New Year- New Hope

"Those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." -Isaiah 40:31

My new roommate is moving in at just the right time in my life and she actually sent me a little message regarding the above verse. She sent me a video from a minister who is pretty famous. It was a powerful 18 minute segment on HOPE. The man said many people come to him saying "The doctors say there is no cure, there is no hope, nothing we can do etc." He says if you HOPE anything can happen. Anything, even if science proves it otherwise. Anything. This reminded me of the same principle as the book "The Secret" but used God as a focus instead of universe.  I am a huge "science" person. I know what is realistic and what is not, which is partly a problem when dealing with an illness without cure or even treatment for that matter. But my new years resolution is to allow science to take a back seat and start asking the Lord for miracles. Miracles happen everyday in the medical world and they amaze doctors:-)

I chose to "Hope in the Lord" each day last week and what a week I had! Christmas Eve was amazing and my pain was gone. I did not take any of my medications (which is probably not going to happen again for a while) for 4 days! I went out for a birthday, for New Years Eve, and for many dinners and lunches. I was feeling on top of the world! My friend Jessica told me if this continued she would take me to Lourdes, a place where us Catholics believe is a pilgrimage spot for miraculous healings! We cracked up and then talked about how incredibly cool it would be if one day we were successful enough to make that actually happen. All kidding aside- this week reminded me of my old life and I loved it! I was going strong until today actually, but I won't let it disappoint me. I refused to say "I knew this would happen" or to believe that a total healing medical mystery thing could not happen.
