Knee Injury

So, what happened last weekend while walking/jogging through Kennesaw Mountain. As I was putting my phone in my holster to put it on my hip... not paying attention. As I started to jog again I tripped over a tree stump and fell and injured my knee. I think I probably didn’t cry because I was really embarrassed. Naw, I didn’t cry because well I just didn’t cry but I was quite embarrassed. The fall required me having to get 6 stitches. One in the inside and 5 on the outside of the wound. Ouch. I am Thankful it was just a laceration (deep cut/tear of the flesh) and nothing more serious. No broken bones, etc. Not only did I damage my knee. I also scrapped my arms and one of my fingers got damaged too... one of the fingers that I burnt earlier this year. It healed from that incident. Now it has to heal from this one and grow new skin. Yeah, that was some fall. 

So, they gave me a Tetanus shot and Antibiotics because this occurred in the Mountains and all sorts of things travel through there. So, for precautions to prevent any further issues the shot and antibiotics were necessary. For pain, I was told to take Tylenol. Thankfully, this particular cut hasn’t been very painful. Just sore. I’ve only taken the Tylenol for pain the day it happen. The morning before church to ensure I wasn’t in pain while serving in Children’s Church. I took it again Monday morning before going to work because I wasn’t sure how I would do throughout the day working. Otherwise, I haven’t been in any pain really. I've just been SUPER tired. Besides being tired this week I started having flu-like symptoms and broke out in hives really bad one evening. Like really bad... the hives were all over my legs, buttocks, stomach and on my face. What a sight. I was like OMG.  What was that about? I think I ate some bad food one day. Thought maybe that was the cause but nope. Still having issues. Then it hit me... you may be having an allergic reaction to the Antibiotics. If this is the case... wouldn't be the first time. I have allergies to a lot of medicine. Thank God I rely on Him for healing. So, today is my last day taking the antibiotics so I will see how my body reacts to it... Meanwhile, I've been really sick this week.

This whole knee injury has really set me back. I have stuff to do. Which I can't get done in this current condition. With me being sick on top of it... I can't function correctly. Selah. If you follow me on Instagram... you would know I've been working out...trying to reach a goal...and now I'm being slightly backtrack. Not sure when I will be able to work out extensively again. Stitches don't get removed for another week. However, I will not complain because this whole situation could have been way worse. 

Having this leg issue. Really makes me appreciate being well when I am well and having all of my limbs to maneuver around. It's pretty exhausting trying to get things done with this injured knee. Takes me a lot longer to get things done. My work this week... has been completed just at a much slower pace. Things normally take an hour or two have been taking like the whole day. I have a new respect for people who deal with this issue daily.  Also lets me know it sure is not in God's will for us to be ill/sick/injured.... because when we are... it makes it that much more difficult to do His work. That is not His will for our lives. 

When you are sick... All sorts of crazy stuff can go through your head.  Like seriously. I was like Lord. I know this is a spiritual attack and this enemy is really not letting up on me at all. He's getting very vicious. Seriously. So, many things have happened recently but this takes the cake. I was having a bad moment and I was like Lord. I'm not sure if I am cut out for this life. I mean. The more I share... the more these attacks and these weird people from out of nowhere pops up and attack me. Selah. My patience is running low. All sorts of crazy stuff started going through my head. I thought perhaps I shouldn't continue writing my book. Maybe I should just live a normal life. Lol. What's normal?

Further proves to me; when you are doing something for God. You really, will have to PUSH yourself…because the enemy is going to fight you every step of the way. The enemy knows your weaknesses and will use situations, circumstances and people to get to you. You have to stay alert at all times. Arrgh. Honestly, this week I was feeling very weak... but I asked myself what will be of my life if I don't continue this fight. Have you seen the world? The enemy is running rampant right now. Like seriously. Just put on your shield of Faith Coasta and keep it moving. God got you. Abide in Him and He will be with you every step of the way. Selah. This battle is surely the Lords and in Him... we are VICTORIOUS. I had to encourage myself. I didn't have the energy to do much of anything this week. So, I listen to worship music... to uplift my spirit as I lay in my bed. 

As I continue, to fight for my life; you guys keep fighting the good fight of Faith.

Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
