Healing

A year ago my health was horrible. I was in pain, and exhausted all the time. I had difficulty, and pain when I would lay down, sit, stand, and walk. It has almost been a year since my life changed completely. I don’t even feel like the same person. My recovery, and healing didn’t happen over night. Thinking about how I used to feel makes all the milestones, and achievements in my recovery feel amazing.

Being able to go on vacation was amazing accomplishment. I feel like I was able to let go that part of my life behind for good. When I was on vacation I didn’t think of myself as sick. I am now starting to think of myself as healed.

1 John 5:14 “This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.”

Deuteronomy 4:29 “But from there you will seek the Lord your God and you will find him, if you search after him with all your heart and with all your soul.”

Faith through illness

Growing up I always thought I had a strong faith. When I was younger it was easy to feel like I had a strong faith when things in my life are going well. It wasn’t until I had been sick for a few years that I finally realized that I never really knew what it truly meant to put all of trust in God, and put my life completely in his hands. It took me being a my lowest point of pain, and desperation that I was I able to ask God to take complete control of my life.

There have been so many times where I ran from God instead of running to him. When I was sick I there were many different periods of times where I would feel lost, angry, depressed, or confused. I have learned throughout the years that being apart from God is not a freedom its a loss. It only makes the challenges even harder to handle.

After seven years of being sick, I am starting to feel better than I have in years. This is what I have always hoped and prayed for. God is Good. Having faith through the most difficult times has been so important, and it has helped me to be able to move forward with my life.

“These trials have come so that your faith of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.” 1 Peter 1:7
