There is No Cure and God is Still God

There is no cure for diabetes… and yet, God is STILL God.

I live with a bodily dysfunction for which there is no cure.

There is no cure.

There is no cure.

I live with a broken pancreas and prayer hasn’t fixed it.

I accept it.

I accept it.

I accept it just as I accept the crucifixion.

Just as I accept there is no cure for HIV/AIDS, MS, Sickle Cell, or Cancer.

There is no cure for diabetes… and yet, God is STILL God.

Accepting this truth is not easy for some and it’s almost impossible for others,

but accepting the truth has strengthen me.

Because I know now more than I ever have that faith without works is dead.

I have the faith that God will keep me as healthy as I can be with a broken pancreas, and that’s pretty healthy.

if I do the work: eat right, on time, and exercise.

If I don’t do the work, I will die.

I have the power to do the work, I have the power to control, I have the power to manage.

There is no cure for diabetes… and yet, God is Still God.

It doesn’t have to be either I believe in God and reject that there is no cure

or I accept there is no cure and lose belief in God.

These things are not opposites.

There is no cure for diabetes… and yet, God is still God.

    I needed this thought today. I’m bummed out. Had a few weeks of horrible readings because I had some emotional issues and I pigged out like a fool. I know better! Sitting here in the Dr’s office picked up the fall 2017 issue of diabetes focus…blessed my life, Thank You Jesus!

    I agree. It’s refreshing to find someone who continues to believe despite the challenges he/she faces.
