Ten Years of Antibiotics
Since my battle with this chronic lymphoma began ten years ago, I have faced a discouraging sequence of events every time I caught a common cold: sore-throat, runny nose, cough, lung infection, bronchitis, trip to the doctor, ten-day regimen of nuclear antibiotics…three weeks later…praying that I don’t catch another cold.
But Not This Time!
Two weeks ago I noticed my throat feeling scratchy during the Sunday sermon. “Oh no, here we go again.”
Then the runny nose…
I got better.
Without a trip to the doctor.
Without spending the usual couple of hundred dollars in deductibles.
I just got better. My doctors tell me my immune system is getting stronger.
First Time in Ten Years!
I’m telling you this story to encourage you. I especially want to encourage those of you dealing with chronic and discouraging health problems.
You never know what God might do.
So keep doing what your doctors say, and keep asking the Lord to deliver you from this malaise.
You never know.
Ten years later, you may be rejoicing in His answer as much as I am today.
