SICKNESS HAS A LIMIT! On February 5, 2019 as I enter into Open Heart Bypass Surgery, I choose; hope over despair; faith over chance; life over death; and my physical, mental and emotional being shall overcome one of life’s obstacles.

In all sickness, the Lord said to the waves of pain, “Hitherto shall ye go, but no further.” His fixed purpose is not the destruction, but the instruction of His people. Wisdom hangs up the thermometer at the furnace mouth and regulates the heart.

 

The limit is encouragingly comprehensive. The God of providence has limited the time, manner, intensity, repletion, and effects of all our sicknesses; each throb decreed, each sleepless hour predestined, and each relapse ordained, each depression of spirit foreknown, and each sanctifying result eternally purposed. Nothing great or small escapes the ordaining hand of Him who numbers the hairs on our head.

 

The limit is wisely adjusted to our strength, to the end designed, and to the grace appointed. Affliction comes not at haphazard – the weight of every stroke of the rod is accurately measured. He who made no mistakes in balancing the clouds and meting out the heavens, commits no errors in measuring out the ingredients which compose the medicine of souls. We cannot suffer much more nor be relived too late.

 

The limit is tenderly appointed. The knife of the Heavenly Surgeon never cuts deeper than is absolutely necessary. “He doth not afflict willingly, nor grieve His Children.” A mother’s heart cries, “Spare my child:” but no mother is more compassionate than our gracious God. When considered how hard-mouthed we are, it is a wonder than we are not driven with a sharper bit. The thought is full of consolation, that he who has fixed the bounds of our habitation, has also fixed the bounds of our tribulation.

FLIGHTS OF INSANITY

September 11, the innocent were on the flights
And with no comprehension, knew not their plights,
The ideologically demented – they were on board
Fanatically disillusioned, was their concept of God

In their anguish and anger they commandeered the planes
With impunity for themselves, but for life, nothing but disdain,
So with instructions from “Sheol” they crashed into the Towers
Shockingly unimaginable destruction came in less than an hour

With so many lives that seemed headed for the grave
New York’s rescuers, exemplified the true meaning of – ” brave”,
Rushing into the buildings not knowing what to expect
Down came the mighty Towers and the smell of death

O! Father of light and Giver of unmerited grace
In this our darkest moments, show us Thine face,
Bless our aching hearts with a preamble of Your plan
For we trust in Your goodness, when you raise Your “right” hand

This tragedy is so immense, we just cannot comprehend
But this evil, we are sure, You will bring to an “end”…

“When pain is to be borne, a little courage helps more than much knowledge, a little human sympathy more than much courage, and the least tincture of the love of God, more than all.” [C.S. Lewis] LORD, HELP US TO UNDERSTAND THE MYSTERIES OF YOUR MERCIES!

 

 

Ann Romney: Your illnesses and your recovery, use it as a blessing and not for self-gain, I know, I am a Cancer survivor and woke up from a Coma!

I would never attempt to speak for God but I do express my own opinion and that is, when we fall to illnesses and face daunting odds but yet live, God gives us that special blessings to pass on to others for His Glory and not for our self gain.

 

Whether or not that gain is for money, position, power, I think it doesn’t sit well with our Lord who paid the ultimate price for our redemption. I faced odds that in accordance with the best medical that money could pay for, I was never going to live. According to the Doctors, the root of my cancer was in the marrow in my spinal cord and without a “marrow transplant,” there wasn’t any hope for me.

 

My entire medical escapade was written out some years ago and for whom ever that might be interested, it would only take a few minutes of your time to open the link and read the contents.
