Former pastor Victoria Mejias shares her struggle with multiple sclerosis. Prior to diagnosis, she received satisfaction in feeling as if she could accomplish whatever goals she pursued. But then, mysterious symptoms drove her to the doctor. After a series of tests, she learned she had multiple sclerosis. She was forced to face her fear of weakness. Initially, she wrestled with God, but she’s since discovered the secret to true strength, and that isn’t found within herself. Though outwardly she may appear weak, by God’s grace working in her, she believes she is now stronger than ever.
