Finding Peace in Adversity

“If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:31-32 There is such freedom in knowing and following Jesus Christ. He is the Magnificent Redeemer, Lord, and Savior who walks closely with all who cherish His Holy Name providing respite and practical help on a daily basis. Jesus truly is The Light for all striving people who are willing to walk away from sin and darkness to follow Him. A lighthouse for the lost who traverse dark seas, and all who call upon His name.

In the past getting these treatments was a tremendous burden for me to endure. However, these days, I am feeling extremely blest that medical science has a remedy. Though it is not a cure, I recognize what a great help these treatments provide.   Without them, my respiratory muscles are very weak making it difficult to breathe requiring a Bipap respirator 16-17 hours per day; my speech is garbled, I am very unsteady on my feet, have double vision, etc… With these treatments, I am able to live a full life only needing the respirator 12-13 hours per day and a walker.  Yes, I am truly blest to be able to have such a powerful remedy...
