102 year-old Midred “Gerry” Schappals can be described using one word: Survivor. She beat the Spanish flu (BUBONIC VIRUS) in 1918, two cancer experiences and now COVID-19. She was only a baby when she caught the Spanish flu in 1918 – the first pandemic that swept through the United States and indeed the world. She was only about 10 months old when she had it. The doctor had given up on her and said that she would likely die. She had high fever!
They didn’t even bother to pin the diaper on her when they changed her because she was not moving. But she made it. She then went to college, got married, had two children and became a teacher. In her 60s and 70s, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and colon cancer. “She had radiation treatment for the breast cancer, and she had a surgery and a whole chemotherapy regimen for the colon cancer.
And she survived them both” her daughter Julia Schappals said. Fast forward to 2020 – she came down with COVID-19. But even at wants to live to 150 – and nobody is doubting that! The 102 year-old said the secret to life is to live each day to the fullest and to not “sweat the small stuff” (STOP THE WORRIES OVER EVERYTHING).
Wow! The Holy Ghost wants you to know that LIFE IS HARD but not IMPOSSIBLE! What is happening to others will PASS OVER YOU because your case is different (today’s 2nd scripture)! You were given this life because you are strong enough to live it! No matter how 2020 has been, refuse to be a victim! Remember that great things take time!
Even if LIFE HAS BEEN ROUGH or you have travelled the road of bitter delays, always remember what David said in Psalm 23:4 – “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort me.” Make up your mind to WALK THROUGH every VALLEY! Don’t park there and pity yourself! SELF-PITY is the fastest bullet of death in the valley (battles) of life. No matter the STORMS, remember that without RAIN, NOTHING GROWS! Determine to embrace the storms of your life!
As you refuse to quit, as you refuse to allow DEPRESSION, as you refuse to compare yourself to others, oh, as you refuse to become cold in your fellowship with God, THE WORLD WILL DESCRIBE YOU AS A SURVIVOR! Hold on and hold out!
