Eyes On Jesus Now

Pic quote Hebrews 12 v 2

There are a lot of crazy things going on in the world these days that have many people worried.  On top of that, people are dealing with disease and pain and a myriad of other troubles from health to finances.  Here is my best advice, just keep your eyes on Jesus!  He knows the way and He will see us through.  He told us these days were coming and He told us we would have trouble in this world, so rest in Him and let His peace rule your heart.

The Lord reminded me of this verse in Hebrews today because I am fighting this disease pretty hard right now.  Many people with Celiac say the disease is like having a pet dragon.  Sometimes we ride the dragon and it doesn’t hurt us and sometimes the dragon turns on us and attacks.  I hate Celiac Disease and if it were a dragon, I would chop its head clean off with a big ol’ Braveheart sword!  Freeeeeeeedom!

Hey, at least I can still joke about it right?  It will be 8 years fighting this disease on January 6th, 2020.  My intestines have taken a beating over that time and I am having issues because of it.

The additional health issue of Cachexia, caused by the damage to my small intestine, is very difficult to manage.  There is pain and blood sugar problems involved at times and I lose a lot of weight.  I know the Lord is good and He has good plans for me and my family, so I will suit up in God’s armor and keep marching forward!

“We live by faith, not by sight.”

2 Corinthians 5:7

Keep your eyes on Jesus, armor up, and keep your sword sharp!  There are always future battles around the corner.  Do battle on your knees and lift it up to the Lord!  We are victorious in Jesus!

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace.  In this world you will have trouble.  But take heart!  I have overcome the world.”

Jesus speaking in John 16:33

Thank you all for your prayers!

Grace and peace to you all!

  1. You are a mighty warrior, Ryan, thay doesnt give up (and you do look good in your armor)!! God bless you, and I am praying for your healing. Keeping Jesus in our heart and mind does get us through this life and I am thankful you feel that way, too. We will be with him one day, and he is with us now! Love you, Ryan!

  2. I won’t say I feel your pain, but I understand. Something that helps me, but not a lot of other people, is that instead of fighting the ‘good-fight’ or praying for healing, I have just prayed for my understanding and to be used by the Lord. Now when the body attacks I just say over and over, “not my will but thine”. Then I hide for a few days. Yes, so many diss me for not praying for healing, but I figured if I kept the disease then maybe I will be sparing someone else. Each of us learn to cope in so many different ways and that is what makes us ‘special’. Prayers.

  3. I’m trying to do the same right now with some autoimmune issues and other stresses. I’m so tired today and have been all week and it’s hard to focus on Jesus when chaos is swirling around us … but I’m trying
