A test of Faith.

Do I listen to the word of God? or do I listen to the screaming voice of pain? I walk under a test of faith and it is not an easy walk because it requires my co-operation, my submission, consistency in the word of God, prayer, and declaring God’s word to be true, what breaks that consistency is illness, I state what I suffer from not to ask for sympathy because that will not help me, I state what I suffer from so that you can move in compassion and pray for me. I have Fibromyalgia, (look it up) it is a daily grind of chronic fatigue, a disorder of sleep and pain. I have Bursitis, inflammation of the Bursa sac over the joints, I have Arthritis in my knees, thumbs, neck, I have a stuck on facet joint in my lower right of my back, I have constant blocked sinus issues, a locked jaw problem, IBS (Look it up) and extremely painful feet. I have great difficulty sleeping on my shoulders and on my sides because of pain. I am sensitive to drugs so cannot take them, and intolerant to anti-inflammatory tablets. I am left with the word of God, as the medical practice said that most of my problems are not curable. The word of God is medicine to my flesh, is active, is alive. When I can I read the word, meditate on the Word, pray about the word, but it is hard because of the fatigue that takes over at the click of a finger and my eyes can no longer focus. I move soon to Eastbourne on the May 10th and with a relentless determination I want the word of God to be my dictator NOT pain. I believe in the power of prayer and ask that you pray for me, I believe God wants to bless my walk, and it is my purpose to share my testimony and be used by God through my testimony. I step out under this test of faith knowing God’s word does not return void, knowing his purpose will be accomplished, and that I must trust God, regardless of my pain and circumstances. I value the prayers of the saints who also have trials and tests of many kinds, and may the blessings of Jesus be with you all. Let us fight the good fight, stand upon the word of God, expect divine intervention, humble ourselves in all things, and love the Lord God with all our heart, soul, strength and mind. The tide of pain may come against me daily, but I am more than a conqueror in Christ Jesus WHO overcame the world and all that was in it. Let my test of faith be complete in Jesus who is the perfecter of my faith, and may God’s will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
