For those of you who are Christian, how has your spouse or SO handled your DX or even your bad days. I thought everything was going better but after the "new Dr " check up (he made me an appointment with his Dr) the SO asked me if I was tired of Dealing with it all. Then told me I can get healed and prayed over. I let him know I've done that, so now I am not sure if He is questioning my faith, since I have not gotten better. How have you and yours handled all of this?
@A MyFibroTeam Member This is a question I have had from non-Christians too. My answer is simply (and I apply this to me) is that Jesus did not heal everyone when he was on this earth. He came to save sinners, and let's face it, sin is the biggest sickness of all human kind. I have been prayed for and I have prayed for others. Although we cannot fathom it there must be a reason why we continue battling, perhaps to trust Him more? I hope this helps and doesn't confuse the situation. The Lord knows your suffering and will give you grace and strength. xxx Sarah
I have gone through so much in my life, I have made my old counselor cry. She is a women that has heard many people's struggles. And although I have been through more than all her clients, I am the highest functioning person (meaning I go on with life). The only reason I survive everyday is through the grace of God. I think that everything had brought me closer to God and made me stronger. I share my stories to inspire because if I went through it and am still able to go on, you can too. I have bad days, question and loathe my pain. But God helps me, so does rest, eating right and doing a million other things. Without God, I don't know where I'd be.
I must first of all state that I divorced my 4th and last husband in Sept 2015. His unwillingness to treat my fibro as a real disease is one cause of the divorce. He claims to be a Christian, I know I am a Christian. I have been told by several people to be prayed for repeatedly, and that someday, God would show His mercy and heal me physically. I try not to let my health get in the way of my journey with my Saviour, and it is hard at times. but, I know He is right next to me all the time, no matter how badly I hurt physically.
I believe that what a lot of people believe in is the health and wealth faith. If you believe you will be healthy and wealthy but that is so not the case. Don't let other people make you think you do not believe because you have this. Yes we will all at one time or another have a hard time with it but our faith is what does keep us going and what gives us peace when we probably wouldn't be able to have that peace otherwise. I'm sorry your SO is making you doubt that but please try not to fall into that trap as it is not the case at all. Prayers and HUGS.
I have found great comfort in my faith. I have never questioned the why me scenario rather sought strength through His word and through prayer. In fact I learn and gain a deeper understanding about my faith on the bad days.
I'm not married either , in that We don't have a piece of paper saying we are but have been together for over five years
Sam is not a Christian and doesn't go to church with me. He has never questioned me on my faith in relation to my condition and is totally supportive of me in my beliefs and in helping me deal with whatever Fibro throws at me.
I like to believe that we were meant to be and that God put us together for a reason.
I don't believe this is my cross to bear but that the cross was bore for me and my salvation and that this is in His plan for me which is why he also 'gave' me Sam
Gentle hugs xx
