I WAS RUSHED TO THE NEAREST HOSPITAL... by my mom this morning

July 6, 2008 10:02am CST
Today is SUNDAY and during this day I am really busy as far as I can be... because this is the day that I usually spent in serving God all through out. As a SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHER (who teach gospel to kids) I am assigned to officiate worship services here and there and TODAY, I was assigned in a far away place about 2 to 3 hours drive away from home. As I was about to leave our place... I suddenly felt this tingling sensation around my mouth and a sudden feeling of warm all over my body... SOMETHING THAT I USE TO FEEL every time I got an allergic reaction. THERE YOU GO... I started to SWELL and my face became BLOATED due to extreme ALLERGIC REACTION with the medicated coffee I have drunk (It was my first time to be allergic to this kind of drink) The time then was almost 8am and the time of my duty would be 11:30am so its almost late for me to be staying at the hospital just to recover. I just simply PRAYED EARNESTLY for a while, entrust my WHOLE LIFE UNTO HIM and then ask my MOM to bring me to the nearest hospital to get some SHOTS for my problem. After receiving one, the doctor advise me to stay for 30mins to an hour for them to observe my condition plus the fact that it will make me REALLY SLEEPY(by the way, allergic reaction can be fatal because the swelling will not just be superficial it can also swell from the inside compressing our lungs and makes it difficult to breathe) I did not listen to what the doctor instruct me to do but insisted to let us go because I stil have some duty to attend to. They did allow us and suggest to go to the nearest hospital whenever I feel any more problems. My mom accompanied me to the place of worship and Thanks God because it is really a MIRACLE that all of my rashes and swelling DISAPPEARED as I have reach my destination. I was able to teach the congregational worship service for kids and was able to return home safely without any complication from my allergy I did post my experiences TODAY... to share to all of you... THAT GOD HAS SOME GREAT WAYS, in answering our prayers! IN WAYS WE NEVER HAD EXPECTED! Just HAVE FAITH, BE STRONG, and NEVER ABANDON our DUTY because HE WILL NEVER ABANDON US AS WELL! God bless each and every one

I must say that was a scary situation for you haveing that allergic reaction like that to coffee you said it was? wow! what kind was it? well I'm glad to know that god helped you feel better and make it to teach the kids at church. Yes god can work in ways that no one thought he could like he did for you. I know he has always helped me in the worst of times and will forever be with me no matter what. Our god is an awesome god he reigns from heaven above with wisdom, power, and love our god is an awesome god. That is one of my favorite songs if you have ever heard of it. That part is just the chorus part but a very touching and moveing song. Take care god bless.

Praise God for what he did for you this morning. I feel we as Christians need to share these type of experiences more and more in life just to show others who powerful our God is. Also glad to hear you were able to get to Sunday School to teach your class, and everything has turned out for the best. I will keep on believing with you for great things to come from this.

I am happy for your VERY KIND WORDS but also sad for what you have told me. Nothing more I can say, because I do not know the rest of the story but one thing is for sure... I WILL INCLUDE YOU AND YOUR FAMILY on my PRAYERS tonight and until you GET THE PEACE you are looking for. God misses His child like you... I hope you'll have the guts to return to Him once again like the prodigal son whom his father still loved after what he did. THAT'S HOW GOOD GOD IS... AND HIS LOVE IS UNTIRINGLY ENDLESS AND UNCONDITIONAL!

Hi Jhordie! I'm glad that you're ok now. I agree with you about the fatality of untreated allergic reaction. It was good that you were given medical attention right away. I really admire what you're sharing with the kids. You are doing your part in your own special way and you help those kids to have stronger faith. We get tested at times but always keep up the faith. Take care and take note of the allergens alright? God bless you my friend!

I will never drink that coffee again... maybe it has something on it that made me allergic to it. THANKS FOR APPRECIATING my simplest way of THANKING GOD by means of my service unto His little children. God bless you as well my friend.

Yeah, it's most likely something was added to the coffee that triggered it. Just keep some medicines on hand as well. Take care and have a great week ahead!

Wow. I am amazed that you could still think of others and put them before you even though you were having medical complications! You are truly dedicated to your work and i feel inspired by you. I have allergies too but the worst i have is hayfever and that sometimes causes my asthma to trigger as well but my allergies alone don't ever cause too big a problem like yours. I hope it doesn't happen to you anytime soon again. Take care mate!

Glad to hear you made it safely. I'm not so big on the belief that God is responsible but I do respect your belief and I think it is cool that you have something to believe in. I think that is the most important thing, to have something to believe no matter what it is. It's waht keeps us going. Anyway, whether an act of God, a medical thing, or just plain luck, or maybe something else i didn't mention, it's good to hear that you are well.
