Why share all this with you?
When the rubber hits the road
One day at a time
33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Matthew 6:33-34
- Do not worry about tomorrow
- Look up verses that deal with worry, copy them, print them out and have them ready
- When I begin to worry, run to those verses, go to God and pray them out loud to Him
- Leave my worries at His feet
- DON'T take them back just because it seems like He isn't doing anything!
If you are experiencing loss after loss in your life because of chronic illness, know that my heart breaks for you as well. I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy! Unfortunately, the statistics on the impact of chronic illness on marriages is dismal. Caregiver burnout is a serious issue. I used to say to my husband that I almost felt like it was harder on him then it was on me. My body dictates how much I can do, how much I hurt, etc. However, he is strong and healthy, yet my illnesses stopped his life almost as much as they did mine.
Lord, there are so many hurting people living with chronic illness(es). This is such a difficult road to travel, yet our bodies dictate that we must. I'm so thankful that when we don't think we can stand one more day, You strengthen us. Lord I pray for every hurting person reading this. Chronic illness inevitably brings heart ache - be it from our broken bodies or our broken hearts. I pray that You would shower every reader with Your amazing Love. That they would feel You wrapped around them. Though people may leave us, You never will! Help us to always reach out to you, in both bad times and good. I pray these things in the precious Name of Jesus. Our Lord and Savior, Amen.
