Here I was again on my knees in my closet, praying; no, I was begging God for help. Day after day and night upon night, I struggled to breathe. I searched tirelessly to find a doctor that could help, but to no avail. Thousands of dollars spent for tests and still there was no answer for my breathing problems. My husband watched helplessly and would cry with me as it seemed that each day I grew closer to death.
What was a soul to do? How I had bared my innermost thoughts to God in prayer. Did he not hear me? Was I so horrible to look upon that he would not visit me in my darkest hours? Foolish thoughts from a mere mortal. I had forgotten Job in his trial. I had forgotten Abraham and Isaac.
God had not forsaken me. He was proving me and proving himself to me. When I completely rid myself of me and worshipped the Great Physician, healing came. His love engulfed me like a vapor, yet was stronger than any vise grip. No physical being could have held me with greater fervency.
Thankfulness. The word encompasses endless meanings. To me it will always bring to mind how I learned to be thankful for each breath God gives me, one breath at the time.
