Luke Smallbone of for KING & COUNTRY has been up and down with his health for many years. He hasn’t been shy about his battle with Colitis. If you don’t know what that is, take a moment to look it up and you’ll quickly see that the symptoms are pretty unbearable. His condition was severe and for a long time, it seemed to rule his life. In fact, there were moments when he couldn’t even tour because he was so sick.
Earlier this year Luke shared about a move that seems to have had quite a positive impact. His family found a farm house in Nashville. This is said to be their retreat, a place to rest and relax together as a family. Now, we’ve gotten a new update on Luke’s journey towards healing, a very joyous one!
Late last week Luke posted:
“For the last 5 years, I’ve hoped to hear a doctor say, “Luke, you’re in remission” but that statement has eluded me up until 2 days ago. This picture was taken shortly after I woke from a small procedure that confirmed that remission has taken place. I used to wonder why I got sick but I don’t anymore. It’s been the single greatest tool in teaching me about the grace of Jesus and because of that, this disease is something I can’t help but thank God for. It’s taught me, JOY! Thanks for your prayers. Thanks for the encouragement. Thanks for your friendship! -L”
What a beautiful outlook at the trials he has faced. We are celebrating with Luke and his family during this new era. Praise God!
