Nausea

As I sit writing to you I am holding on by a thread battling with nausea. I know it has been a long war with this enemy called nausea and I am at the mercy of God to keep me strong. I ask my family to pray when these waves of sickness come upon me and today my mother reminded me of something. My mom and dad are avid prayers for their daughters and I am so glad to have them in my corner of the ring. My mom prayed that no one knows my body better than God does. I know that but somehow it rings truer today. She prayed that even though she carried me in her womb she doesn’t have the know-how to what is hurting my body. She prayed that even though the doctors can do hundreds of scans and tests even they don’t have the know-how to what is hurting my body either. Only my Heavenly Father does and I have faith He will heal me when the time is right. Oh Lord let the time be near! I hold the Bible close to my heart and think of all the people Jesus healed just by words or by touch. God is bigger than this nausea and if I suffer I know God is suffering too with me and for me. As much as my earthly father yearns for my healing and strength I know my Heavenly Father wants me not to hurt even more.

I can’t remember where I heard this but I wanted to share it with you. A woman asks “Why do bad things happen to good people? Doesn’t God care?” She is answered with a story. If we were walking together and you fell and hurt yourself, did I mean for you to get hurt and want you to be in pain or would I stop, bring you to your feet and help you recover? That is what God does in our relationship. He walks with us each step and when we stumble or in my case… fall off a cliff; He doesn’t leave our side. He simply gathers us up in His arms and helps us heal; hour by hour, day by day, month by month or year by year. Only God can tell us when our hurting will cease but don’t you think it is amazing that He sticks with us through thick and thin. He is my rock in my storms…I hope He is yours.

Love Always,
Sarah

(((Sarah))) Even on the days you don't hear from me, know that you are in my heart and prayers every day, many times a day and our prayer team at The Point Church is also praying for you. It breaks my heart that you are still suffering. I hope we can see you soon..we've all been sick off/on this winter. Spring is here and new blossoms and a new season of life. Love you baby girl xoxo Auntie Lynda

Thank your for this post. It's almost 3:00 AM and I'm awake battling nausea again. I'm not sure what's wrong with me as this has been going on for quite a while now.

In our men's bible study thus week, we learned about Jesus sending out his disciples to heal and to teach about His kingdom. We have the power to heal as believers, we just need faith.

I asked Jesus to take away my nause tonight and of course He heard me. That makes me think of John 16:24. Then I googled and came across this post. What a lesson of prayer and faith you taught me. Thank you.

I too am holding my Bible and listening to Woman Thou Art Loosed feeling very sick and needing God's help. I have been sick all week and now dealing with nausea. I hope I get better soon.
