Hope for those suffering from Lyme Disease

Whatever It Takes

I recently heard a personal trainer say that there are three types of people that he works with. As I heard him list these I was struck that this is also true with healing. So what kind of person are you?

1. I’ll Try

2. I’ll Do My Best

3. I’ll Do Whatever It Takes

My entire life, I’ve been a #3 kind of a person. I’ll Do Whatever It Takes!!!!!!! On this journey with Lyme Disease you must decide for yourself. Decide how hard you will work. Decide whether you’ll stick to a strick diet. Decide whether you have the stuff that heroes are made of.

It won’t be easy. Nothing worth fighting for is. But you have to decide for yourself what plan of action to take. You have to embrace your plan. I have been around the block too many times to know that even if someone says they have a “cure” you will not embrace it. You will keep trying a million other things, especially if the “cure” has any level of difficulty to it.

I’m reading for the umpteeth time, Beyond Our Selves, by Catherine Marshall. This book has been my companion on this journey along with my Bible. Catherine suffered from TB. There was no cure in her day. She discovered a secret. It’s not really a secret, but she discovered how to follow the secret. The secret is in Mark 9:25. Jesus says, “I tell you, you have whatever you ask for, if you only believe first, you will have it.” (paraphrase mine)

FACT, FAITH, FEELINGS. It’s hard to believe when you don’t feel it. And in my opinion it’s especially hard with LD. Since the infection is so seriously in our brains. When the brain is severely inflamed it’s so hard to hold on to the truth. This is where my faith has come in. When I can’t believe, I lay it all before the Lord and allow Him to hold me. To lead me through the valley of the shadow of death. And all through that valley, I’m thanking Him for something I don’t yet have completely…..my healing! Everyday, I thank God for my healing. Because I believe that it will one day appear.

In the mean time, I’ll continue to do WHATEVER IT TAKES.

Won’t you join me? Come on lets do it together….WHATEVER IT TAKES!
