This was good to me.
Today was a particularly difficult day for me, being that my stomach began aching throughout the day. I know why and I'm sure most women know why; and I will not bore you with the details. I made an attempt to be usual about the day, interacting and just being present.
Most times I can get into "my own world," where it's just me and Jesus. Music, fellowship, a time of adoration. So, this day I really wanted to make an effort to be "present." Try to, at least.
My stomach was warring against me [ooooo, dramatic, I know]. But, enjoy this! I'm a writer! lol :} So yeah my stomach was warring against me and it's so bad for me on the first day. Awful, man.
I was in and out of spending time with my family; up and down the stairs.
Then finally of about four hours, I went upstairs to bed [it's still daylight, remind you! and, family is HERE!] to sleep it off. Sleeping it off works for me. Because, my mind is at rest and I am unable to focus on my aches and pains.
Was resting for a few minutes and then the Holy Spirit comforted me with "Ask and it shall be given unto you." ...I was like, HEY, WHY NOT :} [PRAISE GOD!] \o/
So I place my hand on my belly while still lying down; fetal position, hello!
And asked the Lord to take the pain away in Jesus' name so that I could enjoy my family. It was not a lengthy prayer, but it wasn't a two-second one either. Amen so I got up, believed it within me; said "And it is so" within me. And, went downstairs fairly immediately.
The pain subsided. I was able to even get down with my sisters and play some hardcore WII! lol. The aches did not come back. [AMEN!]
SO I SAY UNTO YOU,
TEST OUT YOUR FAITH!
When you test out your faith, YOU are not testing God! You are not. No man can. Try your FAITH, not your GOD. Check your FAITH, not your God.
Grow in grace, dear friends. Grow in grace.
LEAVE, In the Name of Jesus
