Seeking & Finding...

This entry was originally written and posted in Life with Lynnie (LwL) on blog.com, rather than here on blogspot.com, due to the problems I had posting any entry, here. Now that blogger has this site working properly again, I thought I would copy and repost here, to save you from having to back and forth between sites.

Seeking & Finding…

Anyone reading Life with Lynnie (LwL) knows that a nurse comes to clean and change the dressing on my still partly-opened and infected incision.

Last Saturday, my regular nurse was off, so a replacement visited me. I had met her, previously. But, with seeing so many people herself, she didn’t really recall the condition of my incision from her past visit.

She told me that it looked like my incision was trying to heal. This sounded good to me!

Since my nursing care is now every second (2nd) day, my regular nurse visited, today. She’s such a nice person. I’m grateful to have her as my nurse.

When she removed the dressing, I actually cried out in pain. It hurt, terribly.

She commented that it looked like the swelled area, was larger. More swelling. I agreed with her. Even though I cannot really see the wound area, unless I look in a mirror, it felt to me like I was more swollen.

Yet, she told me it looks like my body is trying to heal.

How strange is this! She commented that it almost seems that something more may be wrong with me, inside. Apparently, when this is the case, the surface wound area usually doesn’t want to heal.

We discussed the fact that I have now been taking my vitamins, just more than a couple of weeks. I believe in my heart that they have been boosting my immune system. Thus, encouraging healing of the surface wound, ever since.

The vitamins and minerals I take are not obtained in any drug store.

The products and company was developed by a physician. As a user of their products, I can even contact them and speak with a medical or research physician, if necessary.

Once, when my now deceased husband Gordon and I began taking them, I actually did contact them. And, was shocked that a researcher gave me information I requested.

Since they are not found in stores, I have a prearranged order that is automatically shipped to me, at home, monthly. And, since the time when I first began taking them, my general health has improved.

For this, I will always be thankful. Thank You, Lord… for providing these for me, to improve my quality of life.

When God provides healing, it is sometimes a miracle healing. But most often, the healing comes through physicians, medications and treatments.

Since everything in my life comes from my Lord, I look to Him… in all things. Including my healing.

This reminded me of 1 Chronicles 16:11, “Seek the Lord and his strength, seek his face continually.”

That’s what I do. I seek and rely on God’s strength.

And, He provides it. I know that within myself, I can do nothing, but through Him, all things are possible.


Until next time…
