Heal me

I'm struggling. Tonight my blood pressure dipped dangerously low. My legs went numb. We called the doctors... they told me it's probably just the Mustard Seed. They told me to wait it out... and they told me what would make me have to come in. I was thankful that they didn't rush me into the ER.

My heart is heavy.

God... Lord of Heaven and Earth... hear my cry. Please heal me.  Take this away. I want to be healed.

I know that only you have the power to do that.

Hear my cry, Oh Lord.

"I will extol you, O LORD, for you have drawn me up
and have not let my foes rejoice over me.
O LORD my God, I cried to you for help,
and you have healed me.
O LORD, you have brought up my soul from Sheol;
you restored me to life from among those who go down to the pit.
Sing praises to the LORD, O you his saints,
and give thanks to his holy name.
For his anger is but for a moment,
and his favor is for a lifetime.
Weeping may tarry for the night,
but joy comes with the morning.
As for me, I said in my prosperity,
“I shall never be moved.”
By your favor, O LORD,
you made my mountain stand strong;
you hid your face;
I was dismayed.
To you, O LORD, I cry,
and to the Lord I plead for mercy:
“What profit is there in my death,
if I go down to the pit?
Will the dust praise you?
Will it tell of your faithfulness?
Hear, O LORD, and be merciful to me!
O LORD, be my helper!”
You have turned for me my mourning into dancing;
you have loosed my sackcloth
and clothed me with gladness,
that my glory may sing your praise and not be silent.
O LORD my God, I will give thanks to you forever!

(Psalm 30 ESV)

You are an inspiration to me (and I'm sure to others also). I don't know that I would be as strong as you are.
Thank you for your honesty and openness.
