‘EVEN THOUGH I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil’. - Psalm 23:4 The conjunction ‘even though’ makes me understand that the valley is an expected part of the Christian walk. The word ‘walk’ makes me understand I need not run through this valley experience and I dare not stand still. The only thing I need to do is walk WITH God. And if I ever felt compelled to 'run', it would only be into the name of JESUS (Proverbs 18:10). Finally, the word ‘through’ is a word of hope in this verse. ‘Through’ tells me that the valley is not its not a permanent experience.
This testimony points to Jesus. No matter what the healing process looks like, I trust that because of His finished work on the cross, that this too has an end. There is Healing in His wounds! There is unfathomable Beauty In His Pain before any Beauty In The Beast of human pain.
Sometimes when you’re praying you have to show the devil that you are madder than him! Crazy faith = Crazy results!
Sometimes God will let you go through to let you know that He IS! I pray that this testimony will spin the world and that many will come to the revelation of God through this. May this testimony serve as a reminder that God is able to pull you out from the depths of death and that He is still Jehovah Rapha — the Lord who Heals.
What I put out there is open for public consumption, scrutiny and sharing. My experience was awful, devastating and incredibly raw. The images of my experience with this rare Stevens-Johnson syndrome are raw, vulnerable and graphic.
We are told to reject suffering and pain, but what do you do when you are confronted with the prospect of death? This devotional draws you into Kanayo's testimony of battling a ‘one in a million’ serious illness called Stevens-Johnson Syndrome. We journey with her suffering, healing, finding beauty in the beast of pain and ultimately learn how to suffer 'well'.
