Yesterday was my fifth anniversary of being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Of course, signs along the way indicate I’ve had it for much longer. On one hand it was a relief that I wasn’t going crazy and was not being a hypochondriac. On the other hand it was very scary. The more research I did on the illness, the more scary it got. There is no cause and there is no cure. Not a very pretty picture.
Something that helped me work through the grief that I experienced after the diagnosis was to write my book, Fearless. It chronicles my journey of how I was able to gain strength from God through the grief process. Today in my inbox were two email devotionals that I get that talked about the same thing.
The first one is from Max Lucado from his book Anxious for Nothing called God’s Way is Always Best. The next one is from Ravi Zacharias International Ministries called A Slice of Infinity. The article was titled The Gifts of the Magi. I hope they will minister to you as they did to me. They both discuss how and why we can rest peacefully in the arms of God–no mater what!!
