Later this week, I will have my annual physical. I went in for the blood test last Friday. Not sure how my blood test went because I did not study for it. lol
I have been in the midst of a flare up for a few weeks, but did not seek treatment because some treatments can cause the blood tests to return negative.
Yesterday was a bit rough. I took two power naps but did manage to teach my two classes online. But that is life with chronic illness.
BUT- The whole day I felt the presence of Jesus. The whole day I felt a song in my spirit. It reminded me of Zephaniah 3 in the bible:
“The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.”
Have you experience that? The Lord singing over you? It can be a worship song in your spirit that just stays with you. Did you know that Jesus takes delight in you? Let that sink in for a moment. Jesus takes delight in you and sings over you.
I have experienced that during flare ups with chronic illness. I have experienced it during difficult times. At times it is what keeps me going.
Thank you for reading. God Bless.

Thanks, Matt, for reminding us that Jesus delights in us and sings over us.
Through him we are more than conquerors.
Praying for you, as I regularly do. 🤗🌷
Thank you for praying 🤗
Ditto here with Sally!
Thank you little sister 🙂
☺️ Did you pass your test, big brother?
I will find out Friday 🙂
One day to go before the results 🙏🏽
I don’t want to go
Lol, do you have a choice?
I could cancel the appointment and since they have the results I can get my prescriptions refilled for a year
Hmm, you could but would you? 😉
Well…… it is possible that I may have done it before
I love that verse! It spike so big when my daughter was sick in the hospital a few years ago.
So thankful you’re feeling His peace and presence in the midst of the flare up❤️
Thank you little sister. How is your daughter now?
Great now! She had a ruptured appendix at the time so they removed it and hospitalized her but she spent a few extra days there because her body wasn’t fighting the infection effectively.
Glad she is good now 🙂
May God deliver you from the side effects of this most recent flare. I bet you got an A+ on your blood test.
Sorry to hear you haven’t been feeling good.
Really good thought.
I know the feeling….the presence of God in the midst of it all….its beautiful….
Praying for you right now dear brother….
Thank you little sister 🐼🤗😇🐼❤️😇😀
Yes, Jesus has sung over me, it is beautiful, and His timing is perfect. What a blessing! I will say prayers of healing for you and prayers of wisdom and guidance for your Dr.
Thank you for praying 🤗
This is encouraging. I too have been suffering Celiac/Cachexia episodes again. Praying for you sir.
I had a hard time concentrating on the rest of your post because of your joke! Lol… That was funny. My type of humor. 😆 But, yes, love those moments when you can feel Jesus singing over you. ☺
It’s amazing that He rejoices over us with singing! That is a wonderful truth. 🤗
Yes it is. Jesus loves you little sister 🤗❤️🤗
I have certainly had occasions when the Lord sang over me, I think He does it best when I slow down enough to listen. Hope you feel better and that everything is ok with your blood work
Thank you 🙂
Slowing down helps me to hear his voice
Sorry to hear you haven’t been well. Praying for you.
I had to laugh at your blood test humour .😊
I must admit I can’t imagine the Lord rejoicing over me with singing.
Thank you little sister. The Lord does sing over you. 🙂
This is great. Love the emphasis on God “singing over us”.
He also prays over us too. We indeed have a great friend in Him.
Hope you are a lot better big bro?. 🤗
Matt, I am praying for you and from experience understand chronic illness and chronic pain. Praise God for His grace and mercy giving us strength to continue on our spiritual journey giving Him all the praise and glory. Have an amazing Lord’s Day and remain safe in the arms of Jesus.
Thank you little sister 😇😇😇
