Attacked! (+ a link to: Sleeping With a Stranger & More...)

I'm sure you're aware, that here on Life with Lynnie (LwL) I've been writing about my recent hospital stay.  And, about being home, once again.

Since I am making an effort to fill in the gap of when I wasn't able to write and post entries while in hospital, here is a LINK to the entry I wrote and published today, but shows online as May 13th.

When I first awoke yesterday, I thought it would be a good day.  I felt somewhat rested, even though I had only slept between three and four (3 and 4) hours during the night.

I knew I had to call my real estate board and obtain a form to use to put my membership on hold due to health reasons.  Even though I originally had gotten sick and had surgery last September, I hadn't done so, thinking that I would be healed within a few weeks.

Unfortunately, a few weeks turned into a few months.  Then, more surgery.  And, still no healing. 

Still, because I hadn't been aware of having the staph infection MRSA, I kept trusting God for healing, within a few weeks, time after time.

After arranging for the form, I called my daughter P, who insisted she would pick me up and drive me to the doctor's to have my wound, and drainage tube checked over.

Then, I had a phone call from someone else.  I won't mention who.  Or why.

It's enough to say that the person was in a hateful and hurtful frame of mind.  Their tongue lashed out at me, calling me names, swearing, etc.

In an effort to resolve the issue, I got a third (3rd) person on the phone with us, in a conference call.  At first, the angry person seemed to be extra polite to the additional person on the line with us.  At least, until they began verbally attacking me, once again.

After feeling like I was sinfully being attacked for no reason, I said I had had enough, that I needed to get ready to go to my surgeon/doctor's, said goodbye and hung up.

It never ceases to amaze me how unloving and uncaring some people can be.  Especially, when they are either confused or misunderstanding regarding issues at hand.

Like I said, when I wrote May 13th's entry (today), we live in a sinful world.  Evil.  Satan's domain.

How fitting the Bible verse was that I used in that entry:  Micah 2:1, "Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds! when the morning is light, they practise it, because it is in the power of their hand."

Just so you know, I do feel that Satan is attacking me.  He can't stand the work I do for Christ.

This may sound silly to some of you, if you aren't truly a Bible-believing person.  However, friends of mine who live near Cornwall, Ontario, Canada, who have a ministry, were the first people to speak with me to this regard.

They believe I have been attacked, repeatedly by Satan.  And, it was their opinion also, that it is due to the work I do for my Lord, Jesus Christ.

I'm grateful that God has already written the ending.  Satan doesn't have to believe it.  But, I do.  And, I know who wins.


Until next time...
