About pastor Mike
I am entering my 7th year with MS, it took a while to get the dx. but I finally did. I can tell you this about my experience and that it is, MS does not have an easy ANYTHING, not an easy dx, no easy treatment, no easy acceptance by other providers at times and not easy on family. This is what I do know. I serve a great God who loves me and walks with me step by step no matter how I take that step He is with me. This is a great forum for all MS'ers to voice themselves, get encouragement and even start some friendships. Share, be honest and receive all that this site can offer. Blessings to you.
As is the first part, I encourage all to share so far be it from me to not practice what I preach. My MS is progressing and at times I battle inside my own head on how I want MS to look in my life. At first the thought of using a cane and crutches were out of the question, now I embrace them when I am tired. I thought I would NEVER use a motorized chair, now I miss when I don't have mine. And just recently, I never thought I would have any bladder issues except maybe an occasional UTI, I awoke to a wet bed!! HORRIFYING!! My faith in my God is strong and true but even I have to wonder "why?", what is the purpose? I then force myself to reflect on what serving God and NOT myself really means. Am I here just for me? Does my God have a plan for me? And as I walk through these questions and others God always puts a person or a situation in my life to gently remind me that He loves me and that I will get through this. I believe that and I hope while you read this and think about what you are going through that you can find some strength and encouragement to CARRY ON, to PRESS ON and bring glory to your God through your testimony and actions.
Blessings to you!!!
