Health Update

Saw the neurosurgeon today. As for the neck pain and headaches, he's thinking it is caused from stress and tension which is causing a pinched nerve, but wants to rule out other possibilities first. So had a neck x-ray done.

I tell you, I must be literally glowing by now with all the MRI's and x-rays taken in a years time.

Then we went on to the feet. This is a downer, but am trusting and believing in the Lord. (more below about my feet, felt compelled to add Scriptures here). This thought just come into my mind when it was filled with the words, Come Lord Jesus come, won't you come my Lord. The song on the next post just seems so befitting for today. Wow! How good is He!

Hosea 6:1
"Come, let us return to the Lord,
He has torn us to pieces;
now He will heal us.
He has injured us;
now He will bandage our wounds."

Matthew 4:23-24
23"Jesus traveled throughout the region of Galilee, teaching in the synagogues and announcing the Good News about the Kingdom. And He healed every kind of disease and illness."
24 News about Him spread as far as Syria, and people soon began bringing to Him all who were sick. And whatever their sickness or disease, or if they were demon-possessed or epileptic or paralyzed--He healed them all."

Matthew 8:16-17
"That evening many demon-possessed people were brought to Jesus. He cast out the evil spirits with a simple command, and He healed all the sick. 17This fulfilled the word of the Lord through the prophet Isaiah, who said,
'He took our sicknesses
and removed our diseases."
Matthew 15:30
"A vast crowd brought to Him people who were lame, blind, crippled, those who couldn't speak, and many others. They laid them before Jesus, and He healed them all."
Mark 1:32-34
32"That evening after sunset, many sick and demon-possessed people were brought to Jesus. 33The whole town gathered at the door to watch. 34 Jesus healed many people who were sick with various diseases, and He cast out many demons. But because the demons knew who He was, He did not allow them to speak."
Luke 8:50
"But when Jesus heard what had happened, He said to Jairus, 'Don't be afraid. Just have faith, and she will be healed."
Luke 17:19
"And Jesus said to the man, 'Stand up and go, for your faith has healed you."
James 5:16
"Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest power of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results."
1Peter 24
"He personally carried your sins in His body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By His wounds you are healed."
All verses were taken from the NLT
There are so many references to God healing in the Bible. I only listed a handful of them. The one most important to remember I believe is 1Peter 24. Because of Jesus' great sacrifice we will be healed. Better known for "by His stripes we are healed." This is why I believe in healing. The Lord is mighty to save. He is the God of Love. The Lord of healing.
As for the results. The neck pain and headaches with the one day of numbness in the left side is still unknown for sure. The feet, I have something neuropathy. It is worse than he first thought. Basically my nerves are about shot in my left foot and pretty much so in the right foot. I have no feeling (which was a shock to me) from the tip of my toes to the top of my ankle on the left and almost as bad on the right.
He feels I have the onset of Type 2 diabetes if I don't already have it. I have to get rid of my belly fat. The way it was explained, when we age, we all will start to get a belly bulge. This happens as our bodies start to decompose inside. The first place it sends the extra toxins is to the base of the body, our feet. It is very important to keep the body fat in the belly down. So an important life style change has to happen quickly. I'm prone to heart attacks and strokes now as well. He is concerned about my feet and told me we are going to have to be very careful.
Also, when we carry the excess weight and the diseases start to occur, we are taking years off of our lives. Basically, I'm setting myself up for an early death in as early as 10 years if I don't start acting now. Talk about getting someones attention! That hit home. Well it all did, but that especially. Hubby and JJ are taking it much harder than I am. I just have to hold onto faith that the Good Lord is going to heal me. He will help me with the hunger pains. He will walk this journey with me. If I don't hold fast to Jesus, then I'm setting myself up for failure, as we can never take the journey on our own.
So there you have it. Change of lifestyle and eating habits, or miss out watching my grand kids grow and enjoy them. I chose to be around for many more years and make my body young again. It's all hereditary darn it. :( Okay, I know, no whining and no negativity. It's my party and I'll cry if I want to...Hee hee, no, no crying here. The Lord has given me a warning, and I'm blessed that He has told me now instead of when it's too late to do anything about it. Thank you God!!!
I so wanted to share this information with you all so that none of you ever have to experience this. Take good care of yourselves. Keep that darned bulge of aging away. I wish you all good health, healing for those who are facing health issues, strength for those facing other trials and tribulations and ask that the Lord fills all areas of weakness in your lives. May he bless you in every way. May you stretch out your hands to Him to give Him thanks and praise!
Thank You Father God for Your wonderful blessings You have shown me today. Thank You for all the wonderful people You have introduced to me through here, building a wonderful community of friendship that goes beyond. You are an awesome God! Thank You!!!

I read your entire post and then realized that you changed your background - ha - very nice, by the way.

Tammy, no worries. This is your hint to move forward with the knowledge that you have and the faith to make it happen. Just don't jump in and make a mess of it; take it in stride with Jesus by your side and you'll find you've won the race :). AMEN!

I know first hand how strong our faith is and yet how it still hurts to be struck by the flesh - but God is greater than our flesh. AMEN!

Love to you, sister and I'll be praying with every thought of you.

♥ Heather

Thank you Noelle. I hope to be able to do it soon.

Thanks Heather for the support! Your wonderful! You are so right. It's our faith that keeps us going.

Thank you sweet Denise!

Thank you RCUBEs, you are so right about the wonderful sisters we have.

Bless you all dear sisters for your prayers and support. I could never thank you enough!!!

Like your new background. Very nice.

You certainly have a great attitude, and I pray the Lord will help you stay committed and willing to do what it takes to lose the weight. It is a hard battle, I know, but we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.

Thanks for the info on belly fat. I didn't know that, and I have quite an accumulation which is ever so hard to get rid of. That is going to have to become moremof a priority, I see.

Tammy, know that God knows exactly what you are going through. I know He is more than able to see you through this and there is not a doubt in my mind that you will in fact be around to see your grandchildren grow up. Stay positive and keep reminding God of His promises! I have learned He loves to hear us speak His word back to Him as a reminder of what He has promised and said to us.

When the days gets unbearable and you are feeling down, hold on tightly to God's unchanging hand my friend. Hold on tightly.

Yes, you may use the poem. I pray it helps many, many people to remember to keep God first and to give Him our time which is His.

God bless and love you.

Praying for you my friend.

Great-Granny, Thank you. Yes it is important to get control of our belly's. I've been doing some research tonight and am just swimming right now. What a wake up call this has been. I plan on sharing much more through out the next days. It is a hard fete, but it can be done. Thank you for your support! It means a lot.

Valerie Lynn, that is so sweet. Thank you. You have so much wisdom in the Lord. I am holding tightly and have decided to use this time of not having little ones running around to delve into the word and actually take the time to really learn whole heartedly. This is such a huge wake up call for me.
Thanks for your support.

Love to you both and many blessings. You are all such wonderful, sweet, kind, caring, friends/sisters. I am so grateful for being led to one another.
