8 years ago I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Disease, and although I am on medication for it, I still suffer from major fatigue. Doctors say there is no cure.
I have changed my diet, I am on supplements, I watch my words, I began retraining my thoughts, I began renewing my mind and spent hours praying for my healing. I have done everything humanly possible to give my body the best chance of healing.
After a while, you tire of waiting, hoping and get discouraged.
This last month I have battled with the most severe fatigue. I am weary. I had given up hope. I convinced myself that this is the way my life will always be and I may as well just accept that. I told myself God doesn't heal everyone. I was tired of being disappointed.
And then one word changed it all......
Tired, sleep deprived and after a full day of church, driving Mighty Prince Warrior to the airport, shopping for birthday presents and a children's birthday party, no one would have blamed me for staying home. But there was an Encounter Night on at church. A night of extended worship. A night of opportunities for prayer. A night to allow His Holy Spirit to move. I dragged my weary body along - expectant.
And then it happened.....straight from the throne room of God - one word - BELIEVE! A pastor singled me out and told me that God wanted me to believe. Tears streamed down my face and something rose within me that I hadn't felt for a long time - renewed FAITH for my healing!
