Far More Precious Than Rubies and Gold

Good Morning friends...Oh,'s afternoon.

Good afternoon, my friends! I thought I would give you all an update and share what the Lord has been doing in my heart.

I slept better last night, even though I was in some pain. I played a DVD series all night long as I was in and out of sleep. It ministered to me in my sleep, as well as being the first thing I heard each time I woke up.

Eating foods with potassium is really not all that hard. It's in a LOT of stuff. Which is one reason why I am finding it hard to believe that even though it can cause these symptoms, that it is the main reason, as I normally eat fairly well....Hmmmm.

The pain in my back is getting better, though it is still annoying, it's better then it was. The pain in my left arm is what is the most troublesome right now (and the cold that keeps me up coughing and blowing my nose at night YUCK, yet just leaves me feeling like poo all day).

My friend called yesterday, her husband is in school to become a D.O. and he said to look up Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. I did, and I'll be!! It almost describes my arm/shoulder pain (though it's not really my shoulder, but right above it, in that little pit) to a T!

I know if I took some Aleve it would take the edge off, but I have to admit I am a little afraid....The Lord took away the heart palpitations YEAH! Yet I hate to admit, I am still afraid to take anything, not knowing what caused them. Though I also have to admit, I think my own fear had something to do with the extent of them.

The Lord has been ministering so much truth to me. I know He brings good out of ALL things! I am asking Jesus to help me stay focused on Him and His truth. Who I am because of Him, and how much He loves me. This is the only way to keep fear away, to be resting and trusting in Jesus. He is the lover of my soul. Even as I type these words I feel any fear left in my heart fading away.

You know, the enemy doesn't have any real power over us. That's why he is "The Father of Lies" he only has deception. It is only when we begin to agree with his lies instead of God's truth that fear, frustration, anxiety, and such can come in.

OH, Jesus, help us to focus on you Lord. Help us to continually look to you and remember that you paid such a great price for us because we are so valuable to you. Far more precious than rubies or gold! Thank You Lord for your truth that sets us free. May the truth that has set our spirits free, do the same in our souls (our mind, will, and emotions)!

Being Loved By Him, With You,

My goodness girl,,,I've been having wicked shoulder, moving down to my fore arm pain. It's been happening now for almost three weeks. I JUST started to take medication and icing it. I believe it started when I started exercising and I believe it was when I was walking. I thought it happened when doing the weights but the Lord called to my mind the other day a few weeks back when I was walking the track (like a speed machine I may add, LOL) that I turned to look over my shoulder to make sure no one was behind me and I felt a little pull..I believe that is when it happened.

I've been resting in the Lord and giving Him my thoughts (2 Cor. 10:5) The enemy of course has been bombarding me with the 'worse case scenerio'..I've been telling myself,,'don't go down that road, rewind that thought and start back to the truth,,God's Word'.

God has show me a lot of truths though through this time of physical pain and what others experience 24/ I've been praying for them a lot...

Love ya girl, and yes it's good to see you back sweetie.

So sorry about the pain Daveda. I know that fear is a reminder for me that I am living from my head instead of my heart.. it helps me to adjust my focus (sometimes) to a heart perspective.

Blessings, Bob

I had that same kind of shoulder pain. It took a few months, but it finally went away. Praying yours does too...

Mat 8:17
That it might be fulfilled which was spoken
by Esaias the prophet, (Isa 53:4)
saying, Himself took our infirmities,
and bare our sicknesses.

Sickness and dis...ease
often starts with a broken heart.

Even if the sickness doesn’t start with
a broken heart, once your heart is healed
your immune system will work for you
and not against you.

A merry heart does good like a medicine:
but a broken spirit dries the bones.
Proverbs 17:22

Isn’t that part of your immune system?
The marrow of the bones?
White blood cells?
Red blood cells?

When you want to be healed
start with your heart.
