Still, there are times when I do not feel HE is with me. I can be skeptical and cynical. There are times when I want a tangible experience, so GOD works to stretch my Faith in things unseen. I marvel at the many ways GOD has met me where I am.
When I first began my walk with GOD I was in therapy for major depression, PTSD, anxiety, bipolar, etc… 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 and within HIS Word. I asked the therapist if she wanted to pray, she said no and so I then told her that I was done, and no longer would be needing her services or her medications. I went home and dumped out all of my medications. I slept better than ever and from that moment on have given it all to GOD, and I have not suffered from any of those “ailments” again because GOD let me know that they aren’t illnesses or diseases at all, but symptoms & results of being a part of, and in, the world.
Now I am not saying that anyone should dump out their medications and stop going to therapy. What I am saying is that is what I did and that is what worked for me. I was also diagnosed with diabetes and had been on medication for it for years, that also went away, along with many other sicknesses. Again, I would not tell anyone to just stop taking any medication prescribed by a doctor without first researching it and talking about it with your doctor, but this is what I did and how HE has worked in my life.
GOD is Able to do anything! Amen!! Anything!!! Above and Beyond whatever we could even imagine!! I realized that HE was my safety net, and that HE would see that I not only had a testimony that could lead others to HIM, but that I was also a living testimony of HIS Healing Power, able to stand again, balanced and secure.
Our One True Living GOD, JESUS CHRIST, shows HIS Love to us in many ways. HE affirms us and HE speaks to us in very personal ways. How has GOD affirmed you? How has HE made HIS Presence known to you? How has JESUS spoken to your heart? Look and 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 emotions & feelings. Please continue to stretch my Faith in things unseen. I Pray to YOU, LORD JESUS, in YOUR Mighty Name. Amen.
