Journey to Healing (Intro-Part 1 of 7)
The worship music is playing while I sit here on the balcony eating pancakes. The warmth of the sun beats on my face. An ambulance drives by, and I suddenly burst into tears. The trauma and memories of my 12 years of suffering brings me to my knees, and I give THANKS to God for His healing touch.
It wasn’t that long ago that my health was in ruins and despair had taken over my body. I had become a young disabled mom with a severe, chronic illness and even had a stroke at the age of 32. In those days of suffering, I thought my life was at the end. I had lost all hope of ever getting better, or being healed.
Almost two years later, I am still standing! I am a living, breathing, walking miracle. Jesus healed me! After twelve years of searching the world for a cure—it was my time with Jesus in my prayer closet that truly healed me.
Jesus rattled my dry bones and rose me from my grave when I hit rock bottom and thought all my hope had died. It was then that Jesus spoke “It’s not over” into my heart! The devil tried to break me down, but Jesus wrapped me in His arms, showing me the path out of the darkness one step at a time (Psalm 119:105).
If you are a chronic illness mom, don’t give up HOPE. God’s not finished with you! You are an unstoppable force when you believe Jesus is with you and has a plan for your life. Jesus is with you to carry you. You may not see it now, but this illness will show His glory (John 11:4).
If you feel like you’re losing the fight in you, don’t forget WHO lives inside of you. His strength never gives in. Let His love mend your broken heart today because this is His battle, and I’ve got good news…He has already won!
“Haven’t I commanded you: be strong and courageous? Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
