Hey guys! My name is Meagan and I am a part of the BeautifulYou team. I am so excited to be able to share part of my testimony with you guys. Hopefully some of you guys can relate or be encouraged or learn something from it.
So about 2 years ago I got Lyme disease, and it was probably the hardest part of my life. I just remember constantly being in pain and being sick. My pastor prayed over me, my youth pastor prayed over me, my family prayed over me, but I just wasn’t receiving healing. That was really hard to go through, especially when my friends were receiving healing, some from the same illness as myself. This made me start to think that I didn’t have as much faith as everyone else, because it was happening for them, but it just wasn’t happening for me.
God showed me a lot through all of it though, the first thing being that He never leaves us or abandons us.
So after about 2 years, I did get healed from it. It did not happen overnight though; it was very long and hard and difficult. God showed me a lot through all of it though, the first thing being that He never leaves us or abandons us. This actually leads me to the verse that I want to share, which is Isaiah 41:10, “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
As Christians there will be hard and painful times, but God promises to never leave us. This promise definitely came true in my life during this time. The second thing that He showed me is that He can use the process, and He has used the process in my life. If I hadn’t gone through what I went through, my faith wouldn’t be as strong as it is today, and I wouldn’t have been able to have this testimony and relate to others that have been through what I went through.
If I hadn’t gone through what I went through, my faith wouldn’t be as strong as it is today.
So, I want to encourage those of you who are looking for healing, don’t get discouraged, don’t think that your faith isn’t strong enough, and trust God. If He isn’t giving you healing right away, then He has something so much bigger and better planned for you. Thank you so much for letting me share this with you guys, and have a great rest of your day!
