Feeling Ill Lately – God answers with a Miracle

Commentary by:  Gordon King

Jesus Christ, my God, Lord, Master, Savior, Friend, Counselor, Teacher, Provider, and Healer.  Yes he is all of these things and more to me.  He is always with me and will never forsake me!

This is a little embarrassing, but I thought that my readers should know that over the past few days I have been very ill.  Nothing too serious, but I came down with a very bad case of the flu.  Every symptom that you could imagine, I have it or had it.  I won’t get into the details, but I’m sure you could imagine what I am talking about. 

Even though I have been sick, I have done my best to keep this blog updated, maybe not as usual, but close.  I have been a little disoriented and confused and have managed to post what I have only with the help of my Savior,  Jesus Christ!  Amen

Another reason that I wanted to post this was to inform you of what God has done for me.  I have been feeling so very ill lately.  I know that my boss will have a difficult time replacing me if I am out sick.  I thought for sure that my boss (who is new by the way) would tell me that I needed to report back to work ASAP!

I have been speaking to the Lord and I told him just how terrible that I have been feeling.  Of course he already knows this.  I have been praying for healing, but I also told him that I do not want to return to work until I am better.  Not only for my own benefit, but for others at work as well.

You need to understand something about me.  I am not the kind of person that calls in sick to work.  Almost never!  I get 80 hours of sick leave per year and am lucky if I only use two of them (usually for doctors appointments).  I don’t want to leave my coworkers in a bind.  I have to be deathly ill to call in sick, as long as I feel I am not posing a health risk to others.  Actually, I have been very healthy and almost never get sick.  This has been my work ethic ever since I can remember, from a young age.

The Lord has been speaking to me and told me that if I return to work ill, I may infect others and that it would not be wise to return until I am better.  I knew this message was from the Lord, so I felt much better in making this decision.

So I called work and told them how sick I have been, they already knew that I was sick as I called off one day already.  I told my boss that I could not come into work and would call him each day if needed.  Then I spoke with the human resource woman at work and told her my symptoms.  She said that I needed to see a doctor, and that I could not return back to work until I am 100% symptom free for 24 hours!

So I went to the doctor today, he told me not to work for at least another week.  Then to call him in a week for an update.  He said that he would not clear me to return to work until I had no symptoms whatsoever. 

Praise the Lord!  This is exactly what I wanted to happen.  This is a miracle for me.  They both told me exactly what the Lord had told me: “Don’t return to work until you are completely better”.  You might not quite understand where I am coming from and it seems so simple to some, but to me this is huge.  I dread, literally dread calling into work each day and telling my boss whether I can or cannot come to work.  I also know my body and if I returned to work I would be completely miserable!

This is just a small miracle in my life, but small miracles occur daily in our lives without us really taking note of it.  Or of giving thanks to God for it. 

I see this and accept it as a miracle in my life from my Creator, big or small, a miracle.  I receive this miracle as a blessing in my life and I thank God for it!

God listens to us, when we feel good, feel bad, are sick, are healthy, depressed, happy, lonely, hurting, angry, whatever, whenever.  He hears us.  Whether or not he answers us is up to him, how he answers us is up to him, when he answers us is up to him.

My point is that God is performing miracles in the world each and everyday.  Whether they are small ones like mine, or gigantic ones like the parting of the Red Sea.  He continues to perform miracles and I believe he will increase his miracles up to the end.

So listen to the Lord, talk to him, tell him how you feel.  You never know, he just may perform some miracles in your life!  Look for the miracle.  Accept the miracle.  Thank God for the miracle!

Praise God, Glory to God, Bless our Father in Heaven!  For he is mighty, mightier than all, Creator of the Universe and all that dwells within!  Amen

Thank you God!  Thank you!
