#1,519 Sick again.

Well, I thought I had 100% beat my stomach issues since I made it almost 8 months without having an attack, but last night it came back to haunt me. I’ve been home most of the day trying to feel better and I really feel like God is trying to teach me a lesson about arrogance. I thought I was well, but I have to keep leaning on Him after all. It maybe isn’t going away completely but I’m thankful He gave me a respite from the pain for as long as He did. I also think it’s a sign that going to Italy is maybe not the best plan for us this year because less than 30 minutes after buying the plane tickets, a heavy dread set into the middle of my gut and manifested into this. Martha will be coming out 2 weeks before we planned to leave and I really need to be here managing the (hopeful) traffic from that, we might be better served by saving all that money for something we don’t know about yet, and I just don’t know what we would do if I became ill while we were there. It would be terrible to say the least. I used Delta’s 24 hour risk free cancellation and made that worry vanish. So anyway, I’m hurting so much tonight but I’m thankful for the storms that keep me on the path God has made for me and I’d appreciate a prayer for endurance if you’re the praying kind.

  1. Praying that God will heal you completely. He is the Lord our healer. I received miracle healing last year, I know He will do the same for you. Don't stop praying, your miracle is coming Blessings, Debbie

  2. But when Jesus heard it, he answered him, saying, Fear not: believe only, and she shall be made whole. (Luke 8:50) .. Praying for complete healing from the Great Physician!

  3. So sorry to hear it! I suppose the one silver lining is that it happened now, rather than on the other side of the world!, and that you had time to rethink your travel plans… Hopefully there's something even better in store for you on the other side. Prayers, friend!

  4. I am happy to pray for you! You have brightened my mornings many times with your optimism and gratitude and good cheer. I hope you are healed very soon.

    If I may, I don't know if you've gone this route already, but keeping a food journal might give you a path to follow. Marks Daily Apple (paleo lifestyle website) has many stories of people with stomach troubles healed by dietary changes.

    I often think we should all keep stress journals as well as stress harms our bodies in hidden ways (I know firsthand!).

    God bless!

  5. Praying For You! (And I Really Don't Know Why My Phone Capitalizes Every Word!!!)
