Be Strong, Fear Not

A woman sitting in a wheelchair on a beach holding balloons. Her arms are spread out in praise. The words of Isaiah 35:3-4, "Strengthen the weak hands,
    and make firm the feeble knees.
Say to those who have an anxious heart,
    “Be strong; fear not!
Behold, your God
    will come with vengeance,
with the recompense of God.
    He will come and save you.”"
by Beeda Speis for Peace in the Stillness

Dear Father, Isaiah’s words (35:3-7 ESV) are my prayer to You:
Strengthen the weak hands,
and make firm the feeble knees.
Say to those who have an anxious heart,
“Be strong; fear not!
Behold, your God
will come with vengeance,
with the recompense of God.
He will come and save you.”
Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened,
and the ears of the deaf unstopped;
then shall the lame man leap like a deer,
and the tongue of the mute sing for joy.
For waters break forth in the wilderness,
and streams in the desert;
the burning sand shall become a pool,
and the thirsty ground springs of water;
in the haunt of jackals, where they lie down,
the grass shall become reeds and rushes.

Update

I’ve been drinking Liquid IV (a powdered drink mix with sodium, potassium, magnesium, electrolytes, etc.) for almost a week now and it seems to have helped a lot so apparently, for me, an electrolyte imbalance, and possibly low potassium are my “triggers” for this disease (dysautonomia). I haven’t been officially diagnosed, but am treating my symptoms as if I have the disease until I can have more tests run, but two doctors agreed that this is most likely the diagnosis. Treating the symptoms means increasing liquids, sodium, electrolytes, and rest, plus OTC medicine for individual symptoms (Tylenol, mostly). I joined a support group and there are so many who are far worse off than me. My heart breaks for them. My flare-ups are short-lived compared to some of them. Please lift them up in prayer, that they may find relief.
I had a brain scan yesterday (MRI) and all is well. I’m praising God and so very thankful!

Your Sister in Christ,
Beeda
