Oh I HATE when this happens . . . I know it has been a while since I posted a blog on here, and for that I do apologize.
The reason(s), I am presuming,
- are as follows:
- My last article STILL impacts my heart and my brain
- The busy ‘things’ that happen in life are at times overwhelming
- I still live in this fleshly body which from time to time likes to SCREAM at me with symptoms that I long ago stopped speaking and claiming!
So, here I sit at the keyboard, with so many thoughts and ideas running (quite competitively) through my head and find myself coming up with nothing. The screen stares back at me and I can almost hear the laughter . . . yes, I do have a vivid imagination ♥
Perhaps a good start to posting would the third thing mentioned above. Struggling with weight issues, complications arose from that and the way I lived my life, my body really went down hill. One day it dawned on me that everytime (or so it seemed) that I went to a doctor there were more diagnosises placed upon me. And, like a dutiful patient, I started ‘claiming’ them. Yep, talked about them ALL the time. The result of such behavior on my part? Steady declining health.
Once I realized what I was doing to myself – the fact that God’s Word clearly tells us that “The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” Proverbs 18:21 – and that everytime I was speaking the diagnosis, I was giving it more power over my body – I had a decision to make.
I chose to change the way I spoke!
Do the doctors and tests still say that I ‘have’ certain things? Does my body still ‘feel’ like it has certain things? Hmmm. . . I think you know the answer to that . . . but I no longer speak or claim them over myself.
God’s Word also clearly tells us distinctly that as Jesus Christ hung on the cross of Calvary, He not only took upon himself my sin, but also my sickness, infirmaties and diseases! (Mathew 8:17). . . that means . . . when He said “IT IS FINISHED” . . . it WAS!!!
There is a spiritual battle that goes on between God’s Word and my body . . . it is a fight that has already been won, I fully know and understand this . . . but battle heats up from time to time and I must stand firm with The FULL Armor on and trust that my body WILL come in line . . . for . . . I AM HEALED!
