Wig’s Word of God Today 7-7-2012 Julian’s Healing Skin of Christ
A new skin of life offered in Christ. “People do not put new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise the skins burst, the wine spills out, and the skins are ruined. Rather, they pour new wine into fresh wineskins, and both are preserved.” Matthew 9:17
Amos 9:11-15, Psalm 85 & Matthew 9:14-17
I begin today by joining my love of God to describe Day 8 of Julian’s Healing Update. The “New Skin in Christ” has been bestowed on Julian by the amazing display of love through prayer we are receiving all over the world. Julian’s old wine represented in his loss of blood and transfusion of new blood we can see and feel the “New Skin in Christ” Julian has because all of you who have called, sent emails or sent us cards expressing your sympathy and love.
We are all very amazed and thankful at the outpouring of prayers that we both sometimes begin to cry just thinking of all the people who are praying for Julian and us. The Road to Recovery has many beautiful sights but the scenery can and will be very difficult to stay in our seatbelts from the challenges and bumps we will and have encountered thus far.
Julian lost every bit of his blood. The stomach wound looks like a steel zipper from the staples closing his wound from his spleen removal to stop the internal bleeding also acted like a giant petri dish collecting bacteria and growing into a blood infection. The infection is causing Julian to have a constant fever of 100 degrees plus making his heart race like a little Red Corvette sometimes over 125 beats per minute. He is so sedated he hasn’t opened his eyes in two days but he has made other strides such as having bowel movements as well as breathing better on his own.
Last night he was wheeled into surgery to remove the final chest drain tube and be outfitted with a trachea breathing tube in his throat. The relief I can see in his expressions of not having a piece of quarter inch PVC pipe shoved down his throat was overwhelming. We can see the alleviation it causes in his mouth’s movements as well as his color in his face. We are thankful God has taken Julian this far and we all are easily overcome with tears of exhaustion allowing us to heal from our constant attentive thoughts, action and love.
Every experience in life God allows us to grow if we’d only see each instance as the Will of God. This accident makes us all be thankful and aware of the healing every family member must go through. It has drawn people together in God’s Precious Name sharing Truth in every action. The life of two families that once was a separate entity of parents to Julian have drawn the two newest parents of Julian into a beautiful teamed effort to see Julian walk out of this life altering event as a SURVIVOR!!! THANKS BE TO GOD…
We have learned to accept the “Marathon Heart” beating in Julian’s chest as a sign for us to be ready to go the long distance. We believe because of the prayers you have provided, the vigil of care he has received from all family members and his young age Julian will fight off this infection, the shock his organs received because of blood loss and heal the broker bones quicker than most. The doctor reports Julian is still in CRITICAL condition progressing day-by-day on God’s Own Divine Plan of healing.
We close today asking that your prayers continue as we get down on our knees in thanksgiving to Glorify the Father because of each of you “The Stampeding Intercessors of Heaven’s Door.” God is answering the prayers we all have to see success in Julian’s recovery. Our unspoken “thanks” is a real aspect of every tear we shed during the day. Tears of gratitude. Tears of love. Tears of Surrender. Each of you are in our prayers too. God is Glorified in all. In our healing, we remain,
Yours in Christ,
Thomas and Toni Cruz-Wiggins
