The Gift of Diabetes - The Gift of the Body of Christ

Please watch this video and allow the Holy Spirit to encourage, refresh and teach you as you listen to our brother Ray, lovingly, compassionately and boldly share the message of eternal salvation through trust in Jesus Christ alone.




Hello dearest sisters! I know I've been "away" for a while, but I think I've finally come to a place of acceptance with all my health issues! And here's the VERY short version: I've been diagnosed with:

  • pre-diabetes
  • reactive hypoglycemia or hypoglycemia (which usually turns into diabetes type 1)
  • high blood pressure
  • and a host of other issues due to this
  • there's nothing anyone can do but wait for me to get full blown diabetes
  • just managing it by eating more to keep my sugars leveled

With Christ's strength, our Father God's wisdom and great comfort, I've chosen to let go of any anxieties and inhibitions I've had due to my diabetes and all the other complications I've been experiencing. The best way to express how I've been feeling lately is that I feel like I'm sitting in a car, without a place to go, just waiting and watching as I'm about to be hit by a huge mack truck. Not fun.

BUT.....

Our God awesome! Truly the LORD God Almighty is greater than anything and anyone in Heaven, on earth and below the earth! Our weakened mortal flesh, the trials of living in this fallen world, and the sting of death bears no eternal impact on those who have trusted in the one and only Savior of all mankind: Jesus Christ our Lord! Therefore what can being hit by a mack truck do to me? I'll tell you what it can do! It can give me an audience with an entire group of people (diabetics) that I never had any right to speak with before about their eternal salvation and/or lack of! Do you see what a gift our gracious Father God has given me? He's not just "allowed" me to have diabetes, but He's given me the gift of diabetes (as a tool) to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to the feeble, hurting and anxious. Our Lord has given me to the gift of diabetes to encourage brothers and sisters in Christ who have it and to introduce our Savior and Lord, Jesus to those who do not know Him. Oh what a glorious and generous God we love and serve! Amen?

I'd like to thank you from the bottom....top, sides and every part of my heart for all your fervent prayers for me! I KNOW our loving Father God heard you and in His compassion, He chose to lift my spirits through your prayers! Oh, the gift of the Body of Christ! What precious treasures you all are to me!

"So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal."
~2 Corinthians 4:16-18
