Dippy Little Hippie: Part Deux


This post is about something wonderful that happened Tuesday evening. I’ve waited two days to share this in the event that I’m just going crackers (always a possibly) and everything is what it still is (or was, in this case) but I appear to be healed folks! To God be the glory. Amen?!

Many have been praying for me about my excruciating bursitis hip pain. Thank you. I appreciate your kindness more than words can express. I have as well, of course, been bringing this to the Throne of Grace. You know, when one is ill, the world becomes a very narrow place because it’s all about “what do I do next to stop the hurt”. The hurt can be physical or spiritual. Wow. I had forgotten how small a world can be when that happens. I, too, had prayed off and on again all day (not just about myself but everything laying on my heart). I spoke to my Holy Father and told Him that no matter how He chose to heal me, I give Him the glory. Whether he uses medicines or surgery or a miracle healing, it’s His healing hands that hold me. That evening during a TV commercial break I stood up to leave the room, and there emanated from my hip a loud POP! It sounded like someone clanked two bones together. Being right next to me, Steve even commented on it and said, “Wow, that had to hurt.” No, it didn’t hurt. I walked down our short hallway without hobbling and there was no pain. Took care of things, came back, there was no pain. Sat back down, still no pain. No burning, no anything! I began to praise Him for His healing. Even now, there’s still no pain. I’ve been waiting to hear from the doctor’s office about scheduling an MRI for the hip, so, I tried yesterday to get a hold of them to cancel to no avail. I’m kind of at a loss as to what to do now. Need to speak to the Doc and see if they’d like to do another X-Ray.

I hope I’ve learned a lot from this experience.

  1. God cares about our woes. HE hears our cries and knows our hearts.
  2. HE answers prayer. It may not be the answer we’re looking for or want or the time frame we want, but HE always answers.
  3. HE wants to have a relationship with us.

May my words help someone to feel not so alone today, because, with Christ in our hearts, we are never alone. He is listening right now. He knows what your need is before you even know you need it! Turn to Him. Trust in Him. Thank you Jesus.

Please share if there’s anything I can pray about for you today. Even an “unspoken” is fine. He knows what that unspoken is. God bless.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” [Romans 15:13]

For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” [John 3:16]
