Life after stroke – emotional challanges

It’s a new week and I’m talking about the thoughts and feelings that I have had since having a stroke on the 7th of April.

In my last post I wrote about the disappointments of waking up some days to find that my full recovery is not yet manifested! That particular challenge is teaching me that it takes Faith and PATIENCE to obtain the promises!

In this post, let’s talk about the feeling of what am I to learn from this? Why did stroke happen to me? Is this from God? When will this be over? Will I ever get better? I’ll talk about the last one later!

Well those questions have come to mind! My answer has been something like this! This stroke is not from God! It was allowed by God for many reasons best known to Him. It is my joy and responsibly to discover and find out why – as much as God is willing reveal per time!

I also have a deeper understanding of the scripture that says -“I am the Lord that heals you” Exodus 15:26. It tells me that it is in God’s nature to heal every imperfection as it is in the fallen human nature to be imperfect, to be weak from time to time, and to be broken! 

“The LORD said, “If you are careful to obey the LORD your God, do what God thinks is right, pay attention to his commandments, and keep all of his regulations, then I won’t bring on you any of the diseases that I brought on the Egyptians. I am the LORD who heals you.””‭‭Exodus‬ ‭15:26‬ ‭CEB‬‬

I am assured that being in tune with God and His words, being in Christ Jesus, activates the healing presence of God in my life! 
So why me? Because there is a plan that God is working out and it’s beautiful. I’m assured of healing! It is who God is – The Lord that heals!
