A Mother’s Testimony

Posted on August 8, 2008

The following testimony is from an amazing family at my church. God’s hand is truly upon their family and ministry.Dena, the mother, has founded a homeschool program called LightShine that ministers to children in San Antonio - http://www.lightshine-tx.org . Check out her testimony. I know you’ll be amazed by God’s grace and protection.

Dear Friends and family,

Thank you so much for all your prayers Friday and Saturday for our 3 year old baby girl Lauren. The Lord absolutely spared her life Friday afternoon as she had a near drowning experience while swimming at a friends house. Her lungs and passage ways had shut down when she was pulled out of the water and was not breathing until 3-4 puffs of air were given to her. 911 was called and she was transported to the emergency room were they placed her in Pediatric Intensive Care Unit over night to regulate her breathing and for observation over a portion of right lung that had shut down. I’m not sure of all the medical terms. The next morning she was released and sent home with no problems at all!!!!!! Truly a miracle!

Praise and Glory to an Almighty All-knowing God. No weapon formed against us will prosper. A weapon was formed against us but it was unable to prosper. No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD. Isaiah 54:17

Thank you for all your prayers and may the Lord bless you all with divine protection over your families! Unexpected circumstances unfortunately will come our way as we live in this life. Plead the protective Blood of Jesus over your children daily, ask for wisdom in areas you lack and stand upon protection scriptures. Quote them over your children daily. Most of all DO NOT FEAR but Trust in Jesus! Take your children in your arms and truly appreciate them! This situation is something I am only sharing through this written e-mail to give our Lord and savior the GLORY! I am in the process of wiping the images from my mind and so far they are under control. Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ 2 Corinthians 10:5 I do not want to rehash the experience over and over again by talking about it with everyone but do want to make sure the Lord receives all Glory and praise for saving our daughter’s life and vitality!

Love to you all,
Ken, Dena, Rachel, Hannah, Lauren, and baby boy Matthew Tennison

Psalm 91
Safety of Abiding in the Presence of God
1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.”
3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler
And from the perilous pestilence.
4 He shall cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you shall take refuge;
His truth shall be your shield and buckler.
5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
6 Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
8 Only with your eyes shall you look,
And see the reward of the wicked.
9 Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge,
Even the Most High, your dwelling place,
10 No evil shall befall you,
Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
11 For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.
12 In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.
13 You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,
The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.
14 “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him,
And show him My salvation.”
