Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
Living with Menieres’ Disease can be hard and now the doctors say I have Vestibular Migraines along with the MD. One of the most difficult things is getting others to understand what you are experiencing. On the outside I look the same but inside I am totally different. My world at times feels upside down. I have found it doesn’t do me a lot of good to tell others why I can no longer stand for long periods, look up or down, turn sideways quickly, be around loud noises especially music and a crowd of people talking. Lights affect my balance and working on the computer has become very difficult, making me tire out easily.
As I spoke with a lady from my church earlier today we talked about how I had started a new medication called Emgality in the hopes it will help the constant pressure in my head and relief some of the other symptoms I experience on a daily basis. I could tell by her reaction she has no idea what I feel and really has a hard time believing it can be that bad. Honestly, I know it is very hard to comprehend what others feel without experiencing what they go through. I have been guilty of it myself at times. One thing I have found is, don’t ever judge someone by how they look because you have no idea what they are going through in their lives or within their bodies. Looks can be so deceiving in so many different way.
As I sat on my deck reading my bible this morning I thought about how I had felt talking with my friend. I thought about how alone I feel at times, then I heard the eagle in the distance. The same shrill cry I heard on the day I lost my hearing in my right ear. I believe the Lord sent that eagle because He wants me to know I am never alone. He is always with me. I am so thankful for my relationship with my Savior Jesus Christ. I cannot imagine a life without Him in it. My heart goes out to those who doesn’t know Him in a personal relationship. They are missing out on the most wonderful unimaginable experience you could ever know. No person can fill the void He fills because He knows each of us for more than we even know ourselves and His love reaches far beyond anything our mortal minds can comprehend.
I can never thank my Lord Jesus Christ enough for His love and holy presence in my life. I never want to even imagine a life without Him in it. May the Lord bless each of you and may you know that wonderful secure relationship that can only be found in Him and His ever abiding love for you.
Isaiah 41:10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
