As I wrote in yesterday’s Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I was so-o happy for the teen you, so many others and I had been praying for.
Last evening, I noticed that the redness surrounding my infected, partly-opened incision, had spread. I wasn’t too happy.
The last time my nurse visited, she and I couldn’t figure out why this was happening to me. But, last evening, I found myself feeling rather low in spirit, seeing that it had gotten worse.
Maybe it’s because I am a widow, living alone, without anyone to love and discuss stressful issues with. Or, maybe because Satan is alive and well.
Of course, it’s probably a bit of both.
In any case, I found myself tearful. Crying out to God, I asked Him why He seems to answer prayer in a positive way when I pray for others, yet not lately when it comes to my own healing needs.
Wondering why I seem to suffer trial after trial in my life, made me feel horrible. Like I let God down.
Realistically, I know I didn’t. I’m only human, and God knows this. This, coupled with the fact that I know He is in control and loves me, raised my spirits.
What helped me through this stressful time? Reading my Bible.
God told us in Psalm 34:19, “Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.”
Yes, I am currently suffering with a trial that only God has control over. And, I know that I am not alone in my suffering.
Many people I know are suffering through trials of many sorts. But, as God told us, He delivers His children out of them all.
So, I’ll just keep trusting Him, for a positive conclusion.
Thank you for continued prayer. May God bless you!
Until next time…
