One year ago today on March 10,2015....
I was immediately admitted to the hospital in Kenya. A year ago today, I never would have imagined still being here on this earth.I still can't believe that I experienced all that I did. ONLY BY GOD'S GRACE. My eternal gratitude to HIM can never be expressed through words, for getting me through some really dark days. When I posted my last two blogs I was still struggling with some serious anxiety.
A lot of the medicines that were used to heal my body of the malaria really caused a lot of uncertainty, doubt, and worry. I was not thinking straight and could not quite grasp the concepts of reality.
However, here I am a year later, better than I ever thought I would be, but yet SO humbled by God's goodness and faithfulness to me during this time and all the time. My anxiety levels are completely gone. I obviously still have my struggles of worry at times. And yes, I still carry some fears with me that are somewhat unreasonable (such as hippos haha) but again I know that my God is bigger than any of that and HE holds me in HIS hands through life and eventually death. MY GOD IS EVERYTHING TO ME. He has been with me through it all and for that I will forever be thankful. I have been given a brand new perspective and hope for the future. I am thankful to all of you who have continually prayed for me. TO GOD BE THE GLORY.
Psalms 73:25-26, "Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire beside you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever."
In this blog there a few pictures that I have never shared before on social media of me in the hospital in Nairobi. I never thought I would get to the point that I could even look at the photos without anxiety and pain but again God's grace has brought me through.
Let us always to remember to keep Christ as our center and live in light of eternity.
