I woke up not knowing whether I still felt super achy after my first Avonex injection or whether it was just my normal self (I usually feel body aches much like a flu).   Got up and went to church and managed to focus through most of the sermon.  After the service was over, a couple came and prayed for me.  It was refreshing.

Disabilities are difficult. When you first get diagnosed, many people surround you and support you, but as the disability continues and/or worsens, many do not know what to do or how to respond and often avoid you.  A lot of times it's just that they feel uncomfortable, and it's easier to avoid you rather than to feel awkward in conversation.  It’s been quite some time since anyone has offered to come and pray for me.   I struggle so much with faith, as I feel so defeated.  At this point it needs to be the faith of others to pray for what I can only remotely dream of.  


 


Song Lyrics

This is not how it should be
This is not how it could be
This is how it is
And our God is in control

This is not how it will be
When we finally will see
We'll see with our own eyes
He was always in control

And we'll sing holy, holy, holy is our God
And we will finally really understand what it means
So we'll sing holy, holy, holy is our God
While we're waiting for that day

This is not where we planned to be
When we started this journey
But this is where we are
And our God is in control

Though this first taste is bitter
There will be sweetness forever
When we finally taste and see
That our God is in control


And we'll sing holy, holy, holy is our God
And we will finally really understand what it means
So we'll sing holy, holy, holy is our God
While we're waiting for that day

We're waiting for that day
We'll keep on waiting for that day
And we will rise
Our God is in control

(Holy, holy, holy) x2

Our God is in control

(Holy, holy, holy)

Our God is in control

(Holy, holy, holy)

    I'm praying for you every day, every night, always,I'm in prayer for you and all of us with MS. Even when I feel like I'm drowning,
    I won't give up. Our heavenly Father won't give up on us or leave us, ever. This is so frustrating because there "seems" to be no end. But God is faithful.

    Psalm139:4-5
    Even before a word is on my tongue,
    Lord,you know it all. Behind and before you encircle me and rest your hand upon me.
    God bless!!

    I am so glad you are up and around. I was concerned not reading your blog lately. Life is a strange thing, isn't it? We think we can't go on, but all of a sudden, find the strength to continue. Whether it's our kids, bowling, friends or just pizza. Hang in there - you have alot of fight left in you.
