I was thanking the Lord for a new direction and for a acupuncture experience that seemed positive. I expressed gratitude for the way I was treated in the office and prayed extra hard that this may be the answer I was looking for to achieve better health.
I noticed the pressure points where the needles had been inserted began to itch as I prayed.
I had a flood of images overwhelm my mind. The needles had been placed in my feet, hands and wrists. I gained an understanding that just as my spirit needed the Savior, with his marks in his feet, hands, and wrists, to overcome the "illness" that plague the spirit, my body needed the help of an outside source. I could see that Malia (the person with the needles) symbolised the Savior for me in this adventure. I needed help. I am not going to conquer this weight issue on my own. I need help beyond the obvious.
I am not clearly expressing what I felt and what I learned, which is sad, because I learned a ton in this mornings prayer. I can say that I feel confident that I am on a good path. It is good to seek outside help to heal from what keeps me from success. I can say, that no matter the weight loss or out come, I am doing all that I can to succeed and that the Lord is mindful of my efforts, desires and concerns.
It's nice to know that God is listening, even if I don't fully understand His answers, nor able to communicate those answers to others.
