“JESUS IS WITH ME”, JUSTIN BIEBER SAYS AS HE BATTLES RAMSAY HUNT SYNDROME
Justin Bieber has revealed that he is suffering from a rare condition that has paralyzed one side of his face.
Last week, the Canadian singer canceled a number of upcoming shows because of illness, and on Friday he told fans he has been diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt syndrome.
Ramsay Hunt syndrome is a complication resulting from shingles that affects the nerves around the ear, face and mouth.
On Monday, the Canadian pop star updated his fans on his condition via his Instagram page saying that Jesus was with him “in the midst of the storm”.
After previously asking his 240 million Instagram followers to pray for him, Bieber said in his latest update that each day has “gotten better” and that he has “found comfort” in God.
“By this point in my life I realize storms come and go,” the 28-year-old wrote.
“Jesus continues to remind me that he is with me in the midst of the storm. It’s not about the storm. It’s that we are NEVER ALONE AND HE UNDERSTANDS.”
He said this difficult experience has reminded him that God “knows all of me” and still loves him.
“He knows the darkest parts of me that I want no one to know about and he constantly welcomes me into his loving arms,” he said.
He also said he was trusting that his current ill-health will not last forever.
“This perspective has given me peace during this horrific storm that I’m facing,” he said.
“I know in this storm will pass but in the meantime JESUS IS WITH ME.”
