Well, this has been an eventful past two weeks. Nearly my entire family contracted some form of covid, we didn’t gather, we live miles apart, our family is a mixture of vaccinated and unvaccinated.
Grateful to report, all are doing well and on road to recovery. I think the worst part for me was, I had it in Jan. 2020, it debilitated me for four months. Recently on Jan. 10, 2022, I tested positive. This time it took from Jan. 8th till this week. Not sure how I got it. The duration was shorter, and I did get bronchitis, which my doctor treated with an inhaler and prednisone. I took Ciacordian for cough and congestion over Mucinex as it made my backache. I ran a low-grade fever with Tylenol for five days. I applaud my doctor, he was awesome and available 24/7 by portal or phone while I was sick!
We all treated ourselves differently, myself, I had half my desk covered, like a medical table. I raised my bed, slept on my right side. I continued my low-sugar diabetic eating plan, drinking green tea, water, and coffee with raw honey. My appetite stayed normal. Being diabetic, I was warned my sugar level would spike high to monitor several times a day especially being on the steroid. Surprisingly, my blood sugar dropped, unexplainably! This whole last year I have fought hard to lower my sugar level with a nutritionist, doctor, exercise, and supplements, I never went below 140 fastings. However, while fighting covid, my sugar level dropped to 98 and stayed consistent. I am just amazed. That is God! I praise him and thank him.
Medical devices it pays to have on hand, help reporting vitals to your doctor:
O2 sensor, touchless thermometer, blood pressure cuff
Here is my list:
Aspirin- to avoid clots
Cordiciadian – cough and cogestion
Tylenol Arthritis Strenght – (2) every 12 hours
Inhaler- 2 puffs every four to six hours
Prednisone- (1) 20 per day
Vitamin d3 10,000 iu daily with tums for calcium
Airborn vitamin C packs
Vinegar steam helped the congestion- (I) cup apple cider vinegar to small pot filled with water, bring to boil breath in….helped me alot.
The last two days I started to suddenly feel normal, like myself again. It took me some time to realize, my depression was in hiding, along with my anxiety. That is God! I praise and thank him.
I specifically thank the prayer warriors who lifted me and my family before God, as I feel your prayers and mine were answered. Praising God! I give him all the glory! It is a priceless gift to have those who will pray for you when in a crisis. Never be afraid to ask for prayer, you don’t have to give details, the reason can remain private. Just saying “I need prayer is enough!”
I feel amazingly clear and focused. I have been tweaking my apartment for the last two days, cleaning and sterilizing after being sick, and I began to feel a creative flow. I painted two projects, repurposed a table into an end table, completed my interior design plan on my kitchen, planning my next thrift store run. I make stuff and I am thrifty and I had an idea, that I needed to use or find a function for what I owned or release it to goodwill. My biggest excitement is that I was able to take two twin mattresses in my spare room and add them to my full-size bed turning it into a queen bed. Now there is room for the grandbabies, they always sleep with grammy, and we got more room.
My daughter kept a close eye on me, dropped off groceries, and I cooked this new recipe which is a sheet pan chicken dish. It is made with vinegar and apricots! Delicious, beyond good. Today I caught myself singing and dancing in the kitchen, I was thanking God, grateful and thankful for all he is doing and will continue to do.
Through this all, God is my anchor! I trust him! He deserves all my praise! My family and I are fortunate, and I am grateful for our recovery.
I read through Romans, and it reminded me of a post I wrote a long time ago, which I am looking for, I hope to find, edit and post by Sunday! Lord willing!
Hope everyone enjoyed the snow! We were covered in Ice, it was pretty, and gone as of today!
Have a Great Week!
Prayer for Healing
My father let those who are sick come to you, heal their bodies with no lasting effects, woo the lost, the brokenhearted, the despondent, bind up their wounds, and release extraordinary joy. I have heard it said that you love us all, good, and bad, you walk among us and save those who are crushed in spirit. I pray for salvation for all humans, for protection over our families, friends, and strangers, these individuals that I lift to you believing you will not forsake us. I pray “Psalms 91” pleading your blood over them. I stand humbly before you God and ask you to open their ears, their minds, and their eyes. I see them as future saints adorned in crowns of beauty, gladness, and garments of praise. Lord, I know your truth is for every man, woman, and child. I pray for warrior angels commanded by you Lord, to set a hedge of protection around them, to guard them, so that when your vessels of saints come in contact with them and speak your truth and salvation, the light in your vessels will not be your saints they see, it will be you, their Redeemer, their Savior, JESUS, whose words will turn the lost to being found and the despondent to having hope, and the hopeless to be full of joy. All to be planted in the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ with the assurance of salvation. Save them, God, our doors are open, and we welcome them into your house. We humbly come before you praising you and all your creation! There is nothing going on under the sun and moon that you don’t already know about! Lord, we ask that the schemes of the enemy be brought out of darkness into the light exposed and destroyed by you! Father, we pray you to eradicate, cancel and void Covid 19, Cancer, Aids, man-made virus, diseases, and afflictions! Father, we declare healing to our nation for by your stripes we are healed! We take authority pleading the blood of Jesus, believing for protection over our children, grandchildren, all our families, and friends. We ask in Jesus’ name that you surround us with the pure white light of Christ’s love, protecting each and everyone spiritually, physically, mentally, and emotionally. We pray a strong hedge of protection around our nation believing and having faith God’s protection is there. Standing firm in the faith, that Jesus Christ is with us, knows our need for healing, delivering, and providing us from the smallest to the greatest of our details. We bind up the enemy, in all areas, all attacks, all schemes, all devices, canceling them and declaring them void in the authority and name of Jesus Christ! Thank you Lord that you FIGHT for us and make a way, that we are the head and not the tail, We are above only and not beneath, We are complete in Him Who is the Head of all principality and power, We are alive with Christ, We are free from the law of sin and death, We are far from oppression and fear does not come near us. We are born of God and the evil one does not touch us! We are redeemed from the curse of sin, sickness, and poverty, We are healed by the stripes of Jesus, For God has not given us a spirit of fear; but of power, love, and a sound mind! We are greatly loved by God! We are submitted to God and the devil must flee from us because we resist him in the Name of Jesus! We are firmly rooted, built up, established in our faith, and overflowing with gratitude in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen!
