Can!

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL) today is the last time I'll discuss being sick.

Just so you know, on the evening before I posted here on LwL about being sick and suffering, a Facebook (FB) friend of mine messaged me.  To me, it was surprising.

Because my FB friend let me know that they thought I wasn't well and needed prayer.

This truly touched my heart.

Why?

I knew God had to be involved.  Otherwise, my FB friend wouldn't have had any idea I truly needed prayer.

When I responded, I let this FB friend know that I was truly sick.  And, needed prayer.

I thanked my FB friend.

After this friend read the LwL entry that I posted a few hours later, I was messaged, again.

I was told that while not everyone knows how awful it is to be not well, for a long time.  My friend let me know that they understood the suffering, for it's been common in my friend's life.

Sigh...  I felt badly for my friend.  Just so you know, I've prayed for my friend, for a long time.

Here is something else my friend said (I copied/pasted): 

...it's just so inspiring to know that even with the situation you are in, your faith in JESUS only gets stronger, that your belief that your friends and I are praying for you gets more powerful, and that your determination to still spread The WORD gets more solid. You are awesome, kidd-o, and have always been an inspiration to me and so many others, and thank you so much for that---and thank YOU, LORD JESUS for my wonderful sister Lynn.

Why did reading this make me feel blessed... and encourage me?

No one had said anything like this to me, before. 

Well, as I've said... I've been sick, in pain, suffering and truly haven't had much strength.  But, our Lord, has helped me... each and every day.

Just as we read, in Philippians 4:13, " I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."

It seems He gives me enough strength daily, to do what I do here on LwL.  Just as my FB friend said, to encourage me.

Please know that if you don't see entries on LwL for a while, it means I went to hospital.

Hopefully, this will not happen.  For God is our healer.

But, prayer is still needed.

Not just for me.  Also, for my FB friend.

Thank you, my friend... for praying.


Until next time...
