Hardship and Blessings

A stethoscope on the top of the EKG chart

Since I last Posted I have had a few ups and downs that I would like to share about with you, it is True that regardless of what hardship we experience in life, God always seeks to reassure us that we are not alone, that He is with us and sometimes in amazing and unexpected ways.

Isaiah 43:1-3 – Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.”

Last Friday I had the Electrocardiographic Examination at Prince Charles Hospital, as it turned out, I had mixed up the dates and thought it was at the end of the month but that is when I see the Specialist for the results of this Procedure, thankfully Ron knew when it was, which meant I was able to keep the appointment but this proved to be rather unsettling.

Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men.

The Procedure which was very painful was more than I could endure, I was sobbing and so the woman who was performing it had to stop, this has never happened before and I have had this test done many times over the years. Than later during the weekend and early this week, I was getting pains in my chest again so I went to my Doctor and he did another ECG just to be on the safe side and the results were good which reassured me after the Procedure on Friday and it was  amazing too because of the results of the other three ECG that were done when I was in Hospital recently, which I shared with you about previously. My Doctor said that the pain was from inner bruising from the Procedure and would disappear and yes Thankfully it has lessened considerately now.

Mobility Scooter 1

The good news which shows God works all things for good in our lives, was that during  the previous week as I was putting pamphlets about the coming Healing Seminar at the Church in letter boxes, I noticed one of my wheels on my Mobility Scooter was flat, I went to the nearest Garage but since I had never put air in my tyres before I asked a man who was near by to help me, which he did, I thanked him and gave him a pamphlet which lead to my sharing about God healing me over the years and when I told him about my Skin Cancer disappearing before my Skin Specialist could operate, he said he also went to the same Specialist but than said he had died some years ago after being ill  and as shown later, he must have been dying when I saw him.

Although Thankful that God chose to Miraculously heal me of the Skin Cancer under my lip, I had wondered why He had for years, it could have been cured by an Operation and this is one of His tools too, we remember He is the only Healer, all good things come from Him regardless of what tools He uses. Most of the other times He had healed me Miraculously it seems it was because my condition was life threatening or very life limiting but not so with the Skin Cancer although I may have needed cosmetic Surgery after as I was told it was extensive.

Amazingly when I went in for the Day surgery I found the Cancer had disappeared on the way there, which really surprised both the Doctor and myself  but Thankfully it gave me the opportunity to witness to him about the other times God had Miraculously healed me and how I had come from being an Atheist for almost 30 years to being a Christian, his final remark to me was; ” We’ll see if the Cancer comes back,” which a few Doctors have also said to me about my other unexplained healings.

Heart-Stethoscope 1God could have used the Operation to heal me but He brought good from bad, the seeds were planted in this Doctor’s heart of God’s undeniable reality before he died. We may never know when we are planting good seeds that will bear good fruit for Eternity but we Pray when we share with others about our God of Love and His awesome workings which we can see in and all around us, that it will touch their hearts and they too will become our Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus.

Ephesians 2:10 For we are His Workmanship created in Christ Jesus unto good works which God hath before Ordained that we should walk in them.

Christian Love Always in our Unity with our Lord and Saviour, our KING of Kings and LORD of Lords – Anne.

P.S Did you know there is  “You” in Saviour ?

  4. You and Ron are in my prayers!


  5. If we only stop and count all the miracles that God work in our daily life! In small things and big things he is always there!


    • Very True Caleb but I don’t think we can even imagine just how many times God intervenes and helps us or protects us from danger and Satan’s attacks but we know for sure He does because He tells us He does and He does not lie, His words in Scripture are 100% True they are not a Fairy Story, they are based on reality but without His wisdom and empowering both of which we ask for and receive, we will not understand them.

      Blessings – Anne.

    Anne… Isaiah 43 is the theme verse for your life! You have experienced those deep waters, great trouble, rivers of difficulty, and fire of oppression. Each time, God has grabbed a hold of you and taken you through them. What a beautiful testimony that strengthens your faith and the faith of the rest of us!

    Praying that God gives you a “quiet and boring” season with no flat tires, medical tests, or hospital visits! 🙂 Thanks for sharing God’s answers to prayers!


  7. Anne, Your scooter and you have seen many miracles of God in action! Diane

    I love the way God likes to keep us surprised. Though we can always expect his goodness its those unexpected miracles that bring big attention to him in a more noticeable way, especially for those who still do not know him yet . When I had my eye issues, I had a doctor who did not believe in God, after the 4th time I healed unexpectedly without her help she told her nurses to put away the injection she had planned to put in my eye that day and then said “the power of prayer works!” I loved that she had finally admitted to something to do with God. Though she has never admitted yet to actually believing in God, I feel like at least now the seeds are planted. She is a wonderful lady, and I don’t like seeing her missing out on the life she could have if she had Jesus in her life, and I worry for her should she happen to die before realizing he is real and accepting him. Good Post Anne, I am glad your feeling better and looking towards the good even through what I am sure was a really hard time.


    • Very True T, Miracles do bring big attention to God, even Jesus said; look at the Miracles and see His Fathers reality. Carnal man can’t explain them away and it is why even some Christians deny them, they want to put everything in their box of human understanding, logic and reasoning but God won’t be put in there, He is indeed God of the impossible.

      Thank you so much for sharing about your Doctor, how wonderful that she acknowledged that there was a God even if perhaps it is one of her own understanding but that can change if it hasn’t already now that her heart is open.

      When the Sciatica Arthritis disappeared from my Spine, which meant I would no longer be in danger of being a Paraplegic which I was told I would when I was 40 be by the time I was 60, I asked my New Age thinking Doctor how it had happened after she told me the results of the tests, she said very flustered ; “How can I explain anything that happens to you!” that was the only answer she gave but the seeds have been planted…Yes very much so we have a God of the impossible and He will indeed make it known.

      Christian Love Always – Anne.

    Yes Anne we have a wonderful God who loves to surprise His children, He is the God of surprises. To touch lives as only He can and we then respond to live our lives to bring honour to Him, you have been a recipient of His love.



    • Yes so True Love, I have been greatly Blessed but so is everyone in Christ Jesus, even those who put God in a box of their own understanding and claim He doesn’t do Miracles today, how very shortsighted is their vision. God is a God of the impossible, I don’t think we can even imagine how many times He intervenes in our lives to save us from danger or suffering and all because He Loves us greatly.

      Christian Love Always – Anne.
