Love yourself by caring for you for a change.

“Beloved, I pray that in every way you may prosper and enjoy good health, as your soul also prospers” 3 John 1:2, Berean Study Bible.

I knew something was wrong when, out of anger and frustration, I called a pastor friend of mine an a**hole and told her we were no longer friends. I know. I surprised even myself. I knew something was wrong when I found myself in a bathroom with a cord around my neck but couldn’t go through with it. Something was not right. The devil was telling me I was crazy, but I knew deep down something was not right in my body. I told my husband, I’m going to see a doctor, something’s not right. I went to the doctor. Hadn’t been to a doctor in years. After tests were done, they discovered, as I suspected, that I was experiencing early menopause. Low estrogen levels and severe PMS symptoms were turning me into someone I didn’t even recognize. Sitting in the doctor’s chair, he explained what was happening. I began to tear up. “So, I’m not crazy,” I asked. “No, definitely not,” he said.

Thank you, Jesus.

He prescribed me some medication for estrogen. I got in my car and immediately began researching natural alternatives. I felt empowered. I felt full of hope. I felt re-energized because now I knew what was wrong, and I knew I was going to be ok. Knowledge is power. I immediately went to the store and purchased all of the natural medicines and herbs, healthy foods, water, and began exercising. Glory to God, my body feels so good. So balanced. So calm, cool, and collected. My mind is clear, and my emotions are settled.

When I apologized to my pastor friend and explained to her what was going on at the time, she said, I knew that wasn’t you. She said how much she loved me and how she started to pray immediately. This world needs more friends like her. I sent her some flowers and thanked the Lord for her friendship.

Ladies, we are experiencing an all-out attack of the devil on our very existence, but we can’t fight the enemy if we are only prayed up. We must become aware of what is going on in our bodies. We must give attention to both the spiritual and natural aspects of our lives. The devil got some of us thinking we’re crazy when we’re not! He got some of us thinking we would be better off dead when in reality, our bodies need proper care and attention. You’ve loved on everyone else. It’s time you love yourself by caring for you for a change. Love yourself by understanding what your body needs and give it what it needs. God desires that you prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers. That will be your reality, as it is mine.

Prayer: Father, thank you for helping me understand the needs of my spirit and the needs of my body. Help me pay attention when something’s not right and do what’s necessary. Guide me, Lord, as I pursue wholeness—mind, body, and soul. I declare I prosper, and I’m in health, even as my soul prospers. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

  8. Long time reader but new poster here. Just wanted to thank you for this very timely word, Kesha. My own experience is so similar. Late last year I began experiencing mood swings, bouts of anger, depression, and I would just break down and cry for no reason. I was lashing out at everyone, including God. I started having sleepless nights, crazy (disturbing) dreams and feelings of utter hopelessness. I’ve always had irregular cycles so menopause never entered my mind. I thought it was several years off for me but it was not. Not knowing that, I continued to push through all of this and I got sicker. The enemy of course took full advantage of the situation. All of my life I have ignored my own needs to care for everyone else and it finally caught up to me. I was raised in dysfunction and groomed to put everyone before myself. I was made to feel guilty and ashamed if I put my own needs first and was still living in this mindset. Early 2020 my health began to really fail. The enemy’s attacks became stronger with whispers that I was going to die soon because God is displeased with me. However, I know God is healing me. I too saw a Dr. and am still under a doctor’s care. Because I ignored my body I made matters worse. Like you, I get the Dr.’s diagnosis and then go research natural healing options and foods online. Slowly but surely the Lord is restoring my health but I know I have a ways to go. If there is one thing I can take away from all of this to share with my Sisters it is this: It is necessary (not just okay) for you to love yourself. Love yourself. Tell somebody ‘no’ and check in with yourself. How are you feeling inside, really? That backache, headache, stomachache, anxiety, sleeplessness or whatever it is going on in your body is trying to tell you something. Please don’t ignore it. I’ve lived in such a depleted emotional and physical state for so long I was seriously ill and didn’t even know it! I didn’t know how to listen to my own body. I’m now tuned into myself in a way that I never felt allowed to before and maybe this is my lesson in all of this so that I can share it with others. Learn to listen to your body. Thank you for all you do and health and blessings to all of my sisters in the Dot-K family. I’m praying for all of us.

  9. Thank you Kesha for sharing i also had to see the doctor for menapause
    My doctor prefers the natural approach she put me on hormone treatment bioidentical progestrone this one that does not cause cancer

  10. Good morning to all you ladies I understand for what Mrs. Trippett was going through I was the same and even worst tried everything over counter ask questions to my dr. And she said not much Well I was going through Pre menopause at The age of 35 and now I am 55 years old. When I went to go and visit my sister in Arkansas she told me about this natural remedy that’s made from broccoli and yams and their natural remedy from (Heathrow anti-aging wellness center)you might want to look that up and all they specialize is in compressed vitamins natural 🌿 herbs. No Medication. I went to the doctor her name with Dr. Linda King because I live here in Florida I did a lot of research and my sister is a living testimony no more hot flashes fatigue foggy head night sweats mood swings any of this. But first you have to go to get your blood work done so your doctor will know where your hormone levels are at my hormone levels are at the lowest is 10 when you’re supposed to be higher than that. Doctors are not gonna tell you anything about these wellness centers😳or pharmacist that specializes in compressed vitamins from because all they wanna do is give you medication or if they give you hormones it’s filled with a lot of fillers and bad testosterone which will cause cancer. Just wanna let you ladies know that these anti-aging wellness centers that the doctor specializes in or not covered by insurance 😐but they are expensive but is well worth it I had mine done on September 1 2020 it takes about a week for it to get inside the body. I’m letting you know that you need to look it up because I’m feeling a little bit more better now I feel that I can think I don’t feel fatigue it’s well worth it insurance does not cover it unless the insurance is in their network. Please do your research your doctor will not tell you about them I found out through my sister. May God Bless all the Menopause ladies and all that are going through a different change is post or premenopausae. 🙏🏽
