I am thankful to be a child of God
When I was 2 years old I developed epilepsy. The doctors thought it was a reaction from vaccinations. As I grew I always felt like a burden to my mom because it was hard and embarrassing for her. I felt unworthy and inferior. When I was 15 years old I was feeling so unworthy and under alot of stress which would cause me to have seizures I remembered my great grandma who always believed in God so I said a prayer and asked God that if He was really real He would take my epilepsy away. It wasn't until about 5 years later I decided to stop taking my medicine because I hadn't had a seizure for years. When I stopped taking my medication I lived in fear that the seizures would return. When a couple years passed and they never returned God reminded me of the prayer I prayed when I was 15. I was so thankful and that was the beginning of my relationship with God. A few years later (I'm not sure exactly how many) when I was reading my bible I came across Matthew 4:24 and then I knew it was God confirming that it was He who took away my epilepsy and not just luck. I was so happy and thankful that God loved me and has always been there for me even when no one cared. He protected me from alcohol, drugs and suicide. For years I never understood why I never got caught in that trap because I was the perfect candidate feeling unworthy and alone with no one to talk to. After reading Matthew 4:24 it wasn't long and I got baptized. I was so in love with God and was convinced He loved me too. I have a scar on my arm from burning myself with the curling iron when I had a seizure and it is a constant reminder to me of what God did for me. may God Bless and keep you too!
