I was alone and found myself on the floor and not able to get up. Baaad times! But...God came through! I called out to Him to please help me because I couldn't do it on my own. After a couple of minutes the pain lessened and I was able to get up. That was "something good!" I still really couldn't stand or walk but I thank God that since that moment it has been getting better and never returned to that intensity. So this morning when I woke up at 4 a.m. I decided it was time to suck it up and not feel sorry for myself because I had to stay home. I listened to some music and then read my Bible. Nothing I read really inspired me or jumped off the page at me. However, it did do "something good" for me. I started feeling peace...something I've lacked for a couple of days! Then I turned my music up and a couple of praise songs that we sing at church came on. It was good...more peace. It was all good...I talked to God. Not about me or my situation but for lots of other issues I know of. The funniest thing happened...real peace...falling asleep peace without pills! When I woke up it had only been about 15 minutes but I knew the Lord had been with me. I was rested. The peace I could feel was unbelievable and...No intense pain! Thank you Lord!! It's not completely normal yet but I know it will be. Someone I know always tells me..."GOD is faithful!"...and I have come to believe, and know, that HE is!
So I guess what I'm trying to say in all of this is...
No matter what you are going through, if you have the Lord, He will always bring "something good" out of it. Just look for it...HIM...in everything. Then when it happens, accept whatever it is knowing if it's "something good", it came from HIM!!
Father God thank You for all that You do for us. Thank You for all You have brought us through. Thank You for all the times You heal us. Thank You for all the times when You are with us and we don't even realize it was You that helped us. Thank You for saving us. Thank You for giving us everyday that we have to serve You. Thank You for giving us the opportunity to tell people about You and what You do for us. Above all...Thank You for loving us so much that You gave Your One and Only Son to die on the cross for us. To save us from our sins and set us free!! To give us eternal life with You!!
Amplified Bible (AMP)
For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.
