Like "I am a lifelong Christian and am commited to Jesus Christ. Believe me I seek to understand about my diabetes so I will not bow my knee to it but will bend my knee ON the neck of that diabetes beast and will keep on top of it as long as I live. If asked why God does not just heal me of diabetes, I answer with what The apostle Paul was told when he asked that the "Satan's messenger" (it was thought to be an eye condition see 2 Cor. 12 6-10) My answer is like that of Paul's "8 Three times I pleaded with the Lord about this, that it should leave me. 9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” (2 Co 12:8-9 ESV) I think there are levels of understanding. Understanding with the mind is one thing, and I seek to impart that whenever I answer a question. Understanding because one experiences something is a whole different kind of understanding, and I seek to help a non-sufferer NOT understand due to experiencing it. James"
