This is really the measure of a born again Christian. The question is “do you trust God? Are you walking by faith?
On Tuesday, I had a serious challenge to my health. something came over me that I had never experienced before. I was literally knocked out, could not open even a can of beans or a bag of rice to feed my grandson. All I could do was lay on my back.
This could be serious or not, I did not know. Yet not ONE time did I pray. I felt “what will be will be.” I am all for God’s will. I felt like death was approaching. Like I was passing away. I thought, if this is death, it’s not that bad. I went to sleep with no fear. Still, no prayer. And I woke up!!!! LOL
Zee got on the case. All of my symptoms were clear. It looked like cellulitis. She arranged for me to have a doctor’s appt. and Zee’s diagnosis was confirmed in the doctor’s office yesterday. All that is required it to take an antibiotic. It seems that I scratched a wound on my body and it got infected. I scratched it with purpose. I wanted it to look differently and get a different scab. Well, My leg swelled up to twice the size. It is painful to walk. However, I find the more I walk, the less the pain. But the doctors want my leg elevated.
My ticker is great. a swollen foot like this raises the chance of a heart blockage. A monitor was put on my foot and I broke the sound barrier!!! LOL
So my actions tell me that I am not afraid of death. Satan jumped in with some dreams which I ignored. All I need to say to God is “thank you.” You have raised me up by your Holy Spirit not to fear death.
Some of you are so afraid that if a prayer is not said on your behalf, that you will suffer great loss. So you send me long emails to pray for you. For YOU, I DO pray. But not your style but my own, which is to never tell God what to do or even make a suggestion to Him. My faith tells me what the Lord said. He looks after His own so “do not fret.”
So I am getting better after taking 3 of the pills. The leg is normal size now. The pain is still there but it is reduced.
An important thing to point out from this is that a small infection can throw off your entire system and appear more monstrous than it actually is.
