If you read my last post, Dealing with Fatigue, you’ll remember the extreme fatigue that hit me about a few days after my treatment. When I wrote that post, I was still pretty fatigued, not quite as bad as it had been, but still in the middle of it.
I wrote that post, posted it online and shared it across my social media accounts. I closed my laptop and settled back to watch some TV. However, within minutes, at most maybe 15 minutes afterwards, I suddenly felt a heavy weight lift from me and the fatigue was gone. And it hasn’t returned.
God is good and he came through again. In that post I talked about putting our faith in God and he will provide us peace and rest. And he did just that. By the time of that post, the fatigue had me mentally exhausted as well as physically. I was feeling the weight of the illness and all that was to come with that. But through writing that post and researching some of the scripture I used in it, I remembered that God is above it all. God is in control of it. I just needed to learn to give it to Him.
I want to be sure my journey is filled with joy and happiness, not depression and dread. My God will fill me with that joy and happiness. He will fill me with the energy that I need and provide the rest that I require. I just have to put my faith in him.
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.Galatians 2:20
Christ lives in me. I live my life, my journey, by faith in Jesus Christ. He gave himself for me, so I give myself to Him.
I have lots of these type of praise stories that have happened just since my diagnosis. I plan on sharing more of those, as they bring out that joy and happiness that Christ living in me fills me with.
Praise God for his son. Praise God for his peace and rest. Praise God for the privilege of serving Him in my journey.
