What I've Learned From Losing My Voice (besides the fact that others like it)

Last night, I arrived home to find out that my voice is gone.  Yep, no voice (no cheers from the peanut gallery, please).  Today, I am still without much of a voice (even the dog has recognized it and no longer listens to me when I get after him because I cannot raise my voice).  It's interesting because last night was the first healing and wholeness service at Lambertville UMC and tonight is the healing and wholeness service at Emmanuel in Blissfield.  While I am convinced that God does not will us to be sick, I do believe that he can work despite our ailments.  With that said, do I believe this is a spiritual attack?  It very well could be, because I know the demons hate it when God's people pray, especially for healing and we are certainly in a spiritual battle (Ephesians 6:12).  It may also be due to the severe allergies that I have been dealing with over the past several months, or even a combination of the two.  Either way, I am praying for God's total healing to take place, for it is God and God alone who provides healing, sometimes through medicine, sometimes miraculously (even the miracle of modern medicine), and sometimes in totally different ways than we might expect.  Therefore, I am trusting in God's presence, that I will experience healing from him, no matter what form it may take.

As a matter of fact, I have been learning to be more contemplative in my "silent" time (for someone with ADD, this is very challenging indeed!).  I have taken more time out to reflect and to pray, and even... listen.  It is my sincere belief that God is working despite my current situation.  Praise be to God!
