Relationship With Christ

John 15:5 tells us “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.”


My relationship with Christ was pivotal to me gaining contentment during my chronic pain journey. I stand strong on the Scripture that I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me. When I laid down my own will and ways of navigating life and succumbed to God’s will, my life changed.


I have been a believer of Jesus Christ for as long as I remember. I started attending church at a very young age with my maternal grandmother. I didn’t know what the sermons were about nor did I understand the level of worship that surrounded me. But I knew that something powerful was happening, and they were filled with something supernatural. I was in the youth choir, and I even remember having to recite Psalm 23 to the congregation as a child. Proverbs 22:6 says, “Train a child in the way they should go; and when they grow old they won’t depart from it,” and I can attest to that.

I strayed away as an adult and rededicated my life to Christ in 2012. However, I was still operating on my own accord after accepting Jesus Christ. Truth be told, it was subconsciously most of the time. I was so used to navigating daily without praying or making decisions without godly counsel that it was human nature for me to go on without even having a mere conversation with God. And my life was in disarray. It wasn’t until I formed an intentional relationship with Christ that my mindset changed.

Once God gave me the strength to renew my mindset, I started viewing my medical challenges differently. Through Christ, I realized that my strength lay within Him alone. I didn’t have to fight my own battles.

Overtime, Christ transformed me to believe that I am no longer suffering from pain but living with pain. Jesus Christ is a healer, and I’m eternally grateful for His healing power and how He changed me. He can and will do it for you too! Just welcome Him into your heart and believe.
