Hebrews 2 : 10 11 : 8
For it became him whom are all things, and by whom all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed ; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.
When we have an illness or have to deal with pain and suffering in our life day after day sometimes it is necessary to find a new direction in our lives. It can be scary to redefine yourself but you will feel a stronger connection to God in the process.
A woman on TV the other day said that her daughter turned an ugly illness into a beautiful thing. Her daughter started visiting young people in the hospital that had illnesses and she was comforting them and supporting them in their greatest hour of need. Just one positive word can give a person the will to battle through most anything in life.
My illness has made a very strong connection to God in my life. I became a Lay Minister to help strengthen my visits with people in rest homes and to spread Gods good works. The blogging group I belong to has encouraged me to be more vocal and outgoing in life. Our blogging group are wonderful cheerleaders for each other through thick and thin.
Do not let an illness encompass you. You live life on your terms and do not let an illness define you in life. Use your illness to help others find new directions and positive things in their life. Everyday is a gift from God so use all of your days wisely and do Gods will in all ways that are possible for you to complete. Life has many ups and downs. Do not let the downs keep you down rise up above them with God by your side.
Make time in each day to let others know that you cherish and love them. Spread Gods good works whenever and however you can. God be with you today and always through your many journeys in life.
