I was reminded again and again how creative our God is and varied and how incredibly beautiful His earth is.
We gazed at this lovely rainbow from our lanai (balcony) for about an hour. To me a rainbow is always an emotional reminder to me of God reaching into our physical realm to show the reality of His invisible realm - how true His promises to us are.
This morning, I had an insight that answered a niggling question I have had in the back of my mind for years.
I wrote a post about an experience I had in July of 1998. You can find it here
While I have always believed in my heart that Dr. Koo was an angel, I have always entertained the question I had about why she was there for ME. The experience of course was enough ... but I still felt that there must have been a reason other than just giving me a 'special' experience.
This morning as we were having breakfast, I suddenly felt I had just been given the insight I had sought.
Over the years, I have continued to have those painful pericarditus attacks. I no longer rush to the hospital emergency... I just take my Toridol medication and ride out the attack.
Recently, I had a very severe attack that lasted hours longer than the attack normally lasts . I had already taken my daily dose of my regular anti-inflammatory meds and my rheumatologist has warned me not to take two different anti-inflammatories in one day.
So when I recognized the attack coming, I took my regular anti-inflammatory, but it did nothing to lesson the pain.
I know that my rheumatologist is somewhat hesitant to continue prescribing the Toridol for my attacks, but she trusts me not to abuse it and has always graciously continued to prescribe it.
Actually, there have been times I myself wondered if it was psychological on my part that I just believed that only the Toridol was able to control the pericarditus attacks.
I have no scientific reason for why only the Toridol anti-inflammatory med. is able to offer me relief... and it seems that medical science does not know the reason either, and therefore would never have thought to prescribe it for me/ Except for God supernaturally sending me that 'doctor angel' I may never have known about Toridol and I shudder to think of the suffering I would have had to endure over the years ... Many emergency trips to the hospital and administered morphine.
Does God provide all that we need ?? YES, indeed .. and if He needs to reach down supernaturally into our physical realm then He will do so !
How great is our God ??
I read something last week that resonated with me ...
"First God sends the solution, then He sends the problem."
Need we ever fear ?? no ... as Jesus said to Peter .. "Fear not, is it I!" If Jesus is with us, we are 'covered'!
God knows every detail of our lives and all that we could ever need ... and He will provide it "out of His great riches in glory!" How supernatural is that ??
