 Audio Burst BATTLE PLAN # 3 THE FINANCIAL COST with Skip Orem


When you’re fighting a disease, the financial cost of all of this and to worry about it can actually negatively affect your ability to get well. It’s best to get the financial situation all squared away as much as you can right at first. This cost of this disease is gonna hurt you. Even folks with insurance. The deductibles alone could bankrupt you if you’re not too careful. There are sources of financial help out there.

It’s a real help to deal with and accept the financial burden and the consequences of this disease as early in the process as possible. And if you can leave a lot of that to your partner, I’d sound selfish, but you’re trying to get well for them as well as yourself worrying about the financial impact your disease is having can negatively infect your attitude and actually work against you getting well.

This financial situation is one of the greatest causes of stress when you’re fighting a disease. Yes, the disease may end up having life-changing effects on your financial situation except that this disease gonna change your life forever anyway. You’ll be a different person. But here’s the good news. I promise you this. I’ve been through it. The change this disease is gonna cause your life. It will be a a change for the better. There’s going to be pain, physical and mental for sure, but overall it’s going to be worth it. You’ll be a better person when it ends. However it ends, I don’t even know you, but I pray for you. I pray for your partner. I pray for your family and I pray for your medical team. I pray that God will help and guide them as they provide your medical care. Your relationship with God will be the key to you becoming healthy again. I hope you’ll ask him daily for his help and protection and for the comfort of being able to lay down at night, put your head on the pillow and go to sleep in peace knowing God has your back. It’s all part of his plan. He’s known about this since the day he created you. He’s got this. He’s got your back. He will protect you.
