Two weeks into some type of upper respiratory thing, I am feeling like maybe I need to brush up on health and healing scriptural affirmations. Waking up every day, moaning, groaning, and uttering less than positive affirmations, reminded me a little review was in order. First it was thought to be the flu, and now it is thought to be bronchitis. The last two days have focused devotions on this topic, and I feel a bit better. Antibiotics, cough syrup, vitamins, rest, etc, etc. also converged on the sickness. Yesterday was my three month checkup with my oncologist and port flush. I also got an H1N1 vaccination.
Funny story afterwards. I went to the grocery store to pick up food for a church small group last night, and after checking out parked the cart outside the store and walked to the car to bring it closer. (Back issues are still present.) As I am walking out to the car, I reminded myself. "Do not forget the cart full of food". I was also fighting through a migraine headache and had lots and lots going through my head after the oncology appointment. I make it home, and unload other things, and then when I go to unload the groceries, remember that I had left them outside the store, and drove home without thinking about it. After a good laugh at myself, I headed back, and they were still there, patiently waiting for me.
Sickness leaves us not at our best, and prone to mistakes. I land on the side of the belief that God wants us well, and desires to help us be our best. So, this two day review may last a while longer, and I hope to be motivated to groan and moan less and affirm God's Word more.
Lord, thank you for being full of mercy with every mistake and for providing everyone and everything we need for good health.
