Our loving, kind Father reassures

I am somewhat impatiently waiting for hip replacement surgery to be scheduled as I limp around in considerable pain. This morning I was looking for something in 1 Kings and saw that I had tucked one of the Bible verse hand outs saved from our much loved church up in Myrtle Beach, into that chapter. It was "They that wait on the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings as eagles, they shall run and not grow weary, they shall walk and not faint." Isaiah 40:31.

Such a wonderful reminder that the Lord's timing is perfect, He has His hand on me and is with me every moment. I also am taking it as a promise that I will once again be able to walk and even run again without pain. Our loving and faithful Father is so kind!

Amen sister. As we all age, there are bound to be medical, mental, emotional, problems for most of us. How comforting to know He has promised us all that we will someday (hopefully soon) have a Glorified body for eternity..no more pain.

Pain in our bodies can make life miserable at times, but He is there with us. Even on my worst days, this thought brings me joy.

I GUESS I'LL WAIT ON MY NEW BODY TO RUN! AND FLY!!
Lol Billy, I was kind of trying to figure out how I might fly but likely only in an airplane. :D As for the running, I used to run about 3 or 4 miles a day but that is likely behind me also until the new body.

Thank you so much all of you for praying. There are so many possible issues with this surgery, infection or dislocation being two of the biggest but thankfully there is no fear at least at this point. Just trusting the Lord and thanking Him that the surgeon I wanted and the hospital I wanted are both within my insurance network.

Kem, infection in a joint replacement is rare (1% maybe), but it can happen. Almost a year ago, I developed an infection in my left replaced knee. I'm still on antibiotics and may need to take them 'till the Lord calls me home. I'm ok with that, but I'd rather have not had the infection in the first place. If I'd known about oil of oregano & had been taking it, the infection 'might not' have developed. The first two years after replacement surgery are most critical time for infections to develop. Check out oregano oil, but don't take it prior to or just after surgery and also be 'very sure' to discuss it first with your doctor. It's an infection fighter. Also probiotics help, too.

Popping in to share a positive story - my husband struggled with painful hip problems starting at age 35. He postponed hip surgery for over 15 years. When he finally got his new hip, it was like he was a new person. Neither of us had realized how much the chronic pain influenced his life every moment of every day. It had just become part of the unrecognized background, so ordinary that we didn't notice it until it was gone. Such relief. Such freedom. My prayer is that you will find the pain relief frees you to enjoy life more and serve with new vigor and enthusiasm as my beloved did.
