To all fellow sufferers, I am writing this thread to encourage you as well as encourage myself. As we live our lives and age, we ALL experience the journey which we called life. No one ever promised us an easy time down here on planet earth; however to the people that put their hope in God, a bright future awaits in the near future. Those of us that have had tinnitus for over six months, the condition is more than likely permanent; unless we can tap into a power outside of the world's comprehension. Medical science has no cure for our affliction, however there is a God in heaven who not only created our ears, but also has the capacity to fix any problem that we have got. Now tapping into that power is the key to being cured, or receiving the necessary grace to endure this life with tinnitus. To receive power from on high, the one who has that power (God), needs to be able to trust the recipient. Another words there needs to be a trust relationship built up between us and our Creator. Personally I do not believe God is interested in curing any of us until we first learn what He is trying to teach us through this hardship. I think first lesson that needs to be learned is our total dependency upon God as Healer, Provider, and Deliver. Once we grasp this we are in a better place to receive from the hand of God. God always honors FAITH; the bible teaches that if we have faith as big as a grain of a mustard seed, we can speak to mountains in our lives and they will move. There are several reasons that have a spiritual implication that could have brought tinnitus into our lives. Poor decisions we made in the past concerning our ears could be the culprit (being around loud noises without the proper ear protection). The bible speaks of many adverse medical conditions that come upon people living in disobedience to the Commandments of God, in Deuteronomy 28. Sometimes God allows hardships to refine our Character and give us a greater capacity to show empathy to other sufferers. In (2 Cor. 12:6-8), Paul the Apostle was given a health condition to keep him humble because God had used his life so greatly. The bible speaks of having a persistent faith in (Luke 18:1-8), a tenacity that will not give up until one receives an answer. If you have been praying for God's intervention, keep praying, if you have not prayed yet, maybe you are only a prayer away from being cured. Always remember, All things are possible to him that believes.
