I have had a terrible flare going on. I have the pain, which is nothing new, its not horrible, but there like always. This time however, I have been overcome, overwhelmed, and concsumed with fear, doubt, anxiety etc. I have not had this horrible feeling before. I am also "fuzzy". I am not real sure what fibro fog feels like, I hope this is what it is. Nontheless its the most awful feeling. I have prayed and prayed. I believe in the Lord, and I know that somehow, He will fortify me. He will not let me be alone in this. As I sat in my car outside a Wal-mart, I couldn't go in. Had a terrible panic attack, and could not go in, I grabbed my bible. I started flying through it, trying to find an answer!! Trying to find the words I needed to hear. I came to the Book of John. Chapter 11 verse 4. It reads as follows: "When He heard this Jesus said,"THIS SICKNESS WILL NOT END IN DEATH.NO, IT IS FOR GOD'S GLORY SO THAT GODS SON MAY BE GLORIFIED THROUGH IT". I sat there....My eyes were full of tears. I was overcome. I do believe that God, spoke through those verses, to me. I am certain of that. I have considered this moment all week. I am still having the flare. My body is sick. I am weak, and my balance is off. I am in pain, and have the little annoying symptoms hitting me still. But I also know that I will be ok. No matter what happens. I am not alone in this! I just thought that I would share this with you. That perhaps like me, you can see this as an opportunity, to glorify the Son, lean on Him, feel His Grace, and accept the lot you have been given. I pray that together we can become one...all us Fibromites, and Chronic Fatiguers, and show each other love, respect, and grattitude for being led into this area of worship. That we can CONQUER THE DEMON OF SICKNESS and rely on the comfort of the Lord!
