God has you
About God Has You
Twenty eight years and two cancers free, I was living my passion as a naturopathic doctor. I had the privilege of teaching and guiding others across the globe towards their own healing, when suddenly I found myself in the midst of a full blown adrenal crash. My body had once again failed me due to the stresses of life. I not only crumbled, I basically flat-lined for a grueling 11 months mentally, emotionally and physically.
Day after day, I wondered how on earth I would ever push through the exhaustion and heartache that I had experienced at that time in my life. My colleagues interjected that if I didn't rest and recover, my heart would give out. My entire being vibrated 24/7, it was a symptom of the crash that I had learned about in my work, but could have never realized the uneasy intensity until it became my symptom. There were many days that I had welcomed death, but would try with all of my might to survive.
Back and forth in my taxed mind, I swayed between the two emotions, death or survival, which would I choose? I felt I was walking a constant tightrope with no net to catch me...until one day, the day that I decided to give up... which also became the day that I heard the most powerful voice whisper to me lovingly, "God Has You".
Those three powerful words became my mantra that day; they became my saving grace, my hope and my belief. They carried me through until once again I was well, and they have resonated with me ever since. Every alarm I would set to get me to the next moment or the next task, through the next appointment or through the next work shift, and to the next day, I set my every alarm labeled "God Has You" every 15 minutes, then every 30, then 45...always recalling the voice that saved me on that crucial day of giving up or going forward in faith. It became my inspiration from that point on.
In time, I told God that I would fly to Arizona and climb a mountain with my son, and if I made it to the top, I would come back down knowing that I was healed by Him. All the way up, I told myself "God Has You", "God Has You", "God Has You"...and He certainly did. Today, I am healed, I am whole and I am well. There has not been a day that has gone by that in all of my endeavors I know with all of my heart, "God Has You Kimberly Kaye Fogel". Life is good! Amen!
