I would like to thank you for your calls, texts, thoughts, prayers, emails and WordPress comments inquiring about my health after my last blog: CLICK HERE TO READ HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY
I feel better now, but in the past seven days, I experienced excruciating back pain at least four of those days. At times, I had to take baby steps from point A to B, with assistance. On August 5th, I had an emergency visit with my Pain Management and Intervention Physician. He and I agreed in an effort to protect my kidneys, without prescribed medicine, a home Tens Therapy Pain Reliever Device is essential; Lord willing I will get it on Monday. Also, I am schedule for my first acupuncture treatment on August 31st.
Perhaps most of us have experienced mental, physical or spiritual pain simultaneously or different times. We are told in II Corinthians 12:8-10 by Apostle Paul “Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me.” But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
My body might be weak but my mind is strong for the Lord. During difficult times we must not perpetuate our faith to become Satan’s playground. The Israelites’ experience teaches us that we should not focus on our circumstances and oppositions but focus on God.
On August 3rd, I had a follow-up appointment at Florida Cancer Specialists to receive no good news; more to follow when labs are repeated on October 26th. Praying results are better!
On October 5th, I have a follow-up appointment with my nephrologist to check my kidneys function. Praying all is well!
“But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,’ declares the LORD, ‘because you are called an outcast, Zion for whom no one cares.” (Jeremiah 30:17) You have proven that you indeed care…
Conclusion, again, thank you all very much for the kindness you have shown me in words, thoughts and deeds. Please remain safe in the arms of our Lord and Savior Jesus.
