of us knows there must be balance between God, nature, and
technology in order to heal our bodies. In our search for that balance,
we may take many roads. In our search for healing, we may
find that our personal definition of "healing" may
change. We discover that there are many forms of health....And,
losing physical abilities does not discount our capacity to be
spiritually healthy, nor does it exclude opportunities for our
futures or require us to be less than who we really are.
One thing is certain: Developing an incurable, chronic illness will change your life. You will never be the same. I know that I am not. And, even though my body is not better than ever, I know that I am better than I ever have been! In losing my career, my hobbies, and my assumed identity all due to illness, I found much more.... I found my true self, and peace with God. I discovered the redemptive value of suffering and my purpose in God's plan.
Where to turn and Who can help....
