It is already 2241 hours but I won’t let this day just pass. On a day like this in the year 2017,It was confirmed by all tests that truly I literally was on the verge of losing my colon. A diagnosis that shook me.I was extremely helpless at the time and knew so little.But I was determined to fight till I could fight nomore.
Fast forward,one year later. I am not where I was then.I even can’t believe it’s me.God has surely been good to me.He has been with me on my restoration journey.I am forever indebted to Him.
In this journey I have learnt to give Him my all.I have learnt to trust Him fully with the process.And He has gradually transformed my lifestyle,my thinking and my view of Him.I have seen a tremendous improvement in my health.It is unbelievable the milestones I have achieved by His grace.He has worked wonders through my maintenance meds and I am grateful.
I am so grateful for the little things we take for granted.
- I am grateful for appetite.That I can enjoy meals like I used to before I got myself into this whole UC thing
- For restoring my blood levels.I am more than grateful God has continually seen me through this
- I thank God for Energy.Because I know there is a time all I could do was spend the whole day helpless in bed.I am so grateful.
- I am very grateful that I am back to serving God.What a joy,what a privilege.
It hasn’t been a walk in the park.If there is a time I dread is the end of the month because that means I have to do my medication refills for which I pay handsomely. But I no longer care because God has taught me the value of life.
When you still have all your systems intact,praise Him.Serve Him.Exalt His name.Do not wait for Him to remind you that you were created to worship Him.You better do it voluntarily.
And for anyone who’s in the middle of a storm,God knows.Better ask Him to give you grace to respond with gratitude because He sees the bigger picture.Just a matter of time and He will reveal Himself.
Even as you walk through valleys low,fear no evil.Learn to trust Him.He will light your way when you can’t see.
Through the fires, He will walk you through and you will come out without being consumed.He will take care of you.
Just like Shadrack,Meshack and Abednego,you will not be consumed by the fiery flames.Same way He shut the Lions’ mouths when Daniel was thrown in their den,same way He will shut all situations that threaten to bring you down.
Above all,allow His will for your life.
Mine is a story of hope,resilience and complete trust in God even when it absolutely makes no sense.
Every diagnosis that has a name shall bow under His Authority.
Till next time.
