Last Friday, was such breezy day at work. Yet in a short space of time trying get ready to host my business and working sisterhood meeting I injured my right knee not knowing the cause except an acute sharp stabbing pain on my right knee. I literally could not walk for half a minute. Did not know what hit me. I never experience such pain before. Thank God, the pain subsided less than a minute. I am so grateful as I began to inch gingerly towards my car. My right knee seemed to behave relatively well by the time I reached the venue.
By the time the meeting ended, walking out to the car was another crazy sharp pain on my right knee. I had to stop till the pain died off then continue to move slowly to my friend’s car to get me home. I felt ok till I got out of the car and walked a short distance before I felt another gripe on my same knee. I was irritated by this issue. Long story short, I had my knee x-ray done. Praise Him, nothing broken, no damage done. My guess is I pinch a nerve doing workout at the gym continuously for three nights. I used knee guard and heat pad for my knee for the night.
The next day, I felt better so I ran a few errands here and there. I was in a shop and out of nowhere, a shop assistant lost her balance and one of her foot with Dr Martens boot landed on my left ankle. I was pretty much in agony for more than ten minutes. I know it was an accident and she apologised profusely for a few times. I forgive her now but at moment I could not. Shortly after that both my ankles and right knee were sore as my body tried to compensate. What a “brilliant” weekend! I whinged to myself. Got home and determine to ignore most eyesore house chore that were staring at my face as I was in no condition to do much.
Sunday, I woke up feeling like an eighty years old woman with ache all over my body. It was a nightmare to get out of bed. Well, I guess going to church was out of the question, the only church I could attend was my home church. So I listened to good music, sing praise and claim healing over my body. I did the force rest, R&R (rest and relaxation for most people for me is rest and restoration).
Below are some of His promises I declared.
But now take another look. I’m going to give this city a thorough renovation, working a true healing inside and out. I’m going to show them life whole, life brimming with blessings. I’ll restore everything that was lost to Judah and Jerusalem. I’ll build everything back as good as new. I’ll scrub them clean from the dirt they’ve done against me. I’ll forgive everything they’ve done wrong, forgive all their rebellions. And Jerusalem will be a center of joy and praise and glory for all the countries on earth. They’ll get reports on all the good I’m doing for her. They’ll be in awe of the blessings I am pouring on her. – Jeremiah33:6-9
But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,’ declares the Lord, ‘because you are called an outcast, Zion for whom no one cares.’ -Jeremiah30:17
for they are life to those who find them and health to one’s whole body -Proverbs4:22
for I am the Lord, who heals you. -Exodus15:26
And the Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy you with all good things, and keep you healthy too; and you will be like a well-watered garden, like an ever-flowing spring. -Isaiah58:11
And by His stripes we are healed. -Isaiah53:5
Today is a brand new day! I woke up feeling wonderful. My body rejoice like a twenty years old again. I am convinced that I am back to normal. I can exercise, wriggle, jump and dance again. This is my amazing miracle! Praise Jesus! A true blue Aussie’s voice came out of me, “I am as happy as a little Vegemite!”
