A Healing Journey

Near the end of last week I felt unwell. The next day I was sick. All kinds of thoughts tend to go through my mind when sickness shows up. I know that in my belief in God that I am supposed to believe I am healed. I struggle with this many times. Instead, I find my mind taking a walk down a path of unpleasant possibilities and I work on shutting down those thoughts. It's not peaceful at all. This time something was different. I mean, the sickness came out of nowhere. I was perfectly happy and healthy and then "Wham!" It hit me.

In my conversations with God as to why this happened, a scripture came up in my thoughts and would not leave my mind until I did what it said. It's from 1 Thessalonians 5:18 "In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."

It might sound bizarre, but that's what I did. I thanked God for allowing this sickness to flow through me to strengthen me and my immune system from other diseases. I thanked God for the new antibodies my body was creating. Would you believe I found it so much easier to thank God than to believe I am healed? I found more things to thank Him for each time I did it. There was a time to rest, for extra hydration, for placing us in an apartment with a kitchen where I could make tea and my own homemade soup. I thanked Him for having someone to help take care of me. Most of all, I thanked Him for allowing my body to heal all affected cells and getting rid of the ones that did not support me not having a perfect homeostatic state.

Would you believe the next day I felt 90 percent better? I had energy again, almost all symptoms subsided and I felt fantastic! I had to postpone my fishing trip with Ernest's uncle because of the illness. This is something that I really want to do. Now....I can do it! What a difference in the journey of healing. I feel more settled and connected to God by giving thanks for all things. I didn't feel strained or forced into believing in healing. Perhaps healing comes from having an even bigger heart of gratitude in thanksgiving for all things.
