I have had quiet a ride the last week. I was hit hard with COVID. I seem to have won the battle. I see my doctor today to verify that. I am very sure that if I hadn’t taken my shots I would be gone now.

______________________________________________

Have you had similar things happen to you? Have you been hit with a sudden illness? You certainly are not alone. Over a million people have died from COVID. Doesn’t seem to be any let up insight.

______________________________________________

We need to rely on God. We need to cling to His promises. He is in charge and He will take care of us if we ask.

Humility isn’t thinking less of yourself, but thinking of yourself less.

C.S. Lewis

Pretty much shows us the right path to walk.

Many people feel the world owes them something. What follows is a list of what many people strive for when they have pride.

Manifestations of Pride (appear one at a time)

  • A lack of gratitude in general (2 Chronicles 32:25).
  • Being irritated when people don’t see your gifts, your abilities, or your importance. (1 Corinthians 4:7)
  • Being consumed with what others think (Galatians 1:10)
  • A lack of service (Galatians 5:13, Ephesians 2:10)
  • Being disrespectful to authorities (1 Peter 2:13-17)
  • Not having close relationships (Proverbs 18:1-2, Hebrews 10:24-25). Self-sufficient, don’t need other people.

Do you relate to anything on this lists? If so, do a check on what you need to do to escape this trap.

_______________________________________________

Remember:

You are not alone.

You are not forsaken.

You are not unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

Well, I told you on Monday that I was in the hospital for black stools. I have been home for one week and a new ailment has come knocking at my door. It is bad stomach cramps, plus constipation. There is much pain in several parts of my body because of it.

It seems similar enough that I may have some more difficulties with Polyps. I see my Gastro doctor on July 1st, He may know what to do right away. (I hope)

___________________________________________

Sorry I am sharing such unpleasant things right now, but that is what is in my world right now.

___________________________________________

How are you doing? Do you have health issues? Does it seem hard to face life, because you are suffering so much?

I hear you. It isn’t fun to go through this.

There’s things to remember through all of our adversity:

  1. All things come to an end eventually. Be strong.
  2. All pain should be used to help others. Go to someone who is suffering and help them.
  3. I always think of the pain Jesus went through for us on the cross, and realize my pain is pretty small.

___________________________________________

God didn’t promise us a rose garden, but He has many other promises we can cling to. Persevere and He will reward you.

Never let the dark side pull you down. Stand tall and know that God is in Charge.

___________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

Sorry I missed a couple of posts. I was in the hospital.

Here is the whole story…

I started having dark stools. I mean pitch black. I called the gastro clinic, and tried to make an appointment. The lady that answered looked for some openings and told me it would be a least a month out to get an appointment. She then told me that she would put me on long a waiting list, and hope for an opening would come from a cancelation.

I thought it would be dangerous to wait that long and was checking other cities for their gastro people.

Before I could make an appointment, the same lady called me back and said there was a cancelation. THAT HAD TO BE GOD!!

I got in to a PA lady, and she told me that I needed to go to the ER. I asked why. She said it would take to long to treat me there.

So, my wife and I went to the ER. When we got there the waiting was pretty light. It still took us three hours to get in.

I got in and a lady doctor came in and asked me questions, and said turn over. She whipped my rear and walked out. (Embarrassing moment.)

They decided I needed to have the resident gastro doctor come in to see me. He did come in and asked a bunch of questions. He decided I needed to have him look inside me, and that would happen within the next hour.

The time came and they sent me to la-la land. When I woke up they told me that I had four polyps in my stomach that was causing the bleeding. They took them all out and said I should be OK.

They kept me over night to make sure that it was success. My next “sit down,” showed a beautiful brown stool.

I was able to go home later that day.

_________________________________________________________________________________

This was pretty traumatic for me. This is because they told me what it could be before they did the procedure. I didn’t like any of the choices.

Colon cancer

Stomach cancer

Ulcer

__________________________________________________________________________________

It was none of the above..

It was that the polyps were bleeding.

__________________________________________________________________________________

Have you had something similar to this? Have you wondered if you were going to be OK?

FEAR NOT!! I have no question in my mind that God was in charge in my situation.

  1. a canceled appointment the same day I called? Impossible!
  2. They found nothing from their scary list? Amazing!
  3. The quick recovery? Thank you Lord!

God made everything work for me, and He will for you too. You just have to believe He will.

__________________________________________________________________________________

Never think everything is lost. God is right there with you. He will guide you through the storms.

I always say, 99% of what we worry about never happens. Give the rest to God.

I have been battling sadness the last few weeks. I have gotten a report that I have a hernia, and the surgeon I met said he won’t do it because of my age and medical condition.

I am seeking a second opinion to see if I can still have the surgery. However, I am feeling very bad that I have to live with the pain, and stop some exercising I was doing.

The doctor prescribed a device for me to wear the rest of my life, that is suppose to “push,” the hernia back into it place. I do not want to wear a device the rest of my life.

_____________________________________________

Have you struggled with you health like I am doing now? I completely understand the boat you are in. I am on it with you.

I am working hard to be positive throughout all of this. Here are some things I have been leaning on to help me with that:

  1. I need to be thankful that it is only hernia, and try to stop the pity parties. That doesn’t go well with my children.
  2. I need to know that God will provide the answer to all of this.
  3. I need to pray often, and without ceasing for strength.
  4. I need to still go on walks to keep some semblance of strength.

_____________________________________________

Why don’t you make your own list of ways to plow through your walls you are facing? It made me feel good by doing these for you.

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

I had a stressful week. I was having chest pains, and went to see my cardiologist. There were some blood tests done, and she said they came out great. She said that often chest pains come from your heart having to work overtime. I wasn’t sure what that meant. However, she assured me I could keep exercising and live my life normally.

What a relief! I have congestive heart failure, and I struggle with palpitations all day long with A-fib.

I have decided not to worry about it and enjoy life.

__________________________________________________

Have you had stress come into your life? Did you get a not so good doctor’s report. Did you lose your job? Did someone you loved passed away? You certainly are not alone. There are many people in the same boat with you.

So, what do we do to survive in this not so friendly world?

  1. Remember, 90% of what we worry about never happens.
  2. Be strong and keep on keeping on.
  3. Let God take care of your worries. He has big shoulders.
  4. Know that God knows even the hairs on your head. So He knows everything about you and what you need.
  5. Cling to God’s promises. He will never cause you to face more than you can handle.
