Lupus is an auto immune, connective tissue disease, to which there is no cure. It renders the immune system incapable of differentiating between good and bad pathogens. It causes the immune system to attack the hosts’ body, causing inflammation and breakdown of tissues, eventually causing multiple organ failure and death. Finding herself in this situation, Kay’s’ choice was to either seek God’s face or turn away. Being constantly reminded of God’s sovereignty through the many mercies and grace that she had received during the illness, she chose to have a close relationship with God, abiding in him daily. She finds comfort, and relief in knowing that God has providence over her life, and nothing touches her without first going through Him. She prays that as you read these poems you may be encouraged to seek an abiding relationship with the Lord.
