Time Will Tell!

Before I begin today's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I would like to thank each and every one of you, who have prayed for my daughter, P.  Thank you, friends. 

Please note, I will keep you informed, as to whether or not her condition improves.  I'm trusting God, it will.

Today, I thought I would give you an update on how I'm doing. 

It's been a while.  And, since I've had some people ask me how I'm doing, I thought I would take the time to let you know. 

First, I must thank you for praying for me, also.  I appreciate your Christian love and prayer.  May God bless you!

Please know that I pray every day, for you, also!

After my last medical appointment with the surgeon here in town, that I was referred to, I thought it would be quite a while before I saw him, again.  He was supposed to have gotten my post-op records from an earlier surgery.  He hadn't.

In fact, he told me I should get them.  At the time, I felt that it was a case where it was just another excuse to delay my surgery.

He told me to obtain the records and then call his office, to obtain an appointment.

To be honest, by the time this occurred last year, I was fed up.  With our medical system.  With our healthcare workers.  And, even with the surgeon.

In fact, I must admit that I felt in my heart that I didn't even want to see this surgeon, again.

After 15 months of being told to not bend, lift, stretch, carry anything, not even a purse, I prayed about it.  And, made the decision to ignore what I had been told.

I began carrying a purse, again.  And, I began bending, lifting, stretching and carrying.

Okay, I must admit, I didn't do it very much.  Or, very long time wise. 

Even though I had pain and swelling at times, I began feeling slightly stronger.  For this, I praise God!

Before, I could hardly open some doors, on buildings.  Even pushing a door, caused me pain.  Never mind pulling a door!  That was even worse.  And, still is!!

However, I do believe I am able to do more than I was able to do, previously.  Even if it's not as much as before I suffered with this health problem.

Over the course of the last few months, I have also changed my prayer request to God. 

Yes, in the past, I prayed for total restorative healing.  But, I also had prayed that God would provide a way for me to have the surgery I needed, without any delay.

My newer prayer requests have been that God will make a way where there isn't one, for me to be healed, totally.  Without surgery. 

Only He can give me a miracle healing.

I realize that some people don't believe that God provides miracles, today.  But, I do.  I've experienced a few, in my life.

And, God told us in His Word, that miracles did happen, after Jesus' life ended. 

Just as He did in Acts 19:11, "And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul:"

In a way, I believe God has shown me that He is giving me a miracle healing.  Hopefully, I am correct in my thinking.

You see, with two (2) infections poisoning my body (the staph infection MRSA, and the ABSCESS), I believe my immune system has been reduced.  In fact, I believe that may be one reason why I got sick with that Lung infection that I'm still recovering from.

Thankfully, I am coughing less.  In addition, I am no longer experiencing sinus problems.  For this, I praise God!

I am breathing easier.  Even if I still have heaviness in my chest/lungs.

Now comes the part where I will explain why I believe God is giving me a miracle healing!

When I was given antibiotics, etc., to help me fight off the lung infection, I wondered if I would be healed.  You may think that strange.

But, think about this:  With already having two (2) infections in my gut going strong, I wondered how those normal and not ultra-strong antibiotics could help me at all, given the fact that the lung infection I was diagnosed with, became a third (3rd) infection for my body to fight off.

Hmmm... after praying about this, I asked God if it was His plan to allow me to get sick with that lung infection, to show me that I was indeed receiving a miracle healing from Him. 

After all, I have no way of knowing what is going on inside my gut!  I have no way of knowing if those infections are running rampant, or if they are quietened and under control.

After waiting upon Him, I woke up one day thinking that the antibiotics were working and I was being healed from the lung infection.  Again, I praised God!

Because of this, I came to the conclusion that the only way that I could be experiencing healing of the lung infection, was if the other two (2) infections in my gut, were under control. 

And, here I was being healed!  Thank You, Lord!

Please know that I am not yet 100% healed from that lung infection.  However, I do believe I am experiencing the last part of the healing process. 

Hallelujah!  Thank You, Lord!

Soon, I'll be seeing that surgeon, once again.  For some reason, his office receptionist called me and gave me an appointment to see him. 

He doesn't want to see me, alone.  Instead, he wants my daughter P to be with me. 

Hmmm...  At this time, only God knows why.  But, time will tell!


Until next time...
