In order to see beyond Hep C, no matter where you’re at, it’s important to remember how God has worked in the past. Your past. Take a look. Look for the light that He gave you. Don’t allow adversity to overshadow God’s light. Look for His fingerprints, His footprints. He was there working for you. He’s there for you right now also. Even if you were in a dark place, He was there. He’s still here.
When adversity comes your way, remember who is right beside you.
I came across a flash from the past in my Hep C treatment journey from June 2012. Yea, two years ago. If you dare to pray, “Lord, show me your footprints,” it’s amazing what you’ll see.
I invite you to look at a snippet from my Hep C treatment back in June 2012, Hep C Treatment Journey Day 61: Adversity-Here’s the Door.
Today is day 61, week 8 of triple therapy treatment for Hepatitis C. What do you do when progress is the name of the game and adversity tries to throw you a curve? Keep focused and keep moving forward.
Be “unswering” (like Hebrews 10:23 talks about). The definition of swerve is to turn abruptly aside from a straight course. So to be “unswering” is to hold fast, keep focused, stay the course, stand firm, overcome adversity.
“Let us hold unswering to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.” Hebrews 10:23
I say this today because Adversity came knocking at my door this morning and delivered a package I did not want. I woke up to realize I was dealing with an additional infection. So I jumped on it like a dog on a bone, called my doctor and described what was going on. My doctor quickly responded, knew what the problem was and immediately called in some new medicine. I am so thankful God provided the help I needed.
Adversity: infection, sores, hair thinning. Shift: New meds (say good-bye infection!), medicine solution/ointment for the sores. For hair thinning, well it’s temporary and I started with lots of hair, besides I love hats. New hair doo, hum, that’s something to ponder.
The One I have faith in is bigger than adversity anyway.
Lord, help me to remember today that even though adversity came calling, I don’t have to go for a ride. I’ll squeeze alittle tighter to your faithful hand. My faith and focus is in you.
