Oneta 84

          Once the hernia crises had passed and I was no longer “laying in wait” for my Jesus Healer, I felt more at ease and probably became open for the “fiery darts” from the devil.

         I made an appointment with the cardiologist to deal with the heart issue but on appointment day their office was closed because of flooding.  I didn’t make another appointment.  I recognized that the Lord had kept me through heart problems up to then, so why bother.  (Reference incident recorded in More Healings)  It was amazing that with my family’s history of heart attacks and my history of being overweight, I didn’t even have high blood pressure!   So I relaxed and I didn’t pray about it much either.

         So I went to sleep in Zion (a bit of Christianize speech meaning I pretty much quite praying about it because it didn’t hurt).  One does not have to be long in that condition before spiritual issues began to develop.  Questions.  Oh, God, did I let you down?  Oh, Lord, will I ever have such bonding with you as I had when I hurt and you were my only refuge?   Oh, Lord, was I wrong, did I misread you?  Should I have toughed it out a few more days?

          God was patient and faithful in amazing ways even in my storm.  The scripture about “his completing the work he had started with me” was my foundation.  In June of that year (four months after the surgery) I had another health issue – I’m not going into the details, too embarrassing (clue, hemorrhoids).  Never an issue before.  Sunday morning pray time, I was standing praying my myself.  I was instantly healed.  It was just as if he said to me, “I am still your healer.”  (Oh, God, you are so surprisingly wonderful! I cry with joy while writing this six years later.)  Yes, He was still my healer!  Another thing, I was pleased that it was a healing I didn’t even want to talk about because of the subject.  I told my sister; I don’t remember telling anybody else.  That felt good – another secret with Jesus.  (Who ever stood up in a testimony service and said, “Praise God, he healed my hemorrhoids?  :D)

          So now I’ve told the whole world.  Only because I am convinced that it is a story that God wants known by someone out there.  I say “Don’t think you ever get out of the shelter of his love!  It might take a while for him to keep you on the potter’s wheel (more Christianize), but he is making something beautiful out of you!”

          But I was still on the potter’s wheel!

More to come later.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    Oh man, your healer took care of the pain in the rear so that you don’t become one (to others). PTL😉

    Like the Master’s Hand that takes the old violin and creates music so beautiful that the angels weep for the joy of it. Such are we on the Potter’s wheel! Great write!

  3. Ok, I need to really focus and do better — I’ve pleaded many a pain-filled night over…. hemorrhoids

    • oneta hayes says:

      Julie, I’m going to ask the Healer for a healing such that it can never be denied! Just think six years from now you might be crying with joy over the memory. And the joy of having God drop such a bundle of blessings on you. Let it be so, Lord.

      • Might want to throw lupus in that asking…😬

        • oneta hayes says:

          No harm in asking. One scripture says we have not because we do not ask. There is such a thing as asking “amiss” because of various things but I’ll ask with/for you.

          • Thanks Oneta— long story but latest bloodwork was questionable in several major areas— so she’s sending me to the rheumatologist— but can’t get seen til oct!
            But lupus would answers years of issues

            • oneta hayes says:

              A good time to commit the outcome to the Lord, for one thing you are facing some important medical decisions. He will be your Peace and your Guide (Decision Maker).

              • The odd thing is that I want her to finally say this is what all of this has been over all of these years…a name—I can batle a name better than random willy nilly symptoms.

              • oneta hayes says:

                Julie, I wrote a rather long comment then made an error. I ended up with a few letters that make no sense. “undeJ” Sorry. Don’t know what happened. Anyway I understand about you wanting a diagnosis that stays firm. You feel like you can cope with one thing then find it changes on you – then you get all wobbley again. I know it is a right prayer to ask God to give you a scripture to stand on. Or maybe you all ready have one. You have read the ones that helped me at various times. Some people might have more than one or even several, but one is good if it rings true for you. Get rest. God is watching. ♥♥

    Thank you Oneta for writing this blog entry. It really is a great encouragement to all of us as we continue on this Potters Wheel of on going life and He makes us ready for His Kingdom Purposes.
    Peace with pain is always the biggest testing time. Blessings. F.

    • oneta hayes says:

      “Peace with pain is always the biggest testing time.” So true. As Jesus did, one has to come to “not my will, but thine be done.” That flies in the face of much modern kinds of preaching by those who do not think suffering is ever the will of God. Thanks, Faye. Pray with me for Julie as above.

    He does have the “whole world in His hands” doesn’t He?? Hugs to you for proclaiming His mighty deeds! May others respond with an open heart to His healing hand….

    • oneta hayes says:

      Dawn, thank you. I see you took a browse in my blog today and left me some likes. That is very nice of you. I’ve been gone today so I won’t get much blogging done. But I join you in praise to and thanks for our wonderful Lord.
