It has been a year today since I became ill. 365 days ago I was in bed, and would remain there for much of the summer. Pain wracked my body. I could not eat. I could not think straight. The most basic of tasks were difficult. Crohn’s Disease had reared its ugly head in a very big way.
Fast forward to today. A year later, my life has been restored. I could tell you what I have done. The treatment I have received. The lifestyle changes I have instituted. However, that would be missing the big picture. That would be withholding glory and praise from the One who deserves all the credit.
I am able to enjoy these moments of healing because of the Great Physician. He allowed my health to be restored, I certainly was not entitled to it. Yet, I am greatful for it. I am reminded that He is not done with me. He has a purpose for me on this earth and He brought me through this dark time so I could complete what He created me to do.
I am eagerly anticipated a summer full of fun with my family. A season without physical limitations. Hence, today I reflect. I remember what God brought me through. I appreciate all those who prayed and supported me through the dark moments, especially my Craig. Thank you for your prayers…they were answered.
LORD my God, I called to you for help, and you healed me. Psalm 30:2
I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart, and I will glorify your name forever. Psalm 86:12
