The Lord is with you

I love to read the Bible.   I've been a Christian for many years.

 Since 1981,  I started suffering from dizzy spells.   They would come up on me, just anywhere and any time without warning.   Lasting about a second or two.     I remember going to the doctor and he said, well, you may have a brain tumor.   I didn't believe that.   At least I didn't want to believe it.    So, without really going in for any tests.   I just took it in stride.   It became a daily part of my life.  
Finally, a few years ago,  I had to see the doctor about getting some medicine for acute bronchitis.   As the doctor was listening to my breathing, he asked me if I also suffered with back problems.   At times, I said.   He then did something to my head and neck, which caused some pain in my right shoulder and the base of my neck.    Ah-ha!  You have a pinched nerve.   He informed me that when I'm stressed the nerve will pinch.   Hmm.  I didn't know that.  
I was glad to find out what was causing those problems.   But, just took it all in stride.   Its been a part of my life for so long that I never thought of asking the Lord to heal me.     Well, one day... I just got fed up with that nerve.  Not only was it causing dizzy problems but it was now making my right hand numb.   And this isn't good as I love to write.    

At the time of this writing,  I am currently believing for the Lord to totally heal that nerve.   And I believe He will.  In His timing.    At times I do have pain.  And He does take that away.  

I just wanted to encourage your heart today.   If you are going through something.   It doesn't matter if its an illness, or maybe your hurting in some other way.   God is a Big God.   And He is able to heal.   He is able to restore.    I want to share some scriptures that I am standing on.   And when you read them, allow His peace to flow into your soul and into your heart.  

"Behold, I will bring it health and cure, and I will cure them, and will reveal unto them the abundance of peace and truth."   Jeremiah 33:6

"Bless the Lord... who healeth all thy diseases."  Psalms 103:2-3

"He was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed."  Isaiah 53:5

This really blessed me...I will be meditating on these scriptures for my healing, too.

Thank you, for your comment.
Here's another scripture that I like to claim as well. It's found in III John 1:2 - "Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospers.
