Yeah so it’s the message I put on the metal template of my new jewelry. Of course. It’s not just a trend for me. Faith in Jesus is critical to my survival these days!
I think I slept 2 hours, twice last night, awakened by demonic influences, seizure attacks, and a massive headache. Somewhere in the middle of these 2 episodes of sleep, I pushed myself out of bed to eat, drink, and read . . . my husband’s Popular Mechanics magazine, of course! Reading about the most innovative inventions of the past year is sport for a re-budding entrepreneur like me. I love creativity in virtually all of its forms. We all have creativity in us, I believe placed here by the Lord of all creation, the master Creator. And somewhere in the middle of reading about these inventions I developed a theory about my seizure attacks (formerly known on this blog as “seizure-like tics.”)
Here goes: if I have seizure attacks when falling asleep and perhaps in a unique stage of the sleep cycle then can the attacks be caused by disease in the sleep center of the brain? I have pulsing sensations behind my eyes at times, perhaps near the hypothalamus which is part of the brain’s sleep center. If this dysfunction is localized I wonder if it is possible to use my Rife, Beam Ray machine to target the frequencies of these particular tissues? Cautiously I may even consider medications or supplements (although I have already tried several of each!). My brain MRI was normal so there’s no structural issue. Hmmmmm. Looking forward to my next appointment with my Lyme Literate Doctor; we have so much to discuss!
The Lord gave me and you the ability to create. The Lord gave me and you the ability to use our minds to solve problems, reason, remember, learn, and experience emotions. These are called executive functioning skills. We are unique from all animals and plants in this regard and with these gifts comes stewardship. I will only ask the question for myself: am I using what I have, where I am, with what abilities I’ve got? Better said is as follows:
1 Peter 4:10-11
New King James Version (NKJV)
10 As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. 11 If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.
So I create. I try to figure this Lyme stuff out. I also wait on Him for answers, inspiration, healing, grace, mercy, everything. In the middle of the night, when I can do nothing because of the wretchedness of Lyme Disease, I simply say the name, “Jesus.” In the end, faith in Jesus is critical.
Thank you Lord for increasing my faith. Thank you Lord for meeting me in the middle of the night last night. Thank you for the comfort and faith I can feel in the arms of my Steve. I humbly submit to your will and purpose. And if something good comes from this wretchedness, may You alone receive the glory. In Christ’s name, Amen.
