Im my weight loss testimonial page of this site I detail a lot of my journey including my brushed with Atrial Fibrillation. It has been a thorn in my side (or in my chest) since 2010 when I was first officially diagnosed with it but I likely had struggled with it for a few years before that too and just didn't realize it for what it was.
Afib has three stages, the first is what I had and it manifested in a severe fluttering of the atriums of the heart (top 2 chambers) and is triggered by erratic electrical impulses that begin to compete with your normal SR node which under normal circumstances sets the pattern for the normal, sinus rhythm . WHile some people can slide in and out of these irregular heart rhythms and don't even realize it, I was one who would pop out of normal rhythm and be completely devastated by it. if I was in Afib, I could barely walk without spiking my heart rate into the 170s or higher many times.
Needless to say, the instant I noticed I was in Afib, getting back into normal rhythm would always become the number one priority in my life and I developed several unique ways of getting myself back into normal rhythm. After working with a couple of cardiologists who really knew their stuff, I was able to get on an anti-arrhythmic drug that would keep me clear of Afib for long periods, sometimes upwards to a year at a time but eventually I would always slide back in it.
When I weighed 500 pounds and the Holy Spirit healed my nervous system restoring my movement by freeing me of paralysis, I had a flame ignited within me to better my own health. In fact the Lord spoke to me several times about helping others with weight loss and overall health in their own life even as I was completely out of shape myself. Have you ever been there where God reveals a piece of your future and you see absolutely no way for that to be a reality? if not, you haven't gone deep enough with Him yet.
According to doctors I dodged several big bullets over the years that should have killed or at least debilitated me including paralysis, clots, strokes, diabetes, irregular heart rhythms, morbid obesity, High blood pressure and a litany of major and minor aches, pains and problems. Thru God's Grace and healing touch meeting with my renewed determination to succeed, I had overcame every single one of those obstacles...except the Afib. It was the one thing that continually taunted me. It was a Satanic middle finger back against the amazing work God had done in me and with each time it occurred, my resolve to be rid of it entirely grew.
After putting several fleeces out before the Lord and having Him meet every single one, I had a peace about and agreed to have an Afib Ablation. This is where they go in thru the veins in your legs and up into the inside of the heart and cryo-freeze the common trouble areas that carry the rogue electronic impulses that most commonly kick people like me into Afib. That is now behind me and the inside of my heart is currenty healing up from that procedure nicely.
I believe this will completely resolve this lone outstanding health issue and allow me to complete the last piece of my weight loss journey uninterrupted. This is also important as the future is so ripe with amazing possibilities for ministry and I am even praying about getting into local politics a bit. Lots of things to consider but this one thing I know... the scripture says mighty is the wisdom of the Lord. Let me give you a different word for Wisdom .. instead of wisdom, use the word Correction. Mighty is the Correction of the Lord. Ask the Lord for wisdom (Correction) and He will give it to you freely.
You are only one unusual instruction away from incredible turn around in your life. Once you become humble enough to be corrected by the Lord, your path to victory becomes much more clear. You are literally only one heartbeat away from radical change and turn around for the better...
I'll keep you readers updated on my status and as it warms up more and more here in Ohio, I plan on being more active than ever before as with this final piece of the health puzzle in place now, destiny is simply a series of choices for me to see, accept and carry through on... and I intend to do just that.
