Learned today that I have cervical spinal stenosis. What is it? It is where the cervical bones in your neck press into you spinal cord causing your body to have severe pain and to loose mobility of your limes, headaches and Lord knows what else.
I have been battling chronic pain for years due to Degenerative Disc Disease and Arthritis. In the past few years things have changed, more pain and just shear agony. I am not detered by this. There are many people that live with disabilities, some you can see and some you can not. No disability is the same and no one deals with it in the same way. For me, I keep smiling through the pain and sometimes the inability to walk, sit or stand long periods of time. Even sleep is only a vision. I keep smiling because I know Who I serve. But God.
I can not tell you the outcome or that it will all be ok. What I can tell you is that you are not alone. I can tell you that no matter what it is you face, you must keep smiling. If not for you than for others who see and watch you. My mother used to tell me as a child don't go outside just looking any kind of way. Fix yourself up. Comb your hair and iron your clothes because you never know whos watching you. I have learned this. I know that many look up to me, seek out knowledge and wisdom from me and I must always at best be ready to give an account. So with this condition, I am ready. I am ready for the test, the testimony and the praise.
Remember all things do work together for the good of those who love the Lord. His grace is sufficient.
Stay encouraged. I am.
