I never quite understood the journey I would go through once I was diagnosed with Epilepsy. This small part of who I am is a consistent trial of understanding, trust, and faith. I’ve realized, after a year and a half that this trial has made me so much stronger as a person.
Yes, I’ve changed in numerous ways. Some pieces of me have weakened while others are more defined. What I am thankful for the most is the privilege to get to know God better through my struggles and blessings. Both are abundantly crucial, irrevocably heavy and true to my story and walk with Him. I don’t know why it is so easy for me to forget, but He has always known what he is doing.
Today marks a day of strength and happiness, grace and remembrance, a day to rejoice for my growth and recognize the journey still ahead. A day without pain is equally worth living and learning as a day with pain and misunderstanding.
