I was scanning through my blog and it occurred to me that I never did an update on my health from over a year ago. For the whole story you can look back in my archives for it. (Jan 2009 and I think Oct. 2009)
I am praising God every day of my life since I was privileged to watch how God cleared my brain of cloudy apathy and indifference to Him! I have been a Christian for over 35 years, and was often a busy bee in our church and loved the Lord, but slowly like a current song says...."it was a slow fade" and I withdrew from Him and just showed up at church for services and left untouched. Then He decided it was time to wake me up and remind me who He is and that I am special in His sight!
As my earlier blogging explains in more detail, I had surgery, heart attack, and a long time of discovery to find out I had a heart rhythm, problem that was fixed through a procedure and now I am healed.
The journey was amazing! I was shocked to discover I had these problems and amazed to see His hand on my life through a year of unknowns. I was in a Woman's "Beth Moore" bible study that spoke to me weekly about who He was to me and how much He cared for me. The best part was that I had a peace that I have not ever experienced before.
I can't explain in words how different my heart is today...oh funny me...both hearts I guess....my physical heart is working fine and my spiritual heart has healed the most.
This year our Woman's study was in Revelations 1-3 about the end times and God speaking to the 7 Churches to wake up! Oh how awesome is He to allow me to learn about myself and to see more clearly how He was working in my Life! I recognized myself in 2 of the Churches most clearly. The church of Ephesus had left their first love and His direction was to overcome and return to Him. That was like reading about my last year in retrospect! But as the lessons moved on I saw myself again and again and how I need Him in more ways than I can express. Another church that described me was the Church of Laodicea - the lukewarm Church - I was this person too...and from the passive unclear past I was gently shown that I will die if I stay in that place.
Praise God for the love He has shown me and the renewed walk that He is leading me on.
