Spending time alone with God or in meditation was not easy at all. I am not a sit still, be quiet kind of person. In fact you could say I have a spirit of busyness. In our most recent Inspirational email sent out to subscribers we discussed 5 steps to meditation. I had followed the steps, but I still had a slip up when I first started. But God quickly got my attention and I got back on track. Quieting my mind was also difficult. Maybe because back then I started meditating in the evening after work or maybe just because being still and quiet was not my thing or because I had not been trained to do so. But as I kept committing and following through it got better. I even started to look forward to it and started hearing God’s voice!
In 2009 I had been wrestling with thyroid problems. According to this article by Mercola.com mounting research shows that 10 to 40 percent of people living in the United States have suboptimal thyroid function. An under or overactive thyroid can present many problems as noted in the article. But for me the issues came at a time when I was just starting to contemplate having children. During meditation with Him, He told me I would get news at my doctor’s appointment I would not like in His comforting voice.
It was that I needed my thyroid out. My other medical doctor and family encouraged me to wait until after I conceived. I was conflicted and was seeking man for answers. But when I found none I turned to God where I should have started. Spending time alone with God, over a couple of days after work, I began to be at peace with the decision to get it removed.
But in the big picture, God was positioning me to speak a word to one of His daughter’s that happened to be my nurse. And it was a word she needed! And 3 years later I conceived not just one baby, but twins. And another in 2015. God is awesome!

and my thoughts than your thoughts.
