Its Time For #JustATouchof_J 's Weekly Affirmation. These Light Afflictions!
Hey Kings and Queens! :)
Good Day Everyone!
Are you out there shining bright like the diamond that you're?
Smile :) It looks great on you.
It's time for JustATouchof_J's Affirmation's on my JustATouchofJ Mobile App, Instagram's Facebook's, Tumblr, Twitter, TikTok, Snapchat, Reddit, LinkedIn, and Blackvibes.com just to name a few! ;)
This weeks affirmation comes from
(2 Corinthians 4:17) For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory!
For the past few months I've been really dealing with a few heath issues. Learning how to eat again was already a challenge after my gut health was compromised when I was exposed to high levels of mold toxicity a little over a year ago.
Well, everything was getting so much better the end of last year. January 2022 was extremely promising then, Covid hit my system. I must say that my Covid experience wasn't too bad. During the duration I exercised daily. Continued with my normal life, and still managed to do my 200 push-ups a day! :)
I tested positive and five days later tested negative. I mean I seriously thought I was pretty ok.
Not long after that, I even worked on a few things at the Tyler Perry Studio in Atlanta GA! I was back to doing my thing! Doing what it is that I do baby! ;) Well at least I thought I was.
Anyway after some routine labs, to my surprise, I found out that Covid had destroyed almost all of my good bacteria in my gut. This caused my bad bacteria to soar to very high levels! As a result I became very ill. This was so devastating to me because for over a year I've been working really hard to get better.
Within a few weeks after Covid, I began to have severe food intolerances again. I'm mean I was back to only eating about five things. I suffered from one reaction to the next. I lost 20lbs in about three months. My histamine levels were so high that my increased sense of smell returned. My Skin Crawling aka "internally itchy skin" returned in the worst way too! I had a bad case of Candida that had turned my tongue white as snow. (Aka the Covid Tongue) The inside of my mouth broke out because of the microbial imbalance in my gut microbes. My muscle cramping return to the point where I couldn't walk. And my migraine headache started again! Plus at times I couldn't see. That's to say the least! I was even unable to focus and drive!
I began to wonder why God would let this happen to me. I felt like the crushing was consuming me. After everything I've been through? SMH! I felt like saying.. come on God! I almost died a year ago. (As if He didn't know) LOL! Now this? And Satan himself was definitely trying to use my infliction for his own destruction on my life.
Have you ever felt overwhelmed by something you couldn't control? Even Jesus cried out in Matthew 27, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
Anyway.. I knew better to question Gods Plan for my life. When I think back on it, there was this peacefulness inside of the disappointment. Peacefulness that went along with the reassurance that Gods word said that everything would still be ok. He would never leave me or forsake me. (Deuteronomy 31:16)
I stood on (Jeremiah 29:11) For I know the plans I have for you, "says the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future."
I held on strong to what Matthew 6 say too! To look at how He takes care of the birds of the air, if He takes care of them.. He will take care of me.
Point blank period, I never gave up on myself or God. After all..
He promised to never give up on me! His word says in (2 Corinthians 4:17) "For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory!"
4:18 says, "While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal!"
As I fast forward from January 2022 to May 1st, 2022. The light affliction was really for a moment. "Temporal" I'm so much better now. :)
I got to relax and work on so much of myself and my career has exploded with opportunity after opportunity. I mean blessings after blessing. I'm talking about joy! Unspeakable joy! I feel better than I felt before Covid. Lol!
I fought ever day knowing the battle was the Lords and never gave up. I reminded myself daily that Philippians 4:13 says, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
To sum it all up.. this weeks affirmation is so simple. These are light afflictions! Don't give up on God! Because He won't give up on you. Remember all things are possible to those who believe. And this too shall pass.
Through my testimony you see the manifestation of Gods Glory! I overcame AGAIN! You can overcome too.
This week, take a moment to encourage yourself and someone else to keep going
I love you. And remember, don't give up!
The light affliction which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory!
This is #JustATouchof_J .. Everything else is God. I'm just tryna put it all out there in pieces for you Baby! I love you all! :)
