If there was a modern woman with the issue of blood her name would be Bethany Lauren Myles and her issue would be Lupus Nephritis of 21 years. July 2016, I sat on hemodialysis for 3.5 hrs three times a week after the failure of my kidney transplant of 10 years. Unsure of how my life would get back to the place of freedom I once knew. Lost, confused, broken, and living in place that was not my home. I believed that moment was temporary.
Knowing that my life didn't end there; I prayed, cried, and got deeper in Jesus. He sent me back to work with the little strength I had. There was good days, bad days, days when I had to fight my reality, fight distractions, stay focused, inspire myself, hold back the tears, smile when I wanted to scream, and keeping going when I wanted to give up.
A year later happy, at peace, working two jobs (because I can) and living independently. I sit poolside surrounded by some of ATL's dopest young entrepreneurs. I have everything to smile about but laughter is my favorite medicine.
When Jesus said "Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction." Mark 5:34 He is talking about me and he is talking about you. You may not have an affliction of sickness but there is some aspect of your life at dis-ease. I am hear to tell you; your healing is tied to you getting deeper in Jesus, He will honor your faith guide you and make you well. Seek after Him and you will be laughing with me. Be blessed my sister and brother. 💋 July 2017 📸: @thomdarnell
