Pain... and Prayer!

I'll be telling you, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL) about how last week was rather difficult, for me.

Knowing that I need to become stronger in order to have the surgery I need, and knowing our weather has been like spring weather, I decided to do something I hadn't been able to do since before I had the first of several surgeries, in September 2012.

I went and walked outside.

Being so weak, due to having had all those surgeries/operations, I haven't been able to anything like this.  Well, at least, not for such a long time.

On Tuesday, I did it.

Truly, I felt like it nearly killed me.  But, I had prayed for God to help me.  And, He did!  I was able to do it.

After arriving home, I hurt all over.  Yes, it felt like every muscle in my body was hurting. 

This was shocking to me.  After all, all I had walked was about a block!

Sigh...

I took Ibuprofen.  Not once.  I took it several times Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

And, I prayed that God would take the pain away.  By later on Thursday, I felt improved.

So, on Friday, I did the same thing, again!

And, came home in pain.  Yes, it was rather severe, all over again.

Again, I took Ibuprofen.  And, prayed.

Yes, He answered my prayer.  But, not just due to the pain.

You see, on Friday, I drove to where I thought the walking would be good for me.  Level surfaces, etc.

Just as I was arriving to where my intention was to walk, it began raining.  :'(

This was so very upsetting to me.  After all, I felt I needed to do the walking.

So, I stopped my van, and prayed.

I asked God to stop the rain.  To hold it off, until later.  Or, to even just let the rain clouds move away.

A few seconds after I prayed, I decided I should just drive home.  But, as I began to drive, I noticed the rain had stopped!

For this, I praised God!  Hallelujah!

Thank You, for answering my prayer!  And, for answering it, so quickly!

By Him answering my prayer as fast as He did, I knew it had to be His desire to provide for my need, and answer my prayer.  After all, He heard my prayer.

Thinking of this, reminded me of 1 john 5:14, "And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:"

Yes, this is the confidence that we have in Him, that, if we ask any thing according to His will, He heareth us.

He definitely heard me when I prayed.  Thank You, Lord!

For this, I will always be thankful!  Especially, since I had to suffer physically again, after doing that walking.

I know... a block isn't long for most people.  It's probably not for you.  But, it is... for me, due to my weakness.

Even so, I am grateful and believe God will heal me.

So, one again, I will... thank You, Lord!


Until next time...
