Calling For...

In yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I discussed the fact that I now have a third (3rd) infection going on, inside me.  This one is in my lungs.

I praise God for providing for me.  I praise Him for supplying a doctor, who treated me for this condition. 

And, I praise Him for helping me feel improved enough to do what I needed to do, yesterday.

Being Thursday, it was Bible study day.  Normally, I wouldn't think about it, at all.  I would just go.

However, with not feeling fabulous even on Wednesday, I debated whether or not I should make the effort to join my those of my church family, who attend.

Knowing that I had invited a couple I had recently gotten to know, I didn't really want to cancel out.  So, when I felt slightly improved on Thursday, I decided to pick them up (they don't drive), as we had pre-arranged.

Being our last evening of Bible study for 2013, our pastor had arranged for us to arrive earlier than normal.  This way, we could enjoy eating dinner together.

Yes, even though we don't normally do this for Bible study evenings, we celebrated our time together, and enjoyed salad and pizza, for dinner.  I must say, it was delicious!

Afterwards, we had our study time.  And then, prayer time.

I dropped off the couple at their home, and made my way home.

By the time I arrived, I was coughing like crazy, again!  Before I had left home, I hadn't been coughing much.  But, after being out in the cold, I was coughing hard, once again.

Hmmm... I suppose it probably wasn't a good thing to have gone out in the cold.  Especially since, I am still sick.

Speaking about being sick, I asked my pastor to do what God told us to do, in James 5:14, "Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:"

Hopefully, this will happen, soon.  I'm sure it won't be difficult to arrange a time for this to happen.  Most likely after our worship service, this coming Sunday.

I am looking forward to being prayed over.  I believe that this will have a positive impact on the healing I need.

For this, I praise God... in advance!  I am convinced that He will answer the prayer I will receive.

Meanwhile, since I have some things still to do before Christmas arrives, I feel I need to take these next few days and not go outside.

This way, I won't subject myself to being overwhelmed physically, by the cold.  The cold that last evening once again gave me the feeling of having chills, shivering inside me, while feeling like I'm sweating on my exterior.

And, it will give me a chance to rest up, while I'm not in the best physical condition.  After all, I am feeling rather tired, and weary.

Even so, I thank You, Lord... for providing for me.  Even by making a way for me to not have to go outside, breathing in freezing cold air!

No matter the outcome, I know God will heal me.  One way, or another.


Until next time...
