I mentioned a couple days ago that I have been feeling under the weather – my asthma has been acting up, and my breathing has been much more labored.
I want to thank those of you who prayed on my behalf – your thoughtfulness and kindness mean a lot to me.
By God’s grace – along with the effective and fervent prayer of the righteous here on WordPress – I am starting to feel better. I’m not quite out of the woods yet; I will continue with my halotherapy pretty much every day, and keep myself indoors as much as possible (except for the occasional field trip to the beach!).
As I reflected on my improved state of health this week, these verses from Psalm 103 came to mind today:
While I still have asthma, I am definitely better than I was even a week ago. So I thank and praise God for putting me back on the road to recovery, even though I’m walking on it slowly. I also want to thank Him for all the other wonderful promises found in Psalm 103 (it’s a great chapter of the Bible – if you haven’t had the chance to read it, you may want to do so soon). We serve a loving, kind, and exceedingly benevolent God.
Dear Lord, I thank You for placing me back on the road to recovery, with the firm admonition that I am to walk slowly and not hurry myself. After all, the last thing that I desire is another relapse, as I’ve already had one of those earlier this year (and I’m not eager to repeat the experience).
Thank You also for the kind individuals who took the time to say a prayer for me. I ask that You return the blessing back on them, Lord, and whatever their hearts’ desires may be – provided that they align with Your sovereign will and purposes – I ask that You grant their requests.
Thank You for being such a compassionate and kind Savior and Lord. In Your name I pray, Amen.
