God Speaks Into Our Personal Story

I have been blessed with remarkable physical health. I am aware of this when I am asked to fill out a health history and am able to answer “no” to all of the categories. Now for the first time in my life, I have developed something that may be chronic. It is a weak, painful and sometimes tingling right arm. This is caused, I am told, by a herniated disk in my neck. I have tried an array of treatments but I can’t really say that I am sure my arm is on the mend.

Growing up on a farm without brothers has given me the impression that I am strong. I have never needed to ask for help to open a jar or pound a nail. But, now I am daily aware that my right arm is weak.

This is why Psalm 138:7  (Amp) is speaking so personally to me. “Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch forth Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and Your right hand will save me.”

Today I am depending on God’s right arm and not my own.

Maybe this means I am in better health. What are your thoughts?
