Beginning a new journey......this time In Jesus (2)

 This morning I started my day as usual, I sat up and moved my legs to the floor. That action alone causes me to Thank The Father and Jesus. I tended to our dogs and then read God's Word. After a period of meditating on His Word, I came to this site. Alex Mason had posted a wonderful testimony about her life and how God changed her. This for some reason brought to my memory, my second visit to my primary care VA doctor. My wife and I had just gotten married, I had just been baptized in my wheelchair and I had the letters TIG (Trust In God) tatooed on my right arm. The doctor had just given my wife and I the provisional diagnosis of ALS (Lou Gehrigs disease). I confidently told her that the Lord would heal me. Her reaction was comparable to "yea right". She sent in a social worker to inform us with all the help the VA would give us. I told the social worker the same thing, that God would heal me. The social workers response was to inform us of where to go on the internet to learn more of the disease and the hopeless situation I faced. 

I had spoken from my heart and the moment I said it, I did truly believe it. The tatoo of the letters representing Trust in God, was placed upside down on my forearm, it was for me, so no matter how desperate the situation became I would be reminded in whom I should trust. The disease continued to steal the life out of my body and in time I would give up. Yet, the tatoo remained and the words that I stated had still came from my heart; even though I had given up and wanted nothing more than to die. Proverbs 16:1 "The preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue, is from the Lord". The Lord had prepared my heart, even though consciencely I had given up, the beliefs of my heart, held true. The day of my healing I remember looking at my tatoo and thinking Trust in God. That's all I thought, it was not followed by any other thought. It was later that afternoon, that God healed me through the finished work of Jesus. God's timing is always his and always perfect. This is a lesson, Proverbs 4:23 "Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues/stuff of life".  It is also a lesson in that words: from the beliefs of our heart (good and bad), come back to us. 

Mood: cheerful
