Well I never thought I would write a post like this :-
Yesterday I wrote for those with a crying heart.
Today it was me.
I have never (to the best of my memory) ever felt as sick as I have done today.
I took some tablets this morning at 8 am as a part of a 24 hour collection for liver studies.
My family can testify that I nearly wore the floor out … pacing backwards and forwards for ages.
Symptoms ranged from nausea, terrible anxiety and yes even fear, worse brain fog than usual and this constant need to move.
I felt helpless (as I write this nearly eight hours later, I still feel unwell; but praise God it is lessening).
The reason for me writing this is that through it all … my heart was crying.
oh! yes, I felt sorry for myself; but my real heart-tears were crying for :-
All those going through chemotherapy, radiation and any other medications/treatment.
Treatment that makes them feel unwell.
I watched my mother and my brother suffer the side effects of these.
I know that they help many and prolong life in many cases.
I am not writing about my thoughts on this.
I am just pouring out my heart, tears are brewing just thinking about this as I write.
This is for you, dear one.
Anyone going through situations medically where you feel you have no control.
Anyone going through medication protocols where you just feel you can’t take it anymore.
My heart cries for you … and for your loved ones witnessing what you are going through.
Please allow me to pray for you now.
Loving Heavenly Father,
I come to You now, the Great Physician
I bow at Your feet and pour my anguish out for those suffering
Any going through medical treatment where they feel they have no control
Anyone who has been unwell for a long time
Anyone awaiting results of a “what may be” serious nature
Lord You know all
Lord Your love is as vast as the ocean
Lord You care for and know when even a little sparrow falls to the ground
Please pour Your healing virtue into these dear people who need You so desperately
Please grant wisdom to all who are caring for them
Please send help to those who are going through illness alone
Please comfort them, please comfort their loved ones
I give You all the praise, honour and glory Lord
Comforter, Deliverer, Healer, Saviour
In Jesus Name I pray

When I first saw this image, to me it was a picture of someone suffering and downcast, and the Saviour ever so near and leaving His loving touch upon a hurting person. Just before I posted this, I realized it may be someone inflicting pain on another … this is not my intention. I see the imprint of God’s love and His promise that He will never leave or forsake all who put their trust in Him. I do not intend any harm by posting it with this message … please forgive me if it offends anyone … definitely not what I want to do in posting this.
