I believe that one of the ways to increase our faith is to watch for the miracles in our life. I also think it is one of the best ways to teach our children and grandchildren about faith. Their prayers and then the miracles that follow need to be pointed out to them so they realize there are no coincidences where miracles are concerned. Our Heavenly Father and Savior love us individually and are actively present in our lives.
The b/p medication I had been taking was a compound drug and the allergist looked at my chart over the internet and knew immediately I should stop taking that drug after all those years, as allergies can develop at anytime with one of the drugs in it. Another miracle, someone from several cities away could help me quickly, as each day the situation was worsening and my airway was in danger. The very next day after I stopped it I saw a huge improvement. Another miracle. Time was of the essence at that point.
Long story short the new medication was not working for me. When I went in my b/p had skyrocketed to dangerous levels. It is a miracle that I went in. Since I have had this new doctor I have been to the doctor more than I have been in years. She knew exactly what I needed and for two days I have been on some very strong meds. Guess what? Miracle!
Today I woke up and felt phenomenal for the first time in a long time. Sometimes you don't know how badly you were feeling until it is over. B/p is 128/78 this morning. My head is clear, my vision is crystal clear, headache is gone and swelling in my legs and feet is almost gone and I lost several pounds of water. Miracle!! This has not been a pleasant experience but it has nonetheless been a miracle. I have thought of many aspects of the silver lining in this cloud.
Who knows how long this has been brewing having taken this medication for over 20 years. The fact that this did not happen on our vacation...simply a miracle! I cannot tell you how thankful we are to have not had to look for help and hang out in a hotel for days.
The fact that it happened right now when we are home and not traveling was perfect. I am leaving in a few weeks to go to an important Conference I have been looking forward to for the entire year. By then I will feel confident that all is under control. Tender mercy and a miracle.
If we never had the trials how could we appreciate the absence of them? Our trials help us to know and to see that we are not alone, the Lord is by our side. We have tremendous support from Him, our families and our friends. That is a miracle worth noting and praising God for all the time.
I apologize for talking health issues (so like an old person) but I thought it was a good example of how the Lord works in our lives, in miracles in the big and small things all the time. Each and every single time something like this happens we need to sort it out and realize everyday miracles get us through this life one day at a time. If we think we are somehow in charge or that these things are a coincidence, we are only kidding ourselves and robbing ourselves of the great joy of our faith in a Father that loves us and cares for each of us.
