This is Mt. Pisgah located roughly 1.5 miles from our house. Last week I decided to ride my bike out there and walk up. It wasn’t easy and a far cry from what I used to do for work outs, which is a humbling experience, but I was able to do it. I went out a total of three times last week. Today I rode my bike out again and went up twice (with breaks). By the end of 2014 I was living between my bed and the couch. Taking a shower was an effort and Bob had to do everything in addition to his job. I was also taking 5 or 6 medications and probably about 25 supplements. Now the only medications I take are bio-identical hormones (though I eventually want to wean off of them) and I take 4 or 5 supplements so I am thankful for what I AM able to do.

Focusing on what IS working in your life and the things that are good (Philippians 4:8) is so important, especially if you are trying to recover from an illness, chronic or otherwise. Constantly talking about how bad you are feeling, how much pain you are in, how miserable you are, etc. will only get you more of the same. This goes for physical as well as emotional illnesses. I KNOW it’s hard – I’ve been there and not talking about how I was feeling wasn’t easy, but it’s possible. I have been bedridden, I have been depressed, I have dealt with chronic pain, I have dealt with anxiety and so much more. There IS a way out and it starts with your thought life.

I don’t have it all figured out, I am still resisting symptoms, if I have been standing for a long time and don’t see a shift I consider seeing a doctor, getting testing done, and/or taking something to help me. But I don’t see doctors or supplements or medications as my healer. God is the only true healer. What is impossible for the medical community is possible for God, and He is a good, and just God. He is not some mysterious God who strikes people with illness, heals some but not others, or uses illness to teach us a lesson. Your earthly father wouldn’t inflict you with an illness to teach you a lesson (at least I hope he wouldn’t), so why do you believe that your heavenly Father would do so? Jesus healed all and Jesus came to do the will of his Father (see Matthew 4:23, Matthew 9:35, John 6:38 among others).

I stopped researching illness, I stopped listening to Lyme, Thyroid, Depression, and other summits, I stopped freaking out about every new symptom or mosquito bite, I stopped believing that the moon affects symptoms, I stopped treating Lyme disease, candida, and parasites, and instead focused on rewiring my brain and renewing my mind (Romans 12:2, 2 Corinthians 10:5). None of it was easy and some things are taking longer than others to heal, but I have seen more healing in the last 2 1/2 years focusing on my thought life and believing God for healing, than I did in the 9 years I was seeing doctors, popping pills, and doing crazy treatments at home. Like doing my own MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) IVs or injecting my thyroid with procaine. Yes, I stuck a needle into my thyroid twice a week and injected procaine into it. I still can’t believe all the crazy things I did in an attempt to regain my health when there is a much better way. God!

This post is not intended to make you feel bad or to point fingers. Like I said above, I am not yet where I need to be, and I tried the doctor/medication/supplement route myself. My hope is that this post will inspire you to at least consider that there is a better way. Not necessarily an easy way, although it can be, but a better way and most definitely a less expensive way.
