From: Developing Your Destiny - Episode 3
I have difficulty living healed of m.s.
I know how that feels. The truth that sets me free is that I live in Jesus above all else. He has the pre-eminence. I spend my time with Him. I talk to Him about everything. My Hope and Expectation is in Him.
I have a life threatening condition. I also have a crafted prayer that The Holy Spirit and I wrote together, which I love praying daily. I also have an agreement with God that if He has not healed me by 10am then He has to be my Keeper for the rest of the day!
Everyday I start afresh because I have that permission and that right in Jesus.
I don't carry any negative over into the next day. I don't accumulate stress. I don't allow negativity any room in my mind or heart. The Holy Spirit has taught me to be relentless about the mind of Christ.
Most days I manage quite well; some days are glorious. On the really bad days, The Comforter comes. Those days are often marked by lots of laughter and worship, or by high points of wisdom and revelation. In the fellowship of His sufferings, He weeps with those who weep.
I love my life. I plan for the future with the Lord; but I live with Him one day at a time; and I start that day fresh and excited....just as He does with me. It's a process.
It took me a while to get here. I learned to enjoy the journey; and now I love my day to day life with Jesus and my beautiful Theresa.
You may find it helpful to listen to my answer to the question: "How do you stay connected to the Fruit of the Spirit in times of physical pain?" ...where I talk more about this. It's Episode 6 of the Fruit of the Spirit series, titled Q&A with Graham.

When first diagnosed my sister got me a subscription to the m.s. magazine, m.s. focus. I wanted to focus on God healing me, nothing else. When I knew God said to me I would get no worse but, see though slow amd small areas of worsening I find myself in battle mode....
...I still find myself fighting negativity, some I win, with the help of scripture (Jesus), some take longer, and some I must have lost. I know God is for me, He has never left me, there is a loving purpose.
The God who is Unchangeable is also The One who is with us always and is the Truest person ever.
Find The One thing about His Nature that thrills you and claim it for yourself. Let it become your Rock; Fortress; High Tower and your great expectation. Let the storm from the enemy break itself on that Rock.
Let the Fortress be your place of constant victory.
Let the High Tower become your abode of safety and laughter. May your expectation of God become your elevation in every life circumstance.
