Truly... Nothing...

When I posted my last Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I never dreamed that God would work so quickly.

To my surprise, the healthcare trial that I had been facing lately, did a total turn around.

The situation caused me much grief, this week.  It seemed no matter how tired I was, I would climb into bed, and find myself unable to get to sleep. 

Who can survive on a couple hours sleep one night, a half hour of sleep another night, and maybe three or four (3 or 4) on yet another night?  All, in a row.

After totally losing my cool, as I wrote about in yesterday's LwL entry, I gave the problem to God.  I took it to the cross. 

I must admit, I had done this already.  Several times, to be sure.  The trouble was I wasn't able to leave it with Jesus. 

For some reason, I seemed to be taking it back.  It may have been due to the fact that each day, I was facing more and more of the dilemma. 

Yesterday, the opposition came to a head.  Even though I remained calm, I made it very clear that I would not tolerate what was I was being subjected to.

This discussion happened first with my nurse.  Then, with the company she is employed by.  And later in the afternoon, with the governmental worker who has been handling my medical case.

I truly expected to have to fight tooth and nail, for a very long time, to be able to have this situation resolved.  Even with my Lord being on my side, I could only envision turmoil that could possibly drag itself out and be physically hurtful me in the interim.

Even so, I didn't give up.  I trusted in Jesus.  After all, since He is for me, so who could be against me?  I just refused to give in.

This caused me to reflect upon Psalm 27:1, "The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?"

Yes, my Lord is my strength.  He provides for all my need.

And, the way He handled this heartbreaking situation proved to me once again, that He is always there for me.  And, I truly have nothing to fear.

I praise God for this!  And, thank Him from the bottom of my heart.

Just so you know, this problem may return at some point in the future.  Possibly in a week, or two.  Hopefully, not.

Even so, I thank you for praying for me.  May God bless you.

Until next time...
