Well if I depended on myself not too good. I have had asthma since birth. It was real hard when I was much younger. I remember most of my life not being able to breath even with Med's. Back then they did not have much meds out that would not make you nervous, or your heart race. Many nights while I was a young girl my mother had to hold me upright so I could breath. Too many hospital visits to count.
At the age of 35 I had a very close encounter with death and I was not ready to meet God. At that time I had not received Christ as savior. Through the prayers of my hd friends, his prayers, God in his mercy and kindness he brought me back to the land of living. I can say this with truth since I received Christ as savior I have not had any more asthma attacks. I believe I am healed of it. I thank him every day.
With my third pregnancy I developed diabetes and high blood pressure and I wanted so desperately not to have to deal with the regular hospital. So I found out that their were midwives at the clinic in my town. The Lord knew that I wanted that. So he provided. They worked with me even though I was what they called high risk. My blood sugars were normal. I stayed strictly to my diet and exercise routine and visited the clinic every week. Jesus was with me all the way. I was not fearful at any of the reports of what could happen to me or my baby. I walked until the second week of my ninth month of pregnancy. I started cramping and had to stop walking. The Lord was with me through all of this. So I trust him, and I know him to be a healer. If he wants me to wait for my healing for high blood pressure and diabetes I will with gladness. I say this by his grace. He is still good even with my goings thur. He will never leave or forsake me.
How well do I roll with the punches of life--- with Gods help. He helps me over them, thur them, and at times he removes them. I still give him thanks, All things work out to the good of them that trust him. My life is in his hands.
