  • Turning my life over to God.

    Hello everyone! its been a long time since i have posted anything, but with good reason. I set everything aside for awhile to make a change in my life. There have been some rather bad happenings in my life recently and i needed to do something about them. After almost getting divorced, losing my father to pulmanary fibrosis, and feeling soo vulnerable that i cheated on my husband. I went and did the only other thing i could think of. I asked forgiveness from God for my sins. I have been saved and God is now the center of my life along with my husband and my children. We have reconciled. I got rid of the things that were causing me pain. Even my ic is more under control now than it has been in months. I have learned that anything is possible with god. Let him into your life and what wonders he can do!

        Awesome!
        Kim

        Diagnosed August 2001

        Current IC meds: Elmiron (since 2001), Levaquin (one pill after intercourse to prevent UTIs), Effexor (for depression & anxiety)


        Past IC meds: Amitriptyline (Elavil), Hydroxyzine (Vistaril), Detrol LA, Lexapro (for depression & anxiety, but also helped my IC) (They all helped, but I was able to discontinue them.)

        I've been virtually symptom free and able to eat & drink whatever I'd like for about 8 years now.

        “We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms -- to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.” ~ Viktor Frankl

        “You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you.” ~ Brian Tracy

          You have certainly made the right and most important decision you will ever make in life! I am so happy for you. You now have Someone to walk right by your side whether on a mountain top or in a valley. Your new motto can be, "I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me." angel

            Hi I am totally in agreement with you, I think if you can let go and let God, things are a whole lot easier, I have great faith and I do not know what I would do without it. My faith has got me through a lot of the bad days, has anyone seen the saying about Footprints, it is an excellent piece of reading. I know when I was going through a lot of pain befor being diagnosed last year, I finally said O.K. Lord you are in charge and I felt a lot easier about things, take care everyone, Iris hi angel grouphug
            Today and every day you are loved, so don't be anxious about tomorrow, God will take care of you tomorrow; Live one day at a time.

                grouphug grouphug My mom always told me this and I have a precious moments that says this too. "you can't run away fromGod". He always know where you are and he is ready waiting for you to come back tohim. I always remebered that. Glad that yourlife is back. There is always pain in life and with God it is more bearable and easier to deal with.

                        Hey Carley, that was a great post, I really believe once we open that door and let God in, it is the most awesome thing to happen to us. I know going through last year was hell at times but I have a whole different attitude now about my life and the way I live it, it is really great with God walking beside me through thick and thin, hugs and prayers for all, grouphug grouphug angel Iris

                          Iris,
                          I'm glad you & Jess both liked it. In these troubled times and having a chronic disease we need all the inspiration we can find to help us through. I will be 63 next month and and have found through all my trials & troubles in life that Jesus is faithful and true to His Word. I could have given up many times if I had not known from an early age that I could always trust and depend on Him to get me through. Wishing and praying for everyone to have more and more pain-free days & nights. grouphug
