The chronic illness does not have to stop your dreams and goals!
😃
I planned to go to university to get my degree in interior design, my life-long passion. Then I got sick. I was unable to attend full-time classes.
💚
But that did not stop me! I found a community college with an interior design program. The school's disability services ensured accommodations for me. My mom drove me to college and I took one class per semester. It was exhausting on my weak body.
💚
Working towards this goal helped me cope with the chronic illness. It gave me something bigger to focus on and look forward to!

I took online classes that were available, but all my design and architecture classes were on campus. The last year, I was feeling a little better. I was able to take two classes per semester, and, towards the end, drive by myself! This was a huge accomplishment!
😄
It took 7 years, but I finally earned my Associate's degree in interior design! Keep working towards your goals! It might take longer and look different than you thought, but it is still possible!

I was healed, but not because I "prayed hard enough."
.
God was not grading me for a word count in my prayers. He was not checking the time, waiting for me to pray long enough, sincere enough, or eloquent enough before deciding to heal me.
.
It was being humbled through prayer that was healing for me. Prayer taught me to be patient in God's timing and listen to His will. I was healed not because of anything I did, but because it was in God's will. He led me to the right treatments and healed my soul in His timing.

Going out and living life is healing, even when it's difficult.

One evening out meant that I would be in bed the entire next day, or even week.

But it was so worth it! I lost all my spoons but gained endurance, joy, and victory!
😃
Don't let the chronic illness stop you from living life. It's okay to enjoy life even if you have a chronic illness. The pain will continue, but don't let it tell you that you are not allowed to enjoy life 😁

@zen0rchid asked me what daily practices I do to trust the Lord.

One thing I do is pray.

For me, prayer is not about what can I get out of it. The intention is not to persuade God to give me what I want.
.
I pray everyday because I desire to be close to God. I pray because I enjoy it. I get to know God's character and I get to be known by God. God reminds me who He created me to be. Through prayer, God humbles me and encourages me to keep moving forward! .
I encourage you to pray everyday. Asking for things is okay, but focus more on building a relationship with God. Tell Him everything, do not hold back! Prayers do not need to be perfect, they need to be honest. God desires your heart, not a showy performance.

@zen0rchid asked me how I trust the Lord to not only survive, but thrive.

It's all God. I did not know if I was going to get better the first 5 years of the illness. I felt weighed down with negativity that I might never get better. Then, God humbled me to worship and praise Him even if I was sick the rest of my life.
.
I could still have a life of peace and joy through the illness because God is still good even when I don't feel good. I could lean on God's goodness!
.
I felt like Daniel's friends who faced the fiery furnance for not bowing down to evil. They declared that God was able to deliver them from the fire, but even if He didn't, they would still only worship God. God ended up saving them! (Daniel 3:17-18)
.
I believed God could heal me, but even He didn't, I would still worship Him the rest of my life, because He is good! God's goodness is not determined by or dependent on my life circumstances. My life is life, and God is God.
.
Five years into the illness, I felt God calling me to be healed. I ran towards that calling. I made it my determined goal in life to get better, no matter what.
.
Later, I had clear confirmation that I would be completely healed. If God says it will happen, then absolutely nothing can stop it. Even when I felt I was not going to make it, I still had to trust in God's authority. God reminded me that He still loves me even when I'm facing challenging situations. Five years later, I am finally healed!

At my worst, I did not leave the house for months. Every little activity was exhausting. Sometimes, laying down in my bed, I could not move without experiencing unbearable pain and nausea. I also had anxiety and cried frequently. My heart felt like it was on overdrive just trying to keep me alive. My symptoms continued for 10 years.
.
In situations like this, you have two choices: give up on life or keep moving forward.
.
I decided to keep moving forward. And I had to make that desicion every single day.

After 10 years, I feel healthy and peaceful! I no longer experience symptoms and I have grown so much because of the chronic illness.
😃
Keep moving forward, no matter what! .

Doctors told me I might never recover...but God called me to be healed!
I refused to believe those doctors and ran towards God.
😃
I was determined to get better from Lyme Disease and POTS, no matter what! I would fight for my health and search for solutions, even if it took the rest of my life. God led me to the right doctors and right treatments as He healed my soul.

After 10 years, I am no longer sick! Hold onto God's hope, keep moving forward, and do not ever give up!
