I will bless the Lord at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth. The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous and his ears toward their cry. Psalm 30:1,17
This past Sunday I was in bed, ill.
It's been 8 yrs now with this affliction.
I've prayed all kinds of prayers and asked
for healing multiple times.
His answer has been yes many times, granting me a temporal request.
Other times His answer has been no, like this past weekend.
I've learned to worship Him through it.
"Lord, I know you have the power to heal me and
I know that You want to, but I won't ask you to take the pain away anymore.
I will ask only for You to give me the ability to bear it and rest.
You are sovereign," was the only prayer I could utter.
Shortly after that, I fell asleep.
Many of you won't understand, after all, healing should be done once;
but He answered my prayer of rest, even if it was just for half an hour.
One day He will heal me completely, once in for all.
But until then, I keep depending on Him.
Year after year, month after month, day by day.
