Negative & Positive... (+ a link to: Darkness & Light)

In yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I wrote about how blessed I was that my daughter P, argued with me, until I gave in and allowed her to come pick me up in an effort to prevent me from driving.  After all, she did realize how dangerous it would be for me to drive.

I am truly grateful to P.  Thank you, sweetheart.  May God bless you!

As you know, I've been writing not just a daily entry, like this one, but I've also been writing entries to fill in information regarding my hospital stay.  Like I did in today's entry I posted, dated May 15th that I entitled, Darkness & Light.  Here's a LINK, to make it simple for you to access to read. 

Whenever I think about what I've been going through, I sometimes feel okay.  Other times, I feel rather yucky.

Hopefully, you won't ever have to go through anything like what I've been suffering for the past nine (9) months.

Prior to my recent hospital stay, I found myself battling with both positive and negative thoughts.  Who wouldn't?  Especially, if they were trying to heal and it seemed it was almost an impossibility.

When my daughter, a non-medical person, insisted several times that I be tested for the staph infection MRSA, I had to wonder if she was right, or not.

When it was confirmed that I had indeed tested positive for the infection, I found it shocking.

Trying to not focus on the darkness of the situation, I kept my eyes on Jesus.  At least, as best as I could.

Of course, I must admit, I felt like I was in shock.

Whenever I found myself becoming upset, thinking about how the evil one was affecting my life, I tried to not focus on how awful the situation was.  Instead, I forced myself to focus on Jesus.  My Great Physician, for whom all things are possible.

Whenever I did this, the darkness seemed to become lighter.  I praise God for this.

After all, He told us in John 10:10, "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."

Yes, being His child, I must focus on the fact that the thief may have come to rob, kill and destroy, but my Lord came to give me life.  And, life more abundantly.

Again, I praise God for this.  Thank You, my Lord Jesus!


Until next time...
