All in Physical Health

Seasons

I grew up in the 50’s & 60’s, in a loving home with both parents, in the little town of Chatham, Virginia.  Economically, I guess we were considered poor, but we were rich in faith.

I was taught to live so that no matter how many rocks were turned over, no dirt would be found.  I’ve seen powerful demonstrations of the power of God, miraculous, divine healings as both a recipient and a witness.

But that’s when the symptoms were most apparent. Two - three minutes into praise and worship, I was struggling to catch my breath and feeling for the seat behind me. Generally active and having never before experienced shortness of breath, I was caught off guard. My normally exuberant praise was reduced to a slow, flat footed sway, back and forth, side to side.

I started the day, not long ago, with a smile, only to become afflicted with severe pain in my side. A few days later, recovered from the pain in my side, I began a succession of ailments afflicting me every few days plus an allergic reaction to a medicine. I did not see an end to this and asked the common human question. “Why me, Lord?”
