Continued Prayer Needed...

Truly, I hope this isn't a new habit I am forming, for again last night I did what happened, the night before. 

Feeling rather ill, I went to bed early, well at least for me.  10:30 pm, I fell asleep.  I felt like sleep, glorious sleep, coming early!  To my dismay, I awoke about 12:30 am and that was my whole night's sleep, until I finally dozed off, about a half (1/2) hour before my alarm went off.  Good grief!

I must admit, that around 5:30 am, I thought to myself:  all of a sudden, I'm feeling improved!  My first thought after this was to thank whoever prayed for me and I asked God to bless them, for up until then, I could hardly breathe.  I kept praying for God to keep my sinus passage open, so I wouldn't have repercussions with my eye problem.  As I said, about 5:30 am, I realized I could breathe!  Praise God!  Thank You, Jesus!  Again, whoever prayed, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.  Blessings to you.

Once I was up and running, or maybe I should say...walking for the day (lol), I seemed to feel even better.  In fact, I thought that maybe I was truly going to be over whatever was ailing me, quickly!

In the morning, I managed to get done everything I needed to do.  This was good news to me, for I was feeling rather well!

This afternoon, I once again accomplished what I needed to do and felt great about it. 

Then came suppertime.

Feeling rather poorly once again, I thought I would check on and update Facebook (FB).  To my surprise, many people had taken my comment from this morning, out of context. 

You see, last night before bed, I posted that I felt ill and asked for prayer.  Nothing wrong with that, especially since I knew I needed prayer to avoid my eye complications.

This morning, I posted a comment that since I awoke here on earth and not in heaven, God has a plan for me, today!  I meant this in a positive way.  Okay, okay.  So, I found out I'm not great with my sense of humour, for people misunderstood and had quoted scripture about all things in God's time, etc.

It was then, that I realized they thought I was depressed.  Well, maybe I am, but that wasn't my purpose in posting this.  My purpose was to let everyone know I lived through the night, even though I felt like I was dying (from being ill)!

Once I realized the misconception, I once again commented to clarify and was glad to see friends were understanding. 

This evening, I saw a comment from a friend asking what was going on.  They obviously hadn't seen the earlier clarification, so I let them know that I was sick and in need of prayer.  Shortly after, they commented that they would pray. 

Again, I thank all who prayed.  May God bless each of you, richly.

But, I must say that my need for prayer has not ended, for I am feeling extremely ill, now.  In fact, I can tell you that I am surprised I could even sit long enough to write this entry.  It's a good thing I am a quick typist!

Why?  Well, without being too graphic, let me just say that I've been spending more time in the bathroom than I have since Gordon died almost a year ago!

Even with this new development, I am thanking God.  After all, He did tell us to be thankful in all things.(1 Thessalonians 5:18)!

Thanking Him for making me ill enough, that I believe this virus or whatever it is I have, is flowing through me quickly enough that I will be healed from it, without delay.

Thanking Him for His love towards me, for always taking care of me, for I must rely on Him, alone.  Gordon is no longer here to love me and take care of me.

Thanking Him in a special way for my friends, who have shown me love and support, even through this minor of illnesses.

Even though I am thankful for the answered prayer I received earlier today, I am hoping you will bear with me and lift me up in continued prayer, for once again I am stuffed up so that I can hardly breathe.

Thank you for bearing with me.  Hopefully, you weren't too bored reading about my being ill.  Hopefully, I will never again write about this draining subject (okay, so maybe I intended this pun!).

Thank You, Father.  May You bless each praying person, now and always.

Until next time...
