God Uses Internet People

So often I am asked, "How do you know that you are operating in God's will?"

Normally, I need not look beyond the previous week for an example of His miraculous work in my life to answer the question.

This is the first article that I have published under Religion or Spirituality. Hopefully, it will not be my last. I feel that everything that I do ~ or write ~ is a reflection of the problem person that a glorious God has allowed me to become. Not that He gave me the problems; rather I latched on to them all as a result of my own reckless ways. He, however, knew me before I did, and has made provisions to deliver me from myself. To Him be the glory!

Could I have really solved such setbacks myself? The disabling Multiple Sclerosis, loss of prestige, my businesses, my home, my mangled marriages, even forced retirement, have each contributed to my understanding that God's ways are higher than man's ways, His thoughts higher than my thoughts. On an exceptional day, I am aware that He can speak thru me to someone like yourself, cause me to say what you need to hear. Maybe, this is our day?

I am willing. He is able. Now that I am unable to work in a conventional sense, I find I can do little but sit in front of a computer monitor, write articles, and interact via Internet with others. Frankly, I feel I am the recipient of much more than I ever give, in the way of good guidance and positive direction. Helpers materialize unexpectedly. Because of the boundless cyberspace, it is easy for an angel to tap one, who holds an answer to my dilemma, on the shoulder and whisper, "Write an e-mail to this guy." Do you think that our angels are in communication? I do.

This week, for example, after attempting for over three months to locate a physician who would write me a prescription for LDN (Low-Dose-Naltrexone), an inexpensive pharmacological I found on the Internet, which stops Multiple Sclerosis in its tracks, I gave it over to The Lord. My Neurologist and MD were unwilling to prescribe, my Internet query for Drs in my area who would write had come to no good end, and I knew my efforts were for naught.

"Lord," I said, "If you want me on LDN, you are going to have to make it happen. I give up. I'll know that it is Your will, and give You the recognition."

As always, when I quit attempting to do things my way, submit to His superior wisdom and miraculous methods, God is able to accomplish the seemingly impossible ~ in a matter of moments. An LDN user, who contacted me about reading my novel, provided me with the name and telephone number of such a physician, less than a mile from where I reside. I have talked to the good DR. by phone and will see him as soon as he can schedule me in. God is good!

In a future article, I will likely go off about traditional medicine's resistance to seeing sick patients get well, but this is not the time. It is a good time to reflect on what other problems I have been holding on to and determine to give those up too.
