Don’t Give Up On God
I’m still breathing in my new normal. They say if God brings you to it. Then, surely God will take you through it. Well, that’s exactly what I experienced firsthand. I truly had to see it to believe it. Honestly, I didn’t always see things working out in any positive way. I was prepared to wave my white flag of surrender at any moment.
Most mornings I could barely get out of the bed. Most days I could barely handle each minute. Most nights the only way I got to sleep was by intoxicating myself with lots of medications. It was nothing for me to spend 12 to 14 hours in the bed and 6-8 hours in the tub. Misery was my main company for much of the past four years.
Then, God reached into my desperate situation. Pulling me out of such a deep distressed black hole. I saw no way out or through before. Then, God proved He had bee working everything for my good and His glory all along. Everyday I feel like I’m getting stronger and stronger. I may not be cured, but I’m certainly on the other side of the valley.
Who knew that a total change in my diet would bring so much promise. For 45 days straight I’ve just stay away from all inflammatory foods. Now, I’m feeding myself nothing but whole and healthy foods. It’s breathing new life in me everyday that I stick to the script. I will spend my life telling others in breathtaking chronic pain there is always hope for your situation. Just put your little hand in God’s big hand. He won’t let you down. Do all that you can while trusting God for all that you can’t do.
“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
