Daily Struggle With Walking By Faith

Things come against or into our lives daily that cause us to wonder where is God. One of the troublesome area is with our health. I was told in April by a heart doctor that a valve in my heart was leaking so bad I need to have something done immediately. He sent me to a specialist valve doctor. There were about six weeks wait since the paperwork got messed up. During that time, I started climbing stairs each day to strengthen my heart since it is a muscle. I worked up to 600 steps a day before I saw the specialist. My heart had improved to where the specialist heart doctor told me that it was too risky to do two of the heart tests that were scheduled and that I should just go home and come back next year. My heart had improved that much in about a month of climbing stairs and watching my eating that the tests were more dangerous than the condition of my heart. He told me to go home and come back next year! Thank you Lord Jesus! Well in the glee, a few days later I was still taking light doses of blood pressure meds and mixed them with a few vitamins pills from health food center. Evidently, the combination had some side effects of vertigo and when I was in a hurry one Sat morning, I took them all at the same time. OOPS! About an hour later I was vomiting and my stomach was burning me up. I went to ER and the calmed it down but I could barely walk. I was like a drunk without having drank anything. For a couple days I bounced down the halls in my house from side to side. I continued to work out, added some balance exercises and have reduced the effects from about a 10 down to about a 1, still working on them. I have lost about 12 lbs, blood pressure down the 120s or low 130s.
My problem. I know all sicknesses are from the devil. Look in Deut 28, there are no sicknesses on the Blessing side, all sicknesses are on the curses side. We are supposed to have a shield of faith in Ephesians 6:16 to shield us from ALL the fiery darts of the devil. Therefore, I must have some or a big hole in my shield. How do we get holes in our shield?? In 2 Corinthians 2:10-11 the Scripture states that if we fail to forgive others we will be giving satan advantage in our lives. Also, the Lord’s Prayer in Matthew 6:12, “And forgive us our debts, AS we forgive out debtors.” First Peter 3:7 says husbands to treat wives as joint heirs of the grace of life that your prayers be not hindered. Many problems we face are due to our failing to obey Scriptures. Pray for me, I’ll pray for you.
