Today marks my first guest post in my online blogging existence, coming from my friend Rads Radam (left), a nurse by profession. I’ve had the privilege of hearing this story from her firsthand, and I got so encouraged by it that I cajoled her to write about it. Here goes.
Will you ask someone for something when you know He cant follow through?
For the past week I was experiencing pain in my left leg as if there was a big pressure on a nerve.
I actually took this lightly for a year now, since the nature of my work involves standing, walking around for hours, and even running. But the pain this time was unpleasant.
I can’t walk for even half an hour straight without feeling any discomfort.
So I finally asked God. I know being a nurse doesn’t just involve me sitting down and not helping any one of my patients at their bedside. A nurse is now crying to God to help her, heal her.
I knew this is not how He wanted to use me.
I believe in grace, i believe in faith. This time He asked me to use it. He asked me to sing, shout, and even jump for this breakthrough that He is about to give me.
So i did. The first jump was hard, painful. But that pain was overpowered by hope.
My God loves me.
The pain is over. Not for long.
Last night I decided to walk the talk. I took the bedside task and just as expected, it was tedious.
Lots of things happened, making it certain that by the end of the shift my legs would fail.
That’s what I thought so. As my shift neared its end, I was not feeling any pain at all. As if I had a new set of legs.
I’m just in awe. I’m just so grateful.
My God healed me.
He reminded me that sometimes we forget to ask.
We don’t ask because we think too much.
We forget that the God that parted the Red Sea then is the same God we have now.
His forte is the supernatural. God can follow through.
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9)
