It’s Been a Year

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
