Our journey began the evening of January 3rd 2019. My husband suddenly developed an excruciating headache, despite four hourly pain-killers, the pain would not ease. Approximately 48 hours later I took him to A&E, after hours of waiting, we were sent away with even more pain-killers and told it was ‘migraine’.
For 3 weeks, my husband did not sleep/eat and lost 2 stones in weight; during this time, we made 6 visits to the hospital, several visits to our GP, numerous 111 calls as well as seeing 2 private doctors. We also arranged our own private MRI to ascertain what was going on.
I know my redeemer lives, I also know my God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. He promised He would never leave us or forsake, or give us more than we can bear.
There were days, weeks, and months that have been extremely difficult, but my faith in God kept me sane and from falling off the edge. I resigned from my job in February not even giving a thought to the consequence of two salaries being abruptly stopped, yes, I panicked that same month when reality kicked in as the bills were still going out.
I was reminded the God that fed the children of Israel in the wilderness, took them across the red sea, is the same God who is feeding us today as well as taking us through our red sea.
No matter how gloomy and hopeless your situation looks, never ever give up. The battle is not yours, but the Lords.
