I have been absent from the blog front for awhile. I learning new things about the Lord in the storm. Storms in the past have been all about my husband, my children, our finances, etc…but my life has significantly changed. My heart is learning a new language. I’m on a new battlefront.
My health. I am, as I shared previously been struggling with dizziness, but after a MRI, it has been found that I have no temporal bone on my left side, and little on my right side. I haven’t shared much because quite honestly, typing for long periods of time is challenging. I miss it very much. God is making something new again in me.
I reflect on the past months and my diagnosis makes so much sense to me finally. Hearing my own voice in my head, my heartbeat, my eyes moving, the imbalance, all adds up to a diagnosis of superior canal dehiscence. I can’t even say that word. Yet, I know the diagnosis. I’ve researched, I have looked in to what this could be. I am thankful for the people that have gone before me to pave a trail for hope. If I had started having these symptoms 15 years ago, I would have been sent to a psychiatrist. Now, in this time…
They can do a surgery on my skull, a craniotomy. I have to go through a bunch of tests before that, but God has been orchestrating it all.
He found me a vestibular therapist who urged me to go to a neurologist. I went to Rush. The MRI done was top notch and found this bone issue. The next morning, yesterday, in fact, found me in the office of the head of the department of Head and Neck Surgery at Rush. He can do this surgery that he says will greatly improve my life.
Friends, these are the verses of the day. I’ve heard it said that this is for Israel. This blessing is for Israel alone. My friends, I know the Lord spoke these words. I know that …2 Timothy 3: 15-17 MSG: There’s nothing like the written Word of God for showing you the way to salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another—showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God’s way. Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us.
God is taking care of me. He visits with me, He keeps His good promises to me…He has plans for me, good plans, peace, and why? so I can have hope. I place my hope in my God.
10 For thus says the Lord, When seventy years are completed for Babylon, I will visit you and keep My good promise to you, causing you to return to this place.
11 For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome.
12 Then you will call upon Me, and you will come and pray to Me, and I will hear and heed you.
Friends, He has good plans for you. It may not feel good when we are going through them. But we are never alone. Never.
2 Corinthians 4: 7-12 If you only look at us, you might well miss the brightness. We carry this precious Message around in the unadorned clay pots of our ordinary lives. That’s to prevent anyone from confusing God’s incomparable power with us. As it is, there’s not much chance of that. You know for yourselves that we’re not much to look at. We’ve been surrounded and battered by troubles, but we’re not demoralized; we’re not sure what to do, but we know that God knows what to do; we’ve been spiritually terrorized, but God hasn’t left our side; we’ve been thrown down, but we haven’t broken. What they did to Jesus, they do to us—trial and torture, mockery and murder; what Jesus did among them, he does in us—he lives! Our lives are at constant risk for Jesus’ sake, which makes Jesus’ life all the more evident in us. While we’re going through the worst, you’re getting in on the best!
