Charis our two year old daughter was un well. They misdiagnosed her case ,this kept her in so much pain. She took her first doze and there was no improvement.I then decided to check on a senior peadatrician who in alarm said they were treating a different condition.
By the time I was checking on this pead , her condition was bad.She had sores in her mouth , throat and she couldn’t swallow anything.She was on IVs antibiotics because of her oral condition.
At that moment as I held her sponging her, things not changing I thought to myself what if she had got an infection from someone?The more I thought about it, the more it built up in my mind.The signs of that infection became more visible every time I thought she could have been infected. Anger built up with in me, guilt for not always staying home.Thinking if i was home she wouldnt have been infected as if she was anyway. The bells rung loud in my ears.I got a certain resentment towards the suspect in my mind.
This was getting more serious and eating me up and I decided to share with one of my discipling leaders.I told her how I felt.Ofcourse it was a lie that I had believed.
As I talked to her i realised how much I had believed this lie and how it was eating me up. My friends in such a time really helped me undo the lie I had believed.
It was such a relief to my mind to know I had given room to a lie, and here I was without Peace .
Angela thank you for this verse that time.It came in so handy.It was an assurance.
And the Lord will take away from you all sickness, and will afflict you with none of the terrible diseases of Egypt which you have known…
_Deuteronomy 7:15 NKJV_
Thank you Angela Okullo, Berna Amadoi,and Jean K for encouraging me when Charis was unwell.The alpha MC , you are incredible.
What is it you have believed? The situation stares at you and it looks like it is the ultimate truth.What is it that has taken your peace, you have lost sleep because of this ,you even cry yourself to sleep. I want to encourage you to fix your eyes on Jesus.
I have learnt to trust the Lord regardless of the situation.Trusting even when you are not sure of the facts.
What is it that has troubled you? Choose to believe the report of the Lord!His report is so different.It says you are healed, you are free, and you are victorious.You can undo the lie that has held you back.
