My dear reader, hello! I have glimpses of the magical things when I look. Almost two weeks ago the labs came back showing I’m depleted of: dopamine, serotonin, epinephrin, norepinephrine, glutamate, and cortisol.
Then more labs came back that I have iron deficiency anemia again.
little by little
I am finding the magical.
Day by day I pour over the word of God in the Bible. Day by day I take the supplements my doctor gave me for adrenal dysfunction and neurotransmitter support. Later this week I will get the first of 6 iron infusions to resolve my anemia.
Oh did I mention I have bleeding stomach ulcers to boot?
I tell you all of this not to discourage you but to ENCOURAGE you because through all of this God is my provision.
Have you looked at Instagram or a photographers’ beautiful work & caught yourself thinking it was magical? You see something so lovely and seemingly unattainable.
Goodness knows that in the past months with how awful I’ve felt at times these images proved unbearable. When you see those lovely things your brain releases dopamine and you feel just a little touch of bliss. However fleeting you do.
For a while I just didn’t. Even now with my labs as they are it seems impossible that I could.
But today I did.
It snowed buckets for our part of the globe. I peered out across our backyard and noticed our frozen hummingbird feeder topped with a lovely whip of snow.
Huzzah! The magical is here. Right before my eyes. I saw it. Truly I had that happy moment where I knew God is healing me because that little moment came over me like a warm lovely wave.
Perhaps you haven’t walked a mile in my shoes. Perhaps you have. Either way, we can all relate to that surreal blog post somewhere with perfect photographs in idillic lighting. We just need to slow down and see.
Look at the little things in your part of the world; your little plot of land you call home.
He’s there if you look.
Romans 1:20, “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities- his eternal power and divine nature- have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.”
Truly it is as the Bible says. You are our provision and all-in-all. Praise be to your glorious name. I trust you Lord and praise you for the healing you have done and the healing you are going to do. You are wonderfully faithful, positively perfect and the everlasting hope for all mankind. Thank you for helping me to experience you by the magical things you put within my reach.
