God alone is Sovereign

1 Chronicles 29:11

Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all.

Let's Praise the Lord!

It is 9:00 at night and I still haven’t packed for Florida yet so tonight’s post is going to be a short one. But, I did want to post to let you know about today because it was a big day and I know you will want to Praise the Lord with me!

With the help of my wonderful accountant I got the final piece of information I was waiting on and headed back up to the Medicaid office to turn in the two missing pieces of information they needed. After waiting about 30 minutes or so for my number to be called it was finally my turn & I handed over the papers with a prayer to the Customer Service agent at the window. I also took the time to pop my head over to the window of the “Sweet Lady” who was so kind to me yesterday to thank her for her help. She remembered me and smiled. I don’t know if many people take the time to thank them.

I thought that would be all I would hear from Medicaid for a while since they have to process my application. But, God gave me a blessing about 4:30 this afternoon when my Caseworker – I’ll call her Mrs. J – called me. She explained to me that our case is very complicated & that my application would have to be sent to their accountants in Columbia, SC for review before they could make a determination on if we qualify or not. She did however tell me that she had gotten them to temporarily approve Medicaid coverage for me for 30 days while our application was being reviewed. Praise God! Thank you Jesus! They still haven’t made a determination, but for the next 30 days we can see specialists, have an echocardiogram done & have lab work done and it be covered. What a blessing! Of course I had to share with her after saying “Thank You Jesus” about my Faith where she proceeded to tell me that she is a Christian too. She & her husband Pastor a church in the area. She told me she was praying for my baby and for our application.

So, I have to say that God certainly put my application in the hands of a Sister in Christ. That is a blessing! She can’t make the final determination of our coverage because so much of her decision is based on what Columbia says, but I am certainly thankful she is my caseworker. Please be praying for the person who receives our application in Columbia to have mercy & compassion on us. You can imagine how big this is for our family.

So, there is much to be thankful for today! Thank you all so much for following our story and for praying for our little girl and our family. Now…. Off to pack for Florida. We’ll be gone for a week and we are truly ready for some rest. It has been a big week.
