Hello everyone and God bless you all! I hope this Sunday (or Monday in some parts of the world) finds you well. I have not been so well today. I am humbly asking for prayer from all my brothers and sisters in Christ. I just spent the last three hours suffering a severe blood sugar issue due to my Celiac. The morning started off fine, but after breakfast I was on my knees with my head hung low for almost three hours straight. I felt dizzy and hot and so nauseous it dropped me to my knees. This happens sometimes with Celiac. I don’t know if I ate too many waffles at breakfast or what, but I had a massive blood sugar spike and I just about lost my breakfast all over the floor. Thank God I didn’t get sick like that, but it took me since 11 a.m. to get to the point where I could stand up and walk around again. It caused a bad headache, which usually accompanies a blood sugar drop or spike, but that went away too, praise God. This disease can be debilitating at times, but I know the Lord is holding me. I can feel His power in me like a lion!
I was going to write a post this morning, but instead I faced another battle. I am fighting this disease in the power of the Lord, so I appreciate your prayers! I hold onto my faith in Jesus every day and my hope in Him is unwavering despite the constant suffering. I am 100% sure of what I hope for and I am 100% certain of what I do not see. Sometimes it may seem hard to keep on in the faith, but don’t ever give up! Keep the faith! We are not home yet and we can’t see Heaven here in the valley of the shadow of death, but we sure can feel it inside our souls! When I was on my knees today suffering severe nausea, I whispered to the Lord through the pain and simply said, “Help me Lord.” I could feel His power within me giving me strength in the midst of it just like I have so many times before since I was diagnosed. I have been trained by this suffering to run to Jesus without hesitation. He is my rock and my fortress in times of trouble. He is my rock and my fortress in my whole life!
That is what we should be doing in all areas of our life. Run to Jesus and don’t hesitate! Not just when we are on our knees doubled over in pain, but at all times in all things. One thing is for sure, when this disease knocks me to my knees, I sure get a lot of praying done and I rise stronger every time!
I’m not sure what happened today, but I know the Lord is using it and I trust He has me. He told me He would make a way regarding my health and finances. I know He hears my prayers and I know He loves me. I will keep pressing on in my faith and trusting that He has good plans for me to prosper me and give me hope and a future. If you are suffering today, know that you are not alone and you are not abandoned. I know it hurts, believe me, I know. I also know God’s love is greater than any hurt this world can throw at us! Keep your faith in Jesus sure and strong! He is alive and He is coming back soon!
“Behold, I am coming soon! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy in this book.”
Jesus in Revelation 22:7
Give Jesus your pain. Pour out your heart to Him. Receive the free gift of salvation He offers you through faith in Him! The power of the Holy Spirit inside of me is greater than this disease of this fallen world! If you do not yet know that power, I pray you receive it today! May the Lord pour out His great healing on all of us in the Name of Jesus, amen!
“That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”
Grace and peace to you all and thank you for your prayers!
