I thank God for the trials and tribulations . They didn't break me,they only made me stronger. Several years ago I while in the military , I started having very sharp pains in abdomen, diarrhea, and vomiting . I found out that I had Crohn's Disease . Crohn's disease, also known as regional enteritis, is a type of inflammatory bowel disease that may affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract from mouth to anus, causing a wide variety of symptoms. It primarily causes abdominal pain, diarrhea (which may be bloody if inflammation is at its worst), vomiting (can be continuous), or weight loss.
For 3 years I was in and out of the hospital because of Crohn's flare ups. While going through all this I also had a seizure and was in the hospital for three weeks. The devil was trying to kill me ,BUT GOD...
Through my physical pain I was going through spiritually. I was wondering where God was and why would he allow me to go through this pain. God's answer to me was that I need to get the glory out of your life. I was upset @ God because my dream was destroyed by an illness that (at that time) I wanted God to heal me so I could go back to the military.
God allowed me to bump my head until I caused myself to be homeless. I was in a shelter and for some reason or another I still was acting crazy so God allowed me to get sick to the point that I was hospital. My turning point was when I was in a rehab center. I saw people older than me dying daily. I made a choice to change my life.
Now, I use the condition as a testimony. I know... How is my condition a testimony ? Despite my condition im still here. Crohn's is in remission . I thank God each and everyday for my health . I have a wife and three kid, roof over my head, transportation,and a church that loves us. I'm blessed beyond blessed.
I thank God for him allowing me to be the vessel that he uses to let somebody know that regardless of what you're going through God will be there through it all. Despite what the doctor says I know that I'm healed by the power of God. BE BLESSED :)
