No More...

Hopefully, you read Life with Lynnie (LwL) a few
days ago. 

If you did, you'll know that on Good Friday, Friday, April 14th, 2017, I sat beside a woman at the worship service, who normally worshipped with another church group at a different location.  And, we sat together, at the back of the sanctuary.

The lady who sat beside me, was named, L.

L let me know how she had knee replacement surgery done.  Truthfully, since she had trouble with her knee, had to keep moving her leg in various ways, and even had to stand up for a few minutes, I felt sorry for her.

Knowing that L mentioned she had her knee replaced, I truly thought it had been done, days earlier than when we met.

Why would I think this?

Well, she seemed to have a lot of pain.  And, had trouble dealing with the pain.  Yes, she had also mentioned she had pain.

I must admit, I truly felt badly for L.

You see, when my mom was alive, she had both her knees replaced.

Plus, on Monday, April 3rd, 2017, my cousin E... who lives in Lake Havasu City, Arizona, USA, had her knee replaced.

Yes, my cousin has pain.  However, she told me that due to having over 6 hours of treatment daily, she has been able to walk.  And, even ran for a few seconds. 

Wow!  When did I hear about this? 

I had a conversation with my cousin E, on the evening before I met L, at the worship service on Good Friday.  This means I spoke with my cousin E, on Thursday, April 13th. 

To be honest, I was so happy for my cousin E, since she has been able to function well, even though her knee replacement surgery happened, only 10 days earlier!

Not only did I thank God when I spoke with my cousin E, by telephone.  But, I thanked God again, on Good Friday.

You see, I mentioned to my sister in the Lord, L... who sat beside me, about my cousin.

She seemed upset hearing about how well my cousin was doing. 

Why?  L let me know she had her knee replacement surgery more than six (6) weeks earlier.

Sigh...

I asked L if she was having the same treatment that my cousin E was receiving.  L let me know, she did not.

Believe me when I say I let L know I would pray for her.  In fact, silently, I prayed for her, at that time.

Thinking about how L and many other people are suffering, made me think about Jesus.  And, about how He suffered.

Thinking of how Jesus suffered, made me think of Isaiah 53:5, "But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed."

Yes, He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed.

Jesus paid the price for sin.  For the sin of the world, of all who would believe upon Him... and gain salvation. 

Jesus paid the price for so much, for us.  He suffered for us.  And, paid the price for the sin of all who believe upon Him.

By His stripes, we... who are of His family, are healed.

Hopefully, through prayer, anyone who is need of healing, who is truly a member of His family, will be healed, here on earth. 

I must say, I'm praying for healing not just for others, but also for myself.

However, the fact remains that even if we do not receive total healing while we are alive, we who are of His family here on earth... will be healed when our life here on earth ends, and we are taken to Heaven, to be with Him, forever. 

At that time, we will have no more pain.  And, no more suffering.

For this, I am thankful.  And, always will be.

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...
