prayer for my step dad.
Father, in Your Word You said if i spoke to the mountain, and told it to be cast into the sea, and didnt doubt in my heart that it would be, i would have what i said. it says that in mark 11:23. in verse 24 it goes on to quote Jesus saying whatever i desire, to believe i receive when i pray, and i would have the things that i say.
i command the cancer in my step dad’s body to be removed and be cast into the sea. i also command the mountain of unbelief in his heart to be removed and cast into the sea. i believe i recieve this as being done, and i rejoice in it.
i also command the depression in my mother’s little cat to be removed, and command his will to live to be restored, and his eyesight to be restored, and his appetite to be restored, in Jesus Name. i believe i receive this also as being done.Father, You also said in Your Word, in james 5:14,15, that if any was sick among us we could call the elders of the church to pray and anoint them with oil, and You would raise him up and forgive him his sins also. mom did this, so thank You that You will raise him up off his sick bed, healed and forgiven.
i also want to thank You for giving me guarentees in Your Word such as these-
God is not a man that He should lie, neither the son of man that He should repent. has He said, and shall He not do it, or has He spoken and shall He not make it good?
all the promises of God are yea in Him, and amen in Him, to the glory of God through Christ.
for as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
so shall My Word be that goeth forth out of My mouth: it shall not return unto Me void, but will accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
Father, with promises like these, and guarentees like these, there is no way i cant believe You will do this thing for me, and much more, because You love me. all i can do is thank You for the outcome, because You promised i would have what i say when i pray, if i would only believe it.
i believe it!
i finally found a job, after five months of searching. it would seem, with all the medical students being turned out from all the schools around here, and with most of the positions already taken to begin with, that the promise of a good job after graduation is a bit hollow. to say the least.
but i had finally found one. i was hired at a dermatology clinic, to help another MA who had been there 3 years. because she had plans to go to medical school herself, she had always been part time, until october of the previous year when the doctor’s nurse of 20 years took a medical leave. appearantly with no plans to return. so the MA was now working full time, and doing the clinical studies that the doctor had taken on. drug companies often pay a lot of money to doctors who do their studies.
well MA was kind of resentful of me. remember this was my first actual job. you go to school for medical assisting, but you learn the job after you start working somewhere. she felt overworked as it was, and was unhappy that doctor had procrastinated so long before hiring some one. and then he hired some one fresh out of school. that meant that in addition to all her other stuff, she had to train me. surprizingly, she was very nice to me. but i could tell from the start she resented having to train some one. i could understand why.
now doctor wasnt a very nice boss to the girls in the back. he could be a real jackass. as it was, a month after i was hired he managed to upset MA so badly that she walked out. something about an inferrence that she wasnt doing her job. so i had to wing it, which im good at. but this man didnt understand why she was so upset. (here’s where i roll my eyes).
she came back after a week, but only to do the studies. a was still winging it, but i had a lot of questions. doctor began to become very impatient with the many things i still didnt know, and really didnt like me asking him questions. never mind that he was a ‘teaching doctor’ with the university he had just become a part of. never mind the fact that when he became a part of this university, half his staff quit, and i stayed on. its just the nature of a jackass to kick you i guess. when i got my review, it was probably the worst review anybody could have given. it made me sound like a real loser.
and a week after that i was let go.
to be continued…
its so good to be working again! working full time now, so im going to have to get used to time restraints. but i dont care, im glad to be working full time. and this time its a good fit i think.
ive been working temporary since february, which pays pretty good, but the hours have been so inconsistant.
when i first decided to become a medical assistant, i was working a couple hours a day for my elderly neighbors doing house work and running errands. but it was getting hard for them to manage everyday things, and their sons had wanted to move them to an assisted living facility for some time. they had always fought this idea, wanting rather to expire in their own home when that time came.
well one day i told them i could get some training, and do home health care for them. this would enable them to stay in their home, giving me more hours at the expense of their insurance rather than me billing them. they seemed to like the idea…..until i acted on it.
once i was in school, they both decided i was abandoning them. no matter how i tried, i couldnt seem to get them to understand that this was the original plan. so it wasnt long before the sons came out, and once again talked to them about assisted living. this time they conceded. i think the woman really kind of wanted to anyway, and the man had been the big hold out. i dont think she realized what kind of place they were going to, that it wasnt an aprtment with help coming in, but that it was one big room in a facility.
once they agreed to go, the sons had them out fast, and cleaned out the house, and sold it. good thing i went to school for something i could do without them.
now to find a job……..
