How do I even begin to put into words the pure joy I have felt the past few days. KAHSAY IS WALKING!!!! I had no idea if I would ever be able to say these words. In October of 2012, we were given little hope that we could expect Kahsay to walk. His MRI was extremely unique and the areas the damage effected would have great impact on his development in all areas. While we always held tight to fact that we serve a GREAT BIG GOD, we still proceeded with caution. I often questioned how to live life with the confidence that God can perform miracles, but at the same time living in the reality that something I so desperately desired may not be in God's plan for Kahsay. All I can say is God gave me a peace that I can't explain. It was OK. I trusted. I was gonna be ok even if Kahsay never walked. It was well with my soul. I rejoiced in his progress and praised God for miracle after miracle in Kahsay's life.
And then it happened...........with no warning.............God moved mountains!!!! I guess I thought I would have been prepared. He had been walking with his walker for some time, but was still unable to stand on his own. He hated using the walkers provided by school because he did not like to use his hands. I knew he had to use his hands in order to walk. That particular moment I was trying to videotape him attempting to stand and jump. I had no idea God was going to perform the most amazing miracle I could imagine at that moment. It seriously felt like God waved his magic wand and "poof" Kahsay could walk. I can't explain the overwhelming joy, and excitement I felt (as you can tell from my high pitched annoying screams and then blubbering sobs).
I am not kidding when I say I wish I could have shouted from the mountaintops that we serve a God that is bigger than any mountain we face. I recently saw a quote that read "Sometimes God moves our mountains, and sometimes God says take another lap". It reminds me of the lyrics to the song "It is Well- Through it all"
