Does God want me to be a Massage Therapist? // July 2011
I made the “official” decision to go to the Massage Therapy school. Sent in my “yes”, scheduled my registration… the next day, I got my blood result test back that I had taken several weeks ago. I learned that I have Rheumatoid Arthritis.
It’s not that bad… very low on their scale, actually. Some days I completely forget about it. Other days it is simply present but I barely notice. But about once a week, it is an excruciating pain that constantly feels like a guinea pig’s teeth are clamped down on my joints and won’t let go. I’m supposed to go back to the doctor in 6 months to determine if this is getting better or worse.
Honestly though, I am not going to let this getting my way. This isn’t God saying no. At least not yet. God can work miracles. He can work through me despite my weaknesses. I’ve changed a lot of things since I found out, I’m eating healthier and exercising more. If God is leading me to be a massage therapist who has arthritis, I am all there. And I’m really excited to accept this challenge.
