Most know I’ve been in quite a battle the past three years. I’ve had countless sleepless nights. Many days my body was covered with a nerve driven rash. So many days and nights I wondered how much more I could take. I seriously thought I was having a complete life meltdown. I simply hoped and prayed my health might improve one day.
Slowly, but surely my quality of life has returned. Yes, I still have major nerve damage and continued pain. But, I’m now able to sleep every night once I take my medications. I’m consistently walking and swimming to get stronger. My pain is bearable most of the time thanks to my stimulator. I can focus much better than I could in days gone by despite my medications. I’m now even getting the medical care I needed. Many things in my overall life are beginning to look up. Most of all, I feel like I have hope again.
Fortunately, I’ve kept daily notes of my past struggles and progress. This gives me measurable proof of what God has done. Sometimes it feels like nothing has changed. However, the facts speak for themselves. In the midst of a long term healing journey its best you journal your progress. This way you too can look back and see how much God has done over time. I’m very grateful to God for His goodness.
“The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.” Psalm 126:3
