While my family & friends have helped me when my Meniere’s Disease was at it’s worst, it was learning the truth about Jesus that help me through it & gain me a purpose to take my struggles & share them with others. If only helping one person suffering from Meniere’s, then I am doing Christ’s work.

Romans 8:18

Faith & Meniere’s Disease

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
Psalm 34:18 NIV
https://bible.com/verse-of-the-day/psa.34.18/2922

Many Meniere’s sufferers might be wondering why I seem to post more bible verses on page, instead of information on the disease. But believe me, it’s all connected.

  1. Because of Christ: I was able to find the right doctors that worked with me to control my Meniere’s.
  2. Because of Christ: My fears & anxiety of having another severe vertigo attack are gone. When I start to feel uncomfortable I pray.
  3. Because of Christ: I felt need to help others. God had me suffer so bad for a time so I can give advice & hope.

No matter how bad things get, just remember you are not alone in the fight with Meniere’s.

Romans 12:21

Don’t let evil conquer you, but conquer evil by doing good.
Romans 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.

Psalms 27:1

The Lord is my light and my salvation— so why should I be afraid? The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble?
Psalms 27:1 NLT

1 Peter 5:10

A verse I believe in when dealing with Meniere’s. While has been a challenge at time, I know God has a bigger plan for me. First get closer to Him so I could then help others. We are never alone.

In his kindness God called you to share in his eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus. So after you have suffered a little while, he will restore, support, and strengthen you, and he will place you on a firm foundation.
1 Peter 5:10 NLT
