Before I begin today's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I wanted to mention that if my parents were still alive, it would be their wedding anniversary. I truly miss them, and miss celebrating with/for them.
If you read LwL yesterday, you'll know that I believe God answered my prayer.
As I had mentioned yesterday, the prayer I was doing, was to be healed from the Abscess Surgery I received in London, Ontario, Canada, on November 17, 2016. Hopefully, you read that the healing took me about two and a half (2 1/2) MONTHS.
Okay, you may think this was easy, but I must say, it wasn't. After all, the treatment I had was daily and sometimes twice daily.
What do I think happened?
Well, after finding out that I wasn't healed, and that I had a tunnel inside me of about three (3) inches still, it didn't make me happy. After all, it was already February, 2017!
I do need to tell you that God did something for me, to help me. I believe He answered my prayer for healing.
On the day I found out that my daughter, B was missing, I was highly stressed. And, did not do much else than pray. Well, other than be upset and cry.
That evening, I asked God to keep my daughter alive. I asked Him that if He felt He needed to take one (1) of us home, that He would take me, and not my daughter.
When I was in the kitchen about to fill up my kettle with water, I talked with Him.
I asked Him to please... remove all the infection inside me, that had caused the abscess, and was preventing me from healing, because of the tunnel inside me, and the draining that was constantly happening.
Just as I finished filling up the kettle with water, I all of a sudden thought that maybe I had spilled water on me. I felt wet down my legs.
I looked at the floor and saw all this fluid. It was shocking!
At first, I asked myself... did I urinate? I knew I hadn't. But, then I realized that it was infection draining out of me... all over the floor.
Even though it weakened in volume, I continued to drain for a couple of days. Yes, I had to use items to protect me from draining on my floor and furniture, but God helped me!
Plus, I asked my nurse if the drainage happened due to the stress I was experiencing, or if she thought my God (not her god) might have done this to answer my prayer.
She let me know that it could be either. I trusted Him, that He was having this happen to heal me. Especially, since my daughter was found the next day!
Yes, I still was draining. Just so you know, the fluid being drained from within me, was infection. But, eventually, it stopped.
This was when I began healing, quickly! I felt like it was a miracle He provided for me.
All I could say then, was thank You, Lord!
Just as we were told to do, in Psalm 107:1, "O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever."
Yes, I gave thanks unto the Lord, for He is good: for His mercy endureth forever!
I will NEVER be unthankful to Him.
He has been so merciful to me. His mercy for me was truly extreme!
For this, I thanked Him... over, and over, and over again. And, always will.
Thank you, Lord!
Until next time...
