Welcome to our new series, Faithful Friday's...
This has been a favorite verse of mine lately:
Worship the LORD your God, and his blessing will be on your food and water. I will take away sickness from among. ~Exodus 23:25
Sometimes I am so caught up in the symptoms and feelings that go along with PCOS that I forget to pray and take time with God. A year ago, I was not in my faith. I did not pray, I did not go to fellowship or participate in any part of my faith. Then some personal events happened in my family and I found God. Over the last year, I have been learning as much as I can about God, faith, healing, prayer and such. Until recently, I have never actually prayed that God would heal my body. Now I pray every day that God will heal me, Does that mean that all my PCOS symptoms will go away or that I will be cured of PCOS? No! It means that whatever way God has designed my body to be... will be. I believe that God does not give PCOS to us but I believe that he will not give us anything we can't handle and from every situation there is a purpose and a lesson.
My purpose has been to start Power Up for PCOS and to follow our mission to help others to successfully manage their PCOS. I have also felt a need lately to spread the Word of God to you all. I know from first hand experience that once I found God, the depression got better, I had more joy and peace in my life and some of my symptoms didn't seem so bad. The most important part is that I can cope better without this disease stealing my joy.
I wrote an article way back when I started Power Up for PCOS and it was titled Blessed to Have PCOS. Lots of people thought I was crazy. This is a year later and well I can honestly say that, YES, I am crazy but besides that point, I still feel blessed to have PCOS. Without it, I wouldn't have met all you amazing and passionate women out there. My healing came in the form of my mind and spirit and a touch of my body. It gets better each day.
So, today, I ask you to stop for just a moment and pray to God for a great day with your PCOS and to ask him to guide you in treating your mind, body and spirit.
