I Asked for This, Got This and That!

For many years I had an allergy that I used allergy medication to control.  It's amazing how when you pray for one thing, so many other things are revealed to accomplish the original desire in your heart.

Knowing that I would have children one day, I began asking God to help me prepare my body so I'd be ready when that time comes.  One of the things to be done was to be delivered from the allergy.  As a result, there would be no need to require any foreign subject in my body during or after the gestation period.  This way my babies would not be exposed to a substance that could possibly harm them.  Not only that, but so my body would not be damaged by this medication.  After you take something for such a long period, there is the potential for damage to your organs.

Hum, all I can do is laugh.  God is so awesome!  He knows just how to stir you and help you grow.  Several things happened.  One thing being the occurrence of an uncomfortable situation that resulted in me seeking my Father through a drastic fast.  Actually a detox/fast combo; I shut my whole body down with several days of not eating.  Yep, I did it!  Somebody is saying you are crazy, no food at all.  (I wouldn't recommend this to anyone without talking to your doctor; it is draaaaasssssstic.)  This was the best thing for me though at that time in my life.  Will I do it again?  Uuum, I don't know.  But what I can say is, afterwards I felt as though someone had stepped inside my body and washed all the walls (so to speak) down.  It was a huge spring cleaning for my soul and my body.

The greatest thing is that I realized when the symptoms of this allergy first occurred.  Many years before, a major burden arose in my life that caused me to harbour resentment in my heart.  At least I saw it as a burden then.  Coincidentally that is the same time the allergy symptoms occurred.  Uuuum huuum, Bingo!  The root cause of the problem was now revealed. The funny thing is, I remember upon visiting the allergy specialist at the time, him stating to me, "We don't want to treat something for a long period of time and mask something else."  I didn't understand that statement at the time, but now some 18 years later, I get it.

So without a doubt, repentance and forgiveness were necessary and repent and forgive I did!  As a result my healing was manifested.  To God be the Glory!  Shucks here I am seeking God about one thing and was delivered from something else.  Dear God, you are nothing but THE ABSOLUTE BEST!  Thank you for my healing and may someone else receive the same!

28 That is why you should examine yourself
before eating the bread and drinking the cup.
29 For if you eat the bread or drink the cup
without honoring the body of Christ,
you are eating and drinking God’s
judgment upon yourself.
30 That is why many of you are
weak and sick and some have even died.
31 But if we would examine ourselves,
we would not be judged by God in this way.
32 Yet when we are judged by the Lord,
we are being disciplined so that we will not
be condemned along with the world.
