For Ever and Ever. Amen...

In yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I discussed how I was going to worship with my church family.  Well, I did.

What a wonderful worship service we had.  Just like normal.

Of course, with a pastor who preaches/teaches from a truly Biblical standpoint, those of us who listen, are blessed.  Thank You, Lord!

Being the first (1st) SONday of the month, it was once again the time when we celebrated the Lord's Supper, together.  Yes, it was communion Sunday!

Afterwards, I made my way home, to rest.  Just as I had done, Saturday afternoon.

You aren't aware that I had a busy week, last week.  But, I did.

And, I suffered greatly, with pain in my abdomen.  Mainly around my rib cage.

As I've said in the past, even though I am healing, I am truly suffering, still.

It still hurts to wear clothing.  It hurts to move a lot, especially when I do shopping and other things.

If you know me, you'd be aware that after being locked up for such a long time, without being able to go out, or drive, due to being ill and having surgeries, you'll be aware that I try and go out, daily.

As you probably read in the past, for a while I was able to use the outdoor pool.  However, this was only for a few weeks.

Once the weather took a turn for the worse, the pool was closed for the year.

This meant that if I wanted to do some exercise, I had find something else to do.  So, I've been going out almost daily.

I drive, then get in and out, to do a bit of shopping.  Or, visiting.  Or, whatever.

The only thing I have to be careful of, is to not overdo things.  When I do too much, I suffer in pain, still.

Even so, I trust God.  And, remind myself of what He told us in His Word, the Bible.

Like what we read in 1 Peter 5:10-11, "But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.
11 To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen."

Yes, I know He called me.  And, I trust Him. 

After all, He told us that once we have suffered for a while, He'll make us perfect, stablish, strengthen and settle us.

How wonderful is this?!  I believe it could never be better.

Even if I am not yet healed enough to be without pain.

Just as my surgeon said in the past, the surgery I am still recovering from was not a normal-type surgery.  It was not only dangerous, but it was very unique in nature. 

He told me that it will take much longer for my muscles to relax enough to lessen the pain I am having.  This is due to him having to use my muscles to reconstruct me, and help prevent me from becoming nothing but a huge hernia.

I understand what he meant, for I am truly still suffering.  On a daily basis.

As I said earlier, I will continue trusting God.  And, to Him... be glory and dominion for ever and ever.  Amen...


Until next time...
