I was diagnosed with epilepsy when I was 16 years old. I had to take medication to control the seizures but it seemed like the neurologist couldn’t find a medicine that would control it. At times I felt like there wasn’t any hope and I would have to take medication the rest of my life. Then one night at home I noticed a picture of Jesus Christ hanging on the living room wall and I thought about how he died for me on the cross. He gave his own life. So I stopped looking down and started looking up after that. Before I went to sleep I got down on my knees and began to pray. It had been ten years since that night now and I was still having seizures but I didn’t lose my faith in God–I prayed even more. I know my family and friends were praying too and I had already been through several accidents due to the siezures but I thanked God for watching me through it all. I would never have made it through many of them by my own strength I know. Well, it was on March 14, 2001, when I had brain surgery. I haven’t had any problems since that day and I thank God each day and believe more and more what the Lord can do if you have faith in him.
