No matter personal issue or disease we go through, we will be ok because Jesus is on our side. He will never let you fight alone. I am proof of that since there was a time where I felt alone in my struggle with Meniere’s Disease.
As many of Americans are getting to celebrate Thankgiving Day, we reflect on what we are thankful for. People will mention being thankful for family, friends, overcoming an illness, a new job, a promotion, new additions to the family, & many other things. But let us not forget the biggest reason to be thankful is that God loves us & created everything around us. Even after doing that He sent his only son Jesus, who willingly died on the cross for us. And no matter what negativity we throw at God, He is always on our side to help.
Hope everyone has a wonderful Thankgiving. I want to thank everyone that follows my blog & has left comments regarding your faith or Meniere’s. I am just a small fish in a huge pond & like Nemo, I just keep swimming to others suffering so I can help. We have to band together in support so that we can all feel better, either spiritually or phyiscally. Find the light in the darkness.
With any illiness fear will creep in & start to take over you life. It can be harder to fight the longer a person is sick. I was like that for a long time not seeing any positive to Meniere’s Disease. But we must remind ourselves that fear is of the devil. He will creep in & try to bring you down. We can fight it by believing that Jesus is in control. That no matter how bad things can get Jesus will hold you up. And when you think He has totally forgot about you, what actually is happening is Jesus is helping you grow stronger. Keep the faith give all your fears to Jesus. I did and it was a huge relief. When I did it that is when my outlook on Meniere’s changed. I am no longer a prisoner to it but a vessel of Jesus to help others who suffer. Same can be true with all the crazy events that are happening in the U.S. The devil wants to bring us down in the world but we need to fight back fear by doing something positive. Just one random act of kindness will help a person but also will help you heart heal. It can be as simple as helping an older person in the grocery store. The more we do the more fear will not win.
When I get Meniere’s symptoms I remind myself to be patient & it will pass. Stressing out on how bad I might end up feels only triggers more symptoms. I found hope in Jesus & no matter how bad I might feel, He suffered so much more for us & He will continue to help us through anything.
Once I realized this, the fear & anxiety I felt during a severe vertigo attack was easier to handle. I remember before that, the tiniest vertigo twitch would put me in panic mode a things got worst a lot faster.
The Lord has huge shoulders. Let Him help you. He will never push you away.
