It’s the easiest thing in the world to play the victim role. Allowing everyone to take care of us because of whatever reason is totally justifiable in our minds and others easily convince us of it
if we aren’t yet at that point. We must NEVER allow ourselves to stay in this victim-mode!
You see, when something happens to us it’s our chance to prove to others how great and powerful
our GOD is. On our own strength, with our own effort, we would never be able to accomplish anything, but when we force ourselves to do the things we believe we can’t, remembering that it’s an OPPORTUNITY to radiate God’s
power and might - wow! We start seeing our suffering in a totally different light. That is why we can rejoice in our suffering because we realize at those times that truly God’s grace is enough for us.
When we get any type of dis-ease it’s our chance to turn away (REPENT) from the bad habits and embrace the good ones. That is what playing an active role in our healing and recovery is all about. It’s NOT about going to
the doctor on a consistent basis, getting pill after pill, or allow ourselves to willingly be placed under the knife or any other surgical procedure . It’s NOT about being brave enough to endure all the pain and suffering we get from going through chemo
and radiation treatments. The reason cancer comes back, for example, is because our bodies are STILL very nutrient deficient at the end of the therapy and our bodies are now even more toxic than they were before. Now we need to recover from the treatments!
Have you ever noticed that those with cancer have “nutrient-deficiency” as their cause of death on their death certificate? It’s so important to focus on filing our bodies with nutrients, getting rid of all toxins invading our body, and embracing
other healthy habits like daily exercise and sleeping enough hours each night.
Making a U-Turn is usually not easy. We are totally set in our ways and it may even appear that we are being asked
to give up all that is good in life; we can’t imagine ourselves not being able to do something or consume something that we currently love so much. However, when we fully embrace a renewed commitment to a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE, we can count on God being
there to not only empower us every step of the way, but to also be there for us to strengthen us when we feel like throwing in the towel.
Playing an active role in our healing and recovery is all about
embracing God’s way of taking care of our bodies, minds and souls. It’s all about asking God to help us stay away from the things that are slowly (or quickly)) killing us, and asking him to help us not to get stuck on quick-fixes that
later on end up causing even more problems (whether we realize that those quick-fixes were the cause of it or not).
Regardless of how hard it is to make a U-Turn in your life, prayerfully ask God to
help you to do that. As years go by, you will be so grateful that you made that decision. Surround yourself with people that will encourage you in this decision, and most of all, draw closer to God every day for HE will become the source of your strength,
peace and joy along your journey towards health. We DO NOT have to wait until we get to heaven for our health to be restored, nor to be joyful at all times. We have God’s presence even here on earth! That is what it means when Jesus
said He would not leave us orphans - He would send a helper as our constant guide and companion: the Holy Spirit.
