Healing of a Chronic Illness
Summary: How wonderful God is to those that believe and are
patient for His answers. You will be rewarded in ways only God
could have imagined.
Keywords: God's Intervention, Healing, Chronic Illness, Answered
I suffered with chronic headaches (daily), some
very extreme that I was forced to stay in bed for three to four days at
a time. This fact forced me to retire early from my existing job six
months prior to my thirty year anniversary. After twenty-nine years and
six months of service to the VA Medical Center, I was literally drummed
out due to my illness and frequent absences. It was done in a very
uncompassionate manner. I was dejected and miserable due to this fact
and the fact that my headaches continued daily.
I was eventually called by a Priest friend that I
had graduated from high school with regarding a potential job working at
the Chancery for our Diocese. I was so excited and I had been having a
good run with my headaches, probably due to total inactivity, so I said
yes! I was interviewed and was accepted to a position that I am thrilled
with having. I was also accepted by the Bishop as an Aspirant for the
permanent diaconate program. Life was great!
Despite these tribulations, I was still plagued
with the headaches that seem to come back with vengeance. I was absent
for half a month three months in a row and knew I would end up losing
this job as well. I was miserable and only wanted to be productive and
provide for my family.
I had seen some "world renowned" physicians to no
avail. While working one day I was discussing my headaches with a
wonderful lady that also works at the diocese and she shared her
father's story with me that was very similar to mine. She told me about
[a clinic*] and how wonderful the results were for her father. I had new
hope and called to make an appointment which I was given in short order.
I reported for my appointment on a Friday and the doctor wanted to admit
me that Sunday to begin treatment. I returned on Monday and was admitted
and started the treatment. I was hospitalized for nine days.
I have been home now for two weeks and have had
but one headache since my treatment. I know where did God intervene? I
know that it was God that directed to the position at the diocese. I
know that it was God that placed me in the presence of the lovely lady
that told me the story about her father and the [clinic*]. And I can not
tell you how supportive, compassionate and encouraging the Bishop and
the Moderator of Curia were in dealing with this crisis.
Only God could have provided for me in the manner
that He has. Only God has made it possible for me to possibly become a
Deacon in His Church and be enriched so abundantly by learning about my
faith! I ask that all that suffer please continue to pray for God's
intervention, He will answer your prayers. I had my headaches for eight
years but continued to pray and ask others to do so for me and He did
answer my prayers. Be patient, God will hear you and answer your prayers
too. Give Glory to God for my healing!
