As Good As...Almost New

First of all, I wanna thank those who commented on my recent devotion concerning being a little upset at God. Your comments were very thought-provoking and really helped me deep down. So again, thank-you very much.

Today I had some medical trouble that landed me in the E.R. When I got there, I was praying like crazy, asking God to take away the pain and discomfort I was feeling. Due to the pain, needless to say my blood pressure was through the roof. It is amazing what the Good Lord and a doctor can do. I am back home now and feeling 100% better. I am having a slight case of insomnia, but I think that is more because I wanted to write this devotion. I got to thinking how we can have moments of extreme pain, and then with some help, can have moments of total relief. That's what I experienced today physically. But we also have those same episodes spiritually. Yesterday, I was questioning God why such mean people can hurt the innocent, and in turn, hurt us. But then today I can pray to God for relief, and He can give it to me in such a short time. Yesterday, I was "upset" at God. But today, I didn't hesitate to ask him to cure my physical pain. So I wanted to give God some praise for helping me today physically and spiritually. I have learned that it is OK to be upset with Him sometimes. He still loves us enough to make all our hurts and fears go away. Thank-you, Lord for helping me learn another level of your incredible Grace. You are my Lord; Please use me however You want.


  1. Good Morning and well said. God is always good. He is the love that reigns in our lives forever and ever… even before anyone else knew of our existence. He whispers His love upon us… and in us. May we always continue to seek His face.

    Have a blessed day!

  2. God is good, all the time. You've said it yourself, and so have many others ... and most of us, whether we admit it or not, have experienced it. God is good to us. Whether we "deserve" it or not. God's reasoning does not always line up with ours, and we are not always going to understand. I don't think He minds if we question ... as long as we believe. He wants us to look away from our answers and look to Him (who has all the answers). Just as we don't know why things happen the way they do, maybe it will always be a little bit amazing (to me, anyway) just how very powerful God is and can be. Ask and ye shall receive ... and that's just what happened for you.

    You were in pain, you were hurting ... you asked God, and you believed. And what happened? Like you mentioned, it doesn't always have to be a physical pain ... God is the almighty healer and he can relieve ALL pain. I'm glad he healed your physical pain, and I'm sorry that my friend had to suffer. Praying for God's healing hand to remain upon you ... and for you to keep the devotions coming :)

    Blessings and love
