I know that GOD Almighty Loves me and that HE Loves me so much that HE gave HIS Only Begotten Son, in the flesh, The Man, YESHUA, JESUS The CHRIST, to become the ransom for each one of our sins and I know that HIS HOLY GHOST dwells within me.
Still, there are times when I do not feel like HE is with me. I can be skeptical and cynical. There are times when I want a tangible experience, so The FATHER works to stretch my Faith in things unseen. I marvel at the many ways HE has met me where I am, especially today.
When I first began my walk I was in "therapy" for chronic major depression, PTSD, anxiety, bipolar, sleeping disorders, etc…. While in session one morning it just came upon me that I did not need this anymore, all that I needed was in HIM & HIS Way. I asked the therapist if she wanted to pray, she said no, I then told her that I was done and no longer would be needing her services. I hadn't been on the medications for months, because of Faith.
I slept better than ever and from that moment on having given it all to HIM, I have not suffered from any of those “illnesses” again because HE let me know that they aren’t illnesses (diseases) at all, but symptoms & results of being in, and of, this world.
Now I am not saying that anyone should dump out their medications. What I am saying is that is what I did and that is what worked for me. I was also diagnosed with diabetes & had been on medication for it for years, that also went away, along with many other "sicknesses". This is what I did & this is how HE has worked in my life. Full blown AIDS? Gone! Fibromyalgia? History! Osteoporosis? Another one bites the dust! Hmph!
GOD Almighty is ready, willing & able to do anything! Anything! Above & Beyond whatever we could even imagine! I realized that HE was my safety net & that HE would see that I not only had a testimony that could help introduce others to HIM, but that I was also a living, walking, breathing testimony of HIS Healing Power, able to stand again, balanced & secure.
Our One True Living GOD shows HIS Love to us in many ways. HE affirms us & HE speaks to us in very personal ways. How has GOD affirmed you? How has HE made HIS Presence known to you? How has HIS Son, JESUS The CHRIST, spoken to your heart? Look & listen, HE is there.
Dear FATHER, Thank YOU for YOUR Patience with me and Love for me. Thank YOU for all that YOU have put in my path to help me find spiritual health as well as physical health. Please forgive me for my weakness of Faith and teach me to Trust YOUR Word rather than my thoughts & feelings. Please continue to stretch my Faith in things unseen. I Pray to YOU, FATHER GOD, in YOUR Son's Mighty & Precious Name, YESHUA, JESUS The CHRIST. Amen.
