Four Years and Counting

thI was healed four years and two days ago. So much has changed because of my diagnosis and miraculous healing, and yet I don’t even think about it that much anymore. I think of the side effects of the surgeries and medicines, but don’t always live like someone who received such an awesome gift.

I have been blessed so much in my life, and even in huge ways since my last post. I really appreciate the prayers and support, I’m glad I shared about the depression and other troubles. The Lord has been so gracious to me that I’m out of the pit and am more aware of His glory than ever. He’s encouraged me with people and circumstances that speak to my Spirit and strengthen my faith.

I should share that since my post many have told me that they need or needed antidepressants after their bodies stopped producing estrogen (for all sorts of reasons). Several were able to wean off the drugs after a few years, and others continue. There’s no shame if you’re doing what God wants you to do, and sometimes He wants us to take medicine. I can definitely relate to more people with all the life and medical experiences I’ve had in the past five years.

More importantly, God is just so good that it’s hard to not scream and shout about Him. He is always there. He knows everything. He answers. He is in control. If we don’t see it or don’t like it, there’s something wrong with our hearts, not His. He is just, He is righteous, He is worthy. He never changes. He always wins.

Philippians 4:4-8, “Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
