Surviving Tribulations

Surviving Tribulations

There was a theme of a story that began to brew in my mind…of a girl and her family overcoming a tribulation in life. The tribulation was tough but I was getting excited about the end result…and how they overcame. Then God’s words hit me…is it not the same with reality? Have I not promised you a greater life no matter what circumstances come your way?
“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6

Do I not promise you the best kind of ending there is? Eternal life that you may live in me forever? “And this is the promise that he made to us—eternal life.” 1 John 2:25

The path and gate are narrow…have hope and faith. “Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many.” Matt. 7:13
“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1

Hope in Me and I will be with you amongst the struggles, among the temptations, and among the tribulations.”For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin.” Hebrews 4:15
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11
“In all your ways submit to him and He will make your paths straight.” Prov. 3:6
—————————————————————————————————

No matter how small and feeble your faith may currently seem like to you, you still have faith! God has given us each an amount of faith we need! “…God has dealt to every man the measure of faith.” Romans 12:3
Just think of the faith the size of a mustard seed being able to move mountains! “He said to them, ‘Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, Move from here to there, and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.’” Matthew 17:20
God doesn’t promise bad things won’t happen to us…but He does promise to be there for us among these trying times. “For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, ‘Do not fear, I will help you.” Isaiah 41:13

If you are striving for Christ in a dark day/month/year and feel like He is far away, remember that God is not a feeling or emotion of His knee-shaking presence (at times) but the belief of the heart. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.” Prov. 3:5
“Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.” James 1:2-4
“And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.” 1 Peter 5:10

The Journey I am Currently On

The Journey I am Currently On

In the previous blog posts I have been writing of my past health journey, but now I am going to write about what I am currently doing and, who knows, maybe I will go back and reminisce about the past… 🙂

Right now, at this VERY moment, I am on a health program called, “Nutritional Balancing.” Nutritional Balancing goes by a hair analysis test to see what toxic metals/toxins are in your body and what organs are stressed (this is cool, right? No painful blood tests for me). Then you will be given supplements to support your organs/glands and there are detoxification measures that will help support your body while getting rid of the toxic nastiness and replace the heavy metals with minerals (Sauna, foot reflexology, etc. read more here: nutritional balancing info. OH! I cannot forget one of the MOST important part of this program… THE DIET! Yes, food is very important on “NB.” The diet should be 70-80% vegetables with 3-5 oz. of meat, 4 oz. raw dairy (if you can handle dairy), and 10% whole grains (although I cannot do grains often due to it feeding the bad bacteria which is overly prominent in my body). If you would like to try the “free program” to see what it is like, go to the following: free program.

I have been on this program for almost a year! My body/health improvements are as follows:
-new hair growth (my hair was coming out in handfuls before NB)
-overall body swelling is down!!! My jean size would fluctuate from a size 7 to a size 12.
-the painful sores on my back are gone! 😀 Within 4-5 months, the painful sores disappeared.
-I can think more clearly! I was VERY forgetful and had poor concentration after my wisdom teeth extractions, but this rarely happens now as I detox the metals cause the “brain fog.” Do you suffer from brain fog and poor concentration? Check out the info on brain fog here: brain fog.
-Some of my food allergies are GONE! I can now have corn, asparagus, and lamb!
-I have more energy! I can read, crochet, knit, play the accordion, go for walks, due archery, work in my veggie garden, and drive myself places. 🙂 These are things that I didn’t think I would ever be able to do again…
-My skin is more vibrant and barely has any acne (I used to have severe acne)
-My sugar-tolerance is improving (I can have an occasional apple which used to make me sick).

There are many things that I could write about Nutritional Balancing and I will give more info on this program in the future…but for now I will leave a link to Dr. Wilson’s website… (one of the dudes that is behind this awesomeness).

A Little Blessed Moment…

A Little Blessed Moment…

I just wanted to share my Facebook post with everyone because I am bursting with happiness. ☺️

I am so happy right now! There was a time where I thought my body would never heal and I would continue to go down the spiral of ill health. There was a time where I thought I couldn’t hear God’s voice in the prison that was my body… Now, as I look back…I can see where God left His fingerprints on every single detail of my life. His love just stuns me and puts me on my knees.
Now, that I am healing, I am able to crochet/knitt/craft and earn money by doing so. I never thought that I would even be able to pick up a crochet hook again, let alone earn money (I’ve had to rely on my wonderful parents these past 3 years). Being able to receive and not give back has been a humbling experience and I am honored that God allowed me to go through this journey. God gave His Son-not asking for anything in return except the ACCEPTANCE of Jesus into our hearts. Wow. No words come to my mouth that speak the depths that I feel right now.
Thank you to everyone who has prayed for me these past years. My heart is overjoyed!
“5Those who sow in tears shall reap with joyful shouting. 6He who goes to and fro weeping, carrying his bag of seed, Shall indeed come again with a shout of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.” Psalm 126:5,6
The past tears of sorrow and pain are gone from carrying my “bag of seed,” and now I am reaping the harvest of “sheaves.”
Can I sow in tears of happiness? Because I’m afraid that I will freak out my parents if I start doing the “joyful shouting.” 😝
