Trying to Find Answers

 
This is one of my favorite scriptures.
I have been having stomach problems for the past year now and it just feels like it will never end.
I have been sick..with who knows what. My stomach hurts constantly, especially in the morning when I wake up. It feels like it's inflammed. No matter what I eat, it hurts after. Even if I eat something healthy like a salad or a turkey sandwich. Hurts. I also have back aches and sometimes my bones and my body feel really weak. I have received no answers as to what it might be and I'm on doctor #4. After numerous tests (blood work, at home tests and an ultrasound) and doctor visits...Nothing. Negative.

 So... this is the (-) side of the situation. 

There is also a (+) side of this situation.

This life that I have been given is a beautiful one. I have so much to be blessed and grateful for. I have so many people around me that love and care. I have so many prayers that have been answered time and time again that I am so grateful for. Yes I am faced with feeling sick day in and day out, and yes I haven't had any results come back as to what it is.

 That's alright.

Our God is a great God. He is a perfect God. He is merciful and  loves me with a love that is so infinite that I cannot even comprehend. I I know that God has a purpose for everything. I have grown so much during this trial and have become even closer to my Heavenly Father as I have been relying and trusting in Him.
But..because of my hope, faith, love and trust for my Heavenly Father,  He has strengthened me, guided me, and helped me get through each day as it comes.

"I am happy and cheerful with whatever situation it may be"

Kimberly! Thank you so much for sharing this! What a great witness you are to people through your words. I am in a trial as well... more than one... I know there is a spiritual battle going on over me. I know my faith is being tested... it continues to be over the 23 years I've lived... but I know that God is powerful, that he has a plan, that even though I don't see Him or hear Him sometimes I know with a unshakeable certainty that He is there He is doing something He is constantly saying/sharing something. Sometimes it is me that is not listening or seeing it. I will be praying for you that God will heal you. That God may unmask any unanswered questions you may have. I will be praying for you daily. Thank you for sharing this. God bless you.

First of all I am sorry you have not been feeling well, i know first hand how hard it is when our health is robbed...you could maybe check out my ENDURE section of my blog...
Have you had an Endoscopy? They would be able to look at your stomach and the lining etc... might get some answers there...

I do know that our fleshly bodies are just so fallen that we will suffer; we are so imperfect in so many ways, but physically especially...our bodies are made to be the way God intended, but since the Garden, that just isn't the case. Hold fast, and keep your eyes on the prize and stay in the race and fight the good fight as Paul did.
You picked the perfect verse Proverbs 3:5-6

Keep us updated!!!

Amber,
You are a doll! Thank you for your sweet comments. It really means a lot.
I am so sorry to hear of some of the trials that you are facing also. He is there and loves you more than you can even fathom and He does have a plan for you life. You are strong and beautiful Amber. As long as you have Him on your side, you can get through ANYTHING. Kneel more, read more, and trust in Him more and I promise you will find the answers you are looking for.
I will keep you in my prayers.

Gina,
Thank you for your comment.
I will def. check out your Endure section on your blog.
I went and had a CT Scan and it came back negative. The doctors next recommendation was to go to a GI specialist and get that procedure.

I love your last words. Thank you.
I am a fighter and I am not giving up or giving in no matter what.
God knows all and I trust Him.

Thank you again.

Hi there! I saw you comment on Tiffany's journal about your nausea. I have had the SAME problem for almost two years now. After numerous doctor's visits and tests (literally every single test in the gastroenterology field), I saw a neurologist - an excellent one at the Cleveland Clinic. I have something called occipital neuralgia, but there are numerous neurological conditions that cause chronic nausea. I've been trying to spread the word ever since. If you (or anyone else) have any questions about my journey or what kind of doctors to look for, please email me! My email is amason@oberlin.edu.
I really hope your tummy starts feeling better. Please see a neurologist if you haven't already! I'll be praying for you!
