LESSONS FROM ROOM 903

As I sat in my mother's hospital room encouraging her through this latest ordeal of health problems, I secretly wrestled with my own frustration and confusion. While I did not get all of the answers I sought, the following are the lessons I learned in the midst of those troubling  moments in room 903. 

LIFE IS ALWAYS TEACHING IF YOU WILL BE A STUDENT

WHAT USED TO BE A SOURCE OF HELP, CAUSE OF COMFORT IN ONE SEASON CAN BECOME A BARRIER TO HEALING IN ANOTHER

TREATING A SYMPTOM IS NOT A CURE

MASKING PAIN BRINGS DEEPER CONSEQUENCES THAN DEALING WITH THE CORE ISSUE OF THE PAIN

MASKING IS A TEMPORARY BANDAID ON A GAPING WOUND, SOONER OR LATER WHAT'S BENEATH THE SURFACE WILL NOT BE CONTAINED

HIDING A PROBLEM IS A PROBLEM

IF YOU FEEL LIKE SOMETHING IS WRONG THEN SOMETHING IS WRONG. PAIN AND DISCOMFORT ARE GREAT INDICATORS THAT SOMETHING IS HAPPENING

PREVENTION IS A GOOD THING

THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR TRUE REST

THERE ARE NO EASY ANSWERS TO COMPLEX PROBLEMS

LOVE MOVES MOUNTAINS

SOMETIMES THE REAL PROBLEM IS NOT REVEALED UNTIL THERE HAVE BEEN TIMES OF GREAT TESTING

WE ARE DESIGNED TO HEAL

LOOK BEYOND THE SYMPTOMS. PEOPLE WANT TO BE HEALED BUT OFTEN DON'T KNOW WHERE OR HOW TO BEGIN. THOSE WHO DON'T DESIRE WHOLENESS (DUE TO MANY COMPLEX ISSUES) ARE STILL HUMAN AND DESERVED TO BE TREATED WITH DIGNITY

THERE ARE TIMES WHEN WHAT USED TO BE ENOUGH MAY NEED TO BE INCREASED. THE GREATER THE DESIRED OUTCOME THE MORE "BALM" NEEDS TO BE APPLIED. (In my Karen Clark-Sheard voice, JESUS IS A BALM IN GILEAD)  

WHAT WAS ONCE A PAIN RELIEVER IS NOW TOXIC AND THE SIDE AFFECTS HAVE BECOME DEBILITATING, CRIPPLING YOU AND THREATENING THE FUTURE OF YOUR VERY EXISTENCE AND YOUR QUALITY OF LIFE

YOU CANNOT ACCEPT EVERYTHING PRESCRIBED TO/FOR YOU WITHOUT A THOROUGH INVESTIGATION. CONSULT THE MANUFACTURER

GOD WILL SEND HELP. FAVOR STILL SHOWS UP IN DARK MOMENTS AND DARK PLACES

I pray that they bless you as much as they are blessing me.
