Never Once Did We Ever Walk Alone

Our walk with God

From the diagnosis until now…..

on September 27, 2011

Well it seems like a good time for another update from me and Sarah. There has been some big events since our last post; it was my 25th Birthday this Friday just gone as well as our good friend David’s 30th on the same day! It was also a great honour and privilege to be a groomsman to my friend Daniel on Saturday for his wedding to a wonderful lady named Pearl. It was fantastic to see two people honour God in marriage and for our Church to rally around them and bless them with a beautiful wedding day. Daniel has an awesome testimony about God’s abundant grace and healing hear it on the Bexleyheath Community Church website by clicking here

Sarah is doing incredibly well at the moment but still struggling with the associated fatigue so please, please keep praying. We have now received more information about the drug trial that Sarah is eligible for (according to initial requirements). It is a very difficult decision for both of us and the thought of taking any sort of medication is difficult for Sarah. Even with my support it is hard for her not to feel alone in taking it. Sarah is suffering with random twitches whilst doing things like eating etc, which can cause some embarrassment for her if she drops her cutlery for seemingly no reason. We pray that God continues His healing work in her until this is rectified. We need to seek God thoroughly in making this decision and trust that sometimes the answer to prayer is the response to the need. Please continue to pray with us as we go through this time as your support has been like a rod to our backs keeping us upright and steadfast.

Now I would like to share with you about our wonderful God honoring church. I have alluded to them on many occasions whilst writing this blog but I feel it incredibly important to publicly give thanks for their support of us and our family. Our church like any good God glorifying church have rallied around us during this time and clothed us in prayer and support. I do not believe that we could ever truly express our thanks and gratitude for what you have all done for us. To those of you reading this who do not come to our church, why not pop along one Sunday and see why we could not be in a better place to be dealing with this situation

Jesus came to us as God incarnate to die for our sins, be raised to life by the Father and  bodily ascend to Heaven to reign with Him, forever interceding on our behalf. By bringing Gods Kingdom on earth he established the church to be His bride and outwork His power through the Holy Spirit so people could be gathered to His mighty name. God knew as Christians that we should not be ‘lone rangers’ and should find a place in the body of Christ (the church). As it says in 1 Corinthians 12:27  “Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it.” If we also look at John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life” we can see that God’s promise is that if we come to know Jesus as our Lord and Savior we will live for eternity worshiping the living God and will be able to take our place in His church. If we were not safe in this assurance we would not be able to cope with most parts of our lives let alone something as life changing as MS.

whoever you are, whatever race you are, whatever walk of life you are from, whatever beliefs you hold or whatever life you have lived Jesus loves you and gave up His life for you so that you may know God the Father as intimately as Him. There are no promises of an easy life, money or perfect health but there is an assurance that your life is in His hands and whatever happens God is sovereign and will outwork His great plans for you.

God bless,

James & Sarah
