Romans 8:37

No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.
Romans 8:37 NLT
https://bible.com/bible/116/rom.8.37.NLT

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.

Being Thankful

I will praise you, Lord , with all my heart; I will tell of all the marvelous things you have done.
Psalms 9:1 NLT
https://bible.com/bible/116/psa.9.1.NLT

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.

Love you all

Naomi

Romans 12:21

Don’t let evil conquer you, but conquer evil by doing good.
Romans 12:21 NLT
https://bible.com/bible/116/rom.12.21.NLT

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.

John 1:5

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.
John 1:5 NLT
https://bible.com/bible/116/jhn.1.5.NLT

No matter how bad an illness can be, there is a tiny light that shines at the end of the tunnel. Jesus helped me make the light bigger so that it overcame the darkness. He is always ready to hel you.

1 Peter 1:8‭-‬9

You love him even though you have never seen him. Though you do not see him now, you trust him; and you rejoice with a glorious, inexpressible joy. The reward for trusting him will be the salvation of your souls.
1 Peter 1:8‭-‬9 NLT
https://bible.com/bible/116/1pe.1.8-9.NLT

When my Meniere’s bothers me, I remind myself that my suffering was not even close to what Jesus did for us, willingly. While in that moment, it might feel uncomfortable, it is only temporary. By at least focusing on one positive it has helped me through aniexty moments. So find one thing & hold it tightly so you can pull it out of a box to help you. In time you may even add some more to the box.

Matthew 6:34

“So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.
Matthew 6:34 NLT
https://bible.com/bible/116/mat.6.34.NLT

Don’t let the fear of disease or personal problem take over your future. Each day can be different. Dwelling on what youmay not be able to do will only stress you out & make you feel worse.

Been there & done that. Now I have peace knowing God’s got this. Stay focused on Him & he will give you strength.

Romans 12:12

Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.
Romans 12:12 NLT
https://bible.com/bible/116/rom.12.12.NLT

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.
