One of the things people never fail to comment about me: that I’m underweight and thin. Taking concern in every meal, with lots of observations and steps to make a proper meal size, I snuggled in for years. But I stayed at 49-50 kgs for many years. Nothing could help me gain weight – not even energy drinks, health drinks, big meals or many meals. I took comfort in a much-satisfying response, “Maybe it’s not in my genes”. Months later…
A man of God spoke to me about keeping away crippling anxiety that enters my body. I heeded to his advice. It was a huge challenge considering my circumstances. I resolved this hideous anxiety issue that sucks life out of me; this is it. I’m not taking in anymore. I set my mind on words of God. I heard these words given just for me.
13 As one whom his mother comforts,
So I will comfort you;
And you shall be comforted in Jerusalem.”
14 When you see this, your heart shall rejoice,
And your bones shall flourish like grass; – Isaiah 64:13, 14
In my case, a crushed spirit dries up the bones. Indeed, it led to auto-immune conditions. With faith now, I can see visible changes in my body and know that God is restoring my health, my bones, my skin and my gums. Truly, I received comfort from the Lord. I’m resting in his love. Anxiety is now outside the door. I can see it’s better out than in. His words came true. I received strength in my frame, my bones according to God’s word. I have gained 6 kgs haha. No extra meals or drinks. Comfort and restoration are great blessings from the Lord.
My bones are flourishing like grass. All praise, glory and honor to Lord Jesus Christ, my Saviour and Redeemer. His words shall never pass away.
