The Various moments of difficulty I have had to endure in my life could easily leave many beaten, defeated and rather perplexed at the thought of whether or not God has forgotten one. I like to consider myself as a somewhat courageous person who can look at a challenge in the face and tell it not a chance; but that was until a few years ago when I faced health challenges.
I remember laying in that hospital bed for months and I almost felt defeated and numb. I felt like all the emotions one could feel could no longer be felt and just really felt like giving up. I was daily facing unbearable pain and then having to deal with a physical change i didn’t anticipate after undergoing a major operation just added to the feeling of nothingness.
I was between a rock and a hard place, i had come to the end of myself. However, regardless of being in this space and place; something inside so strong just kept saying God I trust you and I trust your ways. I knew that my fleshly attempts were incapable of solving all i was going through and that my only resolve was to let go, move out the way and let God take centre stage that only He is given a platform to work on my behalf and get all the glory.
When I say that I am a walking miracle, I absolutely mean that in every sense of the word and attribute it all to God the Author and the Finisher of my faith. I say this because I am only human and I have no super powers or some type of unique brilliant genetic code. I am a normal person who was almost on a dying bed and went through uncharted waters that even the most Brilliant whose and whose in the medical field found puzzling. BUT GOD! Yes, BUT GOD. He truly is a miracle working GOD, He is a wonder.
Many people given a choice if they were in my position would have thrown in the towel and said God just take me, i give up. However when we humble ourselves and tell God just how much we need Him, there is nothing He cannot do. When he says His grace is sufficient, it really is for you and me.
‘God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.’ 1 Peter 5:5b
