Farewell Diabetes...

Many of you know, some may not, that I was diagnosed with diabetes in August of 2012. However, I choose to believe that God HAS ALREADY HEALED ME and it's just a matter of time before my body manifests that healing. This can be discouraging at times, but I find strength in the Scriptures found in the Bible.

I find strength reading 1 Corinthians 12. Paul, an awesome dude that did amazing things for God, prayed that an affliction would leave him. When it didn't leave him after praying that it would, Paul resolved that in his weakness God is strong. Paul looked to God's sufficiency instead of his own insufficiency. Paul knew that strength comes from God. I have prayed and prayed and prayed for the manifestation of my healing. It hasn't happened YET.

What should I do about that? Continue to believe in FAITH that I AM healed and realize that God is my strength. Sure, I have to do my part spiritually and physically but the rest is up to God. I trust in Him.

Do you see that picture up top? The 140 mg/dl? This is showing that there are 140 milligrams per deciliter of glucose (sugar) found in the blood. This is something that people with diabetes check very often. What does it mean? If this is a reading when they wake up, it's way high. If it is a reading 2 hour after they eat, its perfect!

Truth be told, it can be a little bit of a roller-coaster ride testing glucose in your blood. Glucose numbers are up one minute and down the next. They take a turn and they stay down but all of a sudden go up again. Some days/weeks/months they are steady. Sometimes they go crazy.

Why did I tell you all that?

Because my Glucose levels are looking better and steadier all the time! Thank God!

My fasting (before breakfast) numbers are AMAZING and my after meal ones are mostly where they need to be. This is GREAT news!

I will keep you updated, but if this continues to happen (and prayerfully improves) I could possibly reduce medication or stop some all together!

It's a step in the right direction.

So with that I know that someday I will confidently say:

Farewell Diabietes.
