Being diagnosed with an illness is never easy, whether it happens to you, to a relative, or a friend. How is it possible not to feel alone at this moment? Jesus, the Ecumenical Christ, the Divine Statesman, teaches in His Gospel according to Luke 21:18 and 19 that, “Not a hair of your head will perish [without God’s consent]. Stand firm, and you will win your Souls.”
That is why we are never unprotected! During medical treatment, the illness may become more serious, and much bigger concerns may arise, but keep your spirit in good health: feed it with Hope, Happiness, and the best sentiments! When you realize what you have already achieved, learned, or overcome to get where you are now, you will see that you have become more resistant to pain and also even more perceptive of the suffering of other people. Even when your body is weakened, it is possible to have a strong Spirit, trusting in the Heavenly Father to overcome all challenges.
Prayer will bring you tranquility and ensure you do not become unbalanced. Pray with us, ask for God’s help. You will find the courage you need to keep up with your treatment and overcome the illness when you combine the indispensable medical care with the strength and Wisdom of the Heavenly Father. The President-Preacher of the Religion of God, of the Christ, and of the Holy Spirit, José de Paiva Netto, teaches us that, “In happiness or in pain, human beings are never alone. Whether they know it or not, and whether they believe in it or not, they have God for them.”
