Our Awesome God

Dec 16th 2010 at 12:48 PM

This is difficult to share, but God is in charge so here goes.
My husband and I have some disagreements like all couples. Sometimes his emotional communication is stronger than I. I've been having some episodes they thought were mini-strokes. It turns out that these episodes were stress reactions to his emotional and verbal communication.
Here is the God part.
The ER staff called neurology to consult. The first doctor came in, examined me and told me the results of all the physical tests were negative. Next he asked if I was having any extra stress in my life. What an opening. I told him I was concerned for my husband's health.
When he left, my husband and I talked more openly then we have ever talked.
Next, a staff neurologist came in. He examined me. He made the same suggestion regarding stress as the (cause) of my episode.
Again, my husband and I were able to talk more openly then ever.
Our God is an awesome God.

I am sorry about your stress and the relationship problems as well. It is amazing how the Lord made our bodies so they react to our Spirit. It is even more amazing how He, in His Infinite Love and Wisdom, gives us a choice as to how we "see" situations in our lives. You could have just as easily looked at it as a reason to be more angry with your husband which would only cause more problems. You could have viewed it in a myriad negative ways, but chose one, the One. You saw not a door closed by God, but rather one that had been opened by Him. Bless you, and may you stay healthy and keep on telling the Good News! >> Shalom [+]
