He is the Way-Maker – He is the Great Physician – Part 3

by BJ Robinson

As I lay in that hospital, I knew I couldn’t help myself and no one else could either. No doctor at the hospital was going to help me. Only God could help. The doctor there blamed their not being able to help me on my cardiologist not referring me a year ago. I had to be placed on medicine first to see if it would help. God says he’ll make a way when none seems possible. I prayed that the pacemaker and medicine would be my way, and I wouldn’t have to have a heart transplant or heart pump. I hope and pray that God will provide that way when no other seems possible and continue to do so.

I left that hospital, as I will refer to it, in July. This is January as I write, and God has allowed me to live to see another new year. He has blessed me in so many ways despite my trials and tribulation. My cardiologist says my medicine is working and helping me. For that, I am so grateful.

Before I went to the hospital that drained the fluid from me, I could do nothing inside or outside of my house. I couldn’t even grocery shop. I felt so bad Christmas of 2017 when people sent me cards, but I was not able to shop for any in return. Everyone kept telling me to take it easy, not to do anything.

I could do nothing but sit on the couch and watch television, read the Bible, or a novel, and pray. My husband ordered food delivery for me, but he had to do it when he would be there to get it inside, since I got to the point I could no longer retrieve it from the porch. He literally had to wait on me hand-and-foot for a few months. Thank God he’d blessed me with a husband who tried his best to make my life easier. I couldn’t walk for months.

Once the fluid was removed, things changed dramatically. I slowly began to do things for myself again and grew a little stronger each day. I was finally able to walk all over my house again instead of using the mobility scooter. Since I left that hospital in July, I have not used it inside again.

I began to wash, dry, and fold clothes again and to cook. I could dust, clean my kitchen cabinets, make up my bed, wash dishes, and bake. While I could do nothing, but watch television and read, I became hooked on those “fix it” or renovation shows on TV.

I do not know how long I will be able to keep going with my heart pumping only twenty percent, but what that last hospital must not have known and wouldn’t listen to me when I tried to tell them, was all my heart had pumped for over a year was 20 percent. I have faith bigger than a mustard seed, and I prayed for God to give me a way out even when there seemed to be no way. Indeed, according to the last hospital, there was no way, but thanks to God and my medicine, (I prayed that the medicine would be my way out, especially when I saw that the hospital had given up on me.) I am still going. I thank God every single day. He made a way for me when there seemed to be none. I don’t know how long God will decide to keep my heart pumping at only twenty percent, but I do know He’s the one in control, and I trust Him more than any doctor or nurse. He is my great physician and savior, and I love Him with all of my heart. He didn’t give up on me when man did. When not one doctor or nurse offered hope, God did, and He made a way for me to come home and see my pets and spend time with my husband and my family. I will forever be grateful.

I hope you have enjoyed reading a true devotional that illustrates how God made a way for me.

Won’t you let Him make a way for you? When you need help, ask God. Call upon Him!
