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!
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...
