He has given me a new song to sing, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see what he has done and be amazed. They will put their trust in the Lord.
My warrior mummy 💛🙏🏾 Strong and mighty woman. Selfless woman. Faithful woman. Together we walked through the valley of the shadow of death. Not many will understand the cost, but the Lord himself who sees all, delights in your sacrifice.
‘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!
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'.
