My Journey Of Pain
It is beginning again, my journey of pain. I am suffering again pain in my lower back because of acute scoliosis of the lumbar 4. To those who knew me just recently, I was supposed to be operated in my spinal column at my lower back because of the collapse of my lumbar 5 to my lumbar 4 due to deteriorating scoliosis. That was almost 4 years ago before my wife went to the US to work. Aside from my spinal column, I was also supposed to be operated for acute hernia and prostate gland and for inflammation of my thyroid gland. But because my wife had to surrender her medical card because of her resignation from work, I decided that I would not undergo said operations for lack of money. Since then, I surrendered my life and health to the Lord. I survived almost 4 years of those illnesses plus my hypertension and diabetes. Two years ago, I had this terrible and excruciating pain in my lower back that rendered me almost immobile and caused so much extreme pain that I almost ended my life if not for the fear of the Lord and my being a Christian. Three days later the pain left by the grace and mercy of the Lord. I have been in and out of the portals of death so many times that I lost count already. But in all these trials, I always left my fate to God who have been so gracious to me. Now I live just by the grace of God and I offer my pains as a burnt offering to His all encompassing glory. In life and death, I will always love and serve the Lord. If I can just bring one more soul to the Lord to be saved, then my life would never be in vain. "I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me" (Galatians 2:20). TO GOD BE THE GLORY NOW AND FOREVERMORE.
