Disappointment Will Steal Your Healing

While I was praying for others, I started having problems of my own. My ear started hurting, and I had a noticeable amount of hearing loss. After a week and a half I decided to go to the doctor. After irrigating my ear, the doctor explained that there was a very good reason for my symptoms; I had a big hole in my eardrum. She explained that it could heal on its own, or it could need to be surgically corrected.

Since I already have hearing loss, I was devastated to learn that some of the hearing loss that I had experienced could be permanent. In much distress, I immediately came home and messaged my prayer buddy and she and her husband immediately starting praying.  In two days my pain left. I haven’t gained my hearing back; however, with faith and prayer anything is possible.

In my life, I have always felt that a smile would be the upmost important blessing that the Lord could give me. I have learned that a smile is just cosmetic and hearing is a necessity of life.  Sometimes we get so caught up in what people think about us and our appearance, we forget the small blessings that we take for granted daily.

 Don't worry about anything; instead pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Philippians 4:6 (NLT)
