“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” – Philippians 4:13
The last few weeks have been absolutely mind blowing. The current events have been stressful as well as very concerning for those living with autoimmune disorders.
Although we are living in times of uncertainty, it doesn’t change the need for routine Rheumatology, Neurology and lab follow up appointments. After waiting three months for an appointment, now, I’m reluctant to step foot into the office. Even though I am hesitant, faith takes over, and I find myself in a place of unexplainable peace.
Through the struggles of all of this madness, fear and pain, faith allows us to believe tomorrow will be a brighter day, even before tomorrow comes. Faith explains that we all struggle with issues, but we should not identify with those issues.
Through no fault of our own, we find ourselves identifying with whatever we are going through to the point it literally consumes us. At times, others begin to do so as well because this is what we’ve become. As I stated in a previous blog, I am my biggest opponent, maybe even my own worst enemy. Possibly others can relate.
When we are stressed, experiencing pain and anxiety, it is difficult to have a clear perspective. Focus on the fact that you are amazing, and you are fierce! Have faith that tomorrow will be a brighter day!
