Happy Healing Day to me! 🎉 March 20th will always be a special day in our house (you know, figuratively speaking since we don't have a house...). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
I began #DNRS on March 20, 2017. I was eager, excited, and scared. But mostly eager and scared. Eager to get on with the healing that had every reason to come, scared that health would change me negatively (🤦🏼♀️) and that the program might not work for me (also 🤦🏼♀️).
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
Within the first day or two I noticed the slightest something different. Over the next several weeks the changes were slight but continuous. By April, I was able to start going to church what has been weekly ever since (and what had previously been once every couple months). By May we had our fifth wedding anniversary beach vacation that we'll be talking about the rest of our lives. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
And before I knew it, I was doing all. the. things: cleaning, cooking, and running errands with Daniel. A few months in, I couldn't even refer to myself as sick anymore. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's been a year now. And though at the moment we're remedying the acute issue of secondhand smoke from the apartment I recently fled (which would hurt anyone as much as I was around it), I know that is passing (and P.S. already much improved) and has zero effect on the fact that I. am. healthy. 🙌🏻 We're both battle-worn from the upheaval I've shared about in the last couple posts but always grateful for this new-found health. And there's no way I would have been able to handle this insane upheaval pre-DNRS and actively do my part to help remedy it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you've been thinking about DNRS, freaking do it. Best decision ever. God used it as a very important key for me to escape 6+ years of chronic illness that, for a long time, I thought could not be healed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
Because the hope is real and God is good.
