I've been asking myself this question for a while now. Why can't I acknowledge God's hand moving in my life?
So here's the story, about one year ago we found out our son had been hiding a physical illness. He had tremors in his arms and legs, his eyes twitched, his balance was poor. He eventually couldn't walk faster than an elderly person. He had been hiding the condition for 2 months. He would constantly wring his hands and shuffle his feet so that no one would notice what was happening. So we did the usual things of doctors, specialists, MRI's, tests, but never received a diagnosis. Naturally we were afraid that this condition could be permanent and that he would face these challenges for the rest of his life. Then in August, his tremors lessened and by the end of the month they were gone! I was so happy and I was thankful, but only to a point. I didn't share much about this except when it came up in conversation. Why it has been hard for me to say the words "God healed my son"?
I've given silent praise in my heart for this, but why have I not shared this with those I call my Christian family? That they can see what God has done and join in thanksgiving and praise? Why do I not give God his due? Why do I not declare his faithfulness? Why can't I just say it? So hence this post. God has moved in my life, God has brought healing to my son, and I praise and worship him for this blessing! It is my hope in sharing this that you too can share with us your blessings, the things you have seen God do. That together we might all acknowledge him and thank him for who he is and what he has done.

"All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God."
