Testimony: Taylor Hundley
I accepted Jesus as my Savior when I was young. I have gone to church my entire life. However, I was not truly striving to live for Him. This changed when I was in my late teens. From the time I was 17 until I was 19, I went through a large storm in my life. I had health issues that caused me to pass out and have seizures multiple times a day. This affected many aspects of my life. There was a period of time where I was constantly in and out of hospitals, seeing different specialists with no answers. After some time, when multiple diagnoses finally came, I was told that there was no cure.
For a while, I had the attitude, “Why me?” It was hard for me to have a positive attitude, because I was focused on myself and my weakness, instead of the Lord and His strength. I had a realization that something needed to change. I started praying more and changing the way I prayed. I sought to strengthen my relationship with the Lord and stopped praying only for healing. I started praying for His will for my life, guidance with understanding, and strength. I focused on Him and not the storm.
It was during this time that I truly found strength when I was at my lowest. I started seeing days where instead of 20 “episodes” a day of passing out and having seizures, I would have five, and then one. It has now been over four years that I have been healed from something I was told had no cure. I look at life differently now. I truly value my relationship with the Lord, I seek Him, I read His word, and I strive to live a life honoring God.
There are many verses that I focused on during this storm. This section speaks of the strength that I found during my weakness.
“But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:9-10
