Homeward Bound

Where did May go…especially since this writer underwent lumbar back surgery and fusion? Then, two weeks later, while recovering with acute physical therapy, a large hematoma developed in the wound site, pinching the nerve to the left hip, causing excruciating pain, which resulted in a second surgery at the same site! Then an infection developed at the bottom of my 55 staples incision, wound site- resulting every 12 hours with infusion of heavy duty antibiotics for four weeks! Then, one week later, a swollen right foot and leg put me back in the hospital for possible blood clots. A CAT Scan revealed two blood clots, one behind the knee of my right leg, and another in my right lung! My doctor immediately put me on a heavy duty blood thinner just in time! And so today, Sunday, June 8, 2014, sleep deficit, nerves firing up in my right leg, muscle spasms and cramping in my right leg, trying to get through the constant pain, yet I praise the Lord God through Jesus Christ for the timing of putting good doctors and nurses and technicians before me to eliminate the problems and get me back on the road to recovery! How great and merciful and loving is our God, the blessed Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit! How inadequate my prayer of thanksgiving and mercy I constantly pray to Him. I wish I had the words to deeply thank Him for His guiding and healing hand. In all my setbacks, I sensed His presence, knowing that He has more for me to do before my time. All last night, in constant pain, I walked with my walker, up and down the halls of our house, through the kitchen, step by step, asking the Lord to heal my right leg, if He be willing. If not, then I shall fight through my pain, asking Him for strength, and praising Him for all things, and for yet another chance in this life. Being away from my ministry in this condition, has created within me an urgent zeal to get back at it, that I may give all glory and honor and blessings to the Lord God Almighty for His plan for me. My time in the hospital was a time to witness to others the Lord Jesus and offer blessings in His most holy Name. How great is the Lord our God! Here is something I wrote during this time: At home, second day…all glory, praise, and thanksgiving to GOD, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit for giving me this second day at home with my dear and beloved and blessed wife for helping me, providing constant care in all phases of recovery, praying with me, being my cheerleader and love, helping me battle through this pain, while the Lord works His will. And thanks be to GOD for all the love and best wishes from family and friends all along the way, and my church, Elkton United Methodist Church. I know the Lord Jesus has received their prayers. Blessed be His holy name, now and forever. Amen. Other thoughts: There is only one GOD, there are no others! He is the GOD OF Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, revealed to us in the New Testament at the Baptism of Jesus, as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, the blessed and holy Trinity, the great and blessed holy mystery: three in One; One in Three. He is the true and living GOD of all eternity, of all history, of Light and Life, and truth. The Heavenly Father, who, with His only begotten Son, the Word, the Lamb of God, reigns over the universe and of all things, both visible and invisible, He created and sustains…He is immortal and eternal, He is beyond our comprehension…before anything was created before time began, before the heavens and earth, the sun and moon and stars, before the sea and land, grass, herbs and trees, there was only GOD…All glory, praise, worship, blessings and honor to You, O Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come, for heaven and earth declare your awesome glory, also your spoken word revealed and written that we might know You, Lord God Almighty, and know our past, and our future, and eternity with You, O Lord. Even so, come Lord Jesus. Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord, hosanna in the highest. My Lord and my God, Jesus Christ, the Messiah, who died for our sins that we might be forgiven, saved from the wrath of God to come, and inherit eternal life with Him. For we, His Saints shall return with Jesus from heaven as the whole earth shall see Him in His glorious power and might, the KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS…Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, the Son of God, the Son of Man…and Jesus, with us, shall reign on earth from Jerusalem for a thousand years; then comes the new heaven, the new earth, the New Jerusalem which comes down out of heaven, then eternity with GOD FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER… Amen and Amen.
