I'm on a Transitional Journey

Iyar, the second month of the Hebrew calendar, is a month of transition. We are transitioning from Passover to Pentecost. Each day of Iyar represents another step in this spiritual journey toward Sinai. I am keenly aware that I am in a season of transition, physically and spiritually.  

"Shortly after the Exodus, the thirsty Israelites reached a well of bitter water. Moses cast a tree into the water, and it miraculously became sweet. G‑d then promised that if Israel followed His ways, "the diseases I have placed on Egypt I will not place upon you, for I am G-d your Healer. The acronym for this last phrase spells out the name of the month of Iyar, thus indicating that Iyar is a propitious time for healing."

I wanted to give an update on my physical condition. Six months ago I was diagnosed with an inherited heart condition. The cardiologist said it could only be treated with medications. Of course, I immediately added healing prayer and within three months further testing revealed my condition had improved. I return to the cardiologist in another month for a check-up. Although my heart condition is improved I am aware that I am not fully whole. 

I purposely turned this over to the Lord on Passover/Easter. "Because He lives I shall live also." I also chose to eat a more healthy diet and to lose unhealthy weight. The cardiologist told me that losing weight would not make any difference with my particular heart condition. I am losing it anyway; because it can't hurt anything.

The word Iyar in Hebrew is an acronym for the phrase Ani Hashem Rophecha, which means, "I am God, your Healer." This is a month that is especially auspicious for all forms of healing. This month I am pressing into our healing God! I am praying and believing that God will heal my physical heart and restore my health. I am on a transitional journey.
