Good News!

Hopefully, you have been reading Life with Lynnie (LwL) and are aware that I am still in need of healing.  If so, I have some news.  Good news!

As I wrote previously, my nurse told me that my incision seemed to be healing.  Even so, it was still leaking fluid on Wednesday, when I saw my surgeon/doctor.

On Thursday, my nurse told me it was looking really improved.  Then, on another visit to clean, pack and redress the wound, she told me it didn't need packing.

And, the latest news is... that I am no longer leaking!  My incision is healing well!

This latest development is rather shocking, after all I've been through.  But, I am thankful.  Very thankful.  Thankful to my Great Physician, who is providing healing for me!  Thank You, Lord!

I must qualify this.  My nurse made it clear that my incision is not fully healed.  But, it's reaching the point where there is nothing she can do to assist my healing. 

She also reminded me that we have been here, before.  My body has been in this exact same situation, previously.  But, instead of continued healing, it once again opened up, in the past. 

Well, I'm not going to focus on that.

I'd rather press on, and trust my Lord, that He is indeed providing healing for me, at this time.

My nurse also reminded me, that since there is swelling and pain, the healing of the wound is superficial.  Meaning, there is still a healing problem, inside me.

She reminded me that I still should not bend, lift, or carry anything.  This way, as I continue healing, I won't develop another hernia, or cause any damage to my insides that have not yet healed.

Truly, I do my best to do whatever it is I can do, to promote my healing.  After all, I do not want to be like this, for any longer than my body needs to heal.

Talk about good news!  This was great news!  Again, I thank you, Lord! 

While praising Him, I thought of Psalm 146:1, "Praise ye the Lord. Praise the Lord, O my soul."

Yes, I will continue to praise my Lord!  Not just for the healing that He is now providing me, but for the greatest gift I've ever received.  Salvation!

Realizing that Jesus came to earth in obedience to God the Father, suffered for sin, died on a wooden cross, and was resurrected, is the greatest gift anyone could receive.  It's commonly known in the Christian community, as the Good News.  The Good News of the gospel.

Do you know where you will spend eternity, when your life here on earth has ended?  Will you spend eternity in heaven?  Or, in hell? 

If you believe on the Lord, Jesus Christ, you shall be saved (Acts 16:31).  If not, it will be very hot, where you'll end up. 

Trust in Jesus, today.

Until next time...
