Keep Moving Forward Through the Fire

According to Greek mythology, the Phoenix is a long-lived, immortal bird that cyclically regenerates itself. It obtains new life by rising from the ashes of its predecessor.

Have you ever felt hopeless or burdened down by life? Have you ever felt as if you have no control over your body or what happens to it due to unexplained illness and pain? If you have, you are not alone. Millions suffer from undiagnosed illnesses and unexplained pain in their bodies. Does this mean that there is no hope for a cure or for a meaningful useful future? No, it doesn’t. It simply means that you must keep seeking answers. You must be your own best advocate for healing, when your health throws you a curveball, change your position.

Silent Opponent

My youngest daughter Hannah has struggled with unexplained health issues and pain for essentially half of her young life. There have been many long days and restless nights of suffering for us both. Even though I wouldn’t dare equate my level of suffering from that of my child’s, it has been truly devastating to watch her suffer from this physically and emotionally draining rollercoaster ride. No parent wants their child to suffer. A feeling of helplessness envelops you and you feel like a failure as a parent. Yet, you are supposed to be their protector.

Along this road of suffering and continuously fighting this silent, but formidable opponent, Hannah though broken, is not beaten. She finds just a little strength on some days to research the symptoms that are occurring in her body. She is looking for any clue that may help her feel better. Any clue that may lead to an exact diagnosis. I help her. I have fought with her by her side since the onset of symptoms. At first, we hoped that her doctors could prescribe one little white pill that would restore her health and energetic youth. Anyway, that was our hope. Unfortunately, it didn’t happen. 

She is one of the smartest and bravest people I’ve ever met. Who of us could battle such a torturous demon for over a decade and still remain in tune with the suffering around them? Hannah has not allowed this illness to turn her into a bitter broken being without hope. She is empathetic towards others. She helps our family by easing small burdens, even as she winces from the pain in her body. 

Walk through the Fire

Therefore, even as you walk through the fire, whatever your fire may be, you must not allow it to consume you or alter the true essence of who you are. Suffering can steal life from the spirit if you allow it to. However, it can also serve as a sort of rebirth and introduce you to yourself. You have value and gifts to offer the world. You can rise from the ashes stronger, wiser, and free. Not as a replica, but as a better version of who you were destined to be, sculpted by the pain and the trauma of illness. Which will not defeat you nor delay what the great spirit purposed for your life. It was never meant to defeat you. You must keep moving forward. Your freedom, joy, and health lie beyond the flames.
