There is a popular saying about needles being your best friend even though it has never been proven for some inexplicable reasons. Having needles go in and out of me like it’s a needle holiday somewhere in Ireland has made me see needles in fresh light . In the light of the cross.
Honestly if someone had stepped forward to say they would take the shots I have been given these days, I would confess that they love me . More so if the person was a stranger who did not know if I was a wonderful or deserving person.
Also, I have learnt something about the betrayal of the human body .The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. The collapse of your vein four times because your heart was beating too fast and your hands had grown cold and your mouth dry exposes you . Do you really believe the words ” Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death , I will not fear” or “He is always with me even unto the ends of the earth” or ” to live is Christ and to die is gain ” or .. and the list goes on.
Again that pointed me to Christ. I now understand that the body of Jesus was 100 percent percent willing to die. Unlike mine, there was no relunctant cell in His body . His body went willingly to the cross to be nailed to it . Every thing in His body cried “I give myself freely to be crucified” Nothing in Him withdrew. He meant His words and the meditations of His heart were not contrary in any way to His actions. He was perfect and that is what needles have helped me see recently .
It is marvellous how God lets you see things in every experience you go through.
