If you read Life with Lynnie (LwL) recently, or if you know me personally, you'll know that I wasn't happy about being in hospital in June this year.
Since I was extremely sick, and had terrible infection within me, I not only was given four (4) strong antibiotics at the same time through the picc line, I had installed into my arm. Yes, I mentioned this, previously.
However, I haven't really discussed much else about what I went through.
Whenever I was extremely sick in the past, my sugar level rose. In the past, whenever I healed, my sugar level would then return to a normal level.
When I went into the hospital in June, my sugar level was again very high.
This didn't surprise me. But, I was surprised at how differently it was dealt with.
An endocrinologist came to see me, when I was in the emergency room (ER) at the hospital.
To be honest, I had seen and known this doctor for a very long time. Yes, he had seen me when I needed help, in the past.
However, we used to worship at the same church. For many years.
Instead of giving me pill treatment, I was given insulin.
I have always hated the thought of insulin. And, never... ever... wanted to have to take it.
Yuch! That was so upsetting to me! And, I felt so very sad.
But, I didn't have a choice. I had to use it.
Just so you know, I didn't have to take just one (1) type of insulin. I was told I had to take two (2) types of insulin.
The first type of insulin was a 24 hour insulin. The second type of insulin was something I had to take prior to each time I ate a meal. :'(
Did this make me happy?
If you saw how I typed :'( ... then you'll be aware that it made me unhappy, and tearful.
Even so, I didn't have a choice in the matter. So, I just decided to do what I had to do.
With praying, I did it because I knew that my Lord would want me to experience what was demanded of me. So, I did it. And, thanked God for helping me deal with it.
Thinking of this, made me think of Colossians 3:17, "And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him."
After all, even though I could have refused to take the insulins, I decided to do what I felt God would want me to do. I accepted what was demanded of me.
To me, it's so important to do what God would have us do.
Do you feel that way?
Have you put God first and foremost in your life?
After all, He loves you. Just as He loves me.
He loves me, because I am a family member of His.
Do you know how to become a family member of His?
All you need to do is trust in/believe upon our Lord, Jesus Christ... and you shall be saved (Acts 16:31).
By doing this, and gaining salvation, you not only become saved, but you become part of His family.
This makes me truly happy regarding my life.
Hopefully, it has made you happy regarding your life!
Until next time...
