God is the Best Physician

I had been dealing with some health issues during the months of July and August. I went to the doctor. He ran all kinds of tests and hasn't been able to find anything. I've been praying and praising God for being my Great Physician and Shepherd. I've just been dwelling on His goodness to me. Well, much to my surprise, as quickly as the symptoms came on, they have apparently left. The only thing I can say is "God has healed me". I went from having a "spell" about every other day, to not having any symptoms in about 10 days now. Praise the Lord! He is good. He sent forth His word and healed me! (Psalm 107)

I've been memorizing scripture and doing a lot of praising God - in the good times and in the bad times. I can tell you one thing for sure. Phil. 4:6-7 is true: "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God and the peace that passes all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus."

It's so true. There isn't any explanation for why my "episodes" are gone, except for the peace that passes all understanding.

Next time you are anxious about something, say scripture over and over to yourself and see if it helps! Anybody else find that to be true?

I love that you posted this particular Scripture, Janet! Last week I was going through a rough time, and I received an email from a gal who completely made my day. She addressed it, "Hey Sweet One!" and had that very verse as her signature. This past weekend I went to the Deeper Still event in Orlando and God spoke so many words over me that I could barely contain myself walking out of there. When I phoned my mom to tell her all about it, we got to talking about things and I'd mentioned that her testimony came in handy recently for a friend who is struggling. Mom had her own "wake up" of a moment when she realized that it was nearly a year ago that she and my dad were wrestling with the decision of having to move to North Carolina for dad's job transfer. While on our yearly vacation last year (when they revealed to us that they might have to move), she wrote the words of Philippians 4:6-7 on the mirror in her bathroom, and it gave her such peace. Now, a year later, mom and dad are loving their new lives in N.C.!! Praise God for His goodness and His Living Word!!!!

I'm so thankful for your healing. I will definitely continue to keep you in prayer! <3
