Blood Work

“We better get some blood work done to figure this out,” Dr. Bassmen said. “The timing of all of this might be coincidental since you responded well to the meds.”

So to the lab I went.

I never get sick. My mind just doesn’t think in sickness. I joke and tell people they can catch my health. Well, it’s only half a joke–I really think they can… health can be contagious, you know.

So when I woke up with red patches all over my chest one day, I kind of ignored them. Until they covered my entire body a few days later. Turns out it was Lyme disease. Nasty stuff.

And then, I just did not feel right after the antibiotics were done. Thus the blood work.

Sitting in the lab, I watched my blood filling the little vials, one by one. And I marveled at the fact that the answer to my symptoms was hidden within this blood that runs through my veins. In a few hours, tests performed on this blood will reveal what’s up with my body.


“The answer is in the blood,” I heard Him whisper in my spirit.

I love how God speaks to me about deep stuff in the most ordinary of moments.

My blood will show the doctors what my body needs. His blood has shown the way for the healing of man. From the inside out–Spirit, Soul and Body.

My blood will make a way for me to get better. His blood has made a way for the world to be free. From the inside out–Spirit, Soul and Body.

The blood, it holds the answer to all of mankind’s questions.

The man in the lab labels my vials and puts a band-aid on my arm.

“All done,” he said. “You are free to go now.”

I roll my sleeve back down and thank him. And I leave with a skip in my step.

My blood will disclose what I need. But one thing I know: I am all done indeed. The blood has set me free. From the inside out.
