. Our little Yorkie, Miss Phee, has been suffering from an illness that is difficult to treat.

I ask you to join me in praying for her healing.
I’m truly devastated over her illness.

She is eleven, so she’s not a young dog, but she’s a Yorkie and has always been full of life and energy up until this year.
However, she has suffered from a liver shunt since she was three years old. Right now she is dealing with related issues, but not the liver shunt directly.

She hurt her back several months ago by jumping too much off of the furniture.
I found that I could not prevent my little dog from hurdling herself off of things when she was excited~alas! Now she has pain associated with all that leaping about.

Alas—everything is painful for Miss Phee right now. And she needs much prayer.
I remember my late dad saying as he got into his eighties that growing older was not for sissies. He even had a small pillow with that saying embroidered on it.
Miss Phee must be at least eighty or ninety in dog years by now.
I guess if she could talk she would agree with my dad’s bit of senior wisdom.

I am so grateful to the Lord that I have had my little Phee for eleven years, for liver shunt dogs aren’t usually as healthy as my little Miss Phee has been up until a few months ago.

Her vet said before she hurt her back that she was the poster dog for liver shunt dogs! Then back in the fall it all went downhill.

Miss Phee~ Tough Doggie 🖤

From the get-go Miss Phee was a fierce fighter. For when she was just a wee puppy, the vet had to redo her sutures about two months after she was spayed because she was allergic to the sutures and they caused her to have a bad reaction. She became very ill and had to go through that surgery twice.

I wept and prayed before the Lord for her healing for she had to be hospitalized for a week. It seemed I’d only had her for three months though it truly had been since August and now she was going to be taken from me. How could that be possible!
But at the time the Lord promised she would be restored to me. He even gave me a promise that not only would she be healed, but she would be a healthy and strong little dog and that I would have her with me to enjoy for many years.
He even gave me a sketch of her to go with my prayer.

Miss Phee had come to me through a dream that summer ~and a sketch.
Now God was giving me another promise.
Another sketch.
He would not take her away.
I stopped crying.

The previous spring and summer were among the worst of my life health wise. I had suffered the worst migraines ever up until that point.

My daughter was planning an early September wedding and I wanted very much to help her with her big day. I felt bad that I was bed ridden with allergies and severe migraines and was unable to be a part of the planning.
The doctors could do nothing for me.
I was losing hope that I would even be able to attend her wedding as mother of the bride. I was very depressed.


I had loved to walk before I got sick and had a particular route in my neighborhood that I took every day. As I walked I memorized the psalms and prayed for family and all kinds of needs as the Lord led me.

When I reached the summit of one particularly challenging hill, there was a panorama of the most beautiful mountains off in the distance. And I was always on a particular bible verse at that time.


As the mountains are round about Jerusalem,
so the Lord is round about His people from henceforth even for ever.” Psalms 125:2 KJV

The Lord was around me. I knew He was with me just as those mountains surrounded me.


One night I could not sleep, the pain in my head and neck were so severe. The Lord then encouraged me to say in my mind the Psalms I had memorized when I had been able to take my walks. He encouraged me to pray and meditate on His Word despite my pain
.

He said to walk with Him in the Spirit, to walk our route in my heart while saying the psalms I had memorized.


The Lord is my light and my salvation. Whom shall I fear, the Lord is the strength of my life, of whom shall I be afraid? Psalms 27:1

As I began to repeat the Psalms over and over I drifted off to sleep. I saw my walking route. It was a beautiful summer day, with a bright blue sky and lovely white clouds drifting above me. Having walked down our big hill, I now found myself on the flat road saying Psalm 27. The Lord was with me in my heart.

Suddenly there was a little dog with me! I didn’t know what kind of dog this was. It just was a tiny little dog. We walked down the flat road through the neighborhood and on to the next one. Soon we came to the big hill.


I had to carry the tiny puppy in my arms because she could not walk up the big hill.

“As the mountains are round about Jerusalem so the Lord is round about His people from henceforth even to forever.” Psalm 125:2


We got back home and sat in the swing out back and looked up at the blue sky filled with clouds and prayed. In my dream, I saw Mark come home from work. He came up to the swing and looked at the little dog and lovingly smiled at her.

Just two weeks before I had prayed for a little dog and then asked Mark and he had said, “I don’t want to have an indoor dog, or any little dog in our house! I really can’t stand little dogs!”
I had been praying and having my quiet time downstairs and started crying. “Lord I wish I had a little dog. But Mark doesn’t want one.
The Lord spoke to my heart.
I will change Mark’s heart.

Did I hear God right? I didn’t ask Mark again.

In my dream I thought about what God had promised me about changing Mark’s heart, when he came up to me and the little dog in the swing. God had promised to change his heart. Now Mark joined us and picked up the little dog and smiled. He lovingly petted the puppy’s ears who licked his fingers.
In my dream we all three sat in the swing in the backyard under the trees in the beautiful golden afternoon sunlight as the bright clouds drifted across the sky above us.

I then woke up and looked at Mark sleeping beside me in wonder.

“HONEY! I DREAMED ABOUT A LITTLE DOG!

Mark groggily woke up and asked me about my dream. I told him all about it. He sighed.


The next day he asked me to draw the little dog. I drew what the dog looked like in my dream. We took the sketch to the library and started searching through every dog book we could find. We finally found the breed that matched the dog in the sketch. It looked like a Yorkie puppy!


That morning I had another dream. In it the Lord Jesus was giving me that little Yorkie puppy from my earlier dream. He said this was my angel dog. I was responsible to take care of her now.
And so was Mark.
Then He released her to me.

Down, down, down from His arms into my space she came! Then I awoke filled with joy at this beautiful new gift!

~Mark and Miss Phee~

Later that day Mark called around and found a breeder in a town a couple of hours away. We went to see her and she had two female puppies. The smallest little one seemed to choose me! The little dog clung to me as I sang to comfort her on our way home that afternoon.

My neurologist found a medication that stopped my migraines just in time for my daughter’s wedding a couple weeks later. I was able to attend and we took little Phee. I named her Phoenix and Mark promptly renamed her Phee.

The Lord truly did change Mark’s heart because he has loved little Phee from the start. And she loves him. He has even bought clothes for her. That would never have happened had God not done a miracle in his heart.

She was God’s gift not only to me but to Mark as well.
Then when I almost lost Miss Phee after she got spayed, God restored her to me with a promise and another sketch.

Now she is sick again.

You may wonder how if God promised she would be a healthy and strong little dog, did He then let her get the liver shunt?
Why did she have health issues then?
Because I have learned that God does not define good health the way humans do.

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,” saith the Lord.
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways,
and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
Isaiah 55:8-9 KJV

Miss Phee has always been healthy and strong in her own way, despite her liver shunt. Her doctor even said she was the poster dog for liver shunt dogs.
This was true as long as she stayed within her boundaries and was given her meds. If she would eat the right things, she was healthy and strong and filled with energy and life.

“… they cry unto the Lord in their trouble,
and He saveth them out of their distresses.
He sent His word, and healed them,
and delivered them from their destructions.
Oh that men would praise the Lord for His goodness,
and for His wonderful works to the children of men!”
Psalms 107:19-21 KJV

I ask you to join me in praying for my little Phee. If it is God’s will, He will heal her once again as He has before.

Thank you so much. God bless you,

In Christ’s Love,

Suzanne

Lord, I ask You hear my prayer
Please heal Miss Phee I pray

On her where she lay.

Have mercy on her, Jesus,

Her tail to wag with love.

Lord Jesus, help her eat
And food not be her foe
Help her body process food

Lord Jesus, send Thy word,
And fill her heart with life
Let her legs be strong again
And fill her eyes with light.

Wrap her in Thy arms,
Lord, she is so cold!
Help her not to be in pain,
For Jesus, she is old…

Heal her, Jesus, give her back
Her little life, I ask
Hold her Jesus, hold her now,
Heal her with Thy hands.

Lord Jesus, see her suffering!
She’s suffered long with this!
Heal her now, help her get well,
Lord Jesus, let her live!

Oh Lord, she is so precious,
Hear my cry, I pray!

In Jesus’ holy name,
Amen and amen.

After the Bath~ Miss Phee 🖤

The God of All Grace Settle You

03e18cc4-8bed-4d0d-9278-949dcfca93e5


“But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.” 1 Peter 5:10 KJV

I had intended this to be a short message introducing my new encouraging scripture music video about suffering that the Lord inspired me to make last week. He helped me make it to encourage myself as well as others who are suffering. The Bible assures me that I’m not the only one who endures challenges. How often we see this affirmed in our society every day.
1 Peter 5 helps me to keep it all in perspective. When I’m at my worse, I know that there are always many others out there somewhere who are worse off than I am.
God’s word exhorts us to pray for just that one who is in a deeper pit than ours when we imagine we are in the lowest depths of hell and that everyone else has it better than we do. It’s in our most painful moments that we are just certain that the Lord has left us and gone off to party with everyone else, now that He’s made our life a dung pile…tears for fears and pity poor me…:(
These are just the moments we need to turn to God’s Word because it’s in His Word that we find Him encouraging us.
Consider the verse I mentioned from 1 Peter 5:

“Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God,
that he may exalt you in due time:
 Casting all your care upon him; for he cares for you.” 1 Peter 5: 6-7 KJV

These verses mean that if we pray when we feel burdened or disappointed or depressed or worried or stressed that we can know God hears us; that He cares about us and our needs. God loves us. He wants us to bring our burdens to Him, to pour our troubles out on His Altar. He is real and He is listening even though we can’t see Him. We grow close to Him in our suffering when we cry out to HIM.

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.” 1 Peter 5:8-9 KJV

These verses are referring to our unseen enemy who is ever seeking to undermine us spiritually and pull us away from God through any means he can. And we must resist the enemy at all costs because what is more important than our relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ who suffered and died on the cross to give us peace with God? This peace is what the enemy wants to destroy. Our peace with God and our fellowship with each other.
He sows hatred, strife, and dissension. He will use any means he can.
Resist him steadfast in the faith knowing that the same afflictions are being experienced by everyone else in the world.

In other words we are not alone in our trials.
Other people are being gossiped about, abused, slandered, persecuted, mocked, lied about, dishonored, treated shamefully…we are not singled out to be treated like cow pies.
So what does that mean?
We are not really cow pies~no!
We are God’s precious children, but the Apostle John wrote it’s just that the world has not got the eyes to see how special we really are.

“Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew Him not.
2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as he is.” 1 John 3:1-2 KJV

 

But one day the sons and daughters of God will be revealed and those who have treated God’s children so shamefully will be themselves covered with shame.
Amen! God’s word assures us that we are His jewels!

Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him
for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon His name.
And they shall be Mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up My jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spares his own son that serves him.” ~ Malachi 3:16-17 KJV

Don’t take my word for it~read God’s word and encourage yourself.
This is why the Lord inspires me to make scripture videos. His word is encouraging!

But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.” 1 Peter 5:10 KJV

God puts a boundary on all suffering that we endure. He will not give us more than we can handle. He knows what we can tolerate. All suffering is meant to refine our faith. (See 1 Peter 1, James 1)

11 To Him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. “ 1 Peter 5:11 KJV

The word dominion means sovereignty or control. This verse means that God is in control over all things. Even though the enemy takes aim at us and tries to harm us, the enemy is on God’s leash and can only go but so far. He, like our suffering, has boundaries placed on him.
We serve a loving, merciful God. His love and mercy towards us reaches higher than the sky it says in Psalm 103.
Read and meditate on the verses below from Psalm 103 about God and His love for us. And then watch and listen to the scripture video He gave me to share with you. May our Heavenly Father encourage your heart with the scriptures and comfort you with His peace and love. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Psalm 103:8-19 *ERV
8 The Lord is kind and merciful.
    He is patient and full of love.

9 He does not always criticize.
    He does not stay angry with us forever.

10 We sinned against Him,
    but He didn’t give us the punishment we deserved.

11 His love for His followers is
    as high above us as heaven is above the earth.

12 And He has taken our sins
    as far away from us as the east is from the west.

13 The Lord is as kind to His followers
    as a father is to his children.

14 He knows all about us.
    He knows we are made from dust.

15 He knows our lives are short, that they are like grass.
    He knows we are like a little wildflower that grows so quickly,

16 But when the hot wind blows, it dies.
    Soon, you cannot even see where the flower was.

17 But the Lord has always loved His followers,
    and He will continue to love them forever and ever!
    He will be good to all their descendants,
18 to those who are faithful to His agreement
and who remember to obey His commands.

19 The Lord set His throne up in heaven,
    and He rules over everything.” Psalm 103:8-19 *ERV

Jesus Is Driving

Jesus Is Driving

My Jesus is driving; I know not how

My Jesus is driving; He’s driving me now…

My Jesus is in control of my car;

He’s in control and He is God.

My Jesus is driving and He upholds

My car and me by His powerful Word.

He upholds me and all the world

Oh He’s driving me and the Universe.

My Jesus is driving the world and me

Though He is God and works unseen.

He loves me and all the world

It says so in His Holy Word.

He died to save the world from sin

From death He rose back up again…

He suffered, bled, and died that we

Might live for Him eternally…

All those who believe in Him

Jesus comes To live within…

So that He their Car can drive

And be the Pilot of their Life.

He holds tomorrow and today;

With Him I am always safe.

My Jesus is driving; I know not how

My Jesus is driving; He’s driving me now…

My Jesus is in control of my car;

He’s in control and He is God.

Scriptures For Meditation

“…for through (Christ) God created

everything in the heavenly realms and on earth.

He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see—

such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world.

Everything was created through Him and for Him.

He existed before anything else,

and He holds all creation together.”

Colossians 1:16-17 *NLT

“For God wanted them to know

that the riches and glory of Christ

are for you …

And this is the secret:

Christ lives in you.

This gives you assurance

of sharing His glory.”

~ Colossians 1:,27 *NLT

“For God in all His fullness

was pleased to live in Christ,

and through Him

God reconciled everything to Himself.

He made peace

with everything in heaven and on earth

by means of Christ’s blood on the cross.

This includes you

who were once far away from God.

You were His enemies,

separated from Him

by your evil thoughts and actions.

Yet now He has reconciled you to Himself

through the death of Christ

in His physical body.

As a result, He has brought you

into His own presence,

and you are holy and blameless

as you stand before Him

without a single fault.

But you must continue to believe this truth

and stand firmly in it.

Don’t drift away

from the assurance you received

when you heard the Good News.”

Colossians 1:19-23 – *NLT

“The Son is the radiance

and only expression of the glory

of [our awesome] God

[reflecting God’s Shekinah glory,

the Light-being, the brilliant light of the divine],

and the exact representation

and perfect imprint

of His [Father’s] essence,

and upholding and maintaining

and propelling all things

[the entire physical and spiritual universe]

by His powerful word

[carrying the universe

along to its predetermined goal].

When He [Himself and no other]

had [by offering Himself on the cross

as a sacrifice for sin]

accomplished purification from sins

and established our freedom from guilt,

He sat down [revealing His completed work]

at the right hand of the Majesty on high

[revealing His Divine authority]…” Hebrews 1:3 *Amplified Bible

God Keeps All His Promises

 

Gods Rainbow promise

GOD KEEPS ALL HIS PROMISES

God keeps all His promises

Not one will He forget

The storm may be a bitter trial

But a rainbow’s at the end.

Though the journey through the land

Of pain can darken hope,

And faith can fail when all seems lost

Christ will not let go.

He holds us still throughout our storms

And He will see us through,

When all is dark, He’ll be our light

And guide us by His truth.

Not a humble sparrow falls

But our Father knows,

He counts the hairs upon our head

And all our tears He holds

In His special bottle,

He keeps for every soul.

His love for us is measureless,

From us He won’t depart,

None can separate our souls

From the love of God.

Christ, our promise and our hope

And if we could but know,

He’ll not forget after each storm 

To send His promised rainbow.

 © 2017 SD Harden (Prayer Poem) All rights reserved.

 Psalm 89:9 You rule the raging of the sea; when its waves rise, you still them.

 Psalm 107:29 He made the storm be still, and the waves of the sea were hushed.

 Matthew 10:29-31 What is the price of two sparrows—one copper coin? But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it. And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.

Prayer

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your beautiful Rainbow Promise that extends to Your whole creation. May You be with all who are suffering through any type of storms in their life today; hold them firmly beneath Your everlasting arms, give them Your peace and the assurance that through the dark clouds there will be a glorious rainbow awaiting them. May they know that their storm will pass and that You will restore them, thank You, Lord, In Jesus name, amen.
